The WUHS Mathematics Department strives to provide rich mathematical learning experiences, and the skills that support them, to a wide variety of students. All courses of study integrate technology with pencil-and-paper calculations so that students at every level can become proficient problem solvers. We view the study of algebraic concepts as the critical tool for secondary mathematics, thus algebra is included in all introductory courses.


Grades 9-12                                            Level III

This course is designed to introduce students to the concepts and terminology of algebra. The course approach combines lecture, large and small group work, projects, individual work, and appropriate use of technology. The course will cover the relationship of real numbers, problem-solving, graphing on the Cartesian plane, solving equations in one or two variables, the study of radicals and exponents, simplifying polynomials, solving equations using factoring and the quadratic formula, and the study of sets. Students who succeed in this course are prepared for Geometry.
