Mathematics of Physics 

ALGEBRA 1.
Algebra 1 is organized around families of functions, with special emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. As you study each family of functions, you will learn to represent them in multiple ways-as verbal descriptions, equations, tables, and graphs. You will also learn to model real-world situations using functions in order to solve problems arising from those situations. In addition to algebra content, Algebra 1 includes lessons on probability and data analysis as well as numerous examples and exercises involving geometry. These math topics often appear on standardized tests (like the Keystone Exam), so maintaining your familiarity with them is important. To help you prepare for standardized tests, Algebra 1 provides instruction and practice on standardized test questions in a variety of formats-multiple choice, short response, extended response, and so on. Technology support for both learning algebra and preparing for standardized tests is also available throughout the course at classzone.com.

-Passing score on Course 3 final exam.
-Graphing calculators are useful, but not required, for successful completion.
-Completion of daily assignments is required for successful completion.
-Curriculum reflects PA Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content.

COURSE 2:
The early units of Course 2 focus on rational numbers, their operations, and their algebraic representations. You will build your understanding of these concepts using models, such as rulers, number lines, and verbal models. You will also apply your skills to problem-solving situations and use estimation to check reasonableness. Topics from math strands, such as measurement conversions, area, averages, and data displays, are introduced early in the course and then integrated and expanded upon throughout.
Later units include topics such as equations and functions, geometry, square roots, and probability. The number and variety of problems, ranging from basic to challenging, give you thepractice you need to develop your math skills.
Every lesson has both skill practice and problem solving, including multi-step problems. These types of problems often appear on standardized tests (like the Keystone Exams) and cover a wide variety of math topics. To help you prepare for standardized tests, Course 2 provided instructio and practice on standardized test questions in many formats-multiple choice, short response, extended response, and so on. Technology support for course content and standardized test preparation is available throughout the course at classzone.com.
-Completion of 6th grade.
-Curriculum reflects PA Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content.
