Algebra 2 Honors EVP
Algebra 2 Honors EVP (MATH350e)
1.0 (yearlong course)
A grade of an 85% or higher in the subject area course taken the previous year.
Algebra 2 Honors EVP
This course begins with a review of key Algebra 1 topics such as solving equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations and solving linear systems of equations. The course then transitions into covering matrices, quadratics, conic sections, polynomials, radical equations, exponential and logarithmic equations, sequences & series, and rational equations. This course also includes a unit on trigonometry and probability.
Students will be guided in their learning through written material, videos, and web-based activities and assessments.
The honors track includes a deeper focus on critical thinking and analytical skills by providing students with more challenging problems and assignments. These elements will prepare students to be successful in future upper-level and AP® courses.
The recommended sequence for students wishing to pursue advanced math classes: MATH150, MATH250, MATH350, MATH450, followed by their choice of MATH500, MATH510, or MATH520.
Students need access to a scanner or digital camera (phone is fine) in order to submit work for the teacher to review. Students will also need a TI-84 graphing calculator for this course.

FROM THE TEACHER
There is a mathematical description for everything that happens around us, from the patterns of the tide to why squirrels run in front of cars. In this course, we will be exploring how God uses math to describe His moral character to us. Some of the concepts that we will be exploring include transformations, exponentials and logarithms, introductory statiatics, and introductory calculus. We will also be working on building mathematical communication skills that will help you when connecting with others at a STEM based level.
If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
I feel that the EVP format of this course boosted my learning experience in a way that the VRP did not. Live interaction with a teacher and classmates has allowed me to make and learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others in real time.
I loved having breakout rooms and Kahoot activities in class this year. They were really helpful, kept me engaged throughout, and helped me absorb the material more quickly.
The course was very organized and easy to navigate.
