Pre Algebra Workshop

Recommended Prerequisite: A NWEA SCORE BELOW 216

Pre-Algebra Workshop is designed to meet the student at their level, solidifying his/her math skills to prepare for Algebra 1. Students will be engaged using ASSISTments on the iPads to evaluate and improve their math skills.

Algebra 1 Yearlong

Recommended Prerequisite: A NWEA SCORE BETWEEN 216 AND 230

Algebra 1 Year Long will examine the basic properties of the fundamental operations.  Topics will include writing and solving equations, operations on polynomials, and coordinate graphing. There will also be an introduction to the manipulation of radicals and descriptive statistics. Students will be applying these topics in real world situations. 

Algebra 1

Recommended Prerequisite: A NWEA SCORE OF 230 OR ABOVE

Algebra 1 will examine the basic properties of the fundamental operations.  Topics will include writing and solving equations, operations on polynomials, and coordinate graphing.  There will also be an introduction to the manipulation of radicals and descriptive statistics.  Students will be applying these topics in real world situations. 

Geometry Yearlong

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies of Algebra I Year Long

Geometry Year Long will examine properties of, and relationships between, polygons and the circle in a plane. Measurement techniques will be covered for the more common geometric figures. Inductive and deductive reasoning will also be covered.

Geometry

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies of Algebra I

Geometry will examine properties of, and relationships between, polygons and the circle in a plane.  Measurement techniques will be covered for the more common geometric figures. Formal proofs, inductive and deductive reasoning, and constructions will be included.

Algebra Topics

Prerequisite: Teacher Recommendation

Algebra Topics is designed to prepare students for a college algebra course. The presentation of this course is designed to re-energize reluctant learners by infusing quality habits of mind and applying math to a variety of real world problems. The content is similar to that of an Algebra 1 course with a few topics from Algebra 2.

TAC Math

Prerequisite: Accuplacer Score > 63 or Meeting Competencies in Algebra Topics

Topics in Applied College Math is designed to expose the student to a wide range of general mathematics. Topics to be covered include:  Number Theory and Systems, Functions and Modeling, Finance, Geometry and Measurement, and Probability and Statistics. Provided a student has an Accuplacer score > 63, they can earn college credit through Running Start at NHTI.

Algebra 2

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies of an Algebra I course

Algebra 2 is an extension of the skills in Algebra I Emphasis will be placed on functions and their graphs.  The structure of the set of algebraic numbers will be examined.  An introduction to descriptive statistics will be included. This course is strongly recommended for students planning to pursue a 4-year college program

Advanced Math

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies in Algebra II and Geometry

Advanced Math is a course designed to provide a strong background in algebra. This course will cover aspects of linear and non-linear algebra. Topics from statistics may be covered. 


Intro to Calculus

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies in Algebra II and Geometry

This is a Pre-Calculus course designed to provide a strong background for Calculus. This course will be covering aspects of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. The topic of limits will be introduced.

AP Calculus AB

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies in Intro to Calculus and Teacher Recommendation

In AP Calculus students will build conceptual understanding of topics by combining graphical, numerical, and algebraic viewpoints. Topics will include separable differential equations, applications of differentiation and integration, along with the continued study of the topics from Intro to Calculus. Students are eligible to take the Calculus AB AP exam in May which may allow them to earn college credit.

Probability & Statistics

Prerequisite: Meeting the competencies in Algebra II

Probability & Statistics will include the exploration of probability (what are the chances that an event will occur) and statistics (with what frequency does an event occur) in real world situations. Hypothesis testing will be used to make decisions about populations based on data.
