Algebra l: A course that uses problem situations, physical models, and appropriate technology to extend algebraic thinking and engage student reasoning. It includes the study of the concepts of functions, solving equations, slope as rates of change, and proportionality. Students will use physical models to represent, explore, and develop abstract concepts. The use of appropriate technology will help students apply mathematics in an increasingly technological world. Use of graphing calculators is required. Students are required to take the TN Ready Algebra l Assessment Test.
Core Math l: This course is the first of three courses in a series that uses a more integrated approach to cover the same algebra and geometry concepts and skills that are included in the traditional three course series. The problem situations, models, and technology used will foster connections among the various strands of mathematics and develop concepts from multiple perspectives. Course Code: 3132
