Algebra 1-  Rising 8 -10 Grade

June 15 - July 23 
8:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon
$1,300 ($650 per semester)

Algebra 1 is designed to build a foundation of algebraic proficiencies, to improve computational skills, to develop problem-solving ability, and to generate a positive attitude towards mathematics.  Problem solving is taught in a strategic fashion to ensure students master fundamental algebra skills and concepts.  Linear equations, quadratic equations, and inequalities are graphed and used for solving word problems.

UC/CSU approved course
NCAA Core Course

Prerequisite: Completion of Pre-Algebra 1 or equivalent Common Core elective.

Geometry-  Rising 9-11 Grade
June 15 - July 23 
8:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon
$1,300 ($650 per semester)

Current Archbishop Mitty students must first receive approval for Summer Advancement before registering online for this course.

Geometry teaches the properties and relationships of points, lines, and planes for both two and three-dimensional figures and their applications to area, volume, and proportion. It includes an introduction to analytic geometry, a study of the structure of logic and deductive, inductive and intuitive reasoning, and the development of proof and construction. Understanding the relationship between geometry and algebra, and how geometry assists algebra in developing solutions to problems are expected outcomes as well.

Trigonometry is a 3-week (5 high school credit) course designed to prepare students to succeed at higher-level mathematics studied in pre-calculus, calculus and physics. Study of problems involving angles, triangles and objects that move in circular motion, or orbits are undertaken.  Additional topics include angle measure in degrees and radians, trigonometric and circular functions and their graphs, right triangles, oblique triangles, inverse trigonometric functions and vectors.
