Mathematics I is an integrated math class that includes lessons in Algebra, Geometry, and Data Analysis. It is the first of three college preparatory high school courses, each building on students' ability to think mathematically and effectively work through math problems. Work in this course involves three components: classwork, homework, and building a Math portfolio. During the classes, that meet twice a week, we will work our way through the Math I curriculum, using the Pearson Common Core work text as a guide. Homework will be assigned each class period, providing students with practice of new material and its integration with concepts covered previously. Each class will begin by addressing any questions from homework. Each chapter will culminate with a chapter test and a portfolio challenge. The portfolio tasks will give students the opportunity to apply and document their understanding of the material at hand.
