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 progress through the course at their own pace and are expected to watch videos and review notes regularly. Each student is assigned to a CTY Instructor to help them during their course. This course does not have any synchronous class meetings, but students may schedule one-on-one virtual meetings directly with the instructor to answer questions or concerns. Students can also contact their instructor via email with any 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.
Instructors use virtual classroom software allowing video, voice, text, screen sharing and whiteboard interaction. Students are strongly encouraged to work on the course at least 1 hour a day, 5 days a week (for a 6-month enrollment) and email their instructors at least once per week.
Videos from YouTube or other web providers may be present in the course. Video recommendations or links provided at end of videos are generated by the video host provider and are not CTY recommendations.
