Pre-Algebra – 1 credit
This course focuses on arithmetic operations, problem-solving techniques, estimation of answers, measurement skills, geometry, data handling, simple statistics, and the use of algebraic formulas to solve problems. The emphasis is on
the ability to understand and apply functional mathematics to solve problems in the world of work. This course will stress real world applications of each concept and skill. It is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
Algebra 1 – 1 credit
This course emphasizes fundamental operations, variables, linear and quadratic equations, radicals, inequalities, polynomials, exponents, powers, and exponential growth. Students learn through reading, problem solving, use of technology and hands-on projects. This course highlights applications and integrates statistics, probability and geometry. It is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
Transitional Algebra – 1 credit (prerequisite Algebra 1)
This course is designed for those students who have had difficulty with Algebra I and need reinforcement of the Algebraic concepts before taking Algebra II and/ or Geometry. This course reviews basic Algebra and will continue with topics necessary to be successful in Algebra II and/or Geometry. It is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
Algebra 2 – 1 credit (prerequisite Algebra 1)
This course emphasizes facility with Algebraic expressions and forms, including linear and quadratic forms, powers and roots, matrices and systems, logarithmic, trigonometric, polynomial and other functions, series and combinations. All concepts are examined as tools for modeling “real world” situations. Graphing is emphasized and geometry is applied. The course is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
Geometry – 1 credit (prerequisite Algebra 1)
This course explores the properties and relationships of lines, rays, angles, triangles, circles, quadrilaterals and other polygons. Deductive and inductive reasoning, as well as algebraic techniques, will be used to solve problems. The
focus of the course will be on practical applications of these principles, although geometric proofs will be introduced. The course is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
Probability and Statistics — (prerequisite Algebra 2 and Geometry)
The main focus of the course will be exploring data, planning a study, producing models using probability theory, and making statistical inferences. Students will work with statistical measures of centrality and spread, probability, methods of data collection, methods of determining probability, binomial and normal distributions, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and technological tools, graphs and models to analyze statistics.
Pre-calculus/Trigonometry – 1 credit (prerequisite Algebra 2 and Geometry)
This course integrates statistical, Algebraic and trigonometric concepts throughout its work with functions. It enables students to display, describe, transform, and interpret numerical information in tables, graphs, or equations. Algebraic and statistical concepts are integrated throughout, and modeling of real phenomena is emphasized. The course is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
Calculus – 1 credit (prerequisite Pre-Calculus)
This course reviews topics from Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry and then integrates those concepts with theories on limits, differentiation and integration, with an emphasis on the applied nature of calculus. Graphing calculators are employed as a problem-solving tool to execute complicated computations and visualize theoretical concepts. The course is aligned to the PA Academic Standards.
