Algebra 2 Student Textbook
This Algebra 2 text is your students’ gateway to higher mathematics and sciences and is essential to preparing your student for college. Students will further investigate concepts that were introduced in Algebra 1, such as linear equations, linear inequalities, polynomials, probability, statistics, and more. They will also transition into Pre-calculus as they study exponential and logarithmic functions and matrices and are introduced to trigonometric equations and identities.
Step-by-step instructions guide your students through easy-to-read examples and build a framework for solving practice problems. Complete with daily exercises, detailed examples and diagrams, review exercises, and an index and glossary of terms, students will be equipped with the tools they need to succeed in Algebra 2. The use of a scientific calculator is generally encouraged. Non-consumable textbook. Recommended for grade 10.
* Concepts taught in Algebra 1 are reviewed to provide a solid foundation for Algebra 2 instruction.
* Real-life applications in word problems emphasize the practical use of algebra in various careers and everyday life.
* Important definitions and key concepts are boxed for easier studying.
* The Christian philosophy that permeates this textbook emphasizes the orderly design of the great Engineer and Architect of the universe as reflected in God’s mathematical laws.
* Step-by-step examples are easy to follow.
* Practice and review exercises encourage retention of material. Chapter, semester, and final review exercises provide additional opportunity for practice.
* Repeated insistence on the checking of algebraic solutions emphasizes accuracy.
* Introductory applications of trigonometry prepare your students for higher math courses.
* An appendix of formulas and key concepts provides a quick review when needed.
Presents basic algebra; equations and inequalities; polynomial equations and inequalities; functions; systems of equations and inequalities; matrices; exponential and logarithmic functions; triangles and basic trigonometry; trigonometry and the cartesian plane; sequences, series, and counting; probability; statistics. 170 lessons
Although new to our catalog, this math curriculum is certainly not new to the homeschool community. Abeka has been a tried-and-true math program amongst homeschoolers for many years. Taking a traditional, spiral approach, this series presents math concepts at the simplest level and builds on those concepts each year while offering continual review so students can fully grasp the concepts being taught. Abeka also teaches math from a faith based worldview and integrates biblical application throughout the program.
The elementary math lays a solid foundation for the higher level mathematics, and emphasizes oral and written drill. For the younger grade levels, the lesson instruction includes visual aids, games and activities. As the grades progress, the lessons become more independent but are still teacher directed. For Kindergarten, a worktext and teacher key is available along with several manipulative components. Math kits for grades 1-6 are sold in a child and parent kit (each sold separately). The child kit includes the consumable worktext and a test/speed drills book. The contents of the parent kit vary depending on the grade level; however all will include a curriculum guide for lesson plans as well as answer keys for the worktext and test/speed drills. It is suggested to purchase both the student and parent kits for a full math curriculum. The curriculum guide incorporates flashcards/charts into some of the lessons. These are available to purchase separately.
Junior high moves toward Intermediate Mathematics and PreAlgebra. Worktexts at these levels are still consumable. Intermediate Mathematics is a new and improved seventh grade course, reviewing all math skills previously learned while introducing algebra and geometry. This new course focuses more on understanding the concepts rather than just memorizing. The Intermediate Kit includes the worktext and test/quiz book. A teacher edition, solution key, supplemental exercises book and key are all available for this level. The newly revised PreAlgebra text continues with review and bridges the gap between basic mathematical concepts and more advanced topics. This level has a worktext, quiz/test book and key, teacher edition, and solution key.
High school levels include Algebra 1 through Precalculus. Concepts are taught in a clear, logical order with detailed explanations and step-by-step examples. Student textbooks are non-consumable at this level. Each section has practice problems taught in that section and review problems from previous sections. A teacher edition (to help guide your student through the courses), solution key, quiz/test book and key are also available for each course.
Abeka Math is a solid, traditional math program with a biblical focus. Each year builds upon the previous while continuing to review. The math facts are drilled and mastered at the elementary levels so students can be confident and successful in subsequent levels. The review can move rather quickly; therefore if your student is moving into Abeka from another program, you should consider taking a look at the scope and sequence before deciding where to start in the series.
