This course is considered a bridge to Algebra II, as it builds upon the student’s understanding of Algebra I skills in preparation for the skills taught in Algebra II. Within the context of mathematical modeling and data analysis, students will study functions and their behaviors, systems of inequalities, probability, experimental design and implementation, and analysis of data.
This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Algebra, Functions & Data Analysis.
