Algebra 2

Academic Year Mathematics

In Algebra 2, students continue their study of algebraic functions and applications. We begin by reviewing key concepts from Algebra 1, then expand upon them to solve even more challenging problems. Students explore the rich field of polynomials and build foundations for calculus through the study of sequences and series. They are exposed to a variety of important algebraic forms and functions, and are equipped with the tools necessary for understanding new forms and functions they'll encounter in the future. We also lay the groundwork for navigating optimization problems with a study of inequalities. Many challenging problems in this course are drawn from contests such as AMC 10, AMC 12, AIME, and the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament.

Homework and exams

Students should expect to spend 1-3 hours on homework every week. Homework will be assigned and completed through the class website, where students receive immediate feedback on their work. Students will take three in-class exams throughout the course.

Textbook

The textbook for the course is Intermediate Algebra by Art of Problem Solving.

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

AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!
