Welcome to a new year of math! In this course, you will learn to use new models and methods to think about problems as well as solve them. You will be developing powerful mathematical tools and learning new ways of thinking about and investigating situations. You will be making connections, discovering relationships, figuring out what strategies can be used to solve problems, and explaining your thinking. Learning to think in these ways and communicate about your thinking is useful in mathematical contexts, other subjects in school, and situations outside the classroom. The mathematics you have learned in the past will be valuable for learning in this course. That work, and what you learn in this course, will prepare you for future courses.
Some of the major topics that we will be examining this year are Direct and Inverse Variation
Functions, Sequences, Exponential Functions, Families of Functions, Quadratics, Systems of Linear Equations, Inverses & Logarithms, and Polynomials.
We are looking forward to a great year. If you ever have questions, please do not hesitate to ask questions. See you in class!
