To me it seems MUCH more than I would expect in a typical
Algebra 2 class.

Given the list I posted as a start (which I repeat below along with a few topics I omitted)...

Polynomial Arithmetic
Factoring and Simplification
Simultaneous Equations
Graphing
Probability
Conic Sections
Binomial Expansion
Logs and Exponents
Absolute Value and Radicals
Complex Numbers
Series
Composite Functions
Combinatorics

What would you limit this list to? This is almost identical to the Dolciani S&M book minus the trig.
