Transformations of Functions and Applications of Systems of Equations

Algebra 2 will be moving into applications of systems of equations that will range from profit, cost, and revenue, to mixtures, to numerical relationships, to planes, trains, and automobiles. It should be a good solid honing of your equation writing skills as well as your ability to manipulate equations. I look forward to lively debate, self-reflection, and solid revisions of you personal approaches as we go through the problem-solving process together. Please find some relevant resources below:
