1. Courses must be taken in sequence and credit must be earned before the next credit is attempted, except where noted. 2. Students must earn four math credits, including Alg.II, to meet graduations requiremenmts 3. Computer courses cannot be used to meet math graduation requirements. 4. Upper level math courses may be taken concurrently with departmental approval. 5. Pre-Cal/Trig should be taken during the junior year if the student plans to take the AP Calculus class the senior year. 6. The use of calculators is encouraged throughout the math courses. The student should check with teachers about the type and usage of the calculators. 7. Failure of either semester of a math course will result in the student being required to re-take or make up the semester failed.
Grade: 9 Prerequisite: none Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit This is a course for students who are not prepared to take Algebra I as the first year math course. The course will cover all algebra I coursework at a less rigorous pace. A scientific calculator is required.
Grade: 10, 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Algebra I (with D+ or below) Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit This course is a less rigorous paced Alg. II class. The student will review linear algebra and learn algebra II concepts involving quadratics. This course will focus on problem solving and applications. A scientific calculator is recommended.
Grade: 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Alg. II Foundations or Alg. I Length: 2 sem, 1 per, 1 credit This course is designed to focus on concepts of geometry. This is a non-proof geometry course. The successful student will gain a solid basis of Algebra and Geometry. Next math course in the sequence is Alg. II.
Grade: 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Algebra II Length: 2 sem, 1 per, 1 credit This course is designed for students who anticipate a future need for college courses in mathematics, but who are not adequately prepared. This course will review skills from Algebra and Geometry and introduce some college level Elementary Algebra skills. This course is designed so that the student must spend as much time out of class working as in class. Problem-solving methods are used throughout the course. A graphing calculator is recommended.
Grade: 9 Prerequisite: none Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit This course is designed to help students gain skill in solving challenging problems using abstract concepts and representations in mathematics. The student will learn to represent unknown values with letters, expand the laws to include operations with variables, and develop problem-solving techniques of various types. Algebra I will provide a concrete understanding of linear algebra. Recommended calculator: TI N-spire cx.
Grade: 9, 10, 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Algebra I Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit Geometry is the study of figures in a two dimensional plane and three-dimensional space. Three classes of objects are considered: points, lines, and planes. Students will gain logic skills and improve upon principles of Algebra and graphing skills. Figures studied include: lines, angles, triangles, polygons, and circles. Recommended calculator: TI N-spire cx
Grade: 10, 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Geometry or Foundations series Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit Algebra II is the study of the real and complex number systems using the techniques of algebra as outgrowths of these number systems, and applying algebraic concepts and skills to complex problems. Algebra II will provide a concrete understanding of quadratics. A graphing calculator is required. Calculator: TI N-spire cx.
Grade: 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Algebra II Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit weighted
This course is for the college bound student with a solid understanding of mathematical principles. Some of the topics to be covered in this course: statistics, probability, study of functions and trigonometry. These areas are the common math courses taken in the first year of college for math, science and business students. After successfully completing this course, students should be well prepared to meet college math requirements.
Grade: 11 & 12 Prerequisite: Algebra II Length: 2 sems, 1 per, 1 credit weighted
This course will continue the study of functions and the complex number system. Trigonometry will be an integral part of this course. Other topics will include topics such as conic sections, functions, and advanced graphing techniques. A
Grade 11 or 12 Prerequisite: successful completion of Pre-Cal/Trig Length: 2 sem, 1 per, 1 credit weighted This course is intended for the college bound student with strong math ability. Students will study first year college Calculus in this class. An AP test score of three (3) or better will earn the student a math credit at any college. A graphing calculator is required. |
