General Math

MAT1001 - Full Year
A two-semester course designed to review the basic operations of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and directed numbers. Problem solving, rates, percents, statistics, and basic geometry are also discussed. If a student takes this course a subsequent year, mathematics life skills will be emphasized.

Pre-Algebra
MAT1002 - Full Year
Pre-Algebra is a two-semester course for students who need additional time to prepare for Algebra I. It reviews fundamentals of mathematics, reviews algebraic concepts previously introduced in other math courses, and introduces new math concepts. Topics covered include the four fundamental math operations, order of operation, fraction, decimals, percents, ratio, proportion, exponents, scientific notation, perimeter, area, volume, solving equations and inequalities, graphing and translating real life problems into mathematical sentences.

Algebra 1
MAT1003 - 9th Grade - Full Year
A two-semester course in Algebra designed to give the student a complete foundation in algebraic structure and method. The course covers work in the areas of real numbers, simple and complex equation and problem solving, polynomials, fractions, factoring, graphing, rational and irrational expressions, and quadratic equations and the inequalities.

Algebra 2*
MAT1004 - 10th/11th/12th Grade - Full Year
This elective course is designed to give the student an in-depth study of algebraic concepts. The course covers a review of Algebra I, rational and irrational numbers, radicals, quadratic equations, complex numbers, graphing, exponents, logarithms, permutations, and combinations.
Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry

Geometry*
MAT1005 - Any Grade - Full year
This two-semester course is designed to help students understand the basic structure of geometry, develop powers of special visualization while building their knowledge of the relationships among geometric elements, and grow in the understanding of the deductive method and in an appreciation of the need for precision of language. Students will also strengthen their algebraic skills, gain some knowledge of the methods of coordinate geometry and the way in which algebra and geometry complement each other, and experience the stimulation and satisfaction that comes from clear and creative thinking.
Prerequisite: Algebra I

AP Calculus*
MAT2004 - 12th Grade - Full Year
Calculus is an advanced branch of mathematics that is concerned with limits of function models and with differentiation (slope dy/dx) and integration (area) of the function models and their applications to the functions they model. These topics will help to understand and model some of the wonders of our almighty God. The course is designed for a full year course in calculus I that follows advanced mathematics (pre-calculus) and precedes higher levels of calculus. The skills and objectives will empower you to model and study physical sciences, economics, business, engineering, statistics, or many other problem-solving applications.
Prerequisite: B or higher in Advanced Math

Statistics*
MAT1013 - 11th/12th Grade - Full Year
This course is designed to provide the student with a comprehensive treatment of introductory statistics and probability in such areas as business, sociology, ecology, economics, education, medicine, psychology, and mathematics as well as in our everyday life as consumers. Students in these courses must frequently demonstrate a knowledge of the language and methods of statistics. Methodology and applications have been integrated throughout the course. Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry

Basic Algebra
MAT1016 - 12th Grade - Full Year
This is a two-semester course, which is designed for the student who has completed Algebra 1 and or Geometry, but it is not a requirement. This math course will connect experiences with comprehensive mathematics. The course will use algebra, geometry, trigonometry, linear programming, and optimization techniques to solve problems. This course will show students mathematics is a vital, relevant, flexible tool for interacting with their world in many ways and at many levels, from the commonplace setting of everyday life and work to the frontiers of science and technology.

Honors Pre-Calculus & Trigonometry*
MAT2002 - 11th/12th Grade - Full Year
A two-semester course designed to prepare the student for modern courses in calculus, abstract algebra, and probability. Topics covered are logic, properties of the complete ordered field, mathematical induction sequences and series, algebra of vectors, plane analytical geometry of points and lines, linear and polynomial functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and circular and trigonometric functions and their properties.
Prerequisite: Algebra II

Honors Algebra 2 & Trigonometry*
MAT2006 - 10th/11th/12th Grade - Full Year
An elective course designed to give the student and in-depth study of algebraic concepts and an introduction to trigonometric functions. This course covers rational and irrational numbers, radicals, quadratic equations, complex numbers, graphing, exponents, logarithms, permutations, combinations, trigonometric functions and identities, polar coordinates, and vectors.
Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry

Consumer Mathematics
MAT1006 - 12th Grade - Full Year
This course begins with an extensive look at federal and state income tax forms and filing procedures. Other items covered are auto ownership, purchasing goods, personal income, various areas of banking and banking services, investments, insurance, and housing cost.

AP Statistics* - ONLINE COURSE
MAT2007 - 10th/11th/12th Grade - Full Year
Students explore the statistics of both categorical and quantitative data, constructing and interpreting graphical displays of distributions of univariate and bivariate data (dotplot, stemplot, histogram, cumulative frequency plot, scatter plots, two-way tables), summarizing distributions of univariate data, comparing distributions of univariate data (dotplots, back-to-back stemplots, parallel boxplots), exploring bivariate data, transformations to achieve linearity: logarithmic and power transformations, methods of data collection, planning and conducting experiments, discussing results and types of conclusions that can be drawn from observational studies, experiments, and surveys, probability, combining independent random variables, the normal distribution, properties of the normal distribution, sampling distributions, statistical inference, point estimators and confidence intervals, and tests of significance. Prerequisite: Advanced Algebra
