This sixteen week Algebra 2 course will fulfill the first semester of a high school Algebra 2. The class will cover six units. We will spend two weeks on Unit 1: Equations and Inequalities. Students will review and expand on simplifying and solving equations and inequalities, including absolute value equations and inequalities. We will spend the next three weeks on Unit 2: Linear Functions. Students will revisit the concepts of relations, functions, domain, and range. We will review and...
Students will: Simplify and solve equations and inequalities, including absolute value equations and inequalities. Identify relations, functions, domain, range, roots, and end behavior. Write and graph linear functions in standard form, slope-intercept form, and point-slope form. Apply linear function to real world situations, and find the linear regression. Solve systems of linear equations with up to three variables and systems of linear inequalities.I parent functions, graph piecewise Identify functions based on their equation and graph. Transform absolute value, linear, and quadratic functions. Solve quadratics by graphing, factoring, applying the square root method, completing the square, and using quadratic formula. Identify both real and complex roots. Apply knowledge of quadratics to real world situations, and find quadratic regressions. Use exponent rules. Perform operations on polynomials. Graph and find roots of polynomial functions. Factor trinomials, polynomials with four terms, and the sum and differences of squares and cubes. Solve polynomial equations by factoring.
Students will be provided with individual practice assignments after each class. In addition, after most Thursday class meetings, student will be asked to complete a video lesson. The video will be of me teaching the lesson in the same format as I teach during class meetings. A You Tube link with the lesson will be provided.
You will need a graphing calculator, or access to a graphing calculator app such as Desmos. You will also need access to a printer to print guided notes and homework assignments for each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be informally assessed based on class participation. If parents would like a percentage score to be given at the end of the course, students will be required to turn in practice assignments and complete tests. Otherwise, tests will be optional and students will not be required to turn in practice assignments.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
