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.

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.
