## MATHEMATICS

Courses offered for Math are listed below.

__Algebra I__*Grade:*Ninth

*Prerequisite*

*:*N/A

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

The purpose of this class is to develop the real number system. The class is characterized by the use of variables and operations relating these variables.

__Algebra II__*Grade:*Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra I

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

The purpose of this class is to complete the development of the real number system, which was begun in Algebra I. The first semester will consist of a more intense exploration of concepts learned in Algebra I. During the second semester, the focus will be on extending the concepts learned in the first semester while introducing nonlinear equations, trigonometry, logarithms, probability and statistics, and the complex number system.

__Geometry__*Grade:*Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra I

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

This class will focus on the study of the plane geometry system while reviewing concepts learned in Algebra I. During the last nine weeks, Algebra I concepts will be extended as the real number system is developed further.

__Technical Algebra I__*Grade:*Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra I

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

This course includes material that focuses on arithmetic operations, problem-solving techniques, estimation of answers, measurement skills, geometry, data handling, simple statistics, and the use of algebraic formulas to solve problems. The emphasis of the course is on the ability to understand and apply functional mathematics to solve problems that students might encounter in the work place. The course will employ the use of video, print, hands-on laboratories and practical problem-solving activities.

__Technical Algebra II__*Grade:*Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Technical Algebra I

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

This course is a continuation of Technical Algebra I. It will include work on basic algebra skills, geometry, and an introduction to trigonometry. The course will employ the use of video, hands-on laboratories, and practical problem-solving activities.

__Trigonometry / Pre-Calculus__*Grade:*Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra II

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

Trigonometry is the study of angles, triangles, circular function, and their relationships. Topics covered are: radian and degree measure, trigonometric functions of a circle and a triangle, identities, polar coordinates, and complex numbers. Pre-calculus students will study various topics such as: functions, coordinate geometry, logarithms, probability, statistics, and an introduction to the calculus.

__Calculus__*Grade:*Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Trigonometry / Pre-Calculus

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

The study of calculus has been a core subject area of science and engineering for many years and is now included as an important topic in many other disciplines. The students will study differential and integral calculus.

__Computer Programming__*Grade:*Eleventh, Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra I

*Time:*1 Semester

*Credits:*0.5

This course introduces the student to computer programming in the BASIC language. The student will learn about the hardware of a computer and what to expect of it. The main part of this course will be learning to write computer programs in the BASIC language. The student will also learn applications of the computer programs.

__Math Survey__*Grade:*Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra I

*Time:*1 Semester

*Credits:*0.5

This class serves as a review of algebra topics as well as an introduction to other topics. These other topics include: probability, statistics, and the calculator-based laboratory.

__Advanced Business Math__*Grade:*Twelfth

*Prerequisite*

*:*Algebra I

*Time:*2 Semesters

*Credits:*1.0

This class is designed for students who need one more year of mathematics, but do not want to take Algebra II, Trigonometry, or Calculus. The students will review arithmetic fundamentals that have been previously studied. Throughout the course of study, students use their skills to solve a variety of business problems that demonstrate how widely arithmetic is used in the business world. The range of topics covered also provides students with a broad introduction to the business content and terminology that they will study in greater detail in advanced business classes.
