This course is the second of two that comprise Honors Algebra 1. In this course, the student will explore additional concepts in higher-level mathematics. The student will review the properties of exponents before learning how to add, subtract, multiply, divide, and factor polynomials. Next the student will learn how to write, solve, and graph quadratic and radical functions. Other topics in the course include simplifying scientific notation, simplifying radicals, trigonometric equations, and rational expressions. The end of the course concludes with a data analysis and probability unit, where the student will organize data using matrices, interpret histograms, calculate and interpret the measures of central tendency, find probability, and find permutations and combinations. Throughout the course, the student will solve real-world problems and model real-world scenarios. Throughout the course, the student will be introduced to multiple problem-solving strategies and will be exposed to various technologies that can be utilized when solving algebra problems.
Algebra 1 A is a prerequisite for this course.
