MATHEMATICS

Title: PRE-ALGEBRA

PREREQUISITES:  Requirement for 7th Grade           

DESCRIPTION:  In 7th grade mathematics, we spend time studying and applying the strands of mathematics and algebra, preparing students for Basic or regular Algebra classes in 8th grade. Students will learn the following outcomes: Equations and Inequalities, Percentage, Ratio and Proportion, Number Sense, Whole Numbers and Fractions, Chance and Data, Measurement, Algebra, Geometry.

ORGANIZATION: Year long


Title: BASIC ALGEBRA

PREREQUISITES:  Students in Grades 8 - 12

DESCRIPTION:  This course emphasizes the “why” of algebra, the theory and underlying structure.  It teaches methods and the reasons behind the methods.  It shows how mathematical skills can be applied to realistic problem solving situations.  This course goes slower and not as deep as Algebra I. Students will develop the knowledge and understanding of mathematical ideas, concepts, and procedures, the ability to solve problems within mathematics and other subject areas, and the ability to reason and think critically.

*** STUDENTS WISHING TO TAKE ALGEBRA II MUST SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE REGULAR ALGEBRA I COURSE. ***

Title: ALGEBRA I

PREREQUISITES:  Students in Grades 8 - 12

DESCRIPTION:  This course emphasizes the “why” of algebra, the theory and underlying structure.  It teaches methods and the reasons behind the methods.  It shows how mathematical skills can be applied to realistic problem solving situations. Students will develop the knowledge and understanding of mathematical ideas, concepts, and procedures, the ability to solve problems within mathematics and other subject areas, and the ability to reason and think critically.

ORGANIZATION:   Year long

Title: ALGEBRA II

PREREQUISITES:  Student in grades 9-12, Algebra I (with letter grade of “C” or better), or teacher approval.

DESCRIPTION:  A strong foundation in Algebra I is essential!  Topics included in the course are: Linear functions, inequalities, quadratic equations, factoring, solving and graphing equations, trigonometric functions, and real life problem solving.

ORGANIZATION:   Year long


Title: GEOMETRY

PREREQUISITES:  Student in grades 9-12, Algebra I (with a grade of C or better), or teacher approval.

DESCRIPTION:  This course emphasizes mathematical reasoning and logical thinking.  Topics included are parallelism, logic, work with triangles, quadrilaterals, and other two-dimensional figures, similarity, coordinate geometry, area and volumes, and real-life problem solving.

ORGANIZATION:   Year long

Title: BASIC GEOMETRY

PREREQUISITES:  Students in grades 9-12 and Algebra I.

DESCRIPTION:  This course emphasizes mathematical reasoning and logical thinking.  Topics included are parallelism, logic, work with triangles, quadrilaterals, and other two-dimensional figures, similarity, coordinate geometry, area and volumes, and real-life problem solving.  

**This course moves slower than the regular geometry course, and does not go into as much depth.

***  STUDENTS WISHING TO TAKE COLLEGE ALGEBRA MUST SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE REGULAR GEOMETRY COURSE. ***

ORGANIZATION: Year long


Title: ALGEBRA III/TRIGONOMETRY

PREREQUISITES:  Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry, with grades of C or better.

DESCRIPTION:  The first semester will focus on the Algebra III concepts.  The main focus will be on conic sections (graphs, equations, and application), polynomials and polynomial equations with their application, exponential and logarithmic functions with their real world use, and probability and statistics. The second semester will focus on trigonometry with the emphasis on using trigonometric functions and their application to real life.

ORGANIZATION:  Year long

Title: PRE CALCULUS

PREREQUISITES:  Students in grades 11 or 12, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry (with a grade of C or better in each course), or teacher approval.  Students must have a non-weighted cumulative GPA of 3.0 in order to receive college credit.

DESCRIPTION:  This course will complete the math sequence designed to prepare students for calculus. Upon completion of this course, the students should be able to perform algebra skills at an increased level of difficulty, solve and graph equations and inequalities, use functions, find the composition of functions and the inverse of a function, solve and graph exponential and logarithmic equations, utilize graphing calculators to solve mathematical problems, solve and graph trigonometric equations and use trig laws and identities, develop the ability to reason and think critically. Other topics include matrices, analytic geometry, statistics and probability, etc.

COURSE OPTION:  College credits: 4 credits at the University of MN – Crookston (must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0)

ORGANIZATION:   Year long


Title: STANDARDS MATH

PREREQUISITES: Basic Algebra or Algebra I

DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to prepare juniors and seniors for the MCA (Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment) exam.  Topics included are:  solving equations, polynomials, exponents, linear equations, ratio & proportion, solving systems of equations, data analysis & probability.
