Algebra 2 | Live & Self-Paced | 2023-24

Remote Learning

In this online live Algebra 2 class or Self-Paced Algebra 2 class, middle school and high school homeschoolers have multiple live meeting opportunities available each week:​

  • Live Class: Students will meet live with their instructor and classmates for 75 minutes once a week. These live interactive problem-solving sessions will include examples offered by the instructor, small-group collaboration, and plenty of time to ask questions.

  • Self-Paced Class: Students cover the same material as the live class, but all instruction will be delivered by teacher-produced videos.

  • Live and Self-Paced--Two Optional Live Study Halls: In addition to the live 75-minute class, the instructor will offer two weekly live study halls for both live and self-paced students. These can be utilized in two ways:

    • Individual questions. Students can drop in to a Zoom study hall at any time to ask questions.

    • Homework time. Students can log in to a Zoom study hall--keeping microphones muted and videos on or off--to work on their math homework. They can then unmute to ask for immediate help when questions arise.​

Class Details

Foundational Elements

A typical week will open on Monday morning and close the following Sunday. This course is structured with multiple short lessons each week that include teacher-recorded video instruction, guided notes, and practice problems. Following this class pacing encourages daily, incremental learning and practice that helps students plan, manage their time, and come prepared to participate in the live weekly class. 

Each week will begin with an instructional note about concepts to come and a list of assignments.

  • Homework and quizzes will be assigned weekly, with some work completed directly on the class website and some uploaded.

  • Students will be offered more than one attempt on quizzes and tests, encouraging work toward mastery.

  • Some weekly assignments will offer immediate online feedback so that students can proceed at a pace that is optimal for them.

  • The class will encourage critical thinking and will apply math concepts to the real world.

  • Students should expect to spend 5-7 hours per week on classwork (which includes the recorded instruction and the live Zoom class).

An Array of Resources

The class will use the 2018 edition of McGraw-Hill's Glencoe Algebra 2. (See the complete list of resources HERE.) This textbook offers clear, uncluttered instruction as well as real-world examples and explanations.

  • Required digital resources offer students an interactive ebook of the course text, supplementary videos, and links to on-the-spot explanations.

  • Free interactive applications such as GeoGebra will help students visualize concepts.

  • A free graphing calculator app will be used to teach students the various functions and techniques needed to efficiently solve equations on their calculators.

  • Optional: students who wish to utilize a hard-copy of the textbook can purchase one on their own or borrow one through the Blue Tent OnLoan program.

Collaborate. Learn. Enjoy Math!

Through targeted, teacher-produced recordings, live instruction, interactive resources, and extensive instructor accessibility in study halls throughout each week, this course is designed to help students successfully learn and enjoy Algebra!
