Algebra I
 

Students build on the foundational concepts presented in Grades K-8. Algebraic thinking and symbolic reasoning play a critical role in algebra. Since functions provide the foundation of Algebra I and Algebra II, this course uses a “function” approach as it provides the student opportunities to solve problems in real life situations. The study of functions, equations and their relationships is central to all of mathematics. Students perceive functions and equations as a means for analyzing and understanding a broad variety of relationships and as a useful tool for expressing generalizations. Students perceive the connections between algebra and geometry and use the tools of one to help solve problems in the other. Students use concrete, pictorial, numerical, symbolic, graphical, and verbal tools and technology to model mathematical situations to solve meaningful problems. The course is not totally dependent upon a graphing calculator, but it is used extensively throughout the year.

Adulting 101

This class is critical for young people ready to graduate into the real world.  The first semester consist of Personal Finance topics as covered in Dave Ramsey's Personal Finance but has Mrs. Devine's unique twist of preparing to "Move Out". Answer the critical questions of how much does an apartment cost, what's in a lease, how much does setting up an apartment cost,  renters insurance, and unexpected expenses.  How do you purchase a used car?  Car insurance and common mistakes students make.  The second-semester deals with career choice, resume writing for a skills-based resume, jobs that do not require a four-year degree but pay as well, interviewing skills, and interview follow-up.  How to apply for the FASFA (October), how to apply at AVC and other universities, Rate My Professor and scholarships for those attending college, and those who wish to go to trade school.  Who are you?? Personality Plus and the 7-habits of Highly Successful People (not the teen version - we are preparing to be adults) will be read with the workbook.  Mrs. Devine has been teaching this class for several years and has the real-life experience of teens in her family, some in college some not. Nothing but the truth here.

Biology Lab - High School

This Lab-based class can be completed alongside any standard Highschool Biology curriculum and complement what you do with your at-home curriculum (Including Bright Thinker).  Students will get help with everything from microbiology to taxonomy, but the main focus of the class will be on safely performing standard lab procedures and writing.  One class per week will be devoted to covering related subject matter questions students have after reading their chosen text.  The other class will be focused on a lab activity, recording, and writing about that lab.  Parents and students will need to join the class “band” using the band app and students will do coordinated reading chapters and associated work in advance of class activities related to each subject.  Students will need an A-G approved text, paper, pencils, colored pencils, and access to a word processor and Excel or another spreadsheet capable of creating xy scatter graphs.  Most of the supplies you will need will be things such as soil and pea seeds, and paper towels that are typically easy to find, but I want to be sure you have ample time to gather/order what your student will need.
