Mathematics Course Descriptions

Mathematics Department

Grade Level: 9 Integrated Math Credit: 1

The focus of this course is to increase students skill sets for success in Algebra 1. Algebraic topics include solving one-variable equations, solving one-variable inequalities, an introduction to functions, writing equations of lines, and solving systems of equations and inequalities.

Next course: Algebra 1 Recommended Calculator: TI-84 Plus

Grade Level: 9, 10 Algebra I Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Teacher’s Signature

This is the first course and the building block of Algebraic study. The focus of the course is on Linear Equations and Inequalities, Exponents and Exponential Functions, Polynomials and Quadratic Equations, and Data Analysis and Probability. Students are required to take and pass an Ohio end-of-course assessment in this class.

Next course: Geometry. Recommended Calculator: TI-84 Plus

Grade Level: 9, 10, 11 Geometry Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Teacher’s Signature & Algebra 1

This course extends Algebra 1 into the study of shapes. Students should have a basic understanding of area, surface area and volume prior to taking the class. The course focuses on deductive and inductive reasoning in geometric situations. Topics include lines, triangles, polygons and quadrilaterals, similarity and congruence, right triangle trigonometry, transformations, circles, and probability. Students are required to take and pass an Ohio end-of course assessment in this class.

Next course: Algebra 2 or Pre-Calculus, determined by teacher recommendation. Recommended Calculator: TI-84 Plus

Grade Level: 9 HP Geometry Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Teacher’s Signature & Algebra 1

This is a rigorous course in the study of geometry, with a heavy influence of proof. The course focuses on lines, triangles, polygons and quadrilaterals, similarity and congruence, area, surface area, volume, trigonometry, transformations, circles and probability. Students are required to take and pass an Ohio end-of-course assessment in this class.

Next course: Honors Algebra 2 determined by teacher recommendation. Recommended Calculator: TI-84 Plus
