2012-2013 Class Schedule 1st Hour: Geometry 2nd Hour: Geometry 3rd Hour: AP/Remedial Math 4th Hour: Pre-Algebra 5th Hour: Algebra II 6th Hour: Geometry 7th Hour: Algebra II 8th Hour: College Algebra Pre-Algebra Course Description: In this course, topics will be presented using the incremental development and continual review approach. Pre-Algebra students will practice basic math skills and problem solving and develop higher-order thinking skills. Grade Level: 9 Syllabus: Pre-Algebra Syllabus 12-13.docx Geometry Course Description: Grade level: 9, 10, 11, 12. Full year course. Prerequisite: Algebra I. In this course, students will study properties of plane and solid figures. Emphasis will be upon obtaining information about geometric figures, developing logical thinking by means of proof, thinking in three-dimensional terms and developing an appreciation of the applications of geometry in the modern world. Assessment review topics will be stressed. Grade level: 9, 10, 11, 12. Full year course. Prerequisite: Algebra I. Supplies: Scientific calculator, 3-ring binder, spiral notebook or notebook paper, tab dividers, pencils, red pen. Students need to have access to a protractor, compass, and ruler for work being completed at home. Syllabus: Geometry Syllabus 12-13.docx Algebra II Course Description: Algebra II is an extension of Algebra I with variables, algebraic expressions, equations, functions, inequalities, and their graphical representation. The course introduces the students to exponential functions and logarithms, trigonometric functions and complex numbers, identities, and matrices and determinants. The students develop the ability to explore and solve mathematical problems, think critically, work cooperatively with others, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly. Grade Level: 10, 11, 12 Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry Supplies: Scientific calculator, spiral notebook or notebook paper, pencils, erasers, red pen Syllabus: Algebra II Syllabus 12-13.docx College Algebra: Course Description: The course is an introduction of algebraic functions and some transcendental functions with application in business and life, natural, and social sciences. Topics include equations, inequalities, mathematical models, functions and graphs, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of equations and inequalities, matrices, determinants, and conic sections. Grade Level: 11, 12 Prerequisites: Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, a 2.75 GPA, and passing scores on the CCCC test or ACT score of 21+ in Math. Supplies: Graphing calculator (TI-83, TI83Plus, TI-84, TI-84Plus), 3-ring binder, notebook paper, pencils, red pen Syllabus: College Algebra Syllabus 12-13.docx Spring 2005 Final.pdf |
