Course Description (Math)
This course will emphasize the study of representations of linear and non-linear functions. It includes mathematical concepts for working with rational numbers, various expressions, analyzing and solving linear equations & inequalities, polynomials, probability, statistics, and data analysis. Students will use hands-on materials and calculators when needed in solving problems where the algebra concepts are applied.
This course is designed to emphasize the study of the properties and applications of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions. It includes the study of transformations and right triangle trigonometry. Inductive and deductive thinking skills are used in problem solving situations, and applications to the real world are stressed. It also emphasizes writing proofs to solve properties of geometric figures.
This course is designed to build on algebraic and geometric concepts. It advances algebra skills such as systems of equations, advanced polynomials, imaginary and complex numbers, quadratics, and concepts, matrices and their properties, and includes the study of trigonometric functions.
This course is designed to cover topics ranging from polynomial, rational, exponential functions to conic sections, and Law of Sines and Cosines will be introduced. Students will then begin analytic geometry and calculus concepts such as limits, derivatives, and integrals.
Statistics will introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. Students will learn to explore data, sample and experiment, anticipate patterns, and statistical interference. Students will use these skills to describe patterns and variances of patterns, learn how to plan and conduct studies, use probability and simulations to explore random phenomena, test hypotheses, and estimate population parameters.
