**Credits**: 1

**Recommended**: 10th, 11th

**Prerequisite: **Algebra 1, Geometry

**Test Prep**: CLEP College Algebra, CLEP College Mathematics

**Course Description: **This course covers advanced algebra topics including: linear equations, matrices, absolute value, inequalities, factoring, parabolas, quadratics, complex numbers, exponents, polynomials, functions, composite functions, inverse functions, rational expressions, conic sections, probability mechanics, algebraic and geometric sequences and series and basic trigonometric functions. Most topics include solving and graphing equations. Students will learn by using online texts and videos. Students will do daily problem solving, including SAT prep questions. Grading will be based on quizzes, tests and a final exam.

This course comes from Algebra 2 Online! and Intermediate Algebra; it also uses Math is Fun, Yay Math! and Khan Academy.

Algebra 2 Online has taken down the assignments we linked to. We were able to copy their questions and answers before they closed. We may be switching back some assignments when they have their update ready. Because of the graphs and complicated equations, much of it was put on our site as images. If an image is ever too small for comfort, just enlarge it on your screen. (For example: Use ctrl + on Windows, your fingers on a mobile device, etc.)

**Notes**:

You will sometimes need graph paper. I will not put this in later for you to print out. Print some out before you begin the course to have on hand.

You are allowed to use a calculator during this course. Do not use programs that solve the problems for you. There is no point to using those when you are just learning. You won’t learn how to solve the problems if someone is doing it for you. The calculator is for calculations. You already are great at multiplying and dividing and don’t need to spend time working out answers to those types of things. You can even use a calculator on tests. Cheating is a form of lying, and like lies, it eventually catches up to you.

Things that say “presentation” are Shockwave Flash files. You will need it installed/updated/enabled in order to view them. If you are using an iPad or other tablet, make sure you are using an app or browser that will allow you to view them. A few times Java is also used.
