Algebra A will offer students an opportunity to identify and analyze patterns, strengthen their computation of numbers and algebraic expressions, solve multi-step equations and investigate real-life problems in an algebraic manner.
Algebra 2 will offer students an opportunity to build on concepts taught in Algebra 1, Geometry and previous Algebra 2 classes (if B, C, D) while adding new concepts to the students’ repertoire of mathematics. Over four trimesters, students will develop an understanding that algebraic thinking is an accessible and powerful tool that can be used to model and solve real-world problems (Michigan Merit Curriculum Course/Credit Requirements).
Physics A and B
Physics is the study of the principles and processes that are the foundation of all sciences. Topic covered are: mechanics (how and why things move), wave energy (including light and sound), electricity and magnetism, and modern physics (including relativity). This course will be covering Physics in a “conceptual” nature. This course provides knowledge into all of the essential Physics standards as outlined by the State of Michigan.
