Welcome to Algebra II! In this course, we will explore and interpret real-world problems as well as patterns and their representations (expressions, equations, graphs). We will also explain mathematical relationships verbally and symbolically. We will use technology, such as graphing calculators, that will help you analyze data and recognize patterns more easily. Throughout Algebra II, we will build a mathematical foundation that will make connections among mathematical concepts, across disciplines, and in everyday experiences. The course will help prepare you both for your future mathematics courses and for your future careers. If you bring to class your curiosity and willingness to work hard, then I promise this mathematical journey will reward all you put into it!
