Course Description: The content and processes for this course follow state standards as described by the Washington State K-12 Mathematics Standards for Algebra 2.  Students will build on previous learning about linear and quadratic functions. Additionally, students learn to solve problems modeled by exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of equations and inequalities, inverse variations, and combinations and permutations. Students extend their understanding of the number systems to include complex numbers. They formalize their study of probability, and extend their use of statistics to graph bivariate data, and explore arithmetic and geometric series. Students develop formal reasoning skills that include making and proving conjectures, developing valid mathematical arguments, and refuting false statements using correct mathematical language, terms, and symbols in all situations. These algebraic skills are applied in subsequent high school mathematics and statistics courses.

 (Note: Algebra 2 of the State Standards should not be confused with Algebra I-II offered in this district.  Algebra III-IV curriculum offered in the Kent School District is the same level of instruction as the above-referenced state standard for Algebra 2.)
