This live online Algebra 2 class gives homeschool and independent students a solid foundation for higher level mathematics.
Students will learn how to read, understand, and communicate using mathematical language in daily assignments throughout the year. Emphasis is placed on the interconnectivity of topics as well as continual review of previous topics in this and previous courses. Students will be taught skills, applications, properties, and representations of topics in a multi-dimensional approach. We will learn problem solving on paper as well as using technology such as calculators and spreadsheets to prepare them for future work in college and beyond.
This will be a college preparatory course that will cover all the main concepts required for a high school credit in Algebra 2. Topics included are:
- Functions: graphing, modeling, transforming and solving applications of linear, quadratic, power, radical, exponential, logarithm, polynomial, and trigonometric functions
- Matrix operations and transformations: size, scale, reflections, rotations, translations
- Solving systems of equations and inequalities: graphing, linear combination, substitution, matrices, and linear programming
- Trigonometry: right triangle, Laws of Sines and Cosines, unit circle and radians
- Conic sections: parabolas, circles, ellipses, hyperbolas
- Probability and series: arithmetic and geometric series, counting, permutations and combinations, Pascal’s Triangle and probability with the Binomial Theorem, binomial and normal distributions
Students can expect to spend at least 6-10 hours per week on this class. This time accounts for watching pre-recorded videos, reading daily assignments, completing daily homework, and submitting handwritten weekly assignments. The submitted homework will consist of video concept check questions, daily readings and note-taking, electronic practice questions, and textbook questions, some submitted as scanned written work, and some to be checked against an answer key that will be provided. Parent-proctored chapter tests will be required at the end of each chapter in which students will be required to show all their work. To help students learn good notetaking, notes from each chapter will be submitted and evaluated. Weekly live problem-solving and discussion sessions will be held where we work together on concepts and applications of concepts. Questions are welcomed! All course lectures are pre-recorded and available for students to play back at their convenience.
Students are not required to “meet” at the scheduled discussion time, but it is encouraged. Scheduled discussion times will be recorded for those unable to attend the live discussion times and available for approximately one month afterward.
The honors level of this Algebra 2 course is designed for students interested in the STEM fields who have exceptional abilities, a strong math foundation, and high achievement levels. In addition to covering the topics in Algebra 2, Honors Algebra 2 will require the completion of several projects, some additional assignments throughout the year, and cumulative tests.
Who should enroll?
This course is for students in grades 9-12 who have successfully completed Algebra I and Geometry. Instructor approval is required. Students must complete an application and be approved before registering. The well-prepared applicant will have completed a basic Algebra course, Geometry course, and is familiar with those fundamental concepts. They should have the maturity to diligently complete the assigned homework and seek additional help when needed. Learning how to learn mathematics is stressed in this course, so students who are motivated to improve should apply.
Prerequisites: Algebra 1 & Geometry
- High speed, broadband Internet
- Sound card and microphone (for live sessions)
- Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures
- Scanner or smart phone for submitting tests and homework
- Graphing calculator
Evaluation and Feedback
All course lectures are pre-recorded and available for students to playback at their convenience. Weekly live problem solving and discussion sessions will be held where we collaboratively work on concepts and applications of concepts. Questions are welcomed! Students are not required to “meet” at the scheduled discussion time, but it is encouraged. Scheduled discussion times will be recorded for those unable to attend the live discussion times and available for approximately one month afterward.
Students will be graded on homework, projects, notes, tests, and exams. Submitted student work will be graded and returned within one week of the due dates. Outside of class times, student may contact the teacher with any questions or concerns using the Canvas messages. An additional hour each week is set aside to assist students with Algebra 2 course work. To participate in this extra learning opportunity, students need to register separately. See Algebra 2 Math Lab for details and to register.
Grades are perpetually available throughout the course and parents may contact me through Canvas messages on the course website. Parent-teacher conferences will be offered in the fall and spring of the year.

My daughter completed three classes at AIM Academy with Mrs. Habacivch. Her Algebra 2 experience was incredibly rewarding. Mrs. Habacivch goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure her students understand the topics presented. As a parent, she did a great job keeping me informed of my daughter’s progress and was very diligent about scheduling mid-year review meetings or meet as needed to make sure parents and students were on the same page in terms of class performance and expectations for the remainder of the year. I highly recommend Algebra 2 by Mrs. Habacivch.

Mrs. Habacivch is a wonderful teacher and helps you understand what your learning. I want to public school for my whole life and recently started homeschool but out of all the math teachers I had, I learned the most from her. She helps to explain certain problems in a way that helps you understand it best and she is a very kind, funny person. I would totally recommend this class to another because you get a lot out of it. I want to thank Mrs. Habacivch for all that she has done for me, helping me understand things a lot more, and preparing me for college.
I have recently taken college placement tests and the SAT, and thanks to you, have placed into the classes I needed to take. I just wanted to make sure you knew that I will always remember your teaching!
Thank you so much!
