Algebra II/Trigonometry – Honors

This course builds on the fundamental concepts of the variables, equations, and graphs studied in Algebra I, namely the properties and applications of numbers, graphs, tables, expressions, equations, and inequalities (as applied to linear, quadratic, trigonometric, polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and exponential functions). In addition, students are given a thorough foundation in the concepts and applications of triangular and circular trigonometry. Applications of mathematics to real-world problems, effective reasoning skills, and problem-solving strategies are emphasized. Students need to be able to make connections between the mathematical concepts studied and other subject areas, to use mathematical language when modeling situations, to effectively and efficiently use a graphing calculator and other applicable technology, and to analyze and avoid common errors. Students are required to meet expectations in understanding and mastering concepts, and developing independent application. (Full year, 1 credit)
