This is the third of a three-year sequence of courses 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. Students learn how to represent linear functions with graph and tables; learn rules and context; solve systems of equations and contextual word problems through multiple strategies; describe geometric transformations; collect and analyze data while making predictions based on a trend; analyze the slope of a line; recognize and solve problems involving proportional relationships; use the Pythagorean Theorem and square roots; represent and compare large and small numbers using standard and scientific notation; and use relationships between angles created by parallel lines.
