Algebra 2

Grades 9-12+1High school students may be awarded 1 Math credit upon completion of this course.
DescriptionMaterials

Algebra 2 reviews and builds upon Algebra 1 to prepare students for Pre-Calculus. Topics include systems of linear equations, inequalities, polynomials, rational equations, working with radicals, quadratic functions, and conic sections.  

This course includes two 50-minute meetings per week of live instruction and uses a dynamic software product, giving students the benefit of the best instructional technology while also having access to a real instructor. As students work on homework assignments, they find out immediately if their answer is correct. As needed, they can access immediate help in various forms including being guided through a problem, viewing the steps of a similar problem, or watching a short video clip reviewing the relevant concept. They can also contact the instructor with comments or questions at any time. Students complete quizzes and tests online and submit their written work to the instructor. Assignments, due dates, and grades are easily available for students and parents to view.

Live class sessions include interactive problem solving to ensure understanding and mastery.  Students collaborate in small groups using writing tablets to work through problems under the guidance of the instructor.

An additional $35 non-refundable deposit is required for the Math software program (per year, not per semester).

High school students may be awarded 1 Math credit upon completion of this course.

  • "I love the fact that the Math XL homework gives my daughter immediate feedback. This keeps her focused and makes her less discouraged with the alternative to try again, which nips in the bud her tendency to distraction and perfectionism. The required written work as part of the grade has also been great, because I could never get her to write down all the steps before. It was either too "boring" or "a waste of time" but then she would make many small errors and be discouraged.  This year she finally realized that she is both good at math and that she enjoys it!"

  • "I just wanted to thank you for how you teach math. Since I've started taking classes from you, I've understood math concepts where I haven't understood them very well in the past. Thank you for your teaching and your patience!"
