This course will fulfill the fourth year math requirement for graduation, has an Algebra 2 prerequisite and will count as a math credit toward university admission. It is designed around the structure of STEM practices to teach the practical application of math in our society. We will be using an innovative, non-traditional, “hands-on” methodology in our curriculum. The justification for the implementation of this course is to provide college bound students an opportunity to explore mathematics as it is utilized in real world situations.
The course is aligned with the Arizona Common Core Standards for Mathematics and specifically addresses the following:
A need for this class was seen through the lens of the Mathematical Practices of the Common Core. Students in the traditional mathematics class are seldom given the time and opportunity to see the connections between math in action and the world in which they live.
