SPECIAL EDUCATION

Department Overview

The Special Education course offerings are divided into three levels: MildModerate (MM), Moderate (MOD) (formerly known as LH/S may include AF and Adult Transition for some classes), and ModerateSevere (MS) (formerly known as SH). Students must have designated services through the IEP process to take special education courses. All Special Education coursework is aligned with the IEP, as well as Content and Performance Standards. Students in RSP programs are fullyincluded in general education throughout the day unless the IEP team determines that a MildModerate special education class is most appropriate.

3723 MATH 3A (P)
9th - 12th
10.0 credits
Recommendation: Completion of Junior High course, Math 2, but needing a slower pace for math concept and skill acquisition. For Mild/Moderate only.

Students will understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations. They will investigate patterns of association in bivariate data and reason quantitatively, using units to solve problems. Students will create equations that describe numbers or relationships, understanding solving equations as a process of reasoning and able to explain the reasoning. They will solve equations and inequalities in one variable, solve systems of equations, and represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically. They will define, evaluate, and compare functions and use functions to model relationships between quantities. Students will understand the concept of a function and use function notation, interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context, analyze functions using different representations, construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems, and interpret expressions for functions in terms of the situation they model. The students will be able to go beyond the simple application of previously constructed mathematics to real-world problems. Students will understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
