COURSE NAME: ALGEBRA II
RESOURCE BOOK: Title: "Structure and Method Book 2"; Authors: Brown, Dolciani, Sorgenfrey, Kane Publisher: Houghton Mifflin; Copyright: 1999
OBJECTIVES: The Honors Algebra II course is the second level in the study of algebra. The concepts learned in Algebra I are reviewed and expanded into the study of products and factors of polynomials, operations on rational expressions, the complex number system, and quadratic equations and inequalities. Higher order polynomial equations and selected analytical geometric concepts are introduced as the students expand their algebraic skills and knowledge to prepare for higherlevel mathematics.
