Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
Course Descriptions (Warren Hills Program of Studies)
301 Algebra I
This course is designed to meet the New Jersey Graduation Requirement that all students must take a full year of Algebra. This course aligns with the Common Core State Standards and topics to be studied include Number Operations; Properties; Linear Equations and Inequalities; Powers and Exponents; Quadratic Equations; Polynomials; Proportions; Rational Expressions. Emphasis will be placed on problem solving strategies and mathematical practices. A student with a final grade of a 93 or better will be recommended for CP Geometry.
303 CP Algebra I
CP Algebra I involves the study of the real number system and its properties. It bridges the gap between the concrete ideas of arithmetic and the abstract ideas of higher mathematics. CP Algebra I includes study of equations and inequalities, operations with real numbers, algebraic expressions, functions and relations, quadratic equations, and irrational expressions. Problem solving and mathematical practices will be incorporated throughout the course, which aligns with the Common Core State Standards. Graphing calculators will be used.
305 CP Algebra II
This course is frequently required for college entrance and is essential for further work in mathematics and science. CP Algebra II is the study of the real and complex number systems. It is an extension of CP Algebra I consisting of more advanced and more abstract material. It expands the student’s understanding of the power of mathematics providing sophisticated mathematical models for studying and solving difficult problems.
The textbook is a great resource! It supplements all the notes and activities that we do in the classroom. I will also be posting notes, activities, and other important information on this website. Feel free to check back frequently!
I am available for extra help most days during lunch and by appointment only after school. In order to come see me during lunch you need a pass so please let me know in advance. Keep in mind that I am not available after school on days that we have a department or faculty meeting. Please do not hesitate to ask for help!
