An overview of the modules being taught this year can be found below.
Honors Algebra I is a course that places an emphasis on the systematic development of the language through which most of mathematics is communicated. Students develop an understanding of concepts at an abstract level and apply them in a process that fosters generalizations and insights beyond the original content. Areas of focus include properties of the number system, linear and quadratic functions, inequalities, operations on real numbers and polynomials, exponents and radicals. This is a high school equivalent course. The grade is reflected in the high school transcript and calculated in a student’s high school GPA.
