Note: Students choose one of blocks 1 or 2.
This course is designed to provide an introduction to the concepts covered in an Algebra II class. Students are first introduced to the various families of functions and their properties, including linear, absolute value, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions. Emphasis is then placed on polynomial functions - specifically quadratics - and the various techniques for finding their roots. Students explore factoring techniques, the quadratic equation, and polynomial division, among others. Time permitting, students may also examine exponential and logarithmic functions, conic sections, and systems of linear equations, as well as various applications.
Note: This course is not intended to replace a full year study of Algebra II.
