Math Education


This course discusses the topics of decimals, fractions, percents, proportions, geometry, data analysis, statistics, and probability. Integers, algebra, and graphing in the coordinate plane are also introduced. Problem solving is emphasized throughout the course. This course will continue preparing students for Algebra.


This course continues preparation for Algebra I. This course discusses the topics of integers, rational numbers, real numbers, proportions, percents, expressions, equalities, and inequalities. Additional topics include graphing formulas, and probability and statistics. Basic geometry such as area, volume, circumference, perimeter, etc., are covered as well.


(2 Semesters)* 11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisites: Geometry and Algebra II
Quality Point Class
*requires each student to own a graphing calculator
This is a two-semester course in which the concepts from Algebra II are expanded. Pre-calculus prepares the student for calculus or college math courses by an in-depth study and application of: the families and nature of these functions; linear, polynomial, rational, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic. The graphing calculator is an integral, part of this course.

Prerequisites: Pre-Calculus
Quality Point Class

*requires each student to own a graphing calculator
This course is designed for students that have completed the full college-preparatory math sequence. The course begins with a review of the functions studied in the Pre-calculus class. This includes classifications of these functions and manipulations performed on these functions in the (x,y) coordinate plane. The study of Calculus concepts then begins with the introduction of limits of a function at various x-values within the domain of said function. From the study of limits come the analysis of continuity within a function and the development of the derivative for the classification of that function and, in general, for all functions existing within that function's classification. The course continues with theoretical and real-life applications of the integrals. In preparation for the study of integrals, approximation methods for finding area of regions in the (x,y) coordinate plane are studied. The concepts of limits, derivatives, and area approximations are then tied in to develop the Riemann integral. Techniques for integration will be investigated. Integration will then be applied in finding solutions to physical and geometrical problems. The concepts in this course will be investigated analytically (through the use of algebraic manipulations), graphically (through the use of graphing calculators), numerically (through an integrated use of real-life data), and verbally.

Probability and Statistics

(2 Semesters) *11-12
1 Credit

Prerequisite: Algebra II or teacher consent
This is a course designed for the average math student. The first semester includes an overview of statistical terms, the different types of statistics, data collection and sampling techniques, and the uses and measures of statistics. The student studies and interprets and constructs frequency distributions, histograms, frequency polygons, ogives, pie charts, pareto charts, and stem and leaf plots. Measures of central tendency, variation, and position will be studied. Students will work with the probability and counting rules, and probability distributions. The second semester is an in-depth study which includes the properties and applications of: the Normal Distribution and the Standard Normal Distribution; confidence Intervals and sample size; Hypothesis testing; correlation and regression; chi-square tests; and analysis of variance. The students will be using the graphing calculator and the Microsoft Excel program. This is an excellent choice for the student who wants to hone their math skills and improve their ability to understand information thrown at consumers and citizens daily. This course uses a college text and requires work.


(2 Semesters) *9-10-11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisite: Algebra 1

This course is designed to develop sound, deductive reasoning ability through the use of geometric figures, both plane and spatial, and emphasizing relationships between similar and congruent figures. These concepts require abstract reasoning capability and mastery of important definitions, postulates, and theorems. These tools are used to demonstrate and analyze geometric concepts by presenting careful argumentation in the form of proofs. Topics included in the course of study are: points, lines, angles, perpendicular and parallel lines and planes, congruent and similar polygons, right triangles, circles, and basic constructions.


(2 Semesters) *9-10
1 Credit
A two-semester course designed to prepare students for Algebra I. The students will learn the basic tools of Algebra, including variables, integers, equations, and story problems. A general review of mathematics also takes place.

General Math

(2 Semesters)* 10-11-12
1 Credit

General Math, is a class where basic math skills and concepts are presented. Examples illustrate math concepts and are followed by related practice problems on computational skills, calculator skills and problem solving skills. Students spend time doing relevant and practical math problems.

The basic skills of computation, fractions, decimals, percentages, geometry, algebra, estimation, graphs and money are all reviewed and put into everyday life situations.

Algebra I

(2 Semesters)* 9-10
1 Credit
This course is designed for the average to above average math student. The first semester discusses the system of real numbers. Students learn the properties of sets, how to carry out the operation of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with positive and negative numbers, how to solve first-degree equations and inequalities, and how to graph relations. The second semester includes a unit on the solution of systems of linear equations and systems of linear inequalities, word problems, factoring, and working with rational expressions. This course will be assigned to some eighth students based on their Iowa Algebra aptitude test results and teacher recommendations.

Algebra II (2 Semesters) *10-11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisite: Algebra I
A two-semester course in which the concepts from Algebra I are reviewed and developed in greater depth. Algebra II expands on the properties and operations of complex numbers, rational expressions, linear and quadratic equations, and systems of two and three equations. Some trigonometry is also covered.
