**ALGEBRA I**

Grade Level: 9-10

Length: 1 year

Prerequisite: Teacher recommendation, DHS or 8th grade or completion of Algebra 1A.

Graduation: Fulfills one of three math requirements.

College Prep: Fulfills CSU/UC math requirement with a “C” better.

This course is a Dublin High School math graduation requirement. Functions and data analysis topics are enhanced through labs and student projects. The graphing calculator is an essential tool and helps clarify concepts though visualization. This course meets college admission requirements. Students must pass both semesters of this course to meet the state high school graduation requirements.

**ALGEBRA II **

Grade Level: 9-12

Length: 1 year

Prerequisite: “D” grade or better in Geometry

Graduation: Fulfills one of three math requirements.

College Prep: Fulfills CSU/UC math requirement w/ “C” or better.

This course is a Dublin High School math graduation requirement. This course teaches the California standards for Algebra II. It does not include the study of Trigonometry . Topics studied include equations, functions, graphing, matrices, sequences and series, coordinate geometry, conic sections, statistics, data analysis, and probability in addition to algebra concepts. The use of graphing calculator technology enhances the study of these topics. It is strongly recommended that each student have their own graphing calculator. **If a student plans on enrolling in Physics the following year, they MUST take Algebra II With Trigonometry.**

Grade Level: 9-12

Length: 1 year

Prerequisite: Recommended “C” grade or better in Geometry

Graduation: Fulfills one of three math requirements.

College Prep: Fulfills CSU/UC math requirement with “C” or better

This course is a Dublin High School math graduation requirement.This rigorous course teaches not only the required California standards for Algebra II but also includes the study of basic trigonometric functions and their graphs. Topics studied include equations, functions, graphing, matrices, sequences and series, coordinate geometry, conic sections, trigonometry, statistics, data analysis, and probability in addition to algebra concepts. The use of graphing calculator technology enhances the study of these topics and is regularly used in assignment. It is strongly recommended that each student have their own graphing calculator. The student needs good study skills. This course is required by the Science department if the student plans to take Physics the following year.
