## Alg II Syllabus & Supplies

andThis syllabus identifies necessary supplies for Algebra II and provides projected dates on which each Algebra II topic will be covered. It should only be used for planning purposes and is subject to change. Dates shown are for Green days:

Required Supplies: Pencils, Loose-leaf paper, Graph paper, 3-ring binder, and TI-83/84 Graphing Calculator.

A calculator can be borrowed for use during class, but will not be available to take home for homework. However, you may access one on-line at www.desmos.com/calculator. In addition, I highly recommend purchase of a TI-84 for those math students who will be moving up the math ladder to bigger and better things, like functions or pre-calculus!
