Welcome to Algebra 1B.  This course is one trimester and the course is organized by week.  Below is a heading for each week where you can find the weekly agenda, vocabulary words, and a weekly video.  The agenda contains a list of classwork and homework assignments with due dates, as well as the dates of quizzes, projects, and unit tests. Please check the agenda each week to be sure you are keeping up with assignments.

Course to prepare juniors for the mathematics portion of the SAT test.

Geometry is the part of mathematics concerned with the size, shape, and relative position of figures and their properties in space. This part of the course will deal with basic geometric information, triangles, quadrilaterals, similarity, and transformations. 

This part of the course will deal with right triangles and trigonometry, circles and their properties, measurements in two-dimensional and three-dimensional space. The students will be involved in different strategies for learning the material: vocabulary building, individual work, group work, hands-on experiences, writing, and electronic work in the form on online practice, online simulations, discussion boards, online project creations and email. 

Introduction to Algebra is the foundation course for high school algebra, geometry and pre-calculus. Students will gain an introduction to algebra through an investigation of number systems and number sense, representations and relationships, functions and equations. They will have the opportunity to apply their developing knowledge and skills by completing several math-related projects. Intro to Algebra is a one trimester required course.

Applies Algebra 1 concepts in practical business and personal finance contexts. This course encourages students to be actively involved in applying mathematical ideas to their everyday live – credit, banking insurance, the stock market, independent living and more!

Pre-calculus is designed for students preparing to take college-level Calculus. The primary objectives are to: help students understand the fundamental concepts of algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry; foreshadow important ideas of calculus; and show how algebra and trigonometry can be used to model real-life problems. Twelve basic functions are emphasized throughout the course as a major theme and focus: identity, quadratic, cubic, reciprocals, square root, exponential, natural logarithm, sine, cosine, absolute value, greatest integer and logistic functions.

Students will study algebraic concepts through an investigation of data representation, algebraic equations, linear equations, direct variation, reasoning and measurement, and ratios and probability.  They will have the opportunity to apply their developing knowledge and skills to several small and extended math-related projects.
