Grade 11 - Florida Mathematics

Florida Algebra II A - Semester 1 (Credit: 0.50)

Algebra is a branch of mathematics that uses symbols in place of numbers to describe and generalize relationships. You have worked with rational numbers in prior courses. In Florida Algebra 2A, you will perform operations and identify restrictions on rational expressions (expressions that contain rational numbers as coefficients). You will also analyze and graph polynomial functions. Florida Algebra 2A will introduce you to a new concept, complex numbers. Complex numbers rely on an imaginary unit, i, where i2 = -1. You will plot complex numbers in the complex number plane and solve quadratic equations in the complex number system. In the last unit, you will examine and apply trigonometric functions.
