Mathematics

Algebra 2 builds upon previous algebraic concepts such as Powers, Roots, and Radicals and expand to more advanced levels such as Polynomials and Factoring and Conic Sections – Hyperbolas. Sophisticated applications are found in Exponents and Logs where you will develop special scales for measurement, used for the Richter scale for earthquake magnitude, and the pH scale for acidity. Methods for solving Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities and Rational Functions are covered in our more basic topics which provide strong proficiency to master Matrices and Determinants. Algebra 2 is a highly integrated subject that establishes strong foundational skills and supports mastery at more advanced levels that are sure to challenge you.
