#### Algebra 2 Course Overview

Ready for the next step? Master Algebra 2 concepts, hone your calculator skills, and prepare for real-world application as we dig in and develop each topic. Topics in this Algebra 2 class include linear equations, problem solving, inequalities, polynomials, rational functions, exponents, logarithms, and quadratic equations.

This isn’t about test prep… **it’s about building skills and deepening connections**. Sure you can use these skills on the SAT, but an emphasis on problem solving and application just make this course more fun!

#### The Math XL Online Resource

This course will utilize the online resource MathXL. MathXL is a powerful online homework, tutorial, and assessment system. It includes: lecture slides, step-by-step examples for any problem, accessibility tools, chapter reviews, and individualized study plans based on performance.

#### Course Reviews:

My husband and I watched class last week with him and I have to say you are the most entertaining teacher we have ever experienced at Landry. I know the kids are going to have a great time and learn a lot. You find the perfect line for having a good time and finding them where they are and keeping them in check. We were impressed.

Mrs. B is an amazing teacher. I came into Algebra 2 dreading it, because I had struggled through algebra 1 and geometry. While algebra 2 is still quite challenging, I feel like I am able to understand the material well because Mrs. B teaches it so well. She has many tips and tricks that make the material make more sense, and overall the system she uses to teach works amazing! Overall, I’ve done very well in Algebra 2, and I definitely accredit that to Mrs. B’s awesome teaching!

“She always does her best to explain something we have a question about, and she never gives up until she has an explanation that we can understand. When she tells stories about how she goes through the same math issues that we do, I don’t feel alone with that issue, and it gives me confidence to get through it. She’s also really funny, which calms nerves and makes class enjoyable!”
