4 credits of math in high school, one of which shall be the equivalent to or higher than the level of Algebra II

This courses focuses on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout this course and, together with the content standards, prescribe mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes sense of problem situations.

This course focuses on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout this course and, together with the content standards, prescribe mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes sense of problem situations.

Students will learn several topics in mathematics including but not limited to: writing, solving, and graphing linear and quadratic equations, including systems of two linear equations in two unknowns; solving quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, graphically, or by application of the quadratic formula; and the study of monomial and polynomial expressions, inequalities, exponents, functions, rational expressions, ratio, and proportion. Algebraic skills are applied in a wide variety of problem-solving situations

Course emphasizing an abstract, formal approach to the study of geometry, include topics such as properties of plane and solid figures; deductive reasoning and use of logic; geometry as an axiomatic system including the study of postulates, theorems, and formal proofs; rules of congruence, similarity, parallelism, and perpendicularity; and rules of angle measurement in triangles, including trigonometry, coordinate geometry, and transformational geometry. Review topics: basic measurement, perimeter, area, volume, and inductive methods of reasoning.

This course reviews the algebraic skills of factoring and special products acquired in Algebra I. The course then continues the teaching of the concepts introduced in Algebra in a more concentrated study. In addition, the course will include working with complex numbers, trigonometric functions, progressions, binomial expansions, polynomial functions as well as introduction to permutations, combinations, and probability. An understanding of the Graphing calculators will be introduced.

Students will learn several topics in mathematics including but not limited to: bad debt, importance of spending plans, non-traditional financial services, being an informed consumer, buying stocks, sell strategy, mutual fund options, investing in education, planning for the future, purchasing your first home, taxes and tax planning, life insurance options, health insurance, property insurance, estate planning, and keeping money in perspective.

Pre-calculus is a college and technical school preparatory course which covers essentially the same topics covered in trigonometry and an advanced college algebra course. Students will learn several topics in mathematics including but not limited to: circular functions, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic functions, function analysis and applications.

This course aligns to the high school standards for Algebra I and Geometry with an emphasis on application in a contextual environment through applications. This course should allow the students to apply the concepts learned in Algebra I and Geometry and should not be the first time students learn these concepts. The critical areas deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships through analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. The course expands and explores more complex geometric situations and geometric relationships. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are interwoven with the content standards throughout the course, prescribing that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
