Students in Pre-Algebra address mathematical concepts by using numerical analysis. Students master the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percents. In addition, students learn to use first order equations and inequalities to solver real world problems.
Using complex first and second order equations and inequalities, Algebra I will teach students to expand their understanding of mathematical models to the coordinate plane and begin to understand functions.
In Geometry, students build an axiomatic system of definitions, postulates and theorems in order to write well-developed proofs of geometric ideas. They combine their knowledge of algebra and start to analyze geometric ideas analytically
Students further develop their algebraic skills by analyzing higher order functions. In addition to linear and quadratic functions, students study exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, rational and radical functions. Students begin to use the graphing calculator as a tool to solve real world problems graphically and algebraically.
Students study the use of trigonometric functions, as well as study conic sections to end their pre-calculus study. In the second semester, students begin the study of calculus by examining limits and derivatives.
Calculus application problems become more complex and students learn to use all the tools of mathematics incorporating numerical, algebraic and graphical analysis in their solutions. Students reach the pinnacle of their study as they master mathematical logic and proof.
