In this self-paced math class, you study independently from a textbook, computer program and/or worksheet, using a syllabus as a guide to the sections and exercises that are included in the course.
We will be using KHAN ACADEMY.
Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. It tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. The math missions guide learners using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. It is also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.
Core Connections Algebra is the first course of college preparatory mathematics. Core Connections Algebra aims to deepen and extend student understanding built in previous courses by focusing on developing fluency with solving linear equations and inequalities and systems; extending these skills to solving quadratic and exponential functions; exploring functions, including sequences, graphically, numerically, symbolically and verbally; and using regression techniques to analyze the fit of models to distributions of data.
On a daily basis, students in Core Connections Algebra use problem solving strategies, questioning, investigating, analyzing critically, gathering and constructing evidence, and communicating rigorous arguments justifying their thinking. Students learn in collaboration with others, sharing information, expertise, and ideas.
