Curriculum for the Digital Generation
HIGH SCHOOL : MATHEMATICS
Utilizing an innovative math curriculum, students master concepts in subject areas such as Algebra, Geometry, and Advanced Math. This interactive format is challenging, yet engaging, and exceeds the most demanding academic expectations.
Algebra 1A helps students build a strong foundation of traditional algebra concepts. Students will delve deep into algebraic problems and apply their knowledge to real-life situations.
Algebra 1B extends students’ algebraic skills and knowledge to five new types of functions: quadratic, exponential, absolute-value, piecewise, and step.
The content in each lesson of Geometry A is interwoven, in a story-telling style, with the adventures of Geomethor, a superhero who strives to save his world using Geometry.
In addition, students are introduced to trigonometry through its connection to the concept of similarity. Finally, students will explore three-dimensional figures such as planar solids and solids of revolution. Students can apply the basic understanding of geometric figures that they achieved in middle school mathematics to a more formal, rigorous proof system. Students also incorporate algebraic concepts into the same formal proof methodology. In doing so, students can better prepare themselves for the complexity of Algebra 2 and have a basis for understanding the concepts of calculus and advanced mathematics.
In this course, students will use the Pythagorean theorem, distance formula, midpoint formula and slope formula to solve geometric problems and develop coordinate proofs.
From construction to physics, the concepts in this Algebra 2 course are used in a variety of real-world situations.
Algebra 2B completes the studies of high school algebra.
