05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 06/08/2023

Course Description

This year-long course introduces the students to topics that explore higher mathematic principles and skills. The student will investigate and solve problems that use both real numbers and variables. The skills learned will be used to solve real-life problems to help students function better in the world around them. An emphasis will be placed on solving equations, including linear, quadratic, inequalities, multistep, and variations. Factoring and graphing will be used to solve a variety of equations and systems of equations. Also, skills related to exponents, statistics, and probability will be explored and related to practical application. Students will have access to engaging multimedia video lectures, notes pages for each lesson summarizing the video content, practice problems, and assessments. All video lessons include a transcript and closed captioning in English and Spanish.
