1 PHILOSOPHY OF THE MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT The Lemont High School Mathematics Department believes that students should develop the following characteristics: Understanding of concepts and procedures Building of mathematical skills through highquality instruction Mastery of material aligned with state and national standards Courses offered within the Mathematics curriculum help students learn challenging mathematics ideas through a variety of teaching techniques. The department is committed to properly integrating technology into all facets of the mathematics curriculum. Based on their abilities and course level, students shall reach the following National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards, which are outlined in Principles and Standards for School Mathematics: Numbers and Operations Standard Algebra Standard Geometry Standard Measurement Standard Data Analysis and Probability Standard Problem Solving Standard Reasoning and Proof Standard Communication Standard Connections Standard Representation Standard Grading Standards: Student grades are determined based on their performance on homework and final examinations, as well as cumulative proficiency. Note: A graphing calculator is required for all courses in the mathematics curriculum; students should consult with their instructors for more details. In order to select the proper Mathematics courses, students should consult the math flow chart, which may be viewed on the Lemont High School Web site. CORE COURSES  MATHEMATICS PreAlgebra Prerequisite: None Description: This course is an introduction to high school level mathematics, and prepares students to enroll in Algebra I. The course covers basic operations involving integers, decimals and fractions; algebraic expressions and equations; linear equations and inequalities; number line and coordinate graphing; exponents; exponential expressions; and absolute value. Students are expected to use a graphing calculator. Lemont High School Program of Studies 39
2 Algebra I Applications Grades Course Open To: Credit: 1.0 Prerequisite: Successful completion of one mathematics course Description: This course is designed to investigate and develop algebraic concepts through the use of technology. Problems from the areas of linear, polynomial and exponential functions, systems of equations, series and sequences, graph analysis and trigonometry involve applications from business, finance, economics and consumer education. Both algebraic and graphical interpretation of data are stressed, as is the connection between the algebraic and graphical representations of data. Note: This course satisfies the Consumer Education requirement. Algebra I AB Grades Course Open To: Credit: 2.0 Prerequisite: Successful completion of PreAlgebra or by result of placement test Description: This course covers the four fundamental operations with rational numbers, which are then applied to the solutions of equations in one variable. Students study axioms of inequalities, which is followed by work with inequalities in one variable. Solution sets and graphs of open sentences in two variables are presented, studied and solved. Multiplication and factoring of polynomials are discussed and equations in one variable are solved. Graphs are used to represent data and mathematical modeling. The course helps students appreciate the need for precision of language and lays the groundwork for the study of advanced algebra. The course meets daily, which allows students to develop a proficiency in basic skills in addition to comprehension of the mathematics language.
