Algebra I provides a formal development of the algebraic skills
and concepts necessary for students who will take other advanced
college-preparatory courses. In particular, the instructional
program in this course provides for the use of algebraic skills in
a wide range of problem-solving situations. The concept of function
is emphasized throughout the course. Topics include: (1) properties
of real numbers, (2) solution sets, (3) basic operations with
polynomials, (4) solving quadratic equations and systems, (5) use
of exponents, and (6) introductory topics from statistics and
probability.

Geometry is an integrated math course based on Indiana's
Academic Standards in math. Geometry provides students with
experiences that deepen the understanding of shapes and their
properties. Deductive and inductive reasoning as well as
investigative strategies in drawing conclusions are stressed.
Properties and relationships of geometric figures include the study
of: (1) angles, (2) lines, (3) planes, (4) congruent and similar
triangles, (5) trigonometric ratios, (6) polygons, and (7) circles
and spatial drawings. An understanding of proof and logic is
developed. Use of graphing calculators and computer drawing
programs is encouraged. This course would ideally be taken by
students whose post-secondary plans may include military, trade
school, and/or apprenticeship, and are unsure about their
post-secondary plans, or are seeking to take grade level
coursework. **Pre-requisite:** Algebra I

algebra; (2) polynomials and polynomial functions; (3) rational
exponents; (4) the complex numbers, sequences, and series; (5) the
properties and graphs of conic sections; (6) permutations and
combinations; (7) matrices; and (8) exponential and logarithmic
functions. This course would ideally be taken by students whose
post-secondary plans may include military, trade school,
and/or apprenticeship, are unsure about their post plans, or are
seeking to take grade level coursework.

This course is an accelerated course in Algebra II. Similar in
content to the Algebra II, course content is covered in greater
depth and at a more rigorous pace. Course content topics include
theory of equations, functions, complex numbers, sequences, and
matrix algebra. Upon completion of this course, students are
prepared for Pre-Calculus. This course is for two and four-year
college bound students who have achieved above grade level in math.
**Pre-requisite:** Have completed
the previous year's honors class in good standing, per the

Through special arrangements with Ivy Tech, students have the
opportunity to enroll in Pre- Calculus/Trigonometry as a Dual
Credit class and receive a total of six (6) college credits at
no cost, from Ivy Tech. The student will need to receive
a "C-" or better to receive credit at Ivy Tech and must pass the
pre-requisite of Algebra II. Students need to pass the
Accuplacer Placement Exam TBA, PSAT Math 52, or SAT Math 520, and/or ACT Math
24. These credits
must be accepted at all Indiana state schools and may be accepted
at out of state institutions and private schools.

This course is designed to prepare the student for their first
course in elementary calculus. Course content includes a review of
trigonometry plus: (1) the relationship of equations and graphs of
linear, quadratic and parametric equations, (2) translation of
axes; (3) locus and vectors. The course includes the theory of
equations, exponential and logarithmic functions, matrices, and
determinants.

Calculus is a course which provides students with the content
that has been established by the College Board. Topics include:
limits, continuity, derivatives, definite integrals, and techniques
of integration involving rational, trigonometric, logarithmic, and
exponential functions. This also includes applications of the
derivative, the integral, and theory of calculus. The use of a
graphing calculator is required. Note: It is expected that students
taking this course will seek college credit by taking the AP Exam
in the spring.

**CCR BRIDGE: MATH READY (12)
2 Credits, 2 Semesters
Core 40, AHD, THD**

Math Ready course will include and reinforce the Algebra I,
Geometry, Algebra 2 and Statistics skills necessary to be ready for
an entry-level college math course. This course emphasizes
understanding of math concepts rather than just memorizing
procedures. Math Ready students learn the context behind the
procedure: why to use a certain formula or method to solve a
problem, for example. This equips them with higher-order thinking
skills in order to apply math skills, functions and concepts in
different situations. The course is intended for students who
currently have achieved the minimum math requirements for college
entry. The content of this course is designed to enhance student's
math skills so that they are ready for college-level math
assignments. It is not designed to prepare students for
college-level math in STEM majors.

**Recommended Pre-requisites:** In grade 11,
students who have not passed the Grade 10 Math ISTEP+ and have
scored below a 45 on the PSAT test or students who score below
proficient on a diagnostic test should be placed in the Literacy
Ready course.
