Basic Skills Development

2 Semesters, 1 Credit Grades Available: 9, 10, 11, 12

Prerequisite:  Instructor approval.

Basic Skills Development is a special class offered only to students enrolled in the Learning Support Center.  It is designed to work with those students who have an Individualized Education Plan on file with the school. Students taking the Basic Skills Development class have the opportunity to study, take tests and complete assignments under the guidance, assistance, and supervision of the Special Education teacher.  Students are offered a peaceful and supportive environment in which they can focus on their studies. Individual assistance is available and encouraged. Students will learn study skills such as note-taking strategies, graphic organizer use, and organizational skills.  An extra fee is required for students enrolled in this program.

Mathematics Lab

1 Semester, 1 Credit Grades Available: 11, 12

Mathematics Lab provides students with individualized instruction designed to support success in completing mathematics coursework aligned with Indiana’s Academic Standards for Mathematics.  This course is a requirement for any student who still needs to pass ISTEP+ Grade 10 Mathematics.  A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Algebra I Lab

2 Semesters, 2 Credits

Algebra I Lab is a mathematics support course for Algebra I.  The course provides students with additional time to build the foundations necessary for high school math courses, while concurrently having access to rigorous, grade-level appropriate courses.  The five critical areas of Algebra I Lab align with the critical areas of Algebra I:  relationships between quantities and reasoning with equations; linear and exponential relationships; descriptive statistics; expressions and equations; and quadratic functions and modeling.  However, whereas Algebra I contains exclusively grade-level content, Algebra I Lab combines standards from high school courses with foundational standards from the middle grades.  This course counts as a mathematics course for the General Diploma only or as an elective for the Core 40 and Core 40 with Academic Honors diplomas.  A student taking Algebra I Lab should also be enrolled in Algebra I during the same academic year. 

A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Algebra I

2 Semesters, 2 Credits

This course develops traditional principles such as:  solving equations and inequalities, performing operations with real numbers and polynomials, working with integer exponents and factoring polynomials, doing exercises with relations and functions, graphing linear equations and inequalities, graphing and algebraically solving linear systems, solving quadratic equations, and introducing topics from probability and statistics.  

A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Algebra I (1 & 2)

1 Semester, 2 Credits

This course is designed for those students who did not receive a C- average or better in Algebra I.  This course will meet everyday.  A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Honors Algebra I

2 Semesters, 2 Credits

Prerequisites:  A Basic Skills Math Grade Equivalent of at least 10.0, a Quantitative Standard Score of at least 600, and a Language Grade equivalent of at least 9.0 on the High School Placement Test. 

Honors Algebra I covers the same topics as in Algebra I, but with more emphasis on problem-solving and critical thinking skills in order to challenge the mathematically talented student.  Projects are incorporated into the lessons for the purpose of applying mathematical concepts. A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Algebra II

2 Semesters, 2 Credits

Prerequisites:  C- or better in Algebra I; Freshman enrollment is based on results of the Algebra I proficiency test.

This course further develops the topics learned in Algebra I with extensive work on learning to graph equations and inequalities in the Cartesian coordinate system.  Topics include: relations and functions, systems of equations and inequalities, conic sections, polynomials, algebraic fractions, logarithmic and exponential functions, sequences and series, and counting principles and probability.  A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Algebra II (1 & 2)

1 Semester, 2 credits

This course is designed to follow Algebra I (1 & 2).  The entire year of Algebra II will be covered in the spring semester.  A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

Honors Algebra II

2 Semesters, 2 Credits

Prerequisites:  B- or better in Honors Algebra I or A- in Algebra I; Freshman enrollment is based on results of the Algebra I proficiency test.

This course expands and develops the topics learned in Honors Algebra I.  Content areas include the topics listed for Algebra II with greater emphasis on preparation for upper level mathematics content. 

A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.

 

Geometry

2 Semesters, 2 Credits

Prerequisites: Algebra II; Freshman enrollment based on a passing score on the Algebra I Proficiency test given in June.  

The purpose of Geometry is to use logical thought processes to develop spatial skills.  Students work with figures in one, two and three-dimensional Euclidean space. The interrelationships of the properties of figures are studied through visualization, using computer drawing programs and constructions, as well as through formal proof and algebraic applications.

A TI-84+ GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS NEEDED.
