Linear Algebra – 3 trimesters
This course is designed to prepare students for a rigorous college preparatory algebra course. It uses a problem-based approach with concrete models. The course helps students to develop multiple strategies to solve problems and to recognize the connections between concepts. Some strategies student will be able to remember and apply are: Analyze data, model integers, and operations, computer area and perimeter, use linear models and equal ratios, solve percent problems, compare ratios, calculate unit rates and slope ratios, use the triangle inequality and the Pythagorean theorem.
