Students will deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships by applying linear models to data that exhibit trends and use properties and theorems involving congruent figures to extend geometric knowledge. Students will integrate algebraic and geometric concepts studies.
Algebra I focuses on expressions, equations, functions, and rational numbers. Solving, graphing, and analyzing linear equations and inequalities, operations with polynomials, factoring, quadratic equations, radical expressions, and the quadratic formula are studied. Fundamental statistics with a linear focus is also included.
Geometry is the application of algebraic concepts in terms of geometric figures. Material includes extensive study of the triangle, parallel lines, formal proofs, the Pythagorean Theorem, quadrilaterals and other polygons, circles, two and three dimensional relationships, introduction to trigonometry, proportions, area, volume, and applications of mathematical formulas.
