Curriculum Overview

  • The Knox County Schools Mathematics program implements a comprehensive, research-based approach to learning mathematics. Our curriculum is carefully aligned with the The Tennessee State Standards for Mathematics.
     

    Algebra II 

     

    Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
