This course will emphasize the use of linear, quadratic, and exponential functions and their related transformations, equations, and associated solutions. Students will connect functions and their associated solutions in both mathematical and real-world situations. Students will use technology, specifically the graphic calculator, to collect and explore data and analyze statistical relationships. In addition, students will study polynomials of degree one and two, radical expressions, sequences, and laws of exponents. Students will generate and solve linear systems with two equation and two variables and will create new functions through transformations.
This course will build on the knowledge and skills for mathematics and will begin to focus on more precise terminology, symbolic representations, and the development of proofs. Students will explore concepts covering coordinate and transformational geometry; logical argument and constructions; proof and congruence; similarity, proof, and trigonometry; two- and three-dimensional figures; circles; and probability. Students will connect previous knowledge from Algebra I to Geometry through the coordinate and transformational geometry strand. Students will use technology, specifically the graphing calculator, to collect and explore data.
This course is taught with a functional approach giving students a sound foundation for either technical or non-technical degrees in college. Students will broaden their knowledge of quadratic functions, exponential functions, and systems of equations. Students will study polynomials, logarithmic, square root, cubic, cube root, absolute value, rational functions, and their related equations. Students will connect functions to their inverses and associated equations and solutions in both mathematical and real-world situations. In addition, students will extend their knowledge of data analysis and numeric and algebraic methods.
This course is the preparation for calculus. Students will approach topics from a function point of view, where appropriate, and will strengthen and enhance their conceptual understanding and mathematical reasoning when modeling and solving mathematical and real-world problems. Students systematically work with functions and their multiple representations. The study of Precalculus deepens students' mathematical understanding and fluency with algebra and trigonometry and intends their ability to make connections and pally concepts and procedures at higher levels. Students investigate and explore mathematical ideas, develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations, and use technology, specifically the graphing calculator, to build understanding, make connections between representations, and provide support in solving problems.
This course is the most advanced math course offered at the Einstein School. Calculus is taken by students preparing for the rigors of college mathematics. This course intends to give students a solid foundation of the fundamentals of Calculus. Topics are covered in-depth and a comprehensive selection of problems and problem types is encountered.
This course provides a path for students to succeed in Algebra II and prepares them for various post-secondary choices. Students learn to apply mathematics through experiences in personal finance, science, engineering, fine arts, and social sciences. Students use algebraic, graphical, and geometric reasoning to recognize patterns and structure, model information, solve problems, and communicate solutions. Students will select from tools such as physical objects; manipulatives; technology, including graphing calculators, data collection devices, and computers; and paper and pencil and from methods such as algebraic techniques, geometric reasoning, patterns, and mental math to solve problems.
This course introduces students to advanced ideas in preparations for post-secondary mathematics. In College Algebra, students will study applications of Polynomial, rational, radical, absolute-value, piecewise defined, exponential and logarithmic functions, equations, inequities, graphing skills and systems of equations using matrices.
