```PLEASANT VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT
PLANNED COURSE CURRICULUM GUIDE
Algebra II
I.
COURSE DESCRIPTION AND INTENT:
Algebra II is primarily an extension of Algebra I. However, a more rigorous approach is
taken in the study of the real number system. The first part of the course involves real
number concepts and skills, the solution of linear equations and inequalities, solving
verbal problems, properties of polynomials, and rational expressions. The second part of
the course deals with relations and functions, irrational numbers
and quadratic relations. Students must have successfully completed Algebra I. *Note: All
students enrolled in this course are required to take the Keystone Exam.
Note: The course can be taken to meet the school and state requirement as one of
three mathematics credits necessary for graduation. Enrollment in this course is not
limited to sophomores. To the reader: The topics of this course are grouped
according to Algebraic Structure, they do not necessarily appear in sequential order.
