    Suggested materials:  

      Scientific calculator (includes sin, cos, and tan, but does NOT graph), and pencils.

    If you would prefer to use paper instead of the chromebook, you will also need a 3-ring binder, notebook and graph paper and pens.  


    Courses Currently Taught:

    Honors Algebra 2: In this course, students will primarily focus on the study of functions: linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, radical and trigonometric. The use of these functions to model real world situations is a major theme. The students will utilize the graphing calculator when needed throughout the course. Students are expected to achieve at a higher level, seek additional help when needed, and spend more time on exploration and enrichment topics, including sequences, series and conic sections.
