We won't have time to go completely over the following ideas together, but they are well worth your time and effort to review this summer.
If you want to look at some of the material I use in my Algebra classes, I've linked to the homework pages from Algebra 1B. I suggest looking for assignments that have handouts instead of book work. Not only are they usually much more interesting, you also won't need a book to do them :)

Solving Equations
You will be expected to solve equations both algebraically and graphically in Algebra 2. If you don't have one, I suggest purchasing a graphing calculator this summer. If your teacher doesn't give you any recommendations, mine are here.

Recognizing Families of Functions
Coming out of an Algebra 1 course, you should be able to differentiate between the following families of functions based on:
1) rate of change (table), 2) shape (graph), and 3) structure of the expression (equation).

Systems of Equations and Inequalities
Equations (specifically the "Gender Gap" lesson)

Transformations of Functions
We did this with the Cosine Ferris Wheel. Here is a similar idea but with quadratic functions:
