Honors Algebra II
- Grades 7-11
This full-length online Honors Algebra II course expands upon topics introduced in Algebra I to teach you how to manipulate and apply more advanced functions and operations to polynomials, radicals, logarithms, exponentials, sequences, trigonometric identities, probability, and statistics. By the end of the course, you’ll be prepared to tackle concepts in Pre-Calculus and Statistics. You’ll be assigned to a CTY instructor to help you throughout the course using virtual classroom software such as video, voice, text, screen sharing, and whiteboard.

Group meetings will be recorded for students who are unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts.
