CLASS STRUCTURE This is the second quarter of a full-year Algebra 2 course intended for students who have taken Quarter 1 of the same course. In this inquiry-based course, your learner will continue to discover the algebraic principles that form the basis for calculus, statistics, and other college level mathematics courses. Most of the lessons in this course will involve an investigation in which students are guided to observe a concept. In some cases, students may work together on the...
Problem sets are assigned for each lesson and can be completed individually. Learners do not need to turn in their completed problem sets as homework -- instead, they are provided with a video answer key that they can use to check their own work and ensure that they are on the right track.
Learners will need the following: 1. A copy of _Discovering Advanced Algebra_ (2nd Ed.) published by Key Curriculum Press. Please be sure you have the correct edition of this book. I choose the 2nd edition because it offers an excellent curriculum but can still be found at an affordable price. This textbook can be purchased used for as little as $5 ISBN: 1559539844 ISBN13: 9781559539845 2. A pad of graph paper. 3. A college-ruled notebook, sharp pencils and a good eraser. 4. A graphing calculator (such as the TI-83) or consistent access to this free online graphing calculator: https://www.geogebra.org/. Students who reliably have access to the web graphing calculator do not need to purchase a graphing calculator, however if you plan to join classes from a phone or a device where you cannot easily access the online graphing calculator during class, I would strongly recommend investing in a handheld graphing calculator. This materials list is the same for the entire year of the course. With the exception of replacing consumables (such as purchasing an additional notebook if the first one gets filled up), families will not need to purchase any additional supplies in order to continue with Quarters 3 and 4 of this course.
Periodic quizzes and tests are assigned to be completed and returned to me for feedback. When requested, a grade will be provided based on these assessments.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
PRE-REQUISITE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS This is Quarter 2 of a year-long course. It is expected that learners have taken Quarter 1 of this course before enrolling in this section. In order to complete the full course, students will need to continue with Quarters 3 and 4. Each quarter is scheduled back-to-back at the same days/times to provide continuity, with Quarter 3 starting in Feburary, and Quarter 4 starting in May and wrapping up at the end of June.
This course uses the 2nd Edition of the Key Curriculum Press textbook _Discovering Advanced Algebra_.
