# Course Descriptions - Mathematics

Purpose:
Description: This semester course is designed to give students a background in mathematics necessary to help them be successful in Algebra I. The course will cover integers, fractions, the basic properties of math, order of operations, variable expressions, solving basic equations, word problems, and graphing. Daily homework is an essential part of this course.
Prerequisites:
Linear Equations 0.5 Credit(s) #3915
Purpose:
Description: In this course, students will study the relationship that exists when you display, analyze, and make predictions using univariate and bivariate data. Students will learn to write, solve, and interpret systems of two linear equations and inequalities using graphing and algebraic techniques. Students will learn to represent univariate and bivariate data to analyze relationships and make predictions. Students will learn to write, solve, graph and interpret linear equations and inequalities to modelrelationships between quantities. Students will learn to use vectors and matrices to represent univariate and bivariate relationships. Students will learn simple matrix algebra and its relationship with univariate and bivariate data.
Prerequisites:
