Integrated Math 3
This course combines Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry to give students that need more reinforcement before taking Algebra 2.
Algebra 2 reinforces concepts of Algebra I and includes relations and functions, polynomial functions, and exponential and logarithmic functions. An emphasis will include applications of algebra in problem solving. This course provides opportunities for students to develop the math skills needed for success in their career and in Algebra 2 or Pre-Calculus.
Algebra 3 is a high school level mathematics course which provides opportunities for students to develop the math skills needed for success in their career and in Pre-Calculus and Calculus. In this course, students will explore and solve mathematical problems, think critically, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly. Selected topics from algebra and trigonometry will be interwoven with geometry, logical reasoning, measurement, statistics, and probability.
Geometry is the mathematical study of our physical world. Geometry includes the study of points, lines, planes, circles, angles, triangles, rectangles, area, and volume. Geometry helps to develop the ability to think critically while concepts are applied to real life situations.
This course is intended to serve the needs of students who have completed Algebra 2 or Integrated Algebra 2, preparing them for a successful career and college experience. The course focuses on reinforcing and extending skills in Number Sense, Algebra, Functions, Probability, and Statistics, with a further emphasis on the use of application-based experiences involving decision making in an every day or professional setting. The course is supported, and enriched, by the use of multiple technological resources.
Pre-Calculus (college credit available)
Pre-Calculus is designed for the college-bound student who wishes to eventually continue their study in calculus. This course allows students to explore elements of trigonometry, functions, series and sequences, logarithms, algebra, and geometry in preparation for advanced coursework in calculus at either the high school or college level. Students are strongly encouraged to obtain a graphing calculator.
Students who meet the qualification requirements may enroll and will earn high school credit for math as well as 4 semester hours of credit from Ohio University-Lancaster. Prerequisite: B average in Algebra 2 and placement at the appropriate college level on the COMPASS test.
Calculus (college credit available)
Calculus is a college level course in introductory calculus which includes concepts in elementary functions. This course provides opportunities for students to receive college credit as well as high school credit. It is intended for students who have a thorough knowledge of college preparatory mathematics, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and pre-calculus. A graphing calculator is required for this course.
Students who meet the qualification requirements may enroll in this dual academic course. Successful students will earn high school credit for math as well as 4 semester hours of credit from Hocking College. Prerequisite: C or better average in Pre-Calculus and placement at the appropriate college level on the COMPASS test.
This full-year course studies the collection, organization, interpretation and analysis of data that apply to the real world, such as economic, scientific, athletic and political situations. There will be a focus on standard normal distributions, hypothesis testing, and correlation and causation. This course has a pre-requisite of Alegbra 2.
