The course is a continuation of work begun in Algebra l. It emphasizes facility with algebraic expressions and forms, especially linear and quadratic forms, powers and roots, and functions based on these concepts. Students study exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, trigonometric, and other special functions both for their abstract properties and as tools for modeling real-world situations. Geometric ideas are utilized throughout, and applications of statistical analysis are examined. Students will receive a graphing calculator for their use throughout the course, if needed. They are responsible for the calculator just as for their text.
