# Math

## Algebra I

Students will demonstrate mastery of the standards developed from the Georgia and National standards as prescribed for 9th grade Algebra I students. The following topics will be mastered: foundations of Algebra, solving equations, solving inequalities, introduction to functions, linear equations, exponents and exponential functions, polynomials and factoring, radical expressions and equations, rational expressions and functions.

## Algebra I Honors

Students will demonstrate mastery of the standards developed from the Georgia and National standards as prescribed for 9th grade Algebra I students. The following topics will be mastered: foundations of Algebra, solving equations, solving inequalities, introduction to functions, linear equations, exponents and exponential functions, polynomials and factoring, radical expressions and equations, rational expressions and functions.

Honors classes will cover the same content as regular algebra I classes with added depth and challenge.

## Algebra II

Algebra II is the second course in basic algebra that includes broad standards in more depth than Algebra 1 as well as introducing new concepts leading to more advanced mathematics including trigonometry, calculus, and statistics.

Topics of Study: Unit 1: Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities; Unit 2: Graphs, Relations, and Functions; Unit 3: Systems of Equations; Unit 4: Quadratic Equations and Functions; Unit 5: Polynomial Expressions and Functions; Unit 6: Radical Expressions, Equations, and Functions; Unit 7: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Unit 8: Rational Expressions and Equations.

## Geometry

Geometry is designed to be the third course following Algebra 1 and 2. Course content includes: tools for geometry; parallel and perpendicular lines; congruent triangles; relationships within triangles; polygons and quadrilaterals; similarity and proportions; right triangle trigonometry; transformations; areas of various two-dimensional figures; surface areas and volumes of three-dimensional figures; circles and parts of circles; periodic functions and trigonometry.

Honors classes will cover the same content as the regular geometry classes with greater depth and challenge. They will also be exposed to more precalculus concepts.

## College Readiness

College Readiness Mathematics is a fourth course option for students who have completed Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II, but are still struggling with high school mathematics standards essential for success in first year post-secondary mathematics courses required for non-STEM majors. The course is designed to serve as a bridge for high school students who will enroll in non-STEM post-secondary study and will serve to meet the high school fourth course graduation requirement. The course has been approved by the University System of Georgia as a fourth mathematics course beyond Algebra II or Advanced Algebra for non-STEM majors, so the course will meet the needs of college bound seniors who will not pursue STEM fields. College Readiness Mathematics focuses on key content and practice standards to ensure that students will be ready for post-secondary academic courses and career preparation in non-STEM fields. The course will revisit and expand the understanding of content standards introduced in earlier mathematics courses and will emphasize numeracy, algebra and functions, geometry, and statistics in a variety of contexts.

## College Algebra 133

A study of algebra including absolute values, equations and inequalities, complex numbers, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of equations and inequalities, matrices, and conic sections. This course should help students improve their abilities to observe carefully, think critically and communicate clearly. More specifically, upon completion of this course, the students should be able to solve a linear equation, solve a quadratic equation, find the zeros of a polynomial function, and solve an exponential equation.

## College Precalculus 143

Preparation for calculus, including an intensive study of algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions and their graphs. In addition, the course will cover an introduction to Calculus focusing on Limits.

## College Calculus 334

Introductory differential calculus and its applications. Topics include limits; continuity; differentiability; derivatives of polynomials, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions with applications; and antiderivatives.

## College Calculus 344

Introductory integral calculus and its applications. Topics include Riemann Sums, the Riemann integral, the fundamental theorem of calculus, techniques of integration, arc length, surface area, volumes, force, work and an introduction to differential equations.

## College Statistics 253

This class will include basic ideas in statistics: frequency distributions and their graphic representation, measures of central tendency and variation, probability theory, the binomial distribution, the normal distribution, correlation, and sampling. This class will help students improve their abilities to observe carefully, think critically, and communicate clearly. More specifically, upon completion of this course, students should be able to use a graphing calculator to solve problems from descriptive and inferential statistics; construct and draw a variety of graph types to display and analyze data; compute measures of central tendency including mean, median, mode, weighted average, and trimmed mean; compute measures of variation including range and standard deviation for samples and populations; determine the correlation of compared date; compute the probability of simple and compound events.
