Do we need to do the last chapter of the book for Chalkdust Algebra 2? I am not a math person, but it looks like at least some of it is either trig or precalc maybe?


Here are the topics:

Sequences and Series

Arithmentic sequences

Geometric sequences and series

Binomial theorem

Imo no. It should be covered in precalc.

I say do it.  There is an increasing emphasis on that stuff.  Your child will get it again in precalc and again in calc if they do BC, but repetition isn't necessarily a bad thing.

We do Chalk Dust, and our children study those topics in Alg. 2, then again in Precalc in a little more depth. They are worth studying both times to review and really learn them. Fwiw, our oldest 3 have gone on to become math majors.
