# Back To The Starting Point

With the start of the 2nd quarter of the 2021 - 2022 school year, I find myself teaching at a much slower pace than previous years before the start of the pandemic. For example, I spent two and a half weeks reviewing Algebra 2 before I even started on my Trigonometry curriculum.

I reviewed the main parts of Algebra 2 where I separated the review into three sections:

1. Functions

a. Polynomial Functions - linear, quadratic, cubic

b. Exponential/Logarithmic Functions

2. Equations

a. Polynomial Equations - finding zeros of the polynomial functions (n = 1, 2, 3)

3. Absolute value equations and inequalities

Since most of the students were on distance learning for all of the school year 2020 - 2021, I asked the students what sections they needed to cover and they wanted to go over. With that, I covered everything on these three sections in two and a half weeks.

Here is an Algebra 2 example problem I gave my Trigonometry students at the start of the year:
