Math 1

Course Description

The fundamental purpose of the High School Mathematics I course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. This course includes Common Core standards from the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Instructional time will focus on six critical areas: (1) extend understanding of numerical manipulation to algebraic manipulation; (2) synthesize understanding of function; (3) deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships; (4) apply linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend; (5) establish criteria for congruence based on rigid motions; and (6) apply the Pythagorean Theorem to the coordinate plane. Student engagement with course content will develop skills required for all 8 of the Common Core Standards of Math Practice.

Standards of Mathematical Practice

In connection to the High School Mathematics I course content, students will be able to:
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
