George Rogers Clark High School

GSAT SYLLABUS
Geometry, Statistics, Algebra, Trigonometry (and Probability) Course Prerequisite:
Teacher Recommendation & Placement Score

Textbook:
Connected Mathematics, Prentice Hall

Course Length:
Period: 51-54 minutes per day all year

CATS/KCCT Prep:
Daily warm-ups to cover KY Standards for testing

Units of Study and Objectives:


Number & Operations -Students will build an understanding of fractions, decimals & percents as well as understand the relationship among factors, multiples, divisors and products. Students will develop the ability to represent data in tables and graphs and find equivalent ratios to make accurate comparisons. Geometry -Students will develop strategies for finding areas and perimeters for all shapes as well as applying those strategies in real life scenarios. Students will acquire knowledge of properties of polygons and communicate spatial information. The concepts of volume and surface area will be developed as well as the discovery of the Pythagorean Theorem. Algebra -Students will understand that variables in a situation are those quantities that change. Students will search for patterns of change that show relationships among variables. Students will create tables, graphs and symbolic rules that describe such patterns and will use a graphing calculator to create these visual representations. Probability & Statistics -Students will apply the process of data investigation and will represent data using line plots, bar graphs, stem-and-leaf plots and coordinate graphs. Students will explore methods of describing data such as the shape of the distribution, measures of center and range or variability. Students will also develop an understanding of the possible outcomes in a situation and will use probability and expected value to make decisions.
