For all students rising into Algebra 2 with trigonometry or Algebra 2 with trigonometry honors after completing a full course in Geometry. St. Luke's JumpStart Algebra 2 with Trigonometry 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 with trigonometry. These include linear functions, systems of equations and quadratic functions. There will be a heavy emphasis on fractional equations, graphing, and factoring quadratics, we will also look at the idea of translating function graphs. The course is designed for those entering Algebra 2 with Trigonometry & Honors and will serve as a pathway to starting the year off right in Algebra 2. The course will have some homework each night to practice and review. 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 with trigonometry.
