MAA401A: Algebra IIA (2017)

Algebra IIA is the first semester of Algebra II, a course required for graduation and aligned to DoDEA's content standards and the College and Career-Ready Standards for Mathematical Practice. Throughout the course, students will investigate the relationship between complex numbers and other real numbers and analyze quadratic relationships with complex solutions, define and use arithmetic and geometric sequences and series to solve problems, analyze the inverse relationship between exponents and logarithms, analyze equations and graphs for conic sections (circle, ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola), and analyze relations, functions, and their graphs. Through the content, students will build mathematical habits of mind through reasoning, problem-solving, and mathematical modeling. Course Note: Algebra IIB must also be completed to meet the full Algebra II (1 credit) graduation requirement.
