```							                                     MATHEMATICS

*Prerequisite: Grade of 75 or above in Math 8 and teacher signature.
Algebra 1 teaches students to solve problems by representing the given information using
numbers, variables and other symbols. These numbers, variables and other symbols are then
transformed by the student into equations, which must be solved using proper mathematical
techniques, which are taught in the course.

Geometry - Grade 9 or 10
*Prerequisite: Grade of 75 or above in Algebra 1 and teacher signature.
This course will cover basic geometry concepts and an introduction to reasoning and
proof. It will also cover properties of parallel lines, congruent triangles, polygons and
quadrilaterals, similar triangles, coordinate geometry, and circles. Geometry will work with
formulas for finding surface area and volume.

Algebra 2 - Grade 10 or 11
*Prerequisite: Grade of 75 or above in Algebra 1, successful completion of Geometry and teacher signature.
Algebra 2 is a sequential course to follow Geometry and should be taken by all math and
science majors and other persons going to college or into various nursing, medical, or technical
programs. Algebra 2 takes basic concepts from Algebra 1 and Geometry, builds upon them and
expands to include a careful study of our entire complex number system, graphing, and
coordinate geometry.

Algebra 3/Trigonometry
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2 and Geometry and teacher signature.
This course consists of the study of equations, inequalities, conic sections, trig functions,
circular function, logarithms, identities, and the application of these things. This course is a dual
enrollment course with Keystone College.

AP Calculus
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 3/Trig and teacher signature.
Calculus is the mathematics of change and motion. Calculus is used increasingly to
model problems in the fields of business, biology, medicine, and political science.
Calculus provides methods for solving two large classes of problems. The first of these
involves finding the rate at which a variable quantity is changing. When a body travels in a
straight line, its distance from its starting point changes with time and we ask how fast it is
moving at any given instant. Differential calculus is the branch of calculus that treats such
problems.
On the other hand, if we are given the velocity of a moving body at every instant of time,
we may seek to find the distance it has moved as a function of time. This is the second type of
problem, that of finding a function when its rate of change is known. This type of calculus is
called integral calculus.
Students must take the AP examination in May after completing the course. The cost of
the exam will be paid by the school district. This course is a dual enrollment course with
Keystone College.

Intro to Statistics
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2 or Applied Algebra 2 and/or teacher signature.
The course will cover basic statistical information, frequency distributions, statistical
descriptions, probabilities, rules of probability, distributions, normal distribution and sampling.
Students will learn to understand and interpret statistical measures and statements concerning
probabilities and odds.

Applied Math 1 - Grade 9
*Prerequisite: Must have teacher signature.
This class is the first course of a three-year sequence. It will cover the concepts that are
covered in the first two-thirds (2/3) of Algebra 1. It will have students working with real-world
problems associated with the content areas.

Applied Math 2 - Grade 10 Starting in 2012-2013
*Prerequisite: Must have teacher signature.
This class is the second course of a three course sequence. It will cover the concepts that
are in the last one-third (1/3) of Algebra I and the first one-third (1/3) of Geometry. Like the
other applied courses, it will have students work with real-world problems associated with the
content area.

Applied Math 3 - Grade 11 Starting in 2013-2014
*Prerequisite: Must have teacher signature.
This class is the third course of a three course sequence. It will cover the concepts that
are covered in the last two-thirds (2/3) of Geometry. Like the other applied courses, it will have
students work with real-world problems associated with the content area.

*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Applied Algebra 1A or by teacher signature.
This course will cover basic geometry concepts and an introduction to reasoning and
proof. It will also cover properties of parallel lines, congruent triangles, polygons and
quadrilaterals, similar triangles, coordinate geometry, and circles. Applied Geometry will work
with formulas for finding surface area and volume. Like the other applied courses, it will have
students work with real-world problems associated with the content area.

Applied Algebra 1B - Grade 11
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Applied Algebra 1A and Applied Geometry.
This course is a continuation of Applied Algebra 1A. This course will cover the
following concepts that are covered in the second half of Algebra I. As Applied Algebra 1A did,
Applied Algebra 1B will have students work with real-world problems associated with the
content areas.
Applied Algebra 2 - Grade 12
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Applied Math series or by teacher signature.
This course will cover some of the concepts that are covered in the Algebra II curriculum,
including the following: analyzing equations and inequalities, graphing linear relations and
functions, solving systems of linear equations and inequalities, using matrices, exploring
course will also cover topics related to financing and consumer mathematics that students will
need to successful in everyday life

Elementary Statistics
*Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2 or Applied Algebra 2 and/or teacher signature.
The course will cover basic statistical information, frequency distributions, statistical
descriptions, probabilities, rules of probability, normal distribution and sampling. Students will
learn to understand and interpret statistical measures and statements concerning probabilities and
odds. The pace will be less intense than the Intro to Statistics course.

Math S.A.T. Preparation
This course is designed to familiarize the students with the types of questions and
mathematical concepts that appear on the mathematics portion of the S.A.T. The scoring method
will also be discussed as will “intelligent” guessing. Previous S.A.T. tests will be provided to the
students and all the math sections will be worked in class. This will review all the important
topics and concepts usually appearing on the exam.
