High School Mathematics

 

Algebra I

(2 Semesters – Credit Value: 2)

Prerequisite: None
Grade Level: 9,10
This foundational course is a study of the language of algebra in which the student learns to interpret and solve problems using algebraic terms and concepts. It includes operations with rational numbers, inequalities, powers, polynomials, factoring, graphs, functions, systems of equations, radical and rational expressions, and quadratics. This is the first of three math classes to meet college core requirement.

 

Algebra Concepts

(4 Semesters – Credit Value: 2)

Geometry

(2 Semesters – Credit Value: 2)

Prerequisite: Successful completion of two semesters of Algebra I
Grade Level: 9, 10, 11
This is the second of three classes to meet college core requirements. Students should have successfully completed both semesters of Algebra I. This class includes proofs, constructions, polygons, circles, coordinate geometry, solid geometry, and a short introduction to trigonometric functions.

Algebra II

(2 Semesters – Credit Value: 2)

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra I and Geometry
Grade Level: 9, 10, 11

Concepts to be mastered in this class include polynomial operations, factoring, graphing and solving linear and quadratic equations, operations on radicals, and functions.

 

Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus

(2 Semesters – Credit Value: 2)

Grade level: 11 & 12

Prerequisite: Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II credit. (Recommended grade 80% or above); teacher recommendation

The first semester includes a study of six basic functions of trigonometry, solutions of right and oblique triangles, identities, and complex numbers. The calculator is used as an aide to computations. The second semester gives a review study of straight lines, conic sections, simplification of equations, algebraic curves, transcendental curves, a completed study of straight lines, simplification of equations, polar coordinates, parametric equations, and an introduction to limits and derivatives. This course is designed to be a preparation course for Calculus.

 

Calculus

(2 semesters – Credit Value: 2)

Prerequisite:  “B” average in Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus

Grade Level: 12

Note:  Offering this course depends upon enrollment.

This course is the study of differential and integral calculus and analytic geometry.  It prepares students for a college entry-level calculus course.
