Wayne Rulon G.H.S. Teacher of MathematicsCourses Taught:* Integrated Algebra I (1 course all school year)
Integrated Algebra I is designed for students who have not achieved the minimum proficiency level on the PARCC as mandated by the NJ Department of Education. All students not demonstrating proficiency on the 8th grade Mathematics PARCC will be enrolled in this course. The purpose of this course is to prepare students to pass the rigorous Algebra I PARCC assessment. It will also prepare students for future math courses. The two course algebra program consists of four units: (a) Modeling with Linear Equations and Inequalities, (b) Modeling with Linear Functions, Linear Systems, and Exponential Functions, (c) Quadratic Equations, Functions, and Polynomials, and (d) Modeling with Statistics. Students must earn a 60 or better to be eligible to take Integrated Algebra II or Integrated Geometry.* Algebra II (2 courses this school year. 1 in the Fall and 1 in the Spring.)This course may be elected following Algebra 1 or Geometry. Algebra II consists of four units: (a) Complex Solutions and Modeling with Rational Exponents, (b) Polynomials and Analysis of Nonlinear Functions, (c) Periodic Models and the Unit Circle, and (d) Making Inference, Justifying Conclusion, and Conditional Probability. Prerequisite: Algebra I with a grade of “70” of better.* Honors Algebra II (1 course in the fall)This course is designed for the advanced mathematics student. Algebra II consists of four units: (a) Complex Solutions and Modeling with Rational Exponents, (b) Polynomials and Analysis of Nonlinear Functions, (c) Periodic Models and the Unit Circle, and (d) Making Inference, Justifying Conclusion, and Conditional Probability. Prerequisite: Algebra I with a grade of “90” of better* Honors Pre-Calculus (1 course in the spring)This math course is designed to prepare students for Calculus. It is an opportunity to review all of the concepts presents in Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. These concepts are then handled in greater detail. The topics covered include Trigonometry with graphing in rectangular and polar coordinates, graphing functions, limits of functions, logarithms. The student must have a graphing calculator; they are permitted and encouraged. For those who do not own a graphing calculators, students may borrow a school calculator but must return it before leaving class.
