Course Syllabus

  


COURSE DESCRIPTION

AQR is a fourth year mathematics course that equips students with a mathematical process to arrive at real- world decisions. In AQR, students will continue to build on the K-8, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry foundations as well as expanding the understanding through other mathematical experiences. The primary focal points of AQR include the analysis of information using statistical methods and probability, modeling change and mathematical relationships, mathematical decision making in finance, and spatial and geometric modeling for decision making. In AQR, students learn to become critical consumers of the quantitative data that surround them every day, knowledgeable decision makers who use logical reasoning, and mathematical thinkers who can use their quantitative skills to solve problems related to a wide range of situations. As students work with these mathematical topics, they continually rely on mathematical processes, including problem- solving techniques, appropriate mathematical language and communications skills, connections within and outside mathematics and reasoning. Student will also use multiple representations, technology, applications and modeling, and numerical fluency in problem-solving context.
