GENERAL COURSE OBJECTIVE: This course is continuation and extension of skills developed in Algebra I. A thorough investigation of topics related to functions, linear and non-linear, solving problems and study of the complex number system will be done. Individual and team skills will be enhanced as the students investigate models, collect and analyze data, and work with appropriate use of graphing calculators to enhance the learning of mathematics.
