Algebra 2

Academic Year Mathematics

Students continue their study of algebraic functions and applications in our Algebra 2 course. We start with a review of the key concepts of Algebra 1, expanding upon them to solve more difficult problems. We explore the rich field of polynomials, and lay foundations for calculus with a study of sequences and series. Students learn about a variety of common algebraic forms and important functions, and about tools for understanding new forms and functions they'll encounter in the future. We also lay the groundwork for understanding optimization problems with a study of inequalities. Many of the challenging problems of Algebra 2 come from contests such as AMC 10/12, AIME, and the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament.

Students completing Algebra 2 are ready for our Precalculus course.

Textbook: Intermediate Algebra by Art of Problem Solving.

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

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Algebra 2 course.
"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
