Who Should Take?
Students should have a mastery of basic algebra up through and including quadratic equations before taking this course. Typically this class follows our Introduction to Geometry class.
This course goes beyond what you would find in a typical honors Algebra curriculum. Algebra courses vary widely in their definitions, but our Intermediate Algebra class covers topics typically found in honors Algebra 2 and Precalculus classes, as well as many topics that are not found in most other curricula. Students who have completed a typical honors Algebra 2 course elsewhere may be ready for Intermediate Algebra.
