Class Description

This course builds on algebra 2 concepts and strengthens understanding of geometry. It will prepare students to succeed in a calculus course, which is necessary to succeed in physics, chemistry, and other mathematically based studies.


Prerequisites:

Students should have completed a course in algebra 2 before attempting this class. A course in

geometry would be helpful but is not required.


Textbook Title: Saxon Advanced Mathematics

Textbook edition: 2nd edition 1998

Textbook ISBN: 978-1-56577-039-3


Homework Required? YES!! Mastery of mathematics requires extensive problem solving and review,

which is the primary strength of Saxon math texts.

Students will need to read the lessons before class and attempt all the problems so that they will “know

what they do not know”.


Materials required: A calculator will be helpful.

The solutions manual is not required, but can be very helpful. It should only be used when the student is

completely stumped.


Other notes:

This course is designed to be finished in 2-4 semesters, depending on student strength. Finishing in 2 semesters requires covering 4 lessons per week. Slowing to 3 lessons per week would finish in 3

semesters. I am preparing for strong students, in a small class size, and expect to finish in 2 semesters.

We can adjust class speed if necessary.


There will be a test after every four lessons. In order to make the best use of our time, tests will be

completed at home and brought to the next class.

Most of our class time will involve answering student questions and reviewing test questions, with a little

time to look ahead to the next section.
