Foundational Elements

This Algebra 2 with Honors Option 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 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 classes will encourage critical thinking and will apply math concepts to the real world.

Coursework is teacher-graded, and students receive individual weekly feedback and assistance on submitted work.

Core and Supplemental Resources

Your digital resources fee includes:

  • An ebook of McGraw-Hill's Glencoe Algebra 2 (2018)

    • The ebook offers built-in study tips, supplementary videos, links to on-the spot explanations, concept checks, applications to real life, and hands-on activities to solidify concepts.

    • Cengage's WebAssign, which offers students instant access to homework results.

Free interactive apps such as GeoGebra will help students visualize concepts, and a graphing calculator app will be used to teach students the various functions and techniques needed to efficiently solve equations on their calculators.

Is the Honors Option right for you?

Algebra 2 is an important class for future success in Precalculus and Calculus. Students planning to pursue admission to competitive colleges or pursue a STEM track will want a solid Algebra 2 underpinning. Those who choose the honors option will be presented with instruction and practice that will expand on the weekly topics covered and encourage critical thinking. The Honors Option may require an additional 1-2 hours per week of classwork; however, some students find they can master the material much more efficiently than that.

Through targeted, teacher-produced recordings, live instruction and study halls, and a commitment to offer detailed feedback and support, students will be well prepared to successfully apply Algebra 2 concepts in their future math and science classes.
