Advanced Algebra/Trig

This course extends the study of algebra begun in Algebra AB.  Familiar topics such as equations, exponents, graphs, systems of equations and polynomials are studied in more depth. New concepts include variation, sequences, matrices, transformations of functions and graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, and quadratic functions.  The trigonometry of right triangles is extended to general triangles and the unit circle.  Throughout this course there is a strong emphasis on applications of mathematics.  A TI-83/84 Plus graphing calculator is required.
