Grades: 9-11      Required      Year Long       Credit: 1

Algebra I

This course is designed to give students a firm foundation in geometric concepts in order to ensure success in future mathematics courses.

This course is a balance of theory and application. Students will explore formal proof, deductive and inductive reasoning as well as indirect proofs. Spatial geometry concepts are included with plane geometry. Algebraic skills are reinforced and strengthened through problem solving. The course includes topics on points, lines, planes, parallel lines, congruent triangles, circles, areas of plane figures, areas and volumes of solids, and basic trigonometry.

Grades will be assigned based on daily activities, homework, notebook, projects, quizzes, and tests. The final exam will be worth 10% of the student’s grade.
