Welcome to Algebra II!
ALL ABOUT ALGEBRA
Dating back to c. 1650 BC, civilizations have been solving for the unkowns using Algebra. The earliest evidence dates back to the Ancient Egyptians utilizng Algebra to solve linear equation with both one and two unknowns. The first to write about Algebra was Persian Mathematician Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi. Given the nickname "The Father of Algebra", al-Khwarizmi's work in mathematics using wortds had one goal: problem solving
“When I consider what people generally want in calculating, I found that it always is a number.”
What's the point?
"Why learn Algebra? Finding X is only useful if you're a pirate."
The purpose of this course is to utilize our key mathematical practices and apply them to Algebra II. Our course will build on prior knowledge from Algebra I and Geometry and ensure that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
