Algebra II Honors
This is a fast paced course that emphasizes strengthening of Algebra I skills while taking them to the next level of difficulty and integrating new concepts. Throughout the year we will discuss, among other things, linear systems, factoring, exponents, and conic sections. This course covers more material and moves at a faster pace than the college prep class. We will work on note taking and problem solving skills. Students are encouraged to participate in class. Creative ways to learn and remember concepts are incorporated. Students are strongly encouraged to possess a scientific calculator. We will, on occasion, use the school’s graphing calculators to further explore a concept. This course may be taken concurrently with geometry.
Prerequisite: 97% in Algebra I or 93% in Algebra I Honors or 95% in Geometry or 93% in Geometry Honors. Teacher recommendation required.
