Download and complete the first assignment for an emergency closing of the high school. Bring your completed assignment to school when it reopens. If the high school has a second emergency closing day, do the second assignment, etc.
This class is the first in the sequence of college preparatory math courses. Algebra I is the most useful course for a college bound student as it teaches the student various approaches to problem solving. Topics include: simplifying algebraic expressions by combining like terms and doing distributives, solving linear equations in 1 and 2 variables, graphing linear and non linear equations, solving systems of linear equations, solving linear and non linear inequalities, simplifying exponents using scientific notation and laws of exponents, performing operations on polynomials, factoring polynomials of degree 2 and 3, solving quadratic equations using the quadratic formula.
Algebra 2 is a college preparatory mathematics course. The teacher will use analytical, graphical, and numerical approaches. Use of graphing calculators is interwoven throughout the course. Topics covered include: Operations on Numbers and Expressions, Equations and Inequalities, Polynomials and Rational Functions, Exponential Functions, Function Operations and Inverses, Matrices,and Logarithmic Functions.
This course is designed to assist seniors with the Special Review Assessment (SRA) and to help them prepare for the spring administration of the HSPA. Only students who have not yet passed the math section of the HSPA are enrolled.
