Course Syllabus

Algebra 2 is the third year in a four year college preparatory sequence. It


aims to apply and extend what students have learned in previous courses by
focusing on: finding connections between multiple representations of
functions; transfromations of different function families; finding zeros of
polynomials and connecting them to graphs and equations of polynomials;
and modeling periodic phenomena with trigonometry.
