ThinkTank Learning builds its classes to mimic the local high school curriculum. For this reason, there may be some variations from one center to the next, but the general list of topics in our Algebra 3-4 class (also called Algebra 2 in some districts) includes: interpreting terms, factors, and coefficients in a polynomial or an expression; apply basic factoring techniques to second- and third-degree polynomials; mastering the standard and vertex forms of quadratic expressions; utilizing the properties of exponents to manipulate exponential functions; demonstrating basic laws of logarithms; determine the sum of basic arithmetic and geometric series; manipulating polynomials, rational expressions, and complex numbers; mastering the Binomial Theorem of expansion, exploring Pascal’s Triangle, and introducing combinations and permutations.
Of all the classes in the standard California math progression, this one most widely varied from one school to the next. Some schools combine it with geometry, others combine it with trigonometry, while still others combine it with math analysis. The topics listed here are the ones specified in the California state math standards. These standards are the foundation for our class, and we build from there to blend with the local curriculum.
