Geometry, Semester 1 – Accelerate
Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their knowledge of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions such that they are comfortable performing operations, solving, and graphing these functions.
Students will then deepen their understanding of quadratics with the introduction of complex numbers and the operations pertaining to them. Students will also learn to solve exponential functions using the properties of logarithms. The topics of sequences and series are addressed in this course as well as an introduction to trigonometric functions. Finally students will further their data analysis skills by investigating sampling, bias, and the normal distribution.
