This 4-mod course takes an integrated approach to the content of traditional college preparatory Algebra 2 and Geometry courses, and covers most IGCSE Core/IBMYP 5 Core topics not covered in Math 1. Students do extensive work with linear and quadratic functions and their graphs, including consideration of quadratic inequalities and quadratic equations with complex roots, and are introduced to polynomial and exponential functions, arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, and descriptive statistics.
Students need not take all four mods in the same year. Students who have mastered the content of the optional fifth mod of Math 1 may elect to take the Math 3/4 sequence instead of this course.
Taken over the course of 9th and 10th grades, Math 1 and Math 2 prepare interested students to begin IB SL Mathematics: Applications in 11th grade.
Min-Max Credit Hours: 1.0-4.0
