In Algebra II Part 1, students will analyze situations verbally, numerically, graphically, and symbolically. Students will become proficient at solving equations and inequalities. They will extend their knowledge of algebraic expressions, absolute value, functions, and graphs. Students will also learn to write and graph linear equations and inequalities and study problems that solve systems of equations, inequalities, quadratic expressions, and complex numbers.
It is recommended that students successfully complete Algebra I or equivalent course work before enrolling in this course.
