Algebra 2 is an advanced course that allows students to learn mathematical content through hands-on activities, applications, discussion-based assessments, and the latest technology. Interactive examples help guide students’ journey through Algebra 2 topics. For example, mathematical concepts are applied to everyday occurrences such as earthquakes, stadium seating, and purchasing movie tickets. Additionally, students investigate the effects of an equation on its graph through technology.
