This is a 32-week, 90 min. accelerated course in algebra content. Algebra 1 is a pre-requisite to this course. Students will further their studies from Algebra 1 and see new material on matrices, logarithms, exponential functions, polynomial and quadratic functions, sequences and series, and transformations of functions. Students will also use a graphing calculator to aid in problem solving. This course will teach them more advanced calculator usage techniques that will help improve ACT/SAT scores.
This course will be supplemented with tutor-made video lessons weekly and online assignments through a game-based program. Class time will be spent reinforcing video lessons through hands-on activities and extending the lessons for advanced learners. Students will need to come to class having viewed the lessons and completed their daily online assignments in order to stay on track.
