Learning Recommendations: Incoming 9th graders: "B-" or higher average in CC8/Algebra 1. Current high school students: "C-" or higher in MTH100 - CC Algebra 1 or passed End-of-Course Exit Exam in Algebra AND earned a "D" or higher in CC Algebra 1. Students who have struggled in math previously are strongly encouraged to enroll concurrently in MTH204 - CC Geometry 1 Lab.
General Description: This course is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout this course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
Content: Critical areas include, but are not limited to:
- Congruence and constructions
- Similarity and trigonometry
- Three-dimensional problem solving
- Proof and modeling
- Coordinate geometry
- Applications of probability
Strategies: Students will learn through a combination of:
- Collaborative instructional approach
- Direct instruction
- Technology enhanced instruction
Equipment to be provided by Student: Ruler, compass, protractor, and scientific calculator. If you need to purchase a scientific calculator, the TI-30XIIS is recommended. For families considering investing in a graphing calculator, the TI-Nspire (not CAS) is recommended. A graphing calculator is NOT required until CC Algebra 2 and above.
