# Algebra II Honors

A primary goal of Algebra 2 is for students to conceptualize, analyze, and identify relationships among functions. The course reviews and expands concepts learned in Algebra I such as graphing, solving both linear and quadratic equations. Radicals, exponential, and rational equations will be expanded upon in more detail than in Algebra I. New topics such as conic sections and logarithms will be taught. This class is a high school honors credited course and average students should expect to spend about 8 - 9 hours a week outside of the class to complete all assignments and study for their tests. Students are not allowed to use notes or any other help, other than their own calculator, on their quizzes and tests. Again, this estimate

of 8 - 9 hours of outside classroom work is based on an average. If a student does not stay focused, or if a student is missing any pre-requisite knowledge necessary for this course, they may spend more time than 9 hours a week. Conversely, if a student is gifted mathematically, they may spend less than 8 hours a week of outside classroom time on assignments and studying.

Please note: A parent or caregiver MUST proctor all tests taken at home. All tests must be signed by the parent or caregiver, to signify this supervision occurred. Again, The student must only have access to their

calculator and NO technological device capable of internet connection can be accessible.

Information regarding where to send this test will be coming shortly. Thank you for your patience.

*Math Lab Tutoring will be available Thursdays from 9:30am -12:30 pm in the RCF Math Lab.* All CEDAR policies apply. RSVP by email 24 hours in advance.

Cost: $15.00 per student per Thursday. One-on-one tutoring is also available by request through the teacher.
