Essential Math I

This course introduces students to the real number system and its properties. Students will study linear relationships and be introduced to evaluating and graphing quadratic and exponential functions. Topics will include simplifying polynomial expressions, solving and graphing algebraic equations and inequalities, factoring, solving systems of linear equations, distance, area and volume formulas, and interpreting data. Students will be introduced to evaluating and graphing quadratic and exponential functions. Topics will be based on students’ needs and aligned with Math I Standards. A graphing calculator is required, and a TI-84 is recommended.

Note: While this course meets Cardinal Gibbons and the state’s requirements for graduation, and the course is a good fit for students who find Math challenging, it does not meet the NCAA guidelines for eligibility in D1 or D2 schools.
