GSE Accelerated Geometry B / GSE Algebra II

GSE Accelerated Geometry B/GSE Algebra II is the second in a sequence of mathematics courses designed to ensure that students are prepared to take higher‐level mathematics courses during their high school career, including Advanced Placement Calculus AB, Advanced Placement Calculus BC, and Advanced Placement Statistics. It is in GSE Accelerated Geometry B / GSE Algebra II that students pull together and apply the accumulation of learning that they have from their previous course, with content grouped into nine critical areas, organized into units. Quadratic expressions, equations, and functions are developed; comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships from GSE Accelerated Algebra I / GSE Geometry A. Circles return with their quadratic algebraic representations on the coordinate plane. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability. Students expand their repertoire of functions to include quadratic (with complex solutions), polynomial, rational, and radical functions. And, finally, students bring together all of their experience with functions to create models and solve contextual problems.
