Algebra 2 is the capstone course for the three units of credit and regents exams required for an Advanced Regents diploma. This course is a continuation and extension of Algebra 1 and Geometry. Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions and 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. The 8 Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. All students will take the Algebra 2 regents exam in June. Successful passing of the New York State Algebra 2 regents exam in June satisfies, in part, the requirement of passing 3 Math regents exams for an Advanced Regents diploma.
