### Mathematics Course Descriptions:#### Pre-AlgebraThis course allows those students, who are not yet ready for algebra, to be given the chance to study the topics that they need to master. The curriculum is individualized based on the results of our NWEA testing and each students’ understanding of mathematics. #### Algebra ½This course is designed to ease students through Algebra 1. Our goal is to complete ½ of the Algebra 1 course over the entire school year. Thus, we take it slow to gain a deep understanding of number systems, their properties, and constants of variation. #### Algebra 1This course takes students through equations, inequalities and functions. We begin our journey with constants of variation, discussing topics such as how a cell phone bill relates to the number of minutes that are used. Then we move into quadratics and exponential variation. |
