**COURSE DESCRIPTION**

This course deepens and extends the understanding of expressions, equations, and functions studied in middle school math. The focus will be on:

1) relationships between quantities and reasoning with equations

2) linear and exponential relationships

3) polynomial expressions and equations

4) quadratic functions and modeling. Students will analyze, solve and use functions to model situations.

The Mathematical Practice Standards will be applied throughout this course.
