Algebra II builds upon the algebraic concepts taught in Algebra I, continuing on to functions, expressions, etc. and providing students with a more in-depth understanding of algebraic concepts. It is taught by award-winning Acellus Master Teacher, Patrick Mara. Acellus Algebra II is A-G Approved through the University of California.
Course Objectives & Student Learning Outcomes
In Acellus Algebra II, basic skills learned in Algebra I are reinforced and built upon. With the successful completion of this course, students will have a solid foundation in Algebra needed for continued success in more advanced math courses. Students will have reviewed expressions, equations, inequalities, and systems and extended their understanding of functions, equations, and graphs. They have attained a deeper understanding of linear, quadratic, exponential, and rational functions and how to transform them and use them to model situations. They also have a basic understanding of polynomial, radical, and logarithmic functions. Students have attained an understanding of complex numbers and know how to graph them and perform various mathematical operations with them. Students are experienced working with sequences and series. They are familiar with various conic sections, their graphs, and equations. Students know how to perform operations on matrices and use them to solve systems of equations and to perform geometric transformations. Students are more confident with calculations involving permutations and combinations. They know how to calculate the probability associated with multiple events and also conditional probability and are familiar with probability models. They also have worked with binomial, normal, and probability distribution functions. Students are familiar with the unit circle and graphs of the sine, cosine, and tangent functions and how to translate them. They also know basic trig identities and how to use them to solve problems.
