High School Math Courses

Pre-Algebra

This course will place a strong emphasis on the continued study of integers, order of operations, variables, expressions, and equations.  Students will solve and graph equations and inequalities, write and solve proportions, and explore geometry, statistics, and graph concepts.  Problem solving will be emphasized throughout the course. 

 

Algebra I

This course is designed to emphasize the study of multiple representations of linear and non-linear functions.  It includes mathematical concepts for working with rational numbers, various expressions, analyzing and solving linear equations & inequalities, data analysis, probability, statistics, and polynomials.  Students will use hands-on materials and calculators when needed in solving problems where the algebra concepts are applied. 

 

Algebra II

 This course is designed to build on algebraic and geometric concepts.  It develops advanced algebra skills such as systems of equations, advanced polynomials, imaginary and complex numbers, quadratics, and concepts and includes the study of trigonometric functions.  It also introduces matrices and their properties.  The content of this course are important for students’ success on both the ACT and college mathematics entrance exams. 

 

Geometry

This course is designed to emphasize the study of the properties and applications of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions.  It includes the study of transformations and right triangle trigonometry.  Inductive and deductive thinking skills are used in problem solving situations, and applications to the real world are stressed.  It also emphasizes writing proofs to solve (prove) properties of geometric figures.
