Algebra 2


Updated for 24-25!

In this course, students will build on previous mathematical knowledge from Algebra I to investigate and use functions to solve problems. Students will analyze and graph functions that include linear functions, quadratic functions, exponential, and rational functions through investigations, projects, videos, and written material. Additional topics include sequences and series, matrices, conics, and statistics. Students will implement various mathematical processes and learn to justify their solutions. The students will also practice communicating their learning by using proper notation and making connections to previous learning. At the end of the course, the students will have developed their problem-solving abilities as well as the ability to view a real-world problem in context.

Special Instructions:

The recommended sequence for students taking non-Honors courses: Algebra 1 – Geometry – Algebra 2 – Other 300+ math

TI-84+ or TI-84+ CE (preferred) Graphing calculators are not optional. Graphing Calculators are a required tool in this course. In each unit, students are given instruction and practice on the capabilities of their graphing calculator as they relate to calculus by both the instructor and the text.


Algebra II is a great course to solidify your Algebra skills and get you ready for what comes next. For some of you, this might be your last high school course. For others, it is a stepping stone to those more advanced courses such as PreCalculus and Calculus. Either way, you will find this course a mix of review and new as you explore a variety of topics as you work on improving your math skills.

Do you learn by doing? You will have lots of exploratory activities for you to do. These help you understand the why behind what you are learning. Do you learn by watching videos? You will have videos to guide you through the examples. Videos are part of the lesson but are also there for your reference after you do practice problems. Do you learn better when you know how math applies to real life? You will have real-world type problems and projects about how what we are learning is applied to our lives. For example, did you know police use math and skid marks to tell how fast a car was going at accident scenes? Have you ever thought about how God is part of mathematics? You will be learning about how God is present in mathematics throughout history.

But best of all, you are not in this learning journey alone. You may say you are not good at math. I like to say that you are not good at math YET. As your teacher, I am here to help you if you have questions and guide you when you get stuck. The course was designed for students who might struggle with the concepts with extra hints and things to avoid mixed in with the content. I look forward to helping you be a better mathematician by the end of Algebra II.

Student Feedback

This course was really well laid out and I really enjoyed it! Thank you NSA!

This was a a very enjoyable class, and I am very glad I took it! Needless to say, I learned more math!

I enjoyed everything about this course! I didn’t feel bored about this course.
