GSE Honors Algebra II

GSE Honor’s Algebra II is designed to prepare students for fourth course options relevant to their career pursuits. It is in Algebra II that students pull together and apply the accumulation of learning that they have from their previous courses, with content grouped into six critical areas, organized into units. They apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data. 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. The Honor’s course incorporates much more rigor and uses more discovery in the lessons. More projects and tasks are incorporated and the mathematics is applied in a variety of problems and situations. The course is the third 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.
