This course is designed to accelerate students through Geometry and Algebra 2 during the same school year. 9th and 10th grade students are concurrently enrolled in both courses with an effort to streamline homework assignments and tests. Students will receive honors designation and will receive a bump in their local GPA computation.
Topics covered in Honors Geometry include transformations, angle relationships, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, probability, triangle congruence, proofs, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, solids, compass constructions, conics.
Topics covered in Honors Algebra 2 include functions, transformations of parent graphs, equivalency in expressions and equations, solving graphically and algebraically, inverses, logarithms, 3D graphing, trigonometric functions, graphing polynomials, normal distribution, series, statistical variability, and analytic trig.
This course will also focus on utilizing the graphing calculator and using multiple representations to make connections. » read more...
