This course is designed to review and develop fundamental concepts of mathematics pertinent to the areas of: 1) arithmetic and algebra; 2) geometry and trigonometry; and 3) probability and statistics. Special emphasis is placed on problem solving, critical thinking and logical reasoning, making connections, and using calculators. Topics include performing arithmetic operations and simplifying algebraic expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable, solving proportions and incorporating percent applications, manipulating formulas, solving and graphing systems of linear equations and inequalities in two variables, finding areas and volumes of geometric figures, applying similar and congruent triangles, converting measurements within and between U.S. and metric systems, applying Pythagorean Theorem, solving right and oblique triangles, calculating probabilities, organizing data and interpreting charts, calculating central and spread measures, and summarizing and analyzing data.

20% of your grade is based on the 140 learning objectives/homework you do.

20% of your grade is based on the Scenarios/Quizzes you do.

10% of your grade is based on the reviews.

50% of your grade is based on the unit tests.

Grading Policy for Cornell HS:

We will use the regular grading scale for high school credit.

1. Simplify algebraic expressions

2. Solve equations and inequalities

3. Solve percent applications

4. Graph equations and inequalities in two variables

5. Apply geometric concepts

6. Use measurement concepts (both US Customary and metric) to solve problems

7. Apply trigonometric concepts to solve problems

8. Summarize data

9. Solve problems involving probabilities

Core abilities describe for learners the broadest outcomes, skills, or purposes that they will learn. They describe outcomes that are addressed throughout the course and identify integrated, transferable skills that go beyond the context of a single course. They encourage learners to perform at higher levels. Students will develop these core abilities:

*Communicate effectively—during class, you are given opportunity to explain concepts to your classmates..

* Think critically—Solving applications situations involves critical thought.

* Behave ethically—Students may not cheat in this class.

* Cultivate global awareness—We learn to use the metric system.

* Use mathematics—Obvious in a math class..

* Science and technology—The calculator is a piece of technology..

* Demonstrate social interaction—When we study for the unit tests, we work in groups.

* Value environmental stewardship—We print minimal worksheets for this class. Students also have opportunity to buy an e-book which also preserves resources.

Units are titled to reflect content of competencies it groups or clusters. The groups are represented in the unit tests. The units approximate the schedule below.

Unit 1—Mathematical Operations

Unit 2—Algebra

Unit 3—Geometry and Measurement

Unit 4—Trigonometry

Unit 5—Probability and Statistics

Scenarios this class has no final exam and so major assessments take place with scenarios. Students will complete some of the following scenarios:

Logic

Interest Applications

Excel to solve Algebra

Solve Systems in Excel and on the calculator

Graphing Functions.

Conversions

Measurement

BMI and Your Health

Gravity Applications

Statistics and Graphs
