Mathematics I or Grade 6 Math​

This course builds skills and concepts using incremental instruction, practice and review to ensure mastery of basic mathematical skills. It will prepare students for upper level algebra and geometry.  The course will enhance students’ understanding of ratios, proportional relationships, division of fractions, the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers. Students will write, interpret, and use expressions and equations. They will develop their understanding of statistical thinking.

Mathematics II or Grade 7 Math

This course is designed to prepare students for pre-Algebra. It develops students’ understanding and application of proportional relationships, operations with rational numbers, expressions and linear equations. Students will solve problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions. They will work with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume. They will draw inferences about populations based on samples.

Prerequisites: Mathematics I/p>

Pre-Algebra

We in the Math Department believe in giving attention to the smallest detail to prepare your child for the future using 21st century learning styles, along with formative and summative assessments.

Algebra I

The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The course extends understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Students will be engaged in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. Algebra I topics include relationships between quantities, reasoning with equations, linear and exponential relationships, descriptive statistics, expressions and equations, quadratics functions and modeling

Prerequisites: Mathematics II or Pre-Algebra

Geometry

The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend students’ geometric experiences from the middle grades. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. This course develops a structured mathematical system employing both deductive and inductive reasoning. Students will experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. The course topics include constructions, congruence, similarity, trigonometry, connecting Algebra and Geometry through coordinates, circles, applications of probability, and proofs.

Prerequisites: Algebra I

Algebra II

This course is designed to extend students’ repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions.

Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. Students will experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. The course topics include polynomial, rational, and radical relationships, trigonometric functions, modeling with functions, inferences and conclusions from data.

Prerequisites: Algebra I

Pre-Calculus

This course is designed to extend and integrate concepts from algebra and geometry to prepare students for calculus or college mathematics courses. It enhances students’ ability to make sense of problem situations. The course topics include polynomial, rational, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, inverse and second-degree relations and their graphs, complex numbers, polar coordinates, vectors, sequences and series.

Prerequisites: Algebra II or FST

Functions, Statistics, and Trigonometry (FST)

This course is designed to empower students to further develop and extend their knowledge of mathematics through the integration and application of statistical, trigonometric, and algebraic concepts. It emphasizes connections between various mathematical representations and topics, modeling and applications. It uses technology extensively with an emphasis on graphing calculators.

This course examines a variety of mathematical topics including data analysis, functions, conditional probability, discrete random variables, binomial and normal distributions, trigonometry, and sequences and series.
