Enriched Intermediate Algebra is designed to review concepts from Algebra 1 and develop an understanding of new algebra principles and concepts.  In the first term, we will begin by reviewing a few key concepts from last year as well as probabilities, counting techniques, and scientific notation. In the second term, we will be focused heavily on solving and graphing quadratics through a variety of methods as well as some data analysis techniques. 

Materials needed for this class:
-Paper: loose leaf or a notebook, preferably college ruled
-Binder to keep all notes, practice problems, and other handouts
-Pencil and/or pen
-white board marker (any brand or color)
-Calculator: A TI-84 (any version) Graphing Calculator is required for this class. The TI-83 Plus will work as well, but will execute some functions differently. We, as a math department, do not recommend any other brand or model of calculator for this class.

This class will utilize the “Flipped Classroom Learning Model”. This means that students are expected to watch a lesson video and complete their guided notes on a section before coming to class. In class, we will review the material and expand upon the lesson through the class activities. Students that do not complete the notes may be asked to leave the class until they have completed the notes. This model allows the students to have more time in class to ask questions and complete quizzes.

We will have fun this year learning in a variety of ways. All I ask of you is to put forth an honest effort each day. If you put forth an honest effort, we will achieve great things in this class together! I look forward to getting to know you and working with you this semester.
