(Prerequisite: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Grace Academy Issued Placement Test) – This course is designed to build upon knowledge gained in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. It emphasizes understanding of math concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. Students learn the context behind the procedure: why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem, for example. This equips them with higher-order thinking to apply math skills, functions and concepts in different situations. The goal of the class is to help prepare students for material that they will see in college level math courses.
