Curriculum

Mathematics Options:

• Financial Math: Connecting practical mathematical concepts to personal and business settings, this course offers informative and highly useful lessons that challenge students to gain a deeper understanding of financial math. Relevant, project-based learning activities cover stimulating topics such as personal financial planning, budgeting and wise spending, banking, paying taxes, the importance of insurance, long-term investing, buying a house, consumer loans, economic principles, starting a business, and analyzing business data.

• Pre-Algebra: This course reviews key algebra readiness skills. It introduces basic Algebra 1 work with appropriate support. Student revisit concepts in numbers and operations, expressions and equations, ratios and proportions, and basic functions. By the end of this course, students are ready to begin Algebra 1.

• Algebra I: This course focuses on five critical areas: relationships between quantities and reasoning with equations, linear and exponential relationships, descriptive statistics, expressions and equations, and quadratics functions and modeling. Student will interpret, analyze, compare, and contrast functions that are representing numerically, graphically, and algebraically. Quantitative reasoning is a common thread throughout the course as students use algebra to represent quantities and the relationships among those quantities in a variety of ways.

• Geometry: Mathematical reasoning is introduced with a study of triangle congruence, including exposure to formal proofs and geometric constructions. Students justify and derive various formulas for circumference, area, and volume, as well as cross-sections of solids and rotations of two-dimensional objects. The course closes with a study of set theory and probability to make decisions informed by data analysis.

• Algebra II: This course focuses on functions, polynomials, periodic phenomena, and collecting and analyzing data. The course begins with a review of linear and quadratic functions to solidify a foundation for learning these new functions. Students make connections between verbal, numeric, algebraic, and graphical representations of functions and apply this knowledge as they create equations and inequalities that can be used to model and solve mathematical and real-world problems.
