WELCOME PARENTS AND STUDENTS
You have now entered Ms. Lisa Walters' website for the 2012 - 2013 school year. Together we will enjoy Algebra II, Math College Readiness and Pre-Calculus. Please print and review a copy of my CLASSROOM RULES AND GRADING POLICY .
I am looking forward to an extremely productive year full of WONDERFUL mathematical experiences. REMEMBER, you can keep abreast of your grades by accessing PINNACLE or VIRTUAL COUNSELOR. It is also required that you check in by the 5th of the month for the agenda...a VITAL tool for your class.
Here are some useful links:
KHAN ACADEMY as a tutoring tool for ALL classes.
Just for fun you can try either the WEB or PRINT version of SUDOKU!!!
Algebra II is an extension of Algebra I. Topics are added in the area of functions that expand the algebras to include conic sections and trigonometry, thus relating algebra to geometric concepts. Algebra II is generally preliminary to a course in analysis, analytical geometry and ideas of limits and the calculus. This course also ties together many of the ideas from arithmetic and geometry.
In order to satisfy the state graduation requirement, Algebra II should deal significantly with:
Math for College Readiness
This course is targeted for grade 12 students, whose test scores on the Post Secondary Educational Readiness Test (P.E.R.T.) are at or below the established cut scores for mathematics, indicating that they are not yet “college ready” in mathematics or simply need some additional instruction in content to prepare them for success in college level mathematics.
This course incorporates the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices as well as the following Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content: Expressions and Equations, The Number System, Functions, Algebra, Geometry, Number and Quantity, Statistics and Probability, and the Common Core Standards for High School Modeling. The standards align with the Mathematics Postsecondary Readiness Competencies deemed necessary for entry-level college courses.
This course is an extension of Algebra II with the emphasis in Trigonometry, Limits, and introductory Calculus topics. All major areas covered in Algebra II are reinforced at a greater depth with additional applications aided by the use of calculators and computers.
The course is designed to encompass all those topics necessary to be successful in a college calculus course.
In order to satisfy the state graduation requirements, Advanced Mathematics (Pre-Calculus) should deal significantly with:
