Learning Recommendations: "B-" or better on assessments in BOTH MT200A/B - Common Core Geometry and MT100A/B - Common Core Algebra 1. This course is designed for students planning to take Pre-Calculus and higher level math courses (AP/IB). Students learn the Washington State Algebra 2 math standards in a fast-paced learning environment. Students should have strong foundational skills in Algebra 1. This course meets the Algebra 2 requirement for four-year college admission.
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:
- Polynomial, rational, & radical functions
- Trigonometric functions
- Linear, absolute value, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic models
- Data inferences and conclusions
Strategies: Students will learn through a combination of:
- Collaborative instructional approach
- Direct instruction
- Technology enhanced instruction
Equipment to be provided by Student: Scientific and graphing calculators are required. If you need to purchase a scientific calculator, the TI-30XIIS is recommended. A TI-brand graphing calculator (not CAS) is the recommended graphing calculator and is used in classroom instruction.
The Washington State Technology Standards addressed in this course include:
