Students in Algebra II Honors are expected to have very strong Algebra I skills, and, ideally, enjoy math. Excellent factoring skills are a must. Algebra II Honors is designed for advanced mathematics students to prepare them for STEM careers. Students are asked to think critically all the time by explaining, justifying, verifying, interpreting, drawing, and labeling mathematical relationships. Algebra II includes study in matrices, trigonometry, functions, and square roots of both real and imaginary numbers. Graphing various forms of equations and inequalities is an integral part of this course.
Prerequisite: Successful completion (A- or above) of Algebra I Honors or permission of the instructor.
