Welcome to Mrs. Kosiorek's Math Page!
Algebra I: This 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 boxand 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 EndofCourse
(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 EndofCourse (EOC) test. Passing this test will earn students a verified credit in math for high school graduation. Course Topics:
