## Algebra 1

The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in last year's 7th grade math course. This will be a more ambitious version of Algebra 1 than a similar course taught in a non-GT middle or high school Algebra 1 class. The course will deepen and extend students' understanding of linear, quadratic, and exponential relationships by contrasting and comparing them with each other.

## Integrated 2

The focus of our courses is on making mathematics meaningful and connected inextricably to the real world. Through an integrated curriculum that promotes problem solving, conceptual understanding, and mathematical modeling, students develop a robust understanding of mathematics and an enhanced ability to retrieve and apply it.
