Welcome to the Mathematics Department.ECHS math teachers use graphing calculators and computers in some courses to help students learn concepts and to make connections. The teachers also prepare students for success on standardized tests (SATs, ACTs, and EOC assessments) and assist students in their mastery of mathematical equations and formulas. Mathematics Courses:Algebra AAlgebra A and B in sequence provide the equivalent of Algebra I over two years. It covers content from numbers and operations to probability and statistics. Problem solving strategies are embedded throughout the courses. Prerequisite: Pre-Algebra Credit: 1 Unit Semesters: 2 Algebra BAlgebra A and B in sequence provide the equivalent of Algebra I over two years. It covers content from numbers and operations to probability and statistics. Problem solving strategies are embedded throughout the courses. Prerequisite: Algebra A Credit: 1 Unit Semesters: 2 Algebra IThis course is necessary for many career options. It is a must for any student planning on attending college. The topics covered are the study of the real number system, solving and graphing linear equations, polynomials and rational expressions, irrational and rational numbers and quadratic equations. This subject required daily homework and notebook. A student must have a calculator. Prerequisite: Recommendation by the teacher. Credit: 1 Unit Semesters: 2 Algebra IIThis class will stress algebra concepts to conform with NCTM standards sets by changing entrance exam requirements such as the ACT, SAT, or college placement tests. The class will rely heavily on the appropriate use of graphing calculators and scientific calculators. Topics covered include: modeling of real-life situations, variations, linear relations and system, matrices, and the study of transformations, quadratic equations, powers and roots, trigonometry, polynomials, rational and complex numbers and other traditional topics. Prerequisite: Algebra I Credit: 1 Unit Semesters: 2 GeometryStudents will study a traditional approach to geometry. Topics include the study of deductive reasoning, angles, lines, reflection, polygons, transformations, congruent triangles, similarity, circles, and a review of algebra skills, trigonometry, probability, and analytical topics. The topics will include a substantial amount of algebra material. Students will have daily homework, must keep a notebook, scientific or graphic calculators will be provided in class. Some of the lessons will be aided by protractor, and a compass, and classroom computer. Prerequisite: Algebra I Credit: 1 Unit Semesters: 2 |
