This course is a blend of what used to be algebra 1 and geometry. We will be writing, manipulating, & solving quadratic equations at the high point of our algebra portion. The geometry units will be filled with triangles, circles, proofs, and all of the other great components of the former high school geometry course.
The majority of our homework will be assigned, completed, reviewed, etc. online using the aleks system. Aleks is an AI (artificial intelligence) program that is designed to learn all about your math abilities & needs as you use it. You can access aleks from home using your internet connection, on a smart phone or tablet, as well as the many computer stations & chrome carts around campus. Don't forget that almost every homeroom has a set of 4 computers for student use, as well as the library computers. If all else fails, you are welcome to use a chrome book from my room during non-class times.
