# Algebra 2

Master Teacher: Angela Ellis
Duration: Yearlong course offered in fall/spring (32 weeks).
Suggested High School Credit Value: 1 credit.
Tuition: \$629 for HSLDA Members / \$699 for non-members

Description: Algebra 2 builds on the concepts covered in Algebra 1 and Geometry. Students use algebra to analyze data, and discover how algebra reflects the orderliness of God and the regularity of His created universe. Similar to Algebra 1, Algebra 2 emphasizes real-world examples and applications to demonstrate the theory of functional relationships—for instance, students learn that the speed of a satellite is a function of the diameter of its orbit. Through this method of instruction, students observe how these theories operate in a concrete manner.

• 60-90 minutes of live class instruction
• 3 recorded lectures
• 30 homework problems per lecture (self-graded)

Throughout the year, students complete a quiz or test every 2-3 weeks as well as an exam at the end of each semester.

• ## What books will I use in Algebra 2?

The official booklist for Algebra 2 is now available. In the official booklist, you will find information about the editions, book descriptions, and ISBN numbers.

You can order course materials for competitive prices through the Christianbook.com bookstore. Use the Textbook Finder to locate the required resources for your courses. Please note that while most books are available through Christianbook.com, some titles are not carried and will need to be purchased elsewhere.

• ## Prerequisites

Students should successfully complete Algebra 1 and Geometry before taking Algebra 2. For help determining if your student is ready for this course, please use our self-graded Algebra 2 Readiness Test.

• ## What is a Live Online Class Session in Algebra 2?

In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

• ## What if I have a schedule conflict with the listed Algebra 2 class time?

All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
