Students learn to identify angle relationships, scale, proportion, triangle congruence, and similarity, how perpendicular and parallel relationships unify and extend earlier concepts, and how to apply new knowledge to applications in circles, polygons, and right triangles. Students learn how to compute the area of plane figures and apply trigonometric skills to problem-solving in their work with a variety of 2-D shapes. Students will apply principles of algebra with continued practice and reinforcement throughout the year while also demonstrating increasing flexibility with coordinate geometry, building a strong foundation for success in higher mathematics. Upon successful completion of the course for The Madeira student leads to placement in Alg II.
Prerequisite of Algebra l
In this online course students will review Algebra 1 topics.These topics will include: solving linear equations and inequalities, solving absolute value equations and inequalities, direct variation word problems, graphing linear functions, graphing absolute value equations, graphing piecewise functions, solving systems of linear equations.
Estimated weekly time commitment is four hours per week with published "office hours" and optional "real time" to connect with instructor. Delivery means are videos, handouts, etc.
Open to Madeira students recommended for Bridge to Algebra ll. For non-Madeira students, the class is applicable to students who want to review Algebra l concepts prior to Algebra ll and have successfully completed Algebra l and Geometry.
Upon successful completion of the course The Madeira student will be placed into Algebra ll. Madeira Student - 1 credit, letter grade, must take final exam on campus. Non-Madeira student - 0 credit, P/F grade, no final exam required.
