In this second part of the two-year Integrated Algebra 2/Geometry course, emphasis is placed on mathematical justification of algebraic and geometric properties. Many of the topics introduced in the previous year are revisited and expanded, with a focus on proving relationships and general principles deductively. Step-by-step, coordinate, paragraph, and indirect proofs are used. Algebra is employed throughout the course to solve geometric problems, work with series, and investigate exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions.
Assessments will include group and individual projects, daily homework assignments, quizzes, and tests. Resources used throughout the course include textbooks, graphing calculators, Geometer's Sketchpad, Moodle, Wiki, and addtional websites.
The accelerated version will cover the same material, as well as explore additional advanced topics. The pace of the accelerated course will also move considerably faster, as the class meets four times per week rather than five.
