ADVANCED MATH 2 Credits Full Year Course
This class is for students who would like to take a fourth year of math but do not wish to take Calculus. This class is designed to be similar to a College Algebra course. The student will cover topics in Trigonometry, Discrete math, Analytic Geometry, and Algebraic functions. The book uses numerous examples, real-world examples, graphs, diagrams and other illustrations that will help students visualize the concepts.
ALGEBRA I 2 Credits Full Year Course
This is a course extending basic mathematical concepts to the use of variables. Solving problems with an unknown will also be presented. Students assigned to this class must have a sound math background and will improve their logical thinking. This course provides the fundamentals of a standard algebra course: simplifying variable expressions, solving equations, graphing linear and quadratic equations, and problem solving.
BASIC GEOMETRY 2 Credits Full Year Course
Pre-requisite: Pre-algebra or Algebra I - Elective Course
This course is a basic study of geometry. We will cover many of the same topics that we cover in Geometry, but not as in-depth. We also do not do proofs in this class.
CONSUMER/BUSINESS MATH 2 Credits Full Year Course
Juniors and Seniors Only
This course explores the ways in which math is intertwined in business and the lives of everyday consumers.
