Course Overview

Mathematics is the study of patterns around us. In M/J Pre-Algebra, Semester
B, you will study the use of scientific notation and learn to use roots appropriately. You
will plot and compare irrational numbers and simplify expressions with irrational
numbers. You will also explore the Pythagorean Theorem and probability and statistics,
which you can use to solve real-world problems.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will:
Explore properties of exponents, and understand the use of scientific notation.
Compare, add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers expressed in scientific notation.
Work with square and cube roots, and use decimal expansion to understand the real
number system.
Plot and compare irrational numbers, and simplify expressions with irrational numbers.
Apply facts about angle relationships in triangles.
Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find unknown side lengths and to find the distance
between two points in a coordinate system.
Learn the formulas for the volume of cones, cylinders, and spheres, and use them to solve
real-world and mathematical problems.
Interpret and describe data in scatter plots, and informally fit lines to model data in scatter
plots.
Apply linear equations from scatter plots, and construct and apply two-way tables.
