UC Scout Algebra 1: This curriculum emphasizes a multi-representational  approach to algebra, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, analytically, and verbally. It develops algebraic fluency by providing students with the skills needed to solve equations and perform important manipulations with numbers, variables, equations, and inequalities. In addition, the course develops proficiency with operations involving monomial and polynomial expressions. The main unifying themes of the course include understanding, writing, solving, and graphing linear equations, systems of linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, and rational equations.


 UC Scout Geometry: Have fun with figures learning the basics of geometry. You’ll boost your problem-solving prowess by applying geometry concepts to calculate angles and intersecting lines, perimeters, polygons, area and volume, and more. In short, you’ll learn about shapes and how to measure and divide them. Projects, web labs, and interactive content will help you gain the geometric know-how you need to succeed.

 

UC Scout Algebra II:   Algebra II is based on the California Department of Education Common Core Mathematics Content Standards. Topics include linear functions, inequalities, and systems; quadratic functions and complex numbers; polynomials and polynomial functions; rational exponents and radical functions; exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions; conic sections; counting methods and probability; and sequences and series.

 

UC Scout Pre-calculus: Vectors, matrices, conic sections and polar graphs–oh my! If these mathematical buzzwords strike fear into your heart, don’t worry: you’re not alone. You’ll soon master these concepts, as well as trigonometry, radicals and fractional exponents and more with SCOUT’s Pre-Calculus class. Lessons and skill assessments are designed to maximize your understanding and retention of key math concepts so that you have the skills to ace the test.

UC Scout Biology: The Biology course is a first-year course in biology at the high school level. The course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to algebra, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, analytically, and verbally. The course uses four themes to organize important concepts throughout the course: science, technology, and society; evolution; the relationship between structure and function; and science as a process.


The Biology course involves the scientific study of living organisms. The course considers the interactions among the vast number of organisms that inhabit planet Earth. It presents the basic form and function of these organisms, from cells to organ systems, from simple viruses to complex humans. It delves into interactions between organisms, and between an organism and its environment. It also looks into how biotechnology is used to improve our health and daily lives.
