Why Take This Course?
Math can represent and describe the world around us. In this course, students will explore how systems, sequences, and expressions can deepen problem-solving skills. In HS Math 1B, we will refine our ability to think and reason logically as we study equations and inequalities, scatter plots and other data distributions, and two-way tables. Additionally, we will discuss classics and explore the minds of the great thinkers who discovered mathematical patterns that we use today. Students will leave this course armed with tools to solve multiple problems and strong foundations for future mathematical learning.
