Algebra II starts where Algebra I leaves off, building on its concepts. It prepares students for the study of pre-calculus. Topics include review of Algebra I concepts; functions; systems of linear equations and inequalities; quadratic functions and complex numbers; exponential and logarithmic functions; and rational and irrational algebraic functions. The text used is a two-year book. The second half is used for Pre-Calculus. Homework will average 3 - 5 hours per week.
Minimum age of 12 on the first day of class. Successful completion of VSA Algebra I or comparable course in the previous 24 months is strongly encouraged. Prior completion of Geometry is also strongly encouraged.
