MATH 209-210: Algebra II
This Algebra II course is at the same time both very broad and very narrow. It is broad because it covers a large range of mathematical objects, many of which will be new to the student; it is narrow because the same set of logical and arithmetical procedures is applied in the manipulation and analysis of these objects. As such, the consistent focus of the course is the development of familiarity and ease with basic algebraic tools along with a sense of abstract strategy and goal-oriented patience. In Algebra II, students will study inequalities, linear equations, quadratic equations, polynomial and rational expressions, exponents and logarithms, and systems of linear equations.
