This course will provide preparation for Algebra II as well as the necessary review of previously learned topics in Algebra I and Geometry. Students will acquire a deeper understanding of mathematics, its purpose in the world, and the relationships that exist between each of the areas of mathematics. They will determine why we call numbers that have value imaginary. They will discover patterns and structures in algebraic expressions. And, they will delve into the world of trigonometry to discover new functions and new methods of representation. Following this course, students may continue their studies with our Algebra II CCSS course in order to take the CCSS exam. Students who have not passed the Geometry CCSS Regents examination prior to this course should also be enrolled in the core workshop course in preparation for retaking the Regents examination. THIS COURSE IS NOT APPROVED BY THE NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE.
