Algebra I & II
Algebra I: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m
Algebra II: 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Duration: 6 weeks
Algebra I is a one-credit course that is designed to teach the topics in a typical first-year algebra course. Topics include solving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, as well as equations involving rational and radical expressions. Function notation is introduced and various classifications of functions are explored. Topics from coordinate geometry include graphing linear and quadratic functions; graphing inequalities; and applications of the Pythagorean Theorem, the distance formula, and special right triangles. Students will learn how to solve systems of linear equations and inequalities, as well as 3-variable and nonlinear systems. Exponential functions are also explored.
Algebra II is a one-credit course that is an extension of Algebra I. Topics are added in the area of functions that expand the algebra to include conic sections and trigonometry, thus relating algebra to geometric concepts. Algebra II is generally preliminary to a course in analysis, analytical geometry, and ideas of limits and calculus. This course also ties together many of the ideas from arithmetic and geometry. Students who have successfully completed this course will be able to identify and perform diverse mathematical concepts in the field of algebra. Students must have successfully completed Algebra I, with Geometry strongly recommended, in order to take this class.
