# ALGEBRA 1 (NCAA Approved)

Algebra 1 is a year long class that covers the district mandated content (GVC) for Algebra 1.  Content covered is as follows:  linear equations (graphing, y=mx+b, slope, parallel and perpendicular, systems of equations);  polynomials (algebraic expressions, radical expressions, operations with polynomials, operations with exponents);  quadratic functions (equations and how they translate to graphs, roots and zeros, square roots, factoring, quadratic formula);  solving equations (multi step, combining like terms etc.)

# GEOMETRY (NCAA Approved)

This course introduces the concepts and principles of “Plane Geometry”.  The student will learn to understand and use common descriptive vocabulary terms and use conventional data interpretation techniques in a variety of academic, business, and social applications.  Topics include:  basic premises of geometry, line/angle relationships, geometric relationships, right triangle trigonometry, and solid properties and measurements.

# ALGEBRA 2 (NCAA Approved)

Continued study of math concepts include linear and quadratic equations, inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions, radicals, imaginary and complex numbers.  Emphasis is placed upon development of thinking skills and successful standardized test completion.

INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA

Intermediate Algebra will cover several advanced topics in order to prepare students for math in college.  This course will also be used for students to earn necessary credit in math toward graduation.  Topics covered include:  graphs and applications of linear, quadratic, polynomial and exponential functions; conic sections; and elementary trigonometry.  Students should be enrolled in or have already completed Algebra 2 to be taking this course.

MATH TOPICS 1

This course is designed for students who need mathematical support in preparation for other mathematics courses.  Students will have the opportunity to communicate mathematically, using oral, written, graphical, and algebraic methods.  Students will estimate and calculate integers, fractions, decimals, percents, exponents, and scientific notation.  Students will be exposed to algebraic variables, expressions, equations, and inequalities and learn how to apply algebraic methods to solve a variety of real-world problems.

MATH TOPICS 2

This course is designed for students who need mathematical support in preparation for upper level mathematics courses. Math Topics 2 covers the basic algebra concepts including evaluating expressions;  solving equations;  polynomials;  linear and quadratic equations;  systems of equations;  radicals;  graphing;  inequalities;  functions;  real numbers;  probability and statistics. This course also includes concepts seen in Geometry including line/angle relationships, geometric relationships, right triangle trigonometry, and solid properties and measurements.

WORKPLACE MATH 1

Workplace Mathematics 1 is a Semester long course designed to meet the needs of students who have struggled with specific areas in basic math. The curriculum is independent and self-paced. Students are given a pretest to ascertain problematic areas. There are seven areas of focus in the course: whole numbers, fractions, multiplication, fraction division, decimals, percentages, and conversion of decimals, fractions and percentages, and a focus of mathematics used in the construction industry workplace
