We are excited to be offering summer programming for middle and high school students.  You do not need to be a CCHS student to attend our workshops.

 

COURSE TITLE: PREVIEW/REVIEW ALGEBRA 1

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will be a review of Algebra 1 material that is required to know before taking Geometry.  This course will also be beneficial to students who are currently in Geometry, but would like to review concepts before taking Algebra 2.  

Designed to preview basic Algebraic concepts, including operations with integers, positive and negative fractions and decimals, order of operations, simplifying Algebraic expressions, implementation of the distributive property, solving equations with variables, operations with polynomial expressions, and factoring polynomials. Variety of problem-solving techniques is applied.  

The content of this course is important for students’ success in high school math and for both the ACT and SAT exams.

Entering Grade: 7-12

Instructor: Francis cfrancis@cchsknights.org

Dates:  June 11 – June 28 (Mon. – Thurs.)

Time: 10am – 11:50am

Fee: $250

Enrollment Min: 5

Enrollment Max: 28

Location: CCHS Room 116

Course Requirements: Students are expected to bring to class, a graphing calculator (TI-84) and a notebook.

 


COURSE TITLE: TEST PREP/SAT/ACT/EVERYDAY PROBLEM SOLVING

COURSE DESCRIPTION: A variety of instructional methods will be implemented to meet each student’s learning style.  This course is designed to prepare students for the SAT/ACT test in mathematics by familiarizing each student with the organization and content of the test. Most of the time will be spent reviewing key concepts in math; however, some time will be dedicated to developing test-taking strategies and practice testing.   More importantly, this class will focus on the art of everyday problem-solving. Which every student will need to master to be successful in his or her future. This program covers various problem-solving techniques from Pre-Algebra to Precalculus that fall within the range of Grade 7 – 12 Math. This Ultimate Classroom is a comprehensive test prep that includes 20-24 hours of in-class instruction, practice exams, and practice questions. All materials are included with the course fee.

COURSE TITLE: PREVIEW of TRIGONOMETRY

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to help students make the transition from Algebra 2 to trig. This course covers mathematical topics in trigonometry. Trigonometry is the study of triangle angles and lengths, but trigonometric functions have far-reaching applications beyond simple studies of triangles. This course is designed to help prepare students to enroll for a first-semester course in single variable calculus

A few of the topics are :

Manipulating Graphs: Shifts and Stretches

Manipulating Graphs: Symmetry and Reflections

Quadratic Functions

Composite Functions

Graphing Rational Functions

The Trigonometric Functions Angles and Radian Measure

Right Angle Trigonometry

Applications of Right Triangle Trigonometry

The Trigonometric Functions Graphing Sine and Cosine Functions

Trigonometric Identities Basic

The Law of Sines

The Law of Cosines Heron’s Formula Complex Numbers Operations
