Students may enroll in Accelerated Math 2 upon successful completion of Accelerated Math 1 OR on-level Math 1 with the summer bridge course. Even for students who were successful in Math 1 and the bridge course sometimes have an "adjustment period" at the beginning of Accelerated Math 2 to acclimate themselves to the rigor of the new class. Students transferring from other states should be placed in Accelerated Math 2 if they have demonstrated astrong understanding of the topics covered in Accelerated Math 1 (most of Geometry, large portions of what used to be called Algebra II, some probability / statistics). After Accelerated Math 2, students will take Accelerated Math 3 (Accelerated Integrated Precalculus), followed the next year by either AP Calculus (AB or BC) or AP Statistics. Topics include exploration of the characteristics of exponential, logarithmic, and higher degree polynomial functions using tables, graphs, and algebraic techniques; explore inverses of functions; use algebraic models to represent and explore real phenomena; solve a variety of equations and inequalities using numerical, graphical, and algebraic techniques with appropriate technology; use matrices to formulate and solve problems; use linear programming to solve problems; use matrices to represent and solve problems involving vertex-edge; use right triangle trigonometry to formulate and solve problems; investigate the relationships between lines and circles; recognize, analyze, and graph the equations of conic sections; investigate planes and spheres; use sample data to make informal inferences about population means and standard deviations; solve problems by interpreting a normal distribution as a probability distribution; and design and conduct experimental and observational studies.Prerequisite: Accelerated Integrated Advanced Algebra H
Accelerated Integrated Geometry (Accelerated Math 2) 27.0920040.Accelerated Math 2 is a Honors-level course. Self-motivated students are best suited for the rigor of this class. The course builds on itself and on material from previous courses, so students who are willing to seek out additional practice or help on difficult topics will be better able to stay on top of the material and not fall behind. Because this is an accelerated course, there is little time for review or re-teaching built into the schedule. Students are expected to retain information for significant periods of time to ensure that they can apply their knowledge in new situations encountered later in the semester. Students should be self-motivated to find extra practice or to seek extra help with topics they find difficult. The work-load is moderate with homework 3 to 4 nights per week. Good attendance is essential, as in all math courses. Students in the class are freshmen and sophomores.
