Algebra 1: In this course, you will have the opportunity to practice what you learn through participation in class activities, testing your acquisition of knowledge, and working through practice problems reflecting each topic’s lecture.  This year long course is designed to equip students with a working knowledge of basic algebraic concepts with a strong emphasis on problem-solving skills. Grade 9 (Credits 5)

Geometry: This course is designed to develop the powers of spatial visualization while building knowledge of the relationships among geometric elements. The course content includes basic elements and definitions of geometry; as well as inductive and deductive reasoning. Students should come prepared with the knowledge taught in Algebra 1 and previous math courses. Grades 9-11 (Credits 5)

Geometry Honors: In addition to the content covered in the basic Geometry course, this class is an in-depth exploration of Euclidean Geometry.  Emphasis is placed on the ability to reason logically and create solid proofs in multiple proof formats.  Extensive analysis is conducted on relationships between parallel and perpendicular lines and angles, triangle congruence and similarity are; properties of specific quadrilaterals and parallelograms; volumes, areas, and perimeters of geometric shapes and solids.  Students will need a compass, protractor, and ruler to complete constructions and transformations for this class. Grades 9-11 (Credits 5)

Algebra 2 and Algebra 2 Honors: is a graphing intensive course that explores the key mathematical functions (linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational and radical) and their transformations and begins students on the path to Calculus. The differences between the college prep and honors sections of this course are reflected in the number and depth of questions on assessments and additional learning targets for the honors section. Algebra 2 Honors is a semester course that allows students to accelerate learning and move into Precalculus in the spring semester. Grades 10-11 (Credits 5)

Advanced Algebra DE: This course introduces students to fundamental concepts of Algebra including sets, equations and inequalities, functions and graphs, polynomials, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, linear inequalities, and linear programming and fosters competencies in analytical reasoning, conceptual understanding and problem solving. Prerequisite: Contemporary Math 101 or equivalent. Grades 11-12 (Credits 3).

Pre-Calculus DE: This spring semester course serves as the steppingstone from Algebra 2 to Calculus. It can also be taken for college credit as a dual enrollment course. Topics covered include matrices, conic sections, trigonometry, probability and statistics, sequences and series, modeling and polar coordinates. Students will also be introduced to the concept of infinitesimals at the end of the course in preparation for Calculus. Grades 11-12 (Credits 5) +DE credits (3)

Calculus DE: this semester course covers the two main topics of differentiation and integration (anti-differentiation). The ideas of infinity, infinitesimals, area under curves, volumes and applications of calculus (to concepts such as velocity, acceleration and other rates) will be explored. Students will also learn appropriate use and mistrust of graphing calculators. The AP Exam is a required part of this course. Grade 12 (Credits 5) + DE credits (3)

Financial Literacy/Consumer Math: This consumer mathematics course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive study of the mathematics used in consumer decision making for the present time and in the future. Calculator usage will be taught to enable the student to perform advanced calculations and enhance problem solving skills. Topics taught include banking skills, purchases, insurance, investments, and taxes. Students who successfully complete the Consumer mathematics course will be able to solve practical and functional math problems as related to everyday situations. Grades 11 – 12 (Credits 5)

Foundations of Personal Finance (High School College Prep-A and College Dual Enrollment ECON110): Introduction to Personal Finance shows how Christians should take responsibility for their personal finances in all areas including tithing. Discussions include the evolution of the use of credit and how knowledge and behavior are important in this area; methods of savings plans including 401Ks and IRAs; tithing and giving to charity is included It also enables the students to learn about all aspects of a checkbook, the differences between debit and credit cards, the basic income tax forms and laws, all types of insurance and investments.  The course provides Information on the ways in which a student can go to college without accumulating massive debt. Dual enrollment is available for qualified students. Grade 12 (Credits 3)
