SUMMER ALGEBRA II
Algebra II forms the foundation for key concepts in advanced math courses. This course covers a full year of Algebra II in eight weeks by addressing algebraic functions and equations of lines and higher order polynomials; exponents and logarithms; rational expressions; absolute value; piecewise; and step. The course ends with an introduction to trigonometry beyond the right triangle. Students explore concepts directly through their own investigations, make and test conjectures about what they observe, and apply these conjectures to solve problems and create new conjectures. Assessments include tests and quizzes, discussion prompts, and group and individual projects. By the end of the course, students will have gained proficiency in critical thinking, pattern recognition, graphing, transformations, and communication.
Summer courses are for-credit opportunities for ambitious students to get a jump on the next academic year. Students participating in these courses should plan to devote 25-30 hours per week for eight weeks to their course. Students will receive grades and comments in these classes, which are the equivalent of year-long, high-school level courses. Because of the pacing and intensity of for-credit summer courses, there is little flexibility; students must be available and have internet access for all eight weeks of the course.
