8th Grade Math and/or placement from New Student Orientation
The purpose of this course is to lay the concept and skill foundation for all high school and college math courses with a functions approach to algebra. Students will build on their ability to communicate with graphs and symbols and begin developing an understanding of the meaning and use of data models. They will explore ways to represent data relationships (data tables, graphs, equations, and verbal descriptions). Through reasoning and practice students will begin to develop fluency with all algebraic operations.
