For all students rising into Algebra 2, Algebra 2 with Trigonometry, or Algebra 2 with Trigonometry Honors after completing a full course in Geometry. St. Luke's JumpStart Algebra 2 will be led by Upper School Math Department Chair, Mary Frederick, a.k.a. Coach Fred. It will serve as a review of the major concepts from Algebra 1 that students need to be successful in Algebra 2. These include linear functions, systems of equations and quadratic functions. There will be a heavy emphasis on fractional equations, graphing, and factoring quadratics. The course is designed for many levels of review so there will be practice for every level and will serve as a pathway to starting the year off right in Algebra 2. The course will have minimal homework each night to practice and review. If time allows, we will review items from the Algebra 2 summer work packet. Students will leave with a practical guide to refer back to as they delve deep into these topics in the first semester of Algebra 2.
