Math

Math 6

Students will gain mastery of more challenging topics that build on foundational understandings from elementary school. Concepts are introduced to students in this course to reinforce and advance their algebraic skills  as 21st Century Learners. Topics include solving real-world problems by manipulating fractions and decimals, applying theorems regarding angles formed by intersecting lines, and foundational algebraic concepts such as variables and the distributive property. 

Pre-Algebra

Students will progress through Power Standards that are a prerequisite for advancing into Algebra. Concepts are introduced to students in this course to reinforce and advance their algebraic skills as 21st Century Learners. Throughout the course, these concepts are practiced, reviewed, and connected to real world situations.

Algebra 1

This class offers a steady progression through Power Standards to deliver content in a manageable way for understanding at every level. Concepts are introduced and developed in this course to reinforce and advance their algebraic skills as 21st Century Learners. Topics include solving linear equations and inequalities, graphing points and lines, finding the slope and y-intercept, working with exponent rules, manipulating polynomials (including FOILing), factoring quadratics and working with the quadratic formula.

Geometry

Prerequisite: successful completion of Algebra I
Topics include understanding the basic concepts of a theorem, conditionals, basic constructions, supplementary and complementary angles, parallel lines and transversals, slopes of perpendicular and parallel lines, applications of right triangles, theorems of 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 triangles, right triangle trigonometry, SOHCAHTOA, properties of similar and congruent triangles, formal triangle proofs, simple and complex two- and three-dimensional figures, transformations of figures and scale drawings.

PLEASE NOTE: Geometry is a full-year high school level course. Upon course completion, the course, grade and credit are permanently placed on the student’s high school transcript, which means the grade is calculated into the student’s cumulative high school grade point average (GPA).

Algebra 2

Prerequisite: successful completion of Geometry
This course covers linear and quadratic equations, exponents, radicals and special functions such as logarithmic and polynomial. Students need a graphing calculator (TI-83+ or similar is required) for function graphing, data analysis, simulation and probability.

PLEASE NOTE: Algebra 2 is a full-year high school level course. Upon course completion, the course, grade and credit are permanently placed on the student’s high school transcript, which means the grade is calculated into the student’s cumulative high school grade point average (GPA).

Math Supports

Math Supports provides opportunities for students to work on basic math skills while also improving their problem-solving abilities. Students will have the opportunity to review concepts that are essential for building a high-quality mathematical foundation. Placement is based on the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) test scores, in addition to teacher recommendation.
