Modified 6/21/2011280035-66040Radnor High School Course SyllabusAlgebra 2 Honors 0453Credits: 1Grades: 9, 10, 11Weighted:Length: 1 YearFormat: Meets dailyPrerequisite: 8th grade Algebra 1 with a “C” and Honors GeometryOverall Description of Course This course reviews and extends an understanding of the number system, formulas, equations and graphs. Subject matter includes quadratics, radicals, exponents, complex numbers, logarithms and exponential functions. An emphasis is placed on both the development of the concept of function and graphing functions using a transformational approach. The theory of equations and sequences and series are introduced during the course. Students are challenged to apply skills to new problems and to connect skills and concepts. Students are expected to handle a demanding workload. A graphing calculator is required.Algebra 2 Honors is a Honors level course which is intended for the motivated math student who is very good with mathematics but needs more teacher guidance to assist in the mastery of the material. The course will involve accelerated pacing and a demanding workload with some written explanations expected. Students on this level will be prepared to take AP Calculus AB. MARKING PERIOD ONECommon Core StandardsN-VM.6. (+) Use matrices to represent and manipulate data, e.g., to represent payoffs or incidence relationships in a network.N-VM.7. (+) Multiply matrices by scalars to produce new matrices, e.g., as when all of the payoffs in a game are doubled.N-VM.8. (+) Add, subtract, and multiply matrices of appropriate dimensions.N-VM.9. (+) Understand that, unlike multiplication of numbers, matrix multiplication for square matrices is not a commutative operation, but still satisfies the associative and distributive properties.A-SSE.3. Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.a. Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.b. Complete the square in a quadratic expression to reveal the maximum or minimum value of the function it defines.A-CED.1. Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions. A-CED.2. Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.A-REI.3. Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.A-REI.4. Solve quadratic equations in one variable.F-IF.1. Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range. If f is a function and x is an element of its domain, then f(x) denotes the output of f corresponding to the input x. The graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x).F-IF.2. Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context.F-IF.8. Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function. a. Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, extreme values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.S-ID.6. Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot, and describe how the variables are related.S-ID.7. Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.S-ID.8. Compute (using technology) and interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear fit.Keystone Connections:Student Objectives:At the end of this quarter, student should be able to successfully complete the following skills:Evaluate and write sigma notationsCalculate absolute valuesSolve equations by using properties of equalityExpress solutions of equations as ordered pairsApply properties of inequalitySolve linear inequalities in one variableGraph solutions of inequalities on the number lineUse midpoint and distance formulasUnderstand function notationFind domain and range of a functionMultiply a matrix by a scalarSolve matrix equationAdd, subtract and multiply matricesCalculate probabilityUse point-slope, slope-intercept and general linear forms of equations of linesUse slopes to determine if lines are perpendicular or parallelSolve system of linear equation graphically and algebraicallyGraph linear inequalitiesFind union and intersection of sets defined by inequalitiesWrite equations that represent linear functionsRecognize direct variationFit a line to data by using linear regression in the calculatorRecognize and graph compound (piecewise) functionsConvert absolute value functions into piecewise functions and vice versaMultiply to form quadraticsRemove common factors from expressionsFactor trinomials and special productsGraph quadratic functionsFind the real zeros of quadratic functionsSolve quadratic equations by factoring and quadratic formulaComplete the square to find the maximum/minimum value of a quadratic functionComplete the square to solve quadratic equationsAnalyze and solve problems involving maximum and minimum valuesAnalyze and solve projectile motionMaterials & TextsTEXTSAlgebra 2 & Trigonometry, John Benson, McDougal Littell/Houghton Mifflin, 1991Activities, Assignments, & AssessmentsACTIVITIESProblem Solving Introduce Problem Solving Strategies Use Diagrams & Models to Solve Problems Find Patterns Use Sigma Notation to find Sums Write Sums in Sigma Notation The Language of Algebra Simplify Expressions Solve Equations using Properties of Equality Solve & Graph Inequalities in One Variable Solve Absolute Value Equations & Inequalities Use Midpoint & Distance Formulas Understand Function Notation Perform Operations with Matrices Calculate Probabilities Simplify Expressions containing Exponents & Radicals Linear Relationships Write Equations of Lines Graph Linear Equations Solve Systems of Linear Equations Graph Inequalities Recognize Direct Variation Find a Line of Best Fit Graph Compound Functions Quadratic Functions Multiply Polynomials Factor Polynomials Graph Quadratic Functions Solve Quadratic Equations Complete the Square Solve Real World Problems using Quadratic Functions ASSIGNMENTS#01: Read the text and the examples in your book for the following sections: 1.1, 1.2, and 1.4.

(+) Know the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra; show that it is true for quadratic polynomials.A-SSE.3. Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.c. Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions.A-SSE.4. Derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems.A-APR.1. Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; add, subtract, and multiply polynomials.A-APR.2. Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x – a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x – a) is a factor of p(x).A-APR.3. Identify zeros of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeros to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.A-APR.6. Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write a(x)/b(x) in the form q(x) + r(x)/b(x), where a(x), b(x), q(x), and r(x) are polynomials with the degree of r(x) less than the degree of b(x), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.A-APR.7. (+) Understand that rational expressions form a system analogous to the rational numbers, closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by a nonzero rational expression; add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions.A-REI.2. Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.F-IF.3. Recognize that sequences are functions, sometimes defined recursively, whose domain is a subset of the integers.F-IF.8. Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function. b. Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, identify percent rate of change in functions such as y = (1.02)t, y = (0.97)t, y = (1.01)12t, y = (1.2)t/10, and classify them as representing exponential growth or decay.F-BF.1. Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.F-BF.2. Write arithmetic and geometric sequences both recursively and with an explicit formula, use them to model situations, and translate between the two forms.F-BF.5. (+) Understand the inverse relationship between exponents and logarithms and use this relationship to solve problems involving logarithms and exponents.F-LE.1. Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions. F-LE.2. Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).F-LE.4. For exponential models, express as a logarithm the solution to abct = d where a, c, and d are numbers and the base b is 2, 10, or e; evaluate the logarithm using technology.Keystone
