4 Offered as a credit recovery course only Algebra l Grade: 9-12MA1A1A / MA1A1B Credit: 1The focus of Algebra l is to develop in the ability to work with linear functions and quadratic functions. The student will use these functions to develop relationships among the different types of functions and to understand the attributes of the function. The student will analyze functions graphically, verbally, numerically, and symbolically. Included in the Algebra course is a study of the attributes and properties of polynomials, exponents, irrational numbers, inequalities, and square roots and their connection to functions. The use of the graphing calculator is a major component in the teaching of this course.Back to flow chartRequired course for all diploma plans, distinguished, recommended and minimumOffered as a credit recovery course only

6 Required course for distinguished and recommended diploma plans Geometry Grade: 9-12MA1GEA / MA1GEB Credit: 1Prerequisite: Algebra lGeometry is designed to develop an understanding of the basic structure of plane and spatial geometry. Students will develop the ability to analyze geometric relationships, make and verify conjectures, apply logical reasoning to justify and prove mathematical statements, and use a variety of representations to describe geometric relationships and solve problems. This course allows students to apply algebraic skills in a logical and concrete manner.Back to flow chartRequired course for distinguished and recommended diploma plansSee Geometry Pre-AP/IB slide before deciding which course is right for you.
7 Geometry Pre-AP/IB Grade: 9-12 MA2GEA / MA2GEB Credit: 1Prerequisite: Algebra lThis course takes all of the goals of the regular Geometry course and further explores the content with an emphasis on problem solving in a multi-step format. Strategies and testing using the AP and IB formats are alternated with the intent of preparing students to enter our AP upper mathematics program or our IB program of mathematics. The student must abide by AHS registration and drop policies.Back to flow chartGeometry (on-level or Pre-AP/IB) is a required course for distinguished and recommended diploma plans.Pre-AP/IB places a greater emphasis on problem solving and proofs than on-levelStudents choosing Geometry Pre-AP/IB should have a strong work ethic, be motivated, able to transfer previously learned material and willing to ask for help.

In order for this course to count as one of the four math credits required by the State, both semesters must be successfully completed and the credit earned before Algebra II may be taken.Meant to strengthen concepts learned in Algebra I and geometryMUST be taken prior to Algebra II to count as a one of the four math creditsApproximately one-third of the course will be spent covering consumer math topics.
9 Required course for distinguished and recommended diploma plans Algebra ll Grade: 10-12MA1A2A / MA1A2B Credit: 1Prerequisite: Algebra l and GeometryThis course allows students to continue their study of algebraic concepts that began in Algebra I and applied in Geometry in order to better understand the connections between them with the purpose of understanding the structure of Algebra and its connections to Geometry. The study of functions, equations and their relationships is central to all of mathematics and further pursued in this course. Students continually use problem-solving, language and communication, and reasoning to make these connections within and outside of mathematics.Back to flow chartRequired course for distinguished and recommended diploma plansSee Algebra II Pre-AP/IB slide before deciding which course is right for youStudents who did well in Algebra 1 tend to be successful in this course.

22 One year math course based on a 5.0 GPA IB Math Studies Grade: 11-12MA4MSA / MA4MSB Credit: 1Prerequisite: Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra IIThe math Studies SL course gives a sampling of several math topics that are offered in college. These include, but are not limited to, the history of mathematics, trigonometry, statistics, number theory, and calculus,. The course is offered to students with varied backgrounds and abilities. It is designed to build confidence and encourage an appreciation of mathematics in students, some of whom do not anticipate a need for mathematics in their future studies. The key objective of this course is to introduce students to mathematical concepts and principles through the development of various techniques, allowing for the possibilities of the practical and real-world application of the subject. Assessments will include the following items: class work exercises, homework assignments, quizzes, exams, class projects, midterm and final exams. A key component of the mathematics studies course will be the IB project, in which the student will produce a piece of written work based on personal research that is guided and supervised by the teacher and cumulative written exam.Back to flow chartOne year math course based on a 5.0 GPAWill fulfill the math component needed for IB diploma; however, the course is open to all seniors that have completed Algebra II. (Juniors must be full IB diploma candidates.)Full IB candidates must complete the IB project and 2 external cumulative assessmentsThe workload and commitment for this course will be the same as other IB courses
23 Statistics. Grade: 10-12 MA1STA / MA1STB Statistics Grade: MA1STA / MA1STB Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry (May be taken concurrently.)
