Building on their work in Algebra I with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their study of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions in Algebra II. Students continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. Completion of this course will prepare students for the MCAP Algebra 2 Assessment.
