Algebra III is the fourth course in the systematic study of college preparatory mathematics. Students will continue to examine the different types of algebraic equations and discover methods for solving each. Recognizing and graphing many types of equations and inequalities is an essential part of this course. The second semester of Algebra III is a study of trigonometry. Students will use the graphing and conversion capabilities of their calculators when appropriate. Students will correctly use mathematical terms and symbols when speaking and/or writing. Accuracy, neatness, and organization are stressed in this class. The development of higher-order thinking skills is a primary objective, including recognizing patterns.
