 Teacher Support               I am available for help every morning at 6:30 except for Mondays. A tutoring schedule is also posted on
 (Help sessions etc.)          the bulletin boards in my classroom and in the math hall.

This is the second in a sequence of mathematics courses designed to prepare students to enter college at the calculus level.
The course incorporates 1½ years of content in the standard math sequence. It includes exponential and logarithmic
functions; matrices; polynomial functions of higher degree; conic sections; planes and spheres; and population means and
standard deviations and normal distributions. With this course, students complete full content of Geometry and Algebra II.

Prerequisites: Accelerated Integrated Algebra
