Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I took Algebra 2 as a freshman, after having completed Algebra 1 in middle school. Of course, the concepts in Algebra 2 are much more advanced, but, for students that have already taken Algebra 1, I would recommend taking Algebra 2, because many of the other classes freshman year are not as difficult. Additionally, most students take precalculus/trigonometry as juniors, and while it is possible to pass the course without having taken Algebra 2, it is much easier to have a stronger foundation.
Course highlights:
Information on sine/cosine/tangent and systems of equations in this course helped prepare me for precalc/trig
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
If you don't want to take this course because you want to skate through Algebra 1 for the second time, you will have to put in the extra work that you would have had to put in freshman year during junior year, when there are other classes that are more time consuming.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
It is a fun class and a good experience. The teacher teaches well and tries to get along with his students.
Course highlights:

Advice for students:
Take good notes and ask any questions you have. The teacher will be happy to help and try to figure out problems before you ask.
