General Mathematics NC 5111/5112 - (9,10,11,12)
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 NC 5121 - (9,10,11,12)
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 I 5123 - (9)
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.
Geometry* 5133 - (9,10,11,12)
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)
Algebra II* 5126 - (10,11,12)
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)
Algebra II and Trigonometry* H 5127 - (10,11,12)
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)
Advanced Mathematics* H LTC 5157 - (11,12)
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)
Statistics & Data Analysis* 5195 - (11,12)
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 every day 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) Limit 25
Consumer Mathematics NC 5117 (12)
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.
Mathematics Connections NC 5118 (12)
This is a one-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.
