Integrated Math I: is year one of an integrated, standards-based program that includes units on the following concepts: linear functions, exponential functions, and an introduction to quadratic functions.

The curriculum builds on the theme of mathematics as sense making. Through investigations of real-life contexts, students will develop a rich understanding of important mathematics which makes sense to them and which, in turn enables them to make sense out of new situations and problems.

Instruction and assessment practices are designed to promote mathematical thinking through the use of engaging problem situations. Both collaborative group and individual work are used as students explore, conjecture, verify, apply, evaluate, and communicate mathematical ideas. Technology, especially the graphing calculator, plays an integral role throughout the curriculum. Students will earn 1 credit for successfully completing this course that can be used toward meeting the graduation requirement of 4 credits in Mathematics.

Integrated Math II: is year two of an integrated, standards-based program that includes units on the following concepts: data analysis, geometric reasoning, congruency, similarity, right triangle trigonomety, and coordinate geometry.

Pre-Calculus: Pre-Calculus is a college intended course that includes the following: circles and circular functions, inverse functions, families of functions and polynomial functions.

The curriculum is designed to further develop the study of elementary functions needed for college mathematics as well as explore more complex mathematical ideas in preparation for college mathematics. The course uses real world applications to encourage students to communicate and justify their algebraic thinking both graphically and symbolically.

Instruction and assessments are designed around the rigor and expectations of a college level math course and are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Technology, especially the graphing calculator, plays an integral role throughout the curriculum. Students will earn 1 credit for successfully completing this course that can be used toward meeting the graduation requirement of 4 credits in Mathematics.

Calculus: Calculus is designed to be taken after the successful completion of pre-calculus and will include units of study on the following topics: Applications of Trigonometry, Trigonometric Identities, Vectors, Limits and Derivatives.

The curriculum is designed to further develop complex mathematical ideas in preparation for college mathematics. The course uses real world applications to encourage students to communicate and justify their algebraic thinking both graphically and symbolically.

Instruction and assessments are designed around the rigor and expectations of a college level math course and are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and the Standards of Mathematical Practices. Technology, especially the graphing calculator, plays an integral role throughout the curriculum. Students will earn 1 credit for successfully completing this course that can be used toward meeting the graduation requirement of 4 credits in Mathematics.

Statistics: Statistics is a fourth level course that includes units on the following topics: Probability models, interpreting categorical data, set theory, counting method, binomial distributions and statistical inferences, and functions modeling change.

This curriculum is designed to dig deep into statistical analysis and uses real world applications to demonstrate the power of statistics in many fields. The students are encouraged to communicate and justify their thinking based off of statistical analysis of data.

Instruction and assessments are designed around the rigor and expectations of a college level math course and are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Technology, especially the graphing calculator, plays an integral role throughout the curriculum. Students will earn 1 credit for successfully completing this course that can be used toward meeting the graduation requirement of 4 credits in Mathematics.

Senior Math: is a self-paced hybrid course which has both online and face-to-face components. In this course, students will build on their previous understanding of statistics and learn about the mathematics involved in personal finance.

As a hybrid course, using the Apex Learning website, students will work through online lessons of real-life contexts with practice and quizzes to assess their learning along the way. Students can work at their own pace and will have a teacher available to provide help and support. Students can work on the lessons and quizzes in class or on their own. All unit tests will be taken in the class with the teacher.

The curriculum for this course builds upon previous studies of making sense of data and understanding statistics in the real world. Students will also be connecting previous learning of functions and equations while learning about personal finance such as wages, compensations, interest, credit cards, debt, income and profit.
