This second year of Algebra is largely about the study of functions. We work with many kinds of functions, including linear, quadratic, higher polynomial, exponential, rational, radical, logarithmic, and piece-wise functions. With each of these, we learn to use transformation to turn parent functions from any family into any function in that family. We also work with their equations and graphs.

Honors Algebra 2 goes farther than that. We also have an introduction to matrices, a unit on probability and statistics, and a unit on conic sections.

By the end of the course, students will be able to: solve more complicated problems; work more fluently with numbers, expressions, and operations; solve and graph quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions and equations; work with probabilities, data, and distributions; use matrices to help solve systems of equations; use sound mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills to solve problems; and communicate their mathematical thoughts to their peers and teacher.
