Algebra 2

Algebra 2 builds on the foundations established in Algebra 1, expanding the student’s understanding of problem-solving and algebraic concepts. This course is recommended for the college-bound student. Students will extend their knowledge of quadratic, polynomial, and exponential functions, and then explore logarithmic and trigonometric functions.

Students will graph and interpret key features of functions, construct and apply mathematical and graphical models to solve problems, work with complex numbers, and describe and correct errors. Students will then create and apply statistical models, find specific terms of arithmetic and geometric sequences, and calculate the summation of series. Finally, students will interpret equations of conics, use conics to model events, determine the values of trigonometric functions, and interpret their graphs.

Students must have access to a graphing calculator for this course. See calculator recommendations in Algebra 1.

Completion of Algebra 1 is required. Additionally, completion of or concurrent enrollment in Geometry is strongly recommended.

There are 10 exams in Algebra 2.

Algebra can briefly be described as the study of mathematical symbols and the rules for manipulating these symbols. It is considered a unifying thread of most of mathematics. In this course, you will be introduced to numerous mathematical concepts that you have previously encountered in Algebra 1 and Geometry. Additionally, many algebraic concepts can be utilized in a variety of professions like construction, music, scientific research, education, business, engineering, cooking, architecture, and medicine. The study guide is designed to help prepare students for exams by including additional examples that are explicitly applicable to this course.

Please note that students will need a graphing calculator for this course. We recommend the TI-84
Plus by Texas Instruments, but any graphing calculator capable of graphing algebraic equations,
plotting data points, and performing regressions is fine.

Completion of Algebra 1 is required. Additionally, completion of or concurrent enrollment in Geometry is strongly recommended.

There are 10 exams in Algebra 2.

Homeschooling has taught me a lot of new things.  It has taught me self-discipline and made me take my studies more seriously than before.  I have learned to study properly.  The books and materials were very helpful.  It is a fun experience to do homeschooling.  Many people are amazed to know that I did homeschooling.  This has opened and changed a lot of people’s minds.

American School has more to offer than any public school.  Two of my children, two of my grandchildren, and one niece completed their high school education with American School, and my sister and I are enrolled at the present time.

– Marilyn from Missouri

I learned a lot, and the skills are helping me in my college classes.

The most important thing I learned was how to schedule my time and organize my work.  The study guides helped to show me how much work to do at one time.  I’m glad to be part of American School.

I greatly enjoyed American School.  The instructors’ comments were very helpful.  I enjoyed this method of learning.  I feel I have learned a lot more than I did in public school.  I was able to keep up with school through all the moves I made without going through the hassle of switching school systems.  I enjoyed the honesty of the

instructors and the overall program.   I will recommend American School to anyone interested.
