BSICSKL 028CE Basic Skills Pre-Algebra
This is a preparatory course for students who want to attain a readiness for Basic Skills Algebra 1. It is designed to help students develop mathematical, organizational and study skills necessary to succeed in Basic Skills Algebra 1.
BSICSKL 029CE Basic Skills Algebra 1
This course is designed to help students understand variable and symbol manipulation and the relationships between them. Topics include: algebraic concepts and methods involving quantities with expressions, equations, inequalities, and matrices; tables and graphs as tools to interpret expressions, equations, and inequalities; operating on expressions and matrices and solving equations and inequalities; and the power of mathematical abstraction and symbolism.
BSICSKL 030CE Basic Skills Geometry
This course includes the study of two and three dimensions from an algebraic point of view. Topics include: translation between synthetic and coordinate representation; deduction of properties of figures using transformations and coordinates; identification and classification of figures in terms of congruence and similarity; interpretation and use of three-dimensional objects and geometric models; and application of properties of figures. Students utilize the extension of trigonometry to angles greater than 90 degrees as a precursor to the development of circular function trigonometry in later courses. Students also analyze properties of Euclidean transformations, relate translations to vectors, and develop an understanding of an axiomatic system through investigations and proofs.
BSICSKL 031CE Basic Skills Algebra 2
This course complements and expands on the mathematical concepts of Algebra 1 and some concepts of Geometry. Emphasis is placed on abstract thinking skills, the function concept, and the algebraic solution of problems in various content areas, including the solution of systems of equations, logarithmic and exponential functions, the binomial theorem, and the complex number system
BSICSKL 032CE Basic Skills Trigonometry / Precalculus Preparation
This course utilizes the techniques of both algebra and geometry. Trigonometric functions are defined geometrically, rather than in terms of algebraic equations.
