Algebra 2 - Kolbe Academy

Algebra 2

The Algebra 2 (K) course moves at a very reasonable pace for most high school students.  It is meant to be a college preparatory course in nature, taking the student through a great number of Algebra 2 concepts but also spending a little more time on reviewing Algebra 1 than the honors course.  Upon completion of Algebra 2, students will be ready to tackle any PreCalculus course the following year.

Topics covered:

  • Linear functions
  • Systems of linear equations & inequalities
  • Quadratic functions & complex numbers
  • Exponential & logarithmic functions
  • Rational algebraic functions
  • Irrational algebraic functions
  • Quadratic relations & systems (circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, & parabolas)


  • Algebra 1

Students taking this course for Kolbe Core (K) credit are expected to complete daily assignments, periodic exams and quizzes.  Kolbe Honors (H) students will go into more depth and cover more material than the Kolbe Core (K) students.

Assignment due-dates and grades are established by the parent.  Optionally, a student may be enrolled in the Self-Paced Plus© grading assistance program to receive grading assistance from a Kolbe Academy faculty or staff member on designated assignments in the course.  In this case, parents will still submit final grades to Kolbe for the course, but may choose to incorporate the graded assignments into the student’s overall grade or use the Kolbe-graded assignments to assist in arriving at the student’s final grade.

  • Grading by a highly qualified teacher for selected assignments (listed below) in the course.
  • Access to teacher through the course’s discussion board.
  • Option to report grade given by the teacher, or to report a grade assigned by parent.
  • The pacing is still established by the parent in conjunction with the student’s goals and academic calendar.
  • Assignments will be graded within 1-2 weeks of the submission date, excluding holiday breaks.  (For the quickest grading, students should turn assignments in incrementally throughout the year.  If a student turns in multiple assignments to be graded at once, expect a response time of 1-2 weeks per assignment submitted.)
