Integrated Math 1 A  Semester 1 (Credit: 0.50)In Integrated Math 1, students use arithmetic properties of subsets of integers and rational, irrational and real numbers by simplifying expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities, graphing equations, finding the equation of a line, working with monomials and polynomials, and factoring and completing the square. Students use properties of the number system to judge the validity of results, justifying each step of the procedure to prove or disprove statements. Students compute perimeter, circumference, are, volume and surface area of geometric figures. Students also use basic trigonometric functions defined by the angles of a right triangle.

Math Essentials A (Credit: 0.50)Students begin the first semester of this course with a review of how to use basic arithmetic operations with whole numbers, integers, fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals. More complex concepts are built on these basics. Students revisit simplifying order of operation problems. They will also learn how to apply the properties of addition and multiplication, as well as the distributive property, to equation solving. This semester ends with a review of solving inequalities in one and twosteps.
Math Essentials B (Credit: 0.50)In the second semester of the Math Essentials online course, students apply all of their first semester knowledge to a variety of relevant topics. They learn the relationship among ratios, rates, and proportions, and solve daily problems using proportional reasoning. Students also look at the connection between fractions, decimal numbers, and percentages. They solve problems related to tipping, commissions, interest, and percentage increase or decrease. Next students revisit their coordinate plane and linear function knowledge, expanding their horizons by applying these concepts to other function families. The course then moves to everyday geometric concepts such as perimeter, area, and volume. Students end their year of study with a critical look at scatterplots in the realworld.
PreAlgebra A  Semester 1 (Credit: 0.50)PreAlgebra A will help students move from the world of simple mathematics to the exciting world of Algebra and Geometry. They will develop skills that will be necessary throughout their life. Students will stretch their thinking by learning to solve real world problems.Learning math and algebra concepts can be fun. Abstract ideas can be challenging for many students but the challenge is one they can meet. Concepts are presented with a little humor, making the learning fun. Students will enjoy learning each new concept and develop a deeper understanding of the math skills they already have. Each concept is presented using examples of the skills, concepts, and strategies students will need. Scaffolding of ideas is provided to ensure student learning. The course is offered in a sixunit format containing 5 lessons each for a total of 30 lessons.
Major Concepts:
