Algebra 2

Academic Year Mathematics

In Algebra 2, students continue their study of algebraic functions and applications. We begin by reviewing key concepts from Algebra 1, then expand upon them to solve even more challenging problems. Students explore the rich field of polynomials and build foundations for calculus through the study of sequences and series. They are exposed to a variety of important algebraic forms and functions, and are equipped with the tools necessary for understanding new forms and functions they'll encounter in the future. We also lay the groundwork for navigating optimization problems with a study of inequalities. Many challenging problems in this course are drawn from contests such as AMC 10, AMC 12, AIME, and the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament.

Homework and exams

Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours on homework every week. Homework will be assigned and completed through the class website, where students receive immediate feedback on their work. Students will take three in-class exams throughout the course.

Textbook

The textbook for the course is Intermediate Algebra by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and lifetime digital access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy.
