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. The course is structured around problems and investigations that build a 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. Students are encouraged to investigate, form conjectures, and then justify their thinking to develop their reasoning skills. Students will study circle trigonometry and learn the basics needed for work in Pre-Calculus.
Note: This course is fully online, it requires the student to work independently through Schoology. Students will engage with the instructor and other students in a highly collaborative environment that utilizes discussion boards, independent learning activities and virtual learning modules.
