Full year~This course focuses on extending mathematical topics and problem-solving techniques learning in algebra I, geometry, and algebra II. Real-life application gives students opportunities to apply their mathematical skills. Advanced topics studied include: a wide range of functions, including linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic, as well as modeling and analyzing statistical data, applying probability models, transforming graphs of data, and trigonometry. Completion of daily homework and participation is expected. The use of a TI-84 graphing calculator is encouraged as it will be used on a daily basis for class work and homework.
