Secondary Math I Mr. Tyler Rydalch The fundamental purpose of this class, generally taken by 9th grade students, is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting them with exponential relationships, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Students use properties and theorems involving congruent figures to continue geometric knowledge from prior grades and ties geometric and algebraic concepts together. 9th Grade 1, 2, 3, 4 Math
Secondary Math II Mr. Tyler Rydalch he focus of this class, generally taken by 10th grade students, is on quadratic expressions, equations, and functions. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability and counting methods, including their use in making and evaluating decisions. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. Circles, with their quadratic algebraic representations, round out the course. 10th Grade 1, 2, 3, 4 Math
Secondary Math III Mr. Tyler Rydalch The focus of this class, generally taken by 11th grade students, is to synthesize and apply the accumulation of learning that they have from their previous courses, with content grouped into four critical areas. They apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data, expand their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. They continue their study of right triangle trigonometry to include general triangles. And, finally, students bring together all of their experience with functions and geometry to create models and solve contextual problems. 11th Grade 1, 2, 3, 4 Math
