I'm working on a course that follows algebra 2. I've been talking to a lot of Algebra 2 teachers to see what they cover and its been hard getting straight answers. Its as if they all think they will get in trouble for not covering the whole curriculum. (which is written as if you'll cover the book cover to cover) They all preface their statements with "when i had 180 days I could cover a lot more." I'm always thinking to myself, "I didn't ask that..." So...I thought I could get a better answer from all of you. 1. What topics do you cover? 2. How much is review of Algebra 1? 3. How much is the Algebra 1 that they should have gotten but didn't? 4. How many chapters can you cover? One brave soul told me they get up to Chapter 7 in the McDougall book with skipping a lot of 5 and 6.
