MATHEMATICS

430000 ALGEBRA I (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS) TERM: YEAR CREDIT: 1

 

The skills you'll acquire in Algebra 1 contain the basic foundation students need for all high school math courses. Students develop algebraic fluency by learning the skills needed to solve equations and perform manipulations with numbers, variables, equations, and inequalities. Upon completion, students will possess the skills and strategies needed for solving real-world applications in multiple real-life scenarios from sports and travel to business and health.

 

431000 GEOMETRY (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS) TERM: YEAR CREDIT: 1

 

Geometry has been used by man since the beginning of time. The ancient pyramids are based on geometrical design. Geometry is everywhere, not just in pyramids. Engineers use geometry to build highways and bridges. Artists use geometry to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on a geometric grid. Throughout this course, students travel a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem solving. Prerequisite: Algebra I or Algebra AB

 

432000 ALGEBRA II (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS) TERM: YEAR CREDIT: 1

 

This course builds on knowledge and skills gained from Algebra 1. Starting with a review of basic algebra, students will travel through quadratic equations, systems of equations, factoring, and polynomial functions. In the second segment, students will venture into the realms of radicals, rational equations, matrices, exponential and logarithmic relations, and land at sequences and series. This course allows students to learn while having fun. Interactive examples help guide students' journey through customized feedback and praise. Prerequisite: Algebra I

 

439050 ADVANCED TOPICS AND MODELING IN MATHEMATICS (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS) TERM: YEAR CREDIT: 1

 

This course builds on Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II to explore mathematical topics and relationships beyond Algebra II. Emphasis will be placed on applying modeling as the process of choosing and using appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze, to better understand, and to improve decisions in analyzing empirical situations. Collection and use of student-generated data should be an aspect of the course. Students will represent and process their reasoning and conclusions numerically, graphically, symbolically, and verbally. Students will be expected to use technology, including graphing calculators, computers, and data gathering equipment throughout the course. Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II.

 

439120 QUANTITATIVE LITERACY (ADE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORKS) TERM: YEAR CREDIT: 1

 

Quantitative literacy further builds on the knowledge and skills mastered in Algebra 1 by exploring and making connections between mathematical topics and the real world. Throughout the course, students will learn to make decisions, evaluate outcomes, and communicate results by choosing, modeling, and using appropriate mathematics and statistics. Students will represent and process their reasoning while gaining proficiency with mathematical technology. Emphasis will be placed on areas of personal and business finance. Prerequisite: Algebra I
