ANALYTICAL ALGEBRA
The Process Standards demonstrate the ways in which students should develop conceptual understanding of mathematical content, and the ways in which students should synthesize and apply mathematical skills.
Analytical Algebra should focus on the application of mathematics in various disciplines including business, finance, science, career and technical education, and social sciences. This course covers most of the traditional Algebra II standards, but the focus is on the application of algebraic concepts rather than theoretical concepts.
Building on previous work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, Analytical Algebra should extend to include polynomial, rational, radical, logarithmic, and other functions. Students should be able to model real-world problems with various functions using and translating between multiple representations. Additionally, students should be able to interpret key features of function models within a given context. Students should also build on previous work done with data analysis, statistics, including univariate and bivariate data, and probability.
