Prerequisite: Algebra 2/Geometry recommended and results of the post secondary education common placement test (PERT).
Type of Credit: Math
The purpose of this course is to enhance and continue the study of mathematics after Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry and to prepare students for college-level studies. The content will include graphing linear functions, quadratic functions, absolute value functions, radical functions and rational functions. Students will also be expected to solve equations containing these types of functions as well as performing operations on expressions and simplifying. Other topics will include inequalities, factoring polynomials, applied problems, and systems of equations Students will participate in assessment for college readiness. Calculators and computers will serve as instructional tools in concept development.
