Course Description: This course is designed to teach students to be successful mathematical problem solvers. It is a continuation of algebraic and geometric concepts developed in Algebra I and Geometry. Topics covered will be the properties and attributes of functions (linear, quadratic, square root, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and cubic functions) and the multiple representations of all functions mentioned above. Course Objective: Students will interpret attributes of functions and their inverses. Students will solve systems of equations and inequalities. They will learn properties and apply matrices to systems of equations. Students will evaluate the effectiveness of various methods used to solve quadratic and square root equations and inequalities. Students will apply exponential and logarithmic equations to real life application problems. Students will explore attributes and transformations of cubic, cube root, and rational equations. Grading Policy: 60% Major Assignments (Exams) 40% Minor Assignments (Daily Classwork, Homework & Quizzes) **see district grading policy for specifications** Required Materials: Algebra II Notebook Pencils/Pens Graph Paper Expectations: Be on time and be prepared. Bring all materials to class. Be prepared and ready to work as soon as the bell rings. Sit quietly and be attentive while the teacher is addressing the class. Stay in your seat during class time and raise your hand to be recognized. Turn in assignments on time (no late work will be accepted). Ask for any missed work due to an excused absence. If absent during test day, you will be able to take the test before or after school only. Follow all school rules at all times. Stay on task until the bell rings. The teacher dismisses the class, not the bell. Take notes every day and keep a neat and well organized binder. There will be no food or drinks allowed in class.

Cheating and plagiarism are serious crime committed in the classroom and will not be tolerated. Violators will receive a grade of zero on that assignment, and an office referral.
