IEOC Algebra II Content Coverage
Interactive released itemsPrint-ready
The Iowa End-of-Course assessments are designed to assess student knowledge and
skills in a variety of subject areas. The test consists of 30 multiple-choice items
and is designed to be administered during a single class period. The test items,
which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, reflect educator input and
a rigorous quality-control process to ensure appropriateness, content accuracy,
A summary of the content covered within the Algebra II test is presented below.
Number and Quantity
The Real Number System
Topics may include using properties of rational exponents and using properties of
rational and irrational numbers.
The Complex Number System
Topics may include performing arithmetic operations with complex numbers, representing
complex numbers and their operations on the complex plane, and using complex numbers
in polynomial identities and equations.
Seeing Structure in Expressions
Topics may include interpreting the structure of expressions and writing expressions
in equivalent forms to solve problems.
Arithmetic with Polynomials and Rational Expressions
Topics may include performing arithmetic operations on polynomials, understanding
the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomials, using polynomial identities
to solve problems, and rewriting rational expressions.
Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities
Topics may include solving linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations,
rational equations, and radical equations in one variable; solving systems of equations;
and graphing linear equations and inequalities, and polynomial, rational, absolute
value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
Topics may include using function notation and analyzing linear, quadratic, square
root, cube root, piecewise-defined, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic
Topics may include creating functions describing relationships between quantities,
using arithmetic operations on functions, composing functions, translating between
explicit and recursive forms of sequences, understanding the effects of function
transformations, finding inverse functions, and understanding and using the inverse
relationship between exponents and logarithms to solve problems.
Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Models
Topics may include constructing and comparing linear, quadratic, and exponential
functions; interpreting different representations of linear and exponential functions,
including the parameters of the functions in terms of the context represented; and
evaluating logarithms as solutions of exponential functions.
