Algebra II is the crucial high school mathematics course in preparing for a college education.

Taught by nationally recognized math teacher Dr. Murray Siegel, the course begins by relating the foundation of algebra—polynomials—to the numbers with which you are already familiar. We learn to operate with them, graph them, and solve polynomial equations.

The course then progresses to another essential algebraic concept—the function. Functions of all types are investigated: linear, polynomial (including quadratic), rational, and recursive.

Even the aspects of Algebra II considered “difficult to teach” are treated in a “user-friendly” manner so that all learners can truly understand these topics. This includes matrices and determinants, imaginary numbers, sequences and series, and logarithms.

This was the second part of the Algebra course by the Teaching Company. However this course was taught by Professor Siegel at San Houston State University. He had a similar teaching style to Professor Monica Neagoy who taught Algebra I.

The lecture topics were very similar to those lecture topics covered in Algebra I, however since this was an advanced class, Siegel went more in depth as he taught and really expanded on the information received in the first part of the course. This course would have been beneficial for high school and college students.

Siegel mostly focused on different algebraic functions such as Linear and Quadratic functions. The whole of the course seemed to revolve around them.

What I found most interesting was he answered the question that I had constantly asked myself in high school math: “What is the point of learning this”. I did not go on to use algebra after graduating from high school, but this course did show how you could have applied the concepts that were learned.

Indeed the content discussed in this course was quite a jump from Algebra I, so it is best to understand these concepts first before moving onto this course. For this, there was the option of video or DVD. I would suggest the picture quality of the DVD if you are able to obtain it.
