Grade Level 9 - 12

**Unit 1.0 (two terms)**

Prerequisite: Placement by Department

Prerequisite: Placement by Department

**Materials: TI-83 or TI 84, any version Graphing Calculator**

The content of Algebra 1 is organized around families of functions, with special emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. Students will learn to represent functions through verbal descriptions, equations, tables, and graphs. In addition to the algebra content, lessons on probability and data analysis as well as numerous examples and exercises involving geometry are included. These math topics often appear on standardized test so familiarity with them is important.

__GEOMETRY__

Grade Level 9 - 12

**Unit 1.0 (two terms)**

Prerequisite: Algebra I or Placement

Prerequisite: Algebra I or Placement

**Materials: TI-83 or TI 84, any version Graphing Calculator**

This is the traditional sophomore mathematics course. It satisfies the minimum mathematics requirements for many colleges. The use of logic reasoning is stressed which helps the students in non-mathematical situations. Geometric forms, shapes, patterns and relationships provide the background for this course. Algebraic methods are used as they apply to a situation.

__ALGEBRA II__

Grade Level 9 - 12

Grade Level 9 - 12

**Unit 1.0 (two terms)**

Prerequisite: Geometry or Placement by the Department

Prerequisite: Geometry or Placement by the Department

**Materials: TI-83 or TI 84, any version Graphing Calculator**

The content of this course gives students a strong background in mathematical reasoning and problem solving that will be important in the future. The book emphasizes using functions, equations, and graphs to model problem situations. It also investigates the connection to algebra, geometry, statistics probability and discrete math. There will be opportunities to participate in the exploration of mathematical concepts, cooperative learning activities, and small group discussion.
