Algebra 2 is an academically rigorous course that continues the integration of algebra and geometry into the study of trigonometry, advanced algebra topics, transformational geometry, and statistics. Algebra 2 is offered as a Regents-level course as well as an Honors-level course. The graphing calculator is used throughout the course to integrate numerical, algebraic, graphical and analytical understanding. Students will be required to use the calculator for class work, homework and for the Algebra 2 Math Regents exam in June. Successful completion of this course and a passing score on the Algebra 2 Regents exam provide students with the third of three Regents mathematics course credits necessary to earn a New York State Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation.
