Math Course for Grades 9, 10
Explore algebraic concepts with Algebra I, a high school math course that’s more rigorous than Principles of Algebra I.
In Ignite Christian Academy’s math courses, students strengthen critical thinking skills and learn to apply mathematical concepts to real-life situations to come up with practical solutions. Math allows students to see and discover the order of the natural world, through logic, patterns, and processes. Math gives students insight into the rational, consistent nature of God. Examination of various mathematical concepts contributes to a deeper understanding of God’s creative and ordered design and the responsibility to use the ability to reason, problem solve and make choices based on our understanding of content to serve and glorify God.
This full-year course focuses on five critical areas: relationships between quantities and reasoning with equations, linear and exponential relationships, descriptive statistics, expressions and equations, and quadratic functions and modeling. This course builds on the foundation set in middle grades by deepening students’ understanding of linear and exponential functions and developing fluency in writing and solving one-variable equations and inequalities. Students will interpret, analyze, compare, and contrast functions that are represented numerically, tabularly, graphically, and algebraically. Quantitative reasoning is a common thread throughout the course as students learn how they can use algebra to represent quantities and the relationships among those quantities in a variety of ways. Standards of mathematical practice and process are embedded throughout the course, as students make sense of problem situations, solve novel problems, reason abstractly, and think critically.
