**Algebra II- Upper Division**

**Tuesday - Thursday**

The purpose of Algebra 2 is to extend students’ understanding of functions and the real numbers, and to increase the tools students have for modeling the real world. They extend their notion of number to include complex numbers and see how the introduction of this set of numbers yields the solutions of polynomial equations and the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra.

**General Information**

**Description**

This course focuses on the four critical areas of the Common Core model pathway for Algebra II: functions, polynomials, periodic phenomena, and collecting and analyzing data. The course begins with a review of linear and quadratic functions, to solidify a foundation for learning these new functions. Students will make connections between verbal, numeric, algebraic, and graphical representations of functions and apply this knowledge as they create equations and inequalities that can be used to model and solve mathematical and real-world problems. As students refine and expand their algebraic skills, they will draw analogies between the operations and field properties of real numbers and those of complex numbers and algebraic expressions. The Common Core practice standards are embedded throughout the course, as students solve novel problems, reason abstractly, and think critically.

**Expectations and Goals**

Throughout the course, you will meet the following goals:

Communicate effectively using graphic, numeric, symbolic, and verbal representations

Compare and connect the structure of the polynomial system and the system of integers

Use the coordinate plane to extend trigonometry to model periodic phenomena

Synthesize and generalize what you have learned about a variety of function families

Relate visual data displays and summary statistics to different types of data, including probability distributions

Throughout the course, you are expected to spend approximately 5–7 hours per week on the following activities:• Interactive lessons that include a mixture of instructional videos and tasks • Assignments in which you apply and extend learning in each lesson • Assessments, including quizzes, tests, and cumulative exams

**Required Course Materials**

It is your responsibility to come to class prepared daily with the following materials:

**Scientific or graphing calculator (preferred graphing calculator)**

Three Ring Binder

Lined and graph paper

Four color pen, pencils, and ruler

Three Ring Binder

Lined and graph paper

Four color pen, pencils, and ruler

**Communication**

I will communicate with you regularly through classroom discussions, email, and Weebly. You will also communicate with classmates, either via online tools or face to face, as you collaborate on projects, ask and answer questions in your peer group, and develop your speaking and listening skills.

**Scope and Sequence**

The units of study are summarized below:

Unit R: Review of Basic Concepts

Unit 1: Equations and Inequalities

Unit 2: Graphs and Functions

Unit 3: Polynomial and Rational Functions

Unit 4: Inverse, Exponential, and Logarithmic Functions

Unit 5: Systems and Matrices

**Grading Policy:**

**Calculator checks:**

**5 points (points alternate between HCPS and 21st Century Skills).**

**YOU MAY ONLY RECEIVE THESE POINTS IF YOU ARE IN CLASS ON TIME.**

**NO MAKE-UP! It is valuable to attend school and arrive to class on time.**

**Homework/Classwork:**

**10 points (5 pts HCPS and 5 pts 21st Century Skills)**

**Quizzes:**

**10-20 points per quiz (all pts Assessment)**

**Assessments:**

**Typically 80 points (60 pts Assessment and 20 pts 21st Century Skills points per assessment)**

**Binder checks:**

**Done on day of assessment (20pts – 21st Century Skills)**

**Homework will include, but it is not limited to worksheets, projects, and virtual assignments. Class work consists of notes, group work, and positive participation.**

To receive credit for this course, you must obtain a grade of 70% or higher. All grades will be updated on Power School by Sunday 9pm of each week.

Weighting: 50% Assessment, 25% Homework/Classwork, 25% 21st Century Skills

90-100% A

80-89.9% B

70-79.9% C

60-69.9% I (remediation is possible by teacher discretion-student does not receive credit and must retake the credit)

Below 60% F (student does not receive credit and must retake the credit)

**Make-up work**

**: If you have an**

**excused**

**absence from class, you have the same number of days to turn in your assignment as the number of days you were out. Late work will be accepted up to the assessment for that section. Any work turned in one day late will result in a loss of 50% of 21st Century Skills and after that all 21st Century Skills points will be lost (however, you can still earn ALL the content points up until the day of the test).**

**Students who have excused absences have the amount of days absent to turn in the work that they missed. If students miss a day of school, it is the student’s responsibility to check Weebly and/or email me to make up missing work.**
