Course Description:

In this Honors level Algebra 2 with Trigonometry, students will extend the concepts of algebra and geometry, with a focus on critical thinking and the interconnectedness of mathematics.  This is a fast-paced and honors-level course which delves deep into advanced algebraic concepts, requiring students to have gained a strong background knowledge in a previous Algebra 1 course.  Algebra 2 with Trigonometry provides a comprehensive exploration of: 

  • Functions, 
  • Polynomials, 
  • Rational exponents and radicals, 
  • Logarithms, 
  • Rational expressions and equations, 
  • Sequences and series, 
  • Statistics, 
  • Trigonometry.

Students will expand their understanding of mathematical concepts and how they are connected as well as improve logical thinking and problem solving skills.  Additionally, students will focus on the deeper meaning of mathematical concepts such as the reasons why certain “rules” or theorems exist and how functions behave.  

Algebra 2 strengthens students’ algebraic abilities and problem solving skills, lending itself to the study of trigonometry which is a true coupling of advanced algebraic concepts and geometric properties.  In general, Algebra 2 with Trigonometry is a rigorous mathematics course in which students develop skills such as making connections between various concepts, problem solving using multiple methods and representations, critical thinking, efficiency, and developing a coherent, logical argument.

This course is an intensive 60 hours of instruction and demands the full dedication and commitment of the student. Substantial work must be completed outside of class time in order to master the necessary topics.  Students will receive a grade, however, no credits will be assigned.  For students who do not attend St. John’s, a letter will be mailed to their school showing the attendance record and final exam grade

Successful completion of this course will prepare students for the study of calculus.
