Type: Full Year; register for all three trimesters – online version
This course includes all content and concepts taught in Algebra 2, but at a faster pace to allow for units on the study of trigonometry. In addition to everything covered in Algebra 2, Students will study circle trigonometry and learn basics needed for work in Pre-Calculus. The course is structured around problems and investigations that build conceptual understanding of algebra topics. Students become comfortable with using general equations to represent functions and relations as well as with interpreting general equations to describe a situation. In particular, they develop the connections between and among the various core ideas of the course and will frequently use technology tools (such as Desmos) to support their learning. Students are encouraged to investigate, form conjectures, and then justify their thinking to develop their reasoning skills. In this course, students can expect to learn asynchronously through daily videos and activities, discussions through Schoology forums, and independent practice. Students can expect to be assessed through skills assessments and learning demonstrations.
Learning Mode: This course is fully online. Classes are primarily delivered asynchronously through online learning experiences that students can engage in “on demand,” at any time of day, or night. There are some virtual “live” learning sessions and/or small group learning experiences and expectations defined by each course instructor. Online courses are a great choice for students who are independent learners, excel at learning at their own pace in an “on-demand” environment and who may benefit from the flexibility in their schedule.
