In addition to reviewing and expanding on the material in Algebra I, this rigorous, fast-paced, full credit course covers complex numbers; polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions; systems in two and three variables; sequences and series; introductory trigonometry; introductory probability; and applications of all of these topics. Instruction will emphasize multiple representations of concepts, including a strong expectation of technology use (graphing calculators and dynamic Web-based tools). Daily sessions will combine independent, group, and instructor-led work sessions. Students will be expected to complete additional work at home in preparation for each class. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department Chair
prior to taking this course for academic credit
. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit.
