Scope and SequenceUnit 1 The introductory unit of this course provides are review of the crucial concepts of real numbers, properties, adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing, and algebraic expressions. Unit 2 This unit discusses the definition of a function, direct variation, slope-intercept, point-slope, piece-wise defined functions, and linear models. This unit also discusses transformations of functions, absolute value functions, including how to solve them graphically, by substitution, and elimination. Unit 3 Within this unit students will learn about zero and negative exponents, multiplying powers, more multiplication properties, division properties, and rational exponents. Students will also learn about exponential functions, exponential growth and decay, and geometric sequences. Unit 4 In this unit, students will learn about adding and subtracting polynomials, multiplying and factoring, multiplying binomials, special products, and how to factor a trinomial. Students will additionally learn about factoring by grouping, and special cases that may be encountered. Unit 5 This unit guides students through quadratic graphs, quadratic functions, quadratic equations, how to solve by factoring, and completing the square. The unit will also go through the quadratic formula, complex numbers, and systems of linear and quadratic equations. Unit 6 This unit discusses polynomial functions, the fundamental theorem of algebra, math modeling, graphing square root functions, and inverse functions. Unit 7 Students will gain the knowledge of experimental versus theoretical probability in this unit. Additionally, the concepts of probability distributions, permutations, combinations, and compound probabilities. Students will also gain the knowledge of probability models, conditional probability, and expected value. Unit 8 Students begin this unit by learning about measuring segments, the coordinate plane, inductive reasoning, conditional statements, and biconditionals, as well as deductive reasoning, and proofs.
Following this unit students are presented with the Mid-term Review and Exam.Unit 9 In this unit students will learn transversals, parallel lines, proving lines parallel, and the concepts of parallel and perpendicular.
