Essential Math II


This course will continue to strengthen students’ algebraic and geometric skills. There will be a concentrated study of function notation. Students will use algebra and graphing to describe quadratic and radical functions, as well as inverse variation. Students will apply basic ideas of triangle relationships, including the Pythagorean Theorem, and will be introduced to similar triangles and the trigonometric ratios. Students will explore basic probability and counting problems. Topics will be based on students’ needs and aligned with Math II Standards. A graphing calculator is required, and a TI-84 is recommended.

Note: While this course meets Cardinal Gibbons and the state’s requirements for graduation, and the course is a good fit for students who find Math challenging, it does not meet the NCAA guidelines for eligibility in D1 or D2 schools.
