Algebra 2 covers all topics that are traditionally covered in second-year algebra as well as a considerable amount of geometry. In fact, students completing Algebra 2 will have studied the equivalent of one semester of informal geometry. Time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines. Real-world problems are included along with applications to other subjects such as physics and chemistry.

Saxon Algebra 2 not only treats topics that are traditionally covered in second-year algebra, it covers geometry also making this an integrated mathematics.

Specific algebra topics covered include the following: - graphical solution 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 range of word problems requiring algebra to solve.

Considerable time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines.

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.
