Algebra 2A*

Why This Class

You want an open door for your student to embark on whatever career path they choose. Understanding advanced algebra is essential for anyone hoping to work in science, engineering, or technology—and it’s an entrance requirement for most college programs. Taking this course helps ensure your student can pursue their purpose without being held back.

Students in this self-paced course leverage their existing math skills to solve problems involving variables instead of numbers. With the help of our math learning platform and math tutors as needed, they learn about exponential functions, radical functions, complex numbers, and logarithms. In the process, students gain skills that will especially prepare them for success in a math-based trade or technical career.

Students emerge from this course with an enhanced ability to notice what changes and what remains constant—both in math and life. They are well-prepared for higher-level math studies and the career path of their choice.
