Welcome to what promises to be an exciting school year. First and foremost, regardless of outside circumstances, your education is important to me: I will take every effort to make sure that you, the student, are the priority. This class represents both the continuation of your education in Algebra as well as a step toward higher-level critical thinking and problem solving. Much of what we will do in Algebra 2 is an extension of an Algebra 1 concept, so there will be many chances for review.
