Algebra 2

Academic Year Mathematics

Students continue their study of algebraic functions and applications in our Algebra 2 course. We start with a review of the key concepts of Algebra 1, expanding upon them to solve more difficult problems. We explore the rich field of polynomials, and lay foundations for calculus with a study of sequences and series. Students learn about a variety of common algebraic forms and important functions, and about tools for understanding new forms and functions they'll encounter in the future. We also lay the groundwork for understanding optimization problems with a study of inequalities. Many of the challenging problems of Algebra 2 come from contests such as AMC 10/12, AIME, and the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament.

Students completing Algebra 2 are ready for our Precalculus course.

Textbook: Intermediate Algebra by Art of Problem Solving.

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Algebra 2 course.
"AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
