# Mathematics

The free access to course content will end after June 30, 2021, with the exception of EdReady Math and EdReady English, which ends after July 31, 2020.

### Algebra 1A

This course is the first in a two-course sequence. In the course, students will learn about algebraic concepts such as integers, linear equations, inequalities and factoring. As students work through each interactive lesson, they will have the opportunity to complete several self-check activities and journal entries. Ultimately, this course will assist students in developing fundamental algebraic skills that will allow them to use problem-solving strategies in real-world situations as well as using graphing technology to interpret, represent and communicate mathematical concepts.

### Algebra 1B

This course is the second in a two-course sequence. In the course, students will learn about algebraic concepts such as integers, linear equations, inequalities and factoring. As students work through each interactive lesson, they will have the opportunity to complete several self-check activities and journal entries. Ultimately, this course will assist students in developing fundamental algebraic skills that will allow them to use problem-solving strategies in real-world situations as well as using graphing technology to interpret, represent and communicate mathematical concepts.

### Algebra 2A

This course is the first semester of a full year of Algebra 2. This CCSS-aligned course further develops students’ understanding of algebraic functions and their applications. A major theme is the generalization of concepts and techniques from Algebra 1 and Geometry. Polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational and trigonometric functions are studied, and basic properties of complex numbers are introduced. Algebra 2A is the first semester in a two-semester course. In this semester, students will cover functions and polynomials, equations and inequalities, factoring and quadratics, conic sections, and radical and complex numbers.

### Algebra 2B

This CCSS-aligned course further develops students’ understanding of algebraic functions and their applications. A major theme is the generalization of concepts and techniques from Algebra 1 and Geometry. Polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational and trigonometric functions are studied, and basic properties of complex numbers are introduced. Algebra 2B is the second semester in a two-semester course. In this semester, students will cover dividing and solving polynomials, rational expressions, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, and trigonometric functions, and probability and statistics.

EdReady Math permits students to self-assess for mastery of grade-level knowledge and skills and ensure their readiness for their next math course. EdReady uses diagnostic testing to establish personalized study paths in order to fill in learning gaps and to reinforce understanding.  Depending on the subject and grade level you select, you will be provided with one to six goal keys related to the concepts and skills aligned to the relevant content standards or assessment objectives. The online instructional model for each learning topic in EdReady Math follows a consistent structure of Warm Up, Presentation, Worked Examples, Topic Text, Practice, Review, and Test.  EdReady also utilizes a variety of topic-specific, media-rich resources, including an embedded glossary, NROC Developmental Math content, Khan Academy, and more. As students demonstrate mastery of each skill and learning topic in their study path, they see their goal score increase as evidence of progress toward their target score of 100.

EdReady is part of the non-profit NROC Project.

### Geometry A

This course addresses Common Core standards and is designed to cover Semester 1 of High School Geometry for students following the Traditional Pathway of Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II in that order. The course is generally taken during the second year of high school. Of the six Common Core units for High School Geometry, this course will cover Common Core Unit 1: Congruence, Proof, and Constructions and from Unit 2: Similarity, Proof and Trigonometry will cover Similarity and Proof.

### Geometry B

This course addresses Common Core standards and is designed to cover Semester 2 of High School Geometry for students following the Traditional Pathway of Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II in that order. The course is generally taken during the second year of high school. Of the six Common Core units for High School Geometry, this course will cover Common Core Unit 3: Extending to Three Dimensions, Unit 4: Connecting Algebra and Geometry through Coordinates, and Unit 5: Circles With and Without Coordinates. Application of geometric concepts in modeling situations will be presented throughout the course.

### Mathematics in the Workplace

This applied math skills course is designed to introduce students to the basic math skills required for employment in Michigan’s 6 Career Pathways. Students will refresh their basic math skills, such as quantity, money, time, measurement, proportions & percentages, and averages, and apply these skills to solve real-life, mathematical word problems. In addition, students will explore sample careers in each of the six Michigan Career Pathways and complete scenario-based, workplace problems. Students will also research required workplace math skills for careers they are interested in and present their findings to their classmates.

### Mathematics of Baseball

In this course, students will learn about the mathematics found in baseball using Google Sheets as well as other tools and software. Topics will include a study in statistics, analyzing measures of central tendency as well as two-way frequencies tables. Students will work as a scout, analyzing rates and speeds as found in the sport and as general managers, analyzing trends and making math-based decisions. Students will also work as team managers, looking at probabilities of independent events and trends in data. Finally, students will research the history of baseball, and complete a culminating final project.
