Prerequisite: Successful completions of Honors Algebra I (or teacher recommendation)
(NCAA Approved Course) See Section XV for Honors/Advanced Level Criteria
This is an accelerated course that focuses on an in-depth understanding of algebra. The course continues an in-depth study of functions, which is extended to quadratics, exponential, rational and trigonometric functions. Topics include algebraic vocabulary, variations and graphs, complex numbers, sequences, probability and trigonometry, with as many applications as possible. The course sets the stage for a higher-level study of mathematics. This course requires a greater degree of independence and competence in critical thinking and communicating mathematically. The application of mathematical concepts to trade experiences reinforces the curriculum. The use of a graphing calculator is encouraged.
