11th Grade Curriculum

Math – Algebra 2

Algebra 2 –  is made up of five instructional components:

  • Introduction of the New Increment
  • Examples with Complete Solutions
  • Practice of the Increment
  • Daily Problem Set
  • and Cumulative Tests.

Lesson reference numbers are included with the Daily Problem Sets, identifying lessons students can review if they have difficulty in solving the problems. Algebra 2 not only treats topics that are traditionally covered in second-year algebra, but also covers a considerable amount of geometry. Time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines. Students completing Algebra 2 will have studied the equivalent of one semester of informal geometry. Applications to subjects such as physics and chemistry, as well as real-world problems, are also covered. The Test Masters include complete solutions for all tests, and solutions for all practice problems are included in the Solutions Manual.

Algebra 2 includes such topics as:

  • graphical solution of simultaneous equations
  • basic trigonometric functions
  • scientific notation
  • radicals
  • conic sections
  • roots of quadratic equations, including complex roots
  • properties of real numbers
  • geometric proofs
  • factoring
  • inequalities and systems of inequalities
  • logarithms and antilogarithms
  • exponential equations
  • algebra of polynomials
  • vectors
  • algebraic word problems
  • gas law
  • set theory
