Algebra III (Period 4)

Course Description

This course is an in-depth study and application of polynomial, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions, and systems of equations using matrices. Additional topics such as sequences, series, probability, and conics may be included.
All pre-AP classes have in common these four shared principles: close observation, evidence-based writing, higher-order questioning, and academic conversation. Pre-AP learning emphasizes focused content, horizontal and vertical alignment, and targeted assessments and feedback. If we could express Pre-AP Algebra II as a single word, it would be “functions.” Specifically, we will look at the best ways to apply various functions (linear, quadratic, exponential, etc.) and connecting multiple representations. Students will not just be able to solve problems, but they will be able to discuss ideas and walk away with “enduring understandings” that will prepare them for math in their college classes or careers. We will be following the College Board framework and TEKS. Let me know if you would like more detailed information.
