Algebra 2 - AoPS Academy

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.

"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
