This course thoroughly presents the basic concepts of algebra. Topics include real numbers, algebraic expressions, algebraic properties, linear equations and inequalities, graphing, functions, linear systems, exponents, quadratic equations, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, radicals, probability, data analysis and problem solving.

This course reviews concepts and skills from Algebra I and then delves into new topics from algebra and trigonometry including linear functions, linear inequalities, linear systems, matrices, quadratic functions, factoring, polynomials, polynomial functions, rational exponents, radical functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, rational functions, quadratic relations, conic sections, counting methods, probability, data analysis, statistics, sequences, series, trigonometric ratios, trigonometric functions, trigonometric graphs, and trigonometric identities.

This practical course deals with mathematical applications in everyday life. Topics covered include a review of computational skills with whole numbers, decimal numbers, and fractions, measurement, pre-algebra to intermediate algebra, solid figures, triangle geometry and basic trigonometry, and statistics. Special emphasis is given to making real-life connections to various trades.
