Algebra I is the study of various number sets. The basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are applied to the sets of integers, rational and real numbers. Variables, exponents, and linear equations are treated in the context of developing problem solving skills. Algebra I provides a solid foundation for the Algebra II course.
Algebra II will help students develop new concepts based on their previous experience in Algebra I. This course will cover first degree equations to quadratic functions including polynomials and factoring, rational expressions, real exponents, systems of sentences, quadratic equations, verbal problems and graphing.
Geometry is the mathematics of measurement and the study of the arrangement of points and figured in space. This course will use basic algebraic concepts to solve problems involving lines, segments, angles, polygons and circles. The solving of geometric proofs through the use of theorems, postulates, corollaries and definitions enables students to develop and strengthen deductive reasoning skills.
Trigonometry is an extension of Algebra with the inclusion of a unique set of definitions. This course deals with triangles and emphasizes the functions of angles, radian measure, polar coordinates, identities and various applications including navigation, displacement, surveying, construction and forces.
