This course focuses on mathematical models that employ variables and geometric relationships. Students study the behavior of graphs that result from such models, and the symbolic procedures needed to communicate about linear, quadratic, and exponential relationships between variables. Students use graphs to communicate about how quantities change, preparing for advanced mathematics courses and critical thinking in a technological world. In this second course in algebra, students use graphs as tools for posing, answering and communicating questions, and expand their ability to connect symbolic manipulations with graphical, numerical, and verbal representations. Students in this course use multiple representations to construct equations and communicate meanings about change and variation. Students learn techniques of symbolic reasoning involving factors, exponents, radicals, and quadratic expressions, and study the mathematical structure that underlies equation solving. Technology is used regularly by students and teachers to implement experimentation, build connections, confirm written solutions, and assist in interpreting results. By drawing from mathematical topics across the NJ Core Curriculum Standards, students see algebra as a set of powerful techniques and as a way to solve problems in a variety of contexts.

This modified algebra course will cover major topics detailed in Algebra II CP.  However, the topics will be covered at a slower pace with the major emphasis on student understanding.  More practice, technology, hands-on activities, small group interactions, diagrams, calculators and graphing applications will be employed to help students understand the mathematical concepts.
