Math Courses:
Algebra I
Grade: 9th, 10th
Description: A course designed to help the student understand the basic structure of Algebra, recognize the techniques of Algebra, and acquire facility in applying algebraic concepts and skills. This course is essential to college bound students and for students entering vocational and technical skills.
Algebra I Honors: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: This course is designed for the more advanced mathematics students. Algebra I Honors will cover more material and move at a faster pace than Algebra I.
Prerequisite: Students must pass a screening test, have above average grades in previous math courses, and have the current math teacher’s recommendation to schedule this course.
Geometry
Grade: 10th, 11th
Description: Geometry focuses on the study of visual patterns and the use of geometry, to represent mathematical concepts, and to teach problemsolving skills. Students utilize inductive reasoning to confirm conjectures through proof. Topics include measurement formulas: geometric and spatial visualization; drawing skills; properties of congruence, similarity, parallelism, and perpendicularity; and properties of plane and solid figures.
Geometry Honors: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: This course is designed for the more advanced mathematics student. Geometry Honors will cover more material and move at a faster pace than Geometry.
Prerequisite: Algebra I or Geometry & Honors teacher recommendation; additionally, eighth graders earning credit in Algebra I must pass the Algebra I screening test.
Math Essentials
Grade: 11th, 12th
Description: Math Essentials is a course developed with the intent of increasing ACT scores, thus decreasing the number of students required to enroll in remedial math courses in technical or community colleges. This course is graphing calculator based and uses applications in a variety of reallife settings to provide relevance to students.
Prerequisite: Algebra I
Financial Mathematics
Grade: 11th, 12th
Description: A course designed to focus on mathematical concepts and applications needed for the design and management of personal and business finances. Financial Mathematics serves as a foundation for ALL students to learn to make mathematically sound decisions in their roles as consumers, employees, and/or entrepreneurs. This course extends students’ knowledge of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percents as well as basic statistics, and probability, algebra, geometry, and data analysis in the context of relevant real life problemsolving situations. Emphasis is placed on various mathematical processes which include manual or electronic calculations of payroll, income tax preparations, interest computations, consumer information, managing income, buying insurance, selling and buying, making sound credit and investment decisions and other items that may be related to personal and business transactions.
Algebra II
Grade: 11th, 12th
Description: This course is an advanced level of algebra designed to help the student understand concepts and skills essential to pursuing college mathematics. Algebra II focuses on sharpening the understanding of concepts introduced in Algebra I and Geometry and extending the use of functions as models for realworld situations. The use of graphing calculators will be incorporated throughout the course.
Prerequisite: Algebra I (C or above), Geometry (C or above) or Teacher Recommendation.
Algebra II Honors: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: This course is designed for the more advanced mathematics student. Honors Algebra II will cover more material and move at a faster pace than regular Algebra II classes.
Prerequisite: Algebra I (A or B average), Geometry (A or B average) – Must have approval of Geometry Honors or Honors Algebra II teacher.
Calculus ABAdv. Placement: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Grade: 12th
Description: A course designed for students planning to major in a mathematics, scientific, or business field. This course prepares the student for the Advanced Placement Exam on the AB level.
Prerequisite: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Advanced Mathematics, 3.0 minimum average in mathematics. It is recommended that students enrolling in Calculus have credit in Algebra II Honors and Advanced Math Honors. TEACHER APPROVAL REQUIRED.
Calculus BCAdv. Placement: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Grade: 12th
Description: This course prepares the student for the Advanced Placement Exam on the BC level.
Prerequisite: Calculus AB – (AP). Teacher approval Required.
Advanced Math
Grade: 11th, 12th
Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: Designed to prepare students for courses in precalculus, sequences, statistics, abstract algebra, and probability. 1st semester – Trigonometry; 2nd semester – Advanced Algebra.
Prerequisite: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II (“C” average recommended)
Advanced Math Honors: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: This course is designed for the more advanced mathematics student. Advanced Math Honors will cover more material and move at a faster pace than Advanced Math.
Prerequisite: Recommendation of Algebra II teacher. Algebra II Honors credit recommended.
Statistics
Grade: 12th
Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: This course provides an introduction to probability and statistics with applications. Topics include: basic probability models, random variables, probability distributions, confidence intervals, and linear regression. This course is handson and students will be engaged in constructing their own knowledge through the use of technology, projects and laboratories, cooperative group problemsolving, and writing. Students are required to take the AP examination.
