Algebra 2     As more and more states raise their graduation standards, there are an increasing number of students who find themselves faced with the task of completing algebra 2. By developing CORD Algebra 2: Learning in Context, CORD has expanded its ground-breaking series of contextual-based math textbooks. More importantly, teachers are provided a tool to help the student who would traditionally struggle with math succeed and reach their full potential. By combining real-world applications and lab activities with the mathematics being taught, students receive a more meaningful education and are better prepared for state testing…and life.
