Courses Offered

 

Algebra I

Algebra I is a study of the language, concepts, and techniques of mathematics that will prepare students to approach and solve problems following a logical succession of steps.  Skills taught in the course prepare students for upper level math and science courses and have practical uses.

 

Algebra II

Algebra II is a course which reviews the concepts taught in Algebra I and begins an investigation of advanced algebraic concepts, including; systems of linear equations, quadratic equations, complex numbers, conic sections, exponential functions and matrices and determinants, and trigonometric functions and vectors.

 

Geometry

Geometry is a mathematical course that will focus on ideas and applications concerning shapes, visualizations, diagrams, and other items and how they can be analyzed and manipulated using mathematical skills of reasoning and numerical operations.  We will draw on other topics addressed in other math classes, including Algebra, such as measurement and equations.  Topics include reasoning, right triangle trigonometry, plane Geometry, similarity, and three-dimensional geometry.

 

Financial Math

This is a “Senior -Only” course for students who have successfully completed Algebra 2, and will count as one of the three mathematic credits required for graduation in the State of Ohio. This course will help students think and reason in an organized manner, as well as gain insights into everyday mathematical problem solving. It includes “real life” topics, such as taxes, personal finance, purchasing, finance, housing, insurance, transportation and investment. This course features expamples in a problem-solving format that allows students to use mathematical skills in consumer situations.
