Honors Algebra II
Algebra II picks up, of course, where Algebra I leaves off. And now we have the benefit of a years worth of geometry to provide further insight into some algebraic topics.
A quick and speedy review of some previously learned algebra leads to intensive work with polynomial functions and their distant cousins, the rational functions. The transcendental functions of exponentiation and the logarithm are covered in detail as well.
Expect some things that look familiar, but questions and applications that do not. Expect to be pushed to really THINK about what these functions do, how they do it, and how they behave. Expect to leave this course with a better understanding of why some functions make better real life models for a particular situation than others.
Looking forward to meeting each of you and successfully working our way through the course!
