A year long 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 lI Assessment Test.
An introduction to concepts of planes and spatial geometry and measurements, angle relationships, points, lines, circles and solids, writing formal proofs and constructing geometric figures, emphasizing inductive and deductive reasoning, and clarity and precision of language. Students are required to take the TN Ready Geometry Assessment Test.
