This is an optional final exam to assess learning over units 4-6 as a whole. To grade this final, find the answer key in the resources section.

**Course Description**

Math for 9^{th} – 11^{th} Grade weaves together previous study of Algebra concepts into a preparatory course for Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Precalculus. The course progresses from foundational concepts like understanding the real number system and conversion of units of measure to linear equations and inequalities before moving into a study of polynomials with an emphasis on quadratic equations. It then extends into the complex number system and explores topics like vectors, matrices, and right triangle properties and trigonometry. The course topics address both abstract mathematical concepts as well as real-world problem situations, uniquely blending both algebraic and geometric concepts and approaches. There is consistent emphasis on explaining mathematical terminology, knowing that this is key for overcoming common stumbling blocks and reaching deeper understanding and therefore confidence. The course focuses on the mastery of critical and foundational skills and exposure to new skills necessary for success in subsequent math courses.

**Course Includes**

- 16+ hours of engaging instructional video
- 6 Units
- 50 video lessons
- 47 practice worksheets with printable answer keys
- 47 worksheet review videos where I go over each of the exercises
- 47 online “Knowledge Check” quizzes
- 15 “Challenge Problems” as extensions to each unit’s knowledge

- Solutions sets to each of the 15 challenge problems
- Guided solutions showing step by step work to each of the 15 challenge problems
- Final Exam for Units 1-3
- Final Exam for Units 4-6
- Solutions sets for both final exams
- Introduction to Desmos video showing helpful hints for first time users

**Course Goals**

Upon completion of this course, students will be prepared to move on to math courses which demands strong algebra skills such as: Trigonometry, analytic Geometry, Precalculus, Linear Algebra, and eventually courses like Calculus and Statistics.

**Course**** Requirements**

Student taking this course are expected to have basic algebra skills such simplify expressions using order of operations, plotting points and graphing lines in slope-intercept form (y = mx + b) .

**Target Audience**

This video course is primarily intended for students who have already mastered Algebra 1 concepts and is designed so that it can be taken before **or** after both Geometry and Algebra 2. This course will also help students in building their mathematical and analytical skills which will prepare them for taking other courses in mathematics and the sciences.

**Technology**

Students will need a calculator capable of performing the basic operations, as well as square roots and trigonometric functions.

The majority of the lessons are taught so that technology is not needed. However there are some where the use of a calculator or computer is required. If the student has a scientific calculator (performs basic operations as well as square roots and trigonometric functions) or graphing calculator such as a TI-83 or 84 that will be sufficient, or a student can use the free online resources www.wolframalpha.com and www.desmos.com.

Under the Additional Resources for Parents are tutorial videos that show how to use either online resources or a calculator to perform the work needed.
