Pre-Algebra provides a solid foundation in order to fully prepare students for Algebra I. Chapters 1-3 focus on integers, rational numbers and real numbers in order to set the stage for equations, inequalities and functions. Real-World applications to the more abstract algebraic concepts are found throughout the text. Students will use calculators, software, websites and manipulatives to apply concepts and solve problems. Students who successfully complete the course will enter Algebra I.
Integrated Mathematics III : Special Topics – This course is intended for 12th graders who may not feel prepared to move forward with their next sequential math course in our regular math sequence as supported by the recommendation of their 11th grade math teacher. It is intended to provide students with an additional opportunity to master topics from Algebra, Geometry, Probability and Statistics, and Trigonometry. A student who has passed Algebra 2 with a 3.0 or higher will NOT be permitted to enroll in this course.
Students will be exposed to a strong foundation in Algebra II aligned with the Common Core Standards. Topics include functions, systems of equations, quadratic functions, polynomials, radicals and rational exponents, exponential and logarithmic functions, rational functions, sequences and series, and probability and statistics. Some coursework will require the use of a TI-83 graphing calculator.
Students will be exposed to a strong foundation in Precalculus aligned with the Common Core Standards. Topics to be studied include functions and graphs, polynomial, power and rational functions, exponential, logistic and logarithmic functions, an extensive study of trigonometry, and discrete mathematics.
