Students will develop reasoning and problem solving skills as they study topics such as congruence and similarity, and apply properties of lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles. Students will also develop problem solving skills by using length, perimeter, area circumference, surface area, and volume to solve real-world problems.
PRE: Completion of Algebra A & B with a grade of C- or better
In this course the student will learn some of the basic operations needed to transform and solve equations involving one or more unknown quantities. The study of geometry is included with a focus on the concepts of area and volume.
PRE: Completion of Algebra 1 with a grade of a C- or better
A study of more advanced algebraic concepts with an introduction to the fundamental trigonometric ratios. Geometric figures and their properties are introduced as are deductive reasoning and proof.
PRE: successful completion of 8th grade math
Algebra ½ is the first class of a two year Algebra 1 program. Students will explore the following topics: algebraic equations, expressions, and functions, rational numbers, linear equations, proportions, graphing relations, analyzing linear equations, and inequalities. A scientific calculator is recommended.
PRE: Completion of Algebra A
This is the second part of the two year Algebra 1 program. Students will begin with a review of concepts from the previous class. New explorations include: statistics, probability, systems of linear equations, graphic solutions, multiplication, division, and factoring of polynomial expressions, Pythagorean Thermos, and operations with rational expressions and equations.
PRE CALCULUS-INDEPENDENT STUDY (Honors Class)
PRE: consent with Instructor
Students who wish to pursue degrees in the sciences or engineering may want to consider completing Algebra II and Geometry in their junior year so they would be able to take calculus in their senior year. Taking calculus will provide students with an advantage on the ACT and SAT tests and on college mathematics placement exams.
