M/J Mathematics 2

Subject: Mathematics

Course Description:

Do your parents like to start dinner with, "What did you learn in school today?" Imagine being able to answer your parent's dinner time question with, "I learned about transformations of shapes by sliding, flipping, rotating, and enlarging them on the coordinate plane. I compared my drawings with my friend's drawings and listed the difference." How surprised would your parents be to know that you answered this way not by sitting in a classroom, but by attending an interactive, online course for seventh graders? The FLVS MJ Math2 course gives plenty of opportunity to create, investigate, and demonstrate knowledge at both the intermediate and advanced levels. You will amaze yourself with the skills you will accumulate in completing this course. Full of animations, applications, videos, games, and real world scenarios, you may think this course is the latest video game.
