Algebra II Topics by Design

by Russell F. Jacobs

This title is a sequel to our popular activities book, Algebra I Topics by Design. It covers topics usually contained in the second-year algebra course. However, there are many activities that can be handled by students who have completed only a one-year course in algebra. Each teacher who is planning to use Algebra II Topics by Design should examine each page of exercises to determine if they are suitable for his or her students. Often a few minutes of review or a short discussion of topics new to students will enable them to complete a set of exercises successfully. The format of Algebra II Topics by Design is the same as for our other "design" books.
