In Algebra 1, students will write algebraic expressions, solve linear equations and simple linear systems, and graph relationships. They will solve quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, and graphically. They will learn about rate of change, inequalities, monomial and polynomial expressions, exponents, and functions. By the end of the course, students will understand the practical applications and real-world uses of algebra.

*Students may take this course in 7th or 8th grade for high school credit.

In Geometry 1, students will study a variety of topics, including geometric proofs and theorems, congruence, rotations and reflections, similarity, ratios, geometric properties of curves, and probability. Our math program takes a hands-on approach that gives students opportunities for kinetic learning, such as making their own geometric constructions using compasses and straightedge, to copy, reduce, and enlarge plane shapes, thus understanding similarity. They will also learn to write their own proofs and how to use geometric modeling.

In Algebra 2, students will study many types of functions, including absolute-value, quadratic, polynomial, radical, exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions. They will expand their understanding of numbers to imaginary and complex numbers, solve different types of equations and inequalities, and learn to prove basic trigonometric identities. They will describe sequences and calculate series, study conics with emphasis on circles and parabolas, and expand their understanding of data analysis and statistics, using normal distribution.
