## General Description

Classical Conversations endorses Saxon math as a complete K-12 Curriculum. No curriculum is ever perfect, but Saxon has the history and statistics to prove that it can take a home schooled student through Algebra II and even beyond without the guidance of an expert math teacher.

Saxon *Algebra 2* not only treats topics that are traditionally covered in second-year algebra, it also covers geometry, making this an integrated mathematics course. Specific algebra topics covered include graphical solutions to simultaneous equations, scientific notation, radicals, roots of quadratic equations including complex roots, properties of the real numbers, inequalities and systems of inequalities, logarithms and antilogarithms, exponential equations, basic trigonometric functions, algebra of polynomials, vectors, polar and rectangular coordinate systems, and a wide spectrum of word problems requiring algebra to solve. Considerable time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines.

This kit includes:

**Textbook:**Approximately 120 lessons, including practice questions and problem sets (sometimes referred to as assignment questions)

**Homeschool Packet:**Answers to the tests, lesson practice questions, and problem sets

**Test Forms:**Inserted inside the homeschool packet booklet

**Please note**: The Solutions Manual is sold separately from the Homeschool Kit. Although the Homeschool Packet contains all of the answers, the Solutions Manual contains the answers as well as solution details for each problem.

Students completing

*Algebra 2*will have studied the equivalent of one semester of informal geometry. Applications to other subjects such as physics and chemistry as well as "real-world" problems are covered including gas law, force vector, chemical mixture, percent markups, etc. Set theory, probability and statistics, and other topics are also treated.
