    Course Description

    Course Cost: $300.00 - Credit: .5

    Meet with your campus counselor before you register for an online course.

    Note for Plano ISD Students:

    This Algebra 1, Semester 1 course is offered for credit recovery only. A student must have the approval of his/her counselor before registering.

    Course Materials:

    No textbook required.
    All materials are included in the course. It is recommended that the student purchase a graphing calculator (such as a Texas Instruments Model TI-83 Plus, TI 84Plus, or Casio fx-9750). However, this is not required, as a link to a freely available online calculator is provided within the course.

    Course Description:

    The first semester of Algebra I introduces students to concepts that will serve as the foundation for their study of mathematics throughout high school and into college. Students will explore the topics of equations, functions, and inequalities. Students will demonstrate understanding numerically, graphically, analytically, and verbally through the use of quizzes, written journals, unit tests, and a cumulative final exam.

  • Pre-Calculus - Semester 1

    REGISTER NOW: PRE-CALCULUS - SEMESTER 1


    Course Description

    Course Cost: $340.00 - Credit: .5

    Meet with your campus counselor before you register for an online course.

    Course Materials:

    No textbook required.

    All course materials are available within the course. Pre-Calculus Toolkit is available on the student launch pad.

    Course Description:

    Pre-calculus completes the formal study of the functions begun in Algebra I and Algebra II. Students focus on modeling, problem solving, data analysis, trigonometric and circular functions and their inverses, polar coordinates, complex numbers, conics, and quadratic relations. Discrete topics include the Proof by Induction and the Binomial Theorem along with sequences and series. The instructional design is based on state standards and research stemming from the National Mathematics Advisory Panel’s Final Report. This course includes scaffolding in the form of animation, feedback, hints, and a glossary. Embedded critical mistakes and common misconceptions guidance lead students to understand the reasoning behind correct and incorrect responses. There is also an emphasis on repetition and practice. Projects, located on the Resource page, can be completed offline and help students move into higher-level thinking based on Bloom’s Taxonomy.
