ALGEBRA The purpose of this course is to develop algebraic concepts and processes that will enhance each student’s analytical reasoning that will be helpful when facing a variety of real-world decisions. My major goals for the year are that all students: Develop analytical and reasoning skills needed to advance to higher-level math courses; Improve reading comprehension by analyzing story problems and case studies involving algebra; Achieve the knowledge and skills needed to PASS or exceed requirements of the EOC Mathematics examination; Benefit from algebraic reasoning in solving problems in the real world; and, Appreciate that critical thinking skills will enhance the likelihood of successful outcomes.

    KHAN ACADEMY ASSIGNMENT Introduction to Sequences: Sequence and series are one of the basic topics in Arithmetic. An itemized collection of elements in which repetitions of any sort is allowed is known as a sequence, whereas series is the sum of all elements.  With the help of definition, formulas and examples we are going to discuss the concepts of sequence as well as series. Some sequences follow a specific pattern that can be used to extend them indefinitely. Sequences can have formulas that tell us how to find any term in the sequence.  At their own pace, each student will view short videos; work concept practice problems; and take short quizzes.
