Prerequisite: 12-Year-Old Mathematics course with/Algebra Readiness Assessment or Foundations of Algebra-13
Course Description: The course focuses predominantly on linear, piecewise, exponential and quadratic functions. Polynomials and factoring are also explored in great detail. There is a strong emphasis on real-life problem solving and mathematical modeling, with the goal of developing an understanding of the relationship between data, graphs, and equations. The emphasis is not only on mathematical procedure but on understanding, as well. Students will learn to communicate mathematically and be able to justify the processes they use and the conclusions they reach.
