Course Overview

The High School Math I course builds on the common core state standards for Grade 8 and is correspondingly more advanced than our previous mathematic course taught in grade 9. High School Math I integrates content from algebra, geometry, trigonometry and statistics based on the development level of knowledge needed to conduct real world mathematical problem solving. This course starts with advanced topics and includes in depth work with linear functions, exponential functions and relationships, transformations and connecting algebra and geometry through coordinates. It also goes beyond the previous high school standards in statistics.


Implementation of the Common Core State Standards and Objectives for Mathematics through engaging instruction coupled with rigorous learning activities and assessment is hard work. During the 2011-2012 school year, a dedicated group of WV classroom teachers worked collaboratively to study the High School Math I standards, objectives and performance descriptors and designed quality units of instruction that encompass the content, skills and understandings reflected in this set of grade level standards. The units and lessons created by these teachers, model best practices in student engagement, provide rigorous learning activities and quality formative assessment opportunities that are the basis for this Media-rich course guide.
