**AGS 3B **is the second course of AGS 3, which is usually scheduled in the Winter/Spring term. Students who successfully finish this Algebra 2 /AGS 3 course are ready to take the F5: PreCalculus or ready to prepare for the SAT math test.

**AGS 3** is the full school year curriculum. This is the supportive/enhanced AGS 3 class taught in a different way. We are teaching AGS 3 at sunshine using the Holt California Algebra 2 curriculum to build up the fundamental concepts and skills in the sequence that AGS 3 requires, with much more in-depth understanding. We also use the AGS 3 curriculum to ensure the class is aligning with the topics in AGS 3.

**Who will benefit from this class?**

- Students who are taking AGS 3 at school but need more support to learn AGS 3 systematically with clear instruction and more in-depth understanding.
- Students who want to learn ahead of what they are learning at school to prepare for the skip-level math placement test for the next school year.
