This is a full-length online Honors Algebra II course for accelerated students. In this course, students will extend topics introduced in Algebra I and learn to manipulate and apply more advanced functions and algorithms.
Online course materials, such as videos, notes, interactive webpages, and practice problems with solutions, are provided for the student. Students are expected to watch videos and review notes regularly. Each student is assigned to a CTY instructor to help them during their course. Videos in the course are provided by Thinkwell.
In this course, participation in forums and synchronous online virtual sessions are required as part of the final grade. Discussion forums are located within the course where students will be required to respond to a given prompt and then comment on responses by other students. Online sessions, led by a CTY instructor, are held in Adobe Connect, which allows for video, voice, text, screen sharing, and whiteboard interaction.
Students can contact their instructors via email with questions or concerns at any time. Live one-on-one online review sessions can be scheduled as well, to prepare for the graded assessments, which include homework, chapter exams, and a cumulative midterm and final.
