Algebra 2, Course Syllabus

1. 1. Welcome to Algebra 2
2. 2. Algebra 2 is a high school mathematics course designed for students who have successfully acquired and mastered, basic Algebraic skills. In this course, we will consider the properties of real numbers, linear and quadratic equations (and their graphs), functions, systems of equations, polynomials, rational expressions, and basic data analysis. This is relatively the same as Algebra 1, but at a slightly different level. We will go on to discuss such topics as exponential and logarithmic relations, sequences and series, and then finish with basic trigonometric functions.
