High School Algebra 2 Curriculum

Students typically learn Algebra II in 11th grade. An Algebra II curriculum usually builds on knowledge and skills that are gained in Algebra 1 and reinforced in Geometry, including relationships between quantities through equations and inequalities, graphing of functions, and trigonometry.

In high school, Algebra 2 helps students gain an understanding of statistics and probability, exponents and logarithms, and mathematical modeling. In general, the Algebra 2 course covers components in four critical areas: functions, collecting and analyzing data, periodic phenomena, and polynomials.

How to Teach Algebra II

Teaching a higher-level math course can be challenging, particularly for those of us who took very different versions of math when we were in high school. The good news is that you do not have to do this alone. There are many resources available, and there are homeschoolers who have walked the path already.

Here are some steps to get you started toward success with high school Algebra 2:

  • Follow the sequence of your Algebra 2 curriculum in order to ensure that topics are presented in a logical manner.
  • Encourage your 11th grader to set up an environment and schedule that will allow for sustained concentration for periods of learning that are not too long.
  • Since higher-level math courses tend to build on prior learning, help your child identify and address knowledge or skill gaps prior to moving onto new topics.
  • Check to make sure your 11th grader has good strategies for memorizing equations, studying processes, and checking answers.
  • Understand that 11th grade can be a stressful transitional period because your child may be balancing academics, work, activities, and a social life while looking forward to what is next after high school.  Be patient!
  • Vary the ways that information is presented, and seek multiple presentations (i.e., text, videos, demonstrations) for the more complex topics.
  • Provide your 11th grader with the flexibility and time to revisit material, use additional resources, and redo assignments, quizzes, and tests in order to achieve mastery.
  • Notice and help your child celebrate accomplishments in the course.
  • Reach out to other high school homeschoolers personally or online to get advice, find resources or tutors, or simply reassure yourself that you are doing the best for your child!

Learning Objectives for Algebra II

At this level, your child’s goals and objectives for Algebra 2 may be very specific, targeting discrete concepts or skills. Here are some examples of 11th grade Algebra 2 learning goals and objectives:

  • Evaluate sums, differences, products, and quotients of functions.
  • Use the discriminant to determine the number and type of roots of a quadratic equation.
  • Determine the roots of and factor a polynomial function.
  • Graph rational functions that have only vertical or horizontal asymptotes.
  • Write one-variable radical inequalities to model problems.
  • Solve logarithmic expressions by converting between logarithmic and exponential forms.
  • Compare sine, cosine, and tangent values for angles having the same reference angle.
  • Analyze a function rule or graph to determine transformations of the parent function.
