Math Class

MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT


Algebra I:

Basic algebraic skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of integers,
equation solving, word problems, graphing of linear and quadratic equations, inequalities, statistics and
simplifying polynomials.



Informal Geometry/Data Analysis:

This course covers basic geometry, graphing, statistics, and probability at a slower pace without formal proofs. Students will have plenty of opportunity to review and use algebraic concepts as they study geometry. This class is recommended for those students who do not plan to take Algebra II. This class is not recommended for college bound students.


Plane Geometry: This mathematics course deals with the study of points, lines, and planes. The course
consists of proving theorems and applying these real life problems. There is also some construction of
geometric figures. Algebra I is a prerequisite for this course. It is recommended that the student have a C
average in Algebra I before taking Plane Geometry.


Algebra I A:

This is a full year course. This course will concentrate on the material covered in the first half
of Algebra I. This class will also help prepare students for topics that will be on the OGT.


Algebra I B:

This is a full year course. This course will concentrate on the material covered in the second
half of Algebra I. The class will also help prepare students for topics that will be on the OGT.


Algebra II:

This course will have a review of Algebra concepts. Some of the topics reviewed will include
linear equations/inequalities. Other topics covered will be matrices, determinants, working with
polynomials, radicals, quadratic functions, and polynomial functions. The last part of the course will have
an introduction to conic sections, rational expressions, and rational equations.


Advanced Algebra II (Weighted):

This course will have a quick review of Algebra I topics. Topics
reviewed will include linear equations/inequalities and systems of linear equations/inequalities. Other topics
covered in this course will be matrices, determinants, working with polynomials, radicals, quadratic
functions (using quadratic formula), complex numbers, polynomial functions, rational expressions,
logarithms, statistics, and some basic trigonometry.


Pre-Calculus:

One full year. Pre-Calculus is a course designed to prepare college-bound students for a first
course in calculus. The topics covered are a prerequisite for calculus. Intermediate algebra, analytic
geometry, trigonometry, and statistics are integrated with other important topics in mathematics by an
approach that stresses functions. A student should have at least a "C" average in Advanced Algebra to take
this course. Prerequisites: Advanced Algebra.


Calculus:

This course is designed for students planning on majoring in engineering, life sciences,
economics and business, physical sciences and mathematics. Content includes functions, continuity of
19 functions, limits, differentiation and integration of functions, trigonometric functions and logarithmic and
exponential functions. Wherever practical concepts are developed from graphical, numerical and algebraic
perspectives to give students a full understanding of calculus.
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus or Trigonometry


Practical Math:

This mathematics course is for seniors only. The content of the course is related to real
world applications. It includes: a review of fundamentals, earning income, personal banking, budgeting,
making cash and credit card purchases, loans, transportation, housing costs. ACT/SAT preparation will also
be covered.


Applied Mathematics:

This is a year long- course (one credit) designed for students enrolled in vocational
programs. Mathematical calculations, problem solving, and technical math skills are presented as they
relate to a specific vocational-technical area of study


OGT Math Intervention:

This course is designed for juniors and seniors who have not passed the math
portion of the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT): This class will count toward credits needed for graduation, but
will not fulfill the math requirements to graduate. (½ credit – Semester Course)


OGT Math Peer Tutoring:

This course is designed only for juniors and seniors who passed all parts of the
Ohio Proficiency Test and/or Ohio Graduation Test (OGT).Algebra I and Geometry are the prerequisites
for this course. It is also recommended that the student be enrolled in their third math requirement. This
class does not count toward the three core math requirements needed for graduation. This class is an
elective worth ½ credit-per semester. It is recommended that the student have a sufficient understanding of
those course materials. This class will help students realize the importance of helping students achieve
success in proficiency areas. The students will work hand in hand with the classroom teacher to help other
students obtain understanding of proficiency related information in deficient areas.
(½ credit-Semester Course)

To graduate you need 3 units of mathematics, including Algebra I, Algebra II, and
Geometry


Math Club:

There are many math related things going on in this school. Not only is there several extra math classes to satisfy your math needs, there is also a math club you could join. All you need to get in math club is to be in Algebra 1 or above and to pay a due of $5.00. The math club raffles of a Christmas Wreath every year and have community service such as The Relay for Life and The March of Dimes.
