GSE Honors Algebra I

The fundamental purpose of Algebra I is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas, organized into units, deepen and extend understanding of functions by comparing and contrasting linear, quadratic, and exponential phenomena. The Honor’s course incorporates much more rigor and uses more discovery in the lessons. More projects and tasks are incorporated and the mathematics is applied in a variety of problems and situations. The course is the first in a sequence of mathematics courses designed to ensure that students are prepared to take higher‐level mathematics courses during their high school career, including Advanced Placement Calculus AB, Advanced Placement Calculus BC, and Advanced Placement Statistics.
