Course Information


Courses: Algebra I and Honors Geometry
Teacher: Bethany Kosiorek
School: J-WMS
Location: Room 222




Course Objective:

Algebra IThis course is designed to develop proficiency with Algebraic skills. Topics include equations, expressions, operations, matrices, relations, functions, linear equations, laws of exponents, polynomials, square roots, measures of central tendency, and box-and- whisker plots. Algebra topics involving real life applications will be presented. The Algebra I Standards require students to use algebra as a tool for representing and solving a variety of practical problems. Calculators and graphing utilities are used to assist in problem solving and verification. Graphing calculators will be available for classroom use. Students are encouraged to purchase a graphing calculator for use at home. Students completing this course will take the Algebra I End-of-Course (EOC) test. Passing this test and the course will earn students a verified credit in math for high school graduation.

 Honors Geometry: This course consists of the 2009 Virginia SOL Standards for Geometry which emphasize the traditional geometric topics of points, lines, planes, angles, polygons, circles, constructions, solid figures, perimeter, area, volume, similarity, congruence, symmetry, transformations, tessellations, inductive logic, and deductive logic.  Learning activities will often involve Algebra and emphasize real life problem solving.  Formal and informal proofs will be covered.   Calculators and graphing utilities are used to assist in problem solving and verification.  Graphing calculators will be available for classroom use.  Students are encouraged to purchase a graphing calculator for use at home.  An honors class will increase emphasis on deductive proofs, coordinate Geometry, and basic Trigonometry.  The scope will be extensive and the pace rapid.  Students completing this course will take the Geometry End-of-Course (EOC) test.  Passing this test will earn students a verified credit in math for high school graduation.
