Course Overview:

This course helps the student to understand the meaning, significance and objectives of Algebra. The different types of functions, including exponential and logarithmic are described. The student acquires the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the principles and requirements of solving various problems using permutations and combinations. Student explores the relevance and applications of understanding word problems and interpreting them in terms of complex equations. Student understands how to interpret inverse variations and write the correct equations. This course demonstrates to the student how the same algebraic techniques can be applied to various situations. Students build upon what they had learned in Algebra I and solve more complex problems.

Note: This course is not designed for ELL (English Language Learners) students. ELL students may enroll in this course ONLY if they have adequate mentor support at their home school and are able to fulfill all course requirements.
