Grade 10 Algebra II Course Outline (1.0 Credit)

This course begins with a review of Algebra I topics and introduces the following new topics: matrices, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, conic sections, higher degree polynomial functions, sequences and series, and trigonometry. This course is required for students who are planning to attend most post-secondary institutions.

Algebra II is a continuation of the algebraic processes begun in Algebra I. This course includes solving equations, inequalities, matrices, graphing, functions, powers, roots, logarithms, complex numbers, polynomials, quadratic relations, sequences, series, probability and statistics. Appropriate technology is integrated into the curriculum.

Students will work with both scientific and graphing calculators throughout this Algebra 2 course. It is strongly recommended that you have at least a scientific calculator to use when completing your work. If you don’t have access to a scientific and/or graphing calculator, many are available for free online.

The Algebra II course will cover a range of algebraic topics. The over-arching topics include Operations on Numbers and Expressions, Equations and Inequalities, Polynomial and Rational Functions, Exponential Functions and Function Operations and Inverses.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

  • Onstrate an understanding of operations with numbers
  • Manipulate algebraic expressions involving real and complex numbers
  • Solve linear and nonlinear equations and inequalities
  • Solve systems of linear equations and inequalities.
  • Solve, translate and model linear equations
  • Solve, translate and model quadratic equations
  • Solve, translate and model exponential equations
  • Solve, translate and model rational equations
  • Solve, translate and model radical equations
  • Solve, translate and model higher-order polynomial equations and inequalities
  • Solve problems presented in context
  • Represent, characterize and solve problems that involve quadratic functions
  • Represent, characterize and solve problems that involve higher-order polynomial
  • Represent, characterize and solve problems that involve simple rational functions
  • Represent, characterize and solve problems involving exponential functions and logarithmic functions.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of combinations and inverses of functions.
