    Algebra II is a general education course that will count as one of the four mathematics credits required for high school graduation. The course will attempt to take the concepts learned in Algebra I from sufficient to proficient, as well as acover Algebra II concepts. In Algebra II, the students will concentrate on graphing and solving higher order equations, as well as radical, exponential, and trigonometric functions. 

     

    Suggested Supplies

    All items are to be brought to class daily.

    Supplies:         calculator (any)                   notebook (any)                 pencils/erasers
