    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Welcome to Algebra II class. In this course, we will explore and interpret real-world problems as well as patterns and their representations (expressions, equations, graphs).The content of this course are important for students’ success on both the ACT and college mathematics entrance exams. We will use technology, such as TI-84 and  geogebra, which will help you analyze data and understand theorems easily. Your success in Algebra II depends on your willingness to be challenged to complete your work, turn it in on time, and ask questions.I ALWAYS EXPECT YOUR BEST EFFORT!
