Algebra II – 099 – Fall 2017

Welcome to Algebra II. This is where to come to verify schedules, objectives, and assignments for this class.

Syllabus

The objectives and description of this course is found in the Algebra II Class Syllabus.

Priority Standards for 090 (Algebra I)

These are the concepts each student should master by the end of the semester:

  • Function Notation
  • Rational Expressions
  • Radical Expressions
  • Rational Exponents
  • Quadratic Functions

Rules for Class

All applicable Colorado Early Education – Fort Collins rules. In this class I have two rules that are very important to me:

  1. Treat each person in this room with the respect with which you would like to be treated.
  2. Except when in an organized group discussion, only one person speaks at a time.

Motivation

There is an extra-credit opportunity by reading an article, watching a simple video, and writing answers about your experiences. Go here for the question sheet and pointers to the article and video.

Hints

As I see certain aspects of Algebra where several of the students are struggling, I will add information to my Hints file to help. If you have suggestions on what you would like to see here, please let me know.
