The content of this course is organized around families of functions, including linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, radical, and rational functions. Students will also learn to model real-world situations using functions. In addition to its Algebra content, Honors Algebra 2 includes topics on probability, data analysis, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Honors Algebra 2 provides instruction and practice on standardized test questions in a variety of formats including multiple-choice, short response, and extended response. Technology support for both learning Algebra 2 and for preparing for standardized tests is available at www.classzone.com.The Advanced/Honors Mathematics courses are intended to be more challenging than Academic courses and are designed to provide multiple opportunities for students to take an increased responsibility for their own learning and achievement. These courses are designed for students who have demonstrated an advanced level of achievement in mathematics. The curriculum is distinguished by a difference in rigor and the quality of work, not merely the quantity.Criteria for Section -1. A ‘B' (80%) or better in Honors Geometry.2. A 95% or better in Academic Geometry, OR a teacher's recommendation from Academic Geometry.
