    Algebra I Enrichment (2 semesters) Grade Level: 9
    Course No. 9009
    Prerequisites: by placement only
    Students enrolled in this course will receive an elective credit, not a mathematics credit. This course is designed to support students by reinforcing and enriching their conceptual and procedural knowledge of algebra and problem solving through the use of a computer-based software curriculum along with instructor led reinforcement of algebraic concepts.  This innovative approach gives students the opportunity to receive individualized attention thus maximizing algebra learning.

    Algebra I (2 semesters) Grade Level: 9, 10, 11, 12
    Course No. 9011 (1st semester)
    Course No. 9012 (2nd semester)
    Prerequisites: None
    This course is recommended for all students. It is required for college entrance.  Algebra I is designed to help students understand the basic structure of the real number system with the techniques of algebra emphasized. It includes solving equations, inequalities, polynomials, functions, factors, and algebraic fractions. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding, on algebra as a means of representation, and on algebraic methods as a problem-solving tool.  Upon completion of this course, students must pass the State End-of-Instruction Test to be eligible for high school graduation. 

    Pre-AP Geometry (2 semesters) Grade Level: 9
    Course No. 9030 
    Prerequisite: Algebra I 
    This course will help the student understand the basic structure of Geometry, how it relates to other mathematics, and to other disciplines. The student will develop and build both inductive and deductive reasoning skills. Topics include in depth study of angle and line relationships, geometric shapes, triangles, proof writing, and constructions. Appropriate technology is integrated into the curriculum. A geometry credit is required for high school graduation and for college entrance.  Students must take the State End-of-Instruction Test upon completion of this course.  

    Geometry Enrichment (2 semesters) Grade Level: 10, 11
    Course No. 9106
    Prerequisites: by placement only
    Students enrolled in this course will receive an elective credit, not a mathematics credit. This course is designed to support students by reinforcing and enriching their conceptual and procedural knowledge of geometry and problem solving through the use of a computer-based software curriculum along with instructor led reinforcement of geometric concepts.  This innovative approach gives students the opportunity to receive individualized attention thus maximizing their learning.

    Intermediate Algebra (2 semesters) Grade Level: 11, 12
    Course No. 9504 (1st semester)
    Course No. 9505 (2nd semester)
    Prerequisite: Geometry and teacher recommendation
    This course offers students the opportunity to reinforce and enhance their algebra skills to further prepare them for an Algebra II course.  Students will investigate functional relationships and use algebraic concepts and methods as a means of representation and as a tool for logical reasoning and problem solving.  Number concepts will be extended to include irrational and complex numbers and their application to real-world situations. Students will use geometric ideas and tools to represent two-and three-dimensional situations and to understand the essential role of measurement.  Exploratory data analysis and statistical tools will be utilized to solve problems involving probability.  This course meets graduation requirements, but it DOES NOT meet Oklahoma's Promise or college entrance requirements.  Students completing this course will NOT be required to take a State End-of-Instruction Test.  Students enrolling in this course must have written approval of the parent or legal guardian.
     
    Pre-AP Algebra II  (2 semesters) Grade Level: 9, 10, 11, 12
    Course No. 9110 
    Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry (or concurrent enrollment in Geometry)
    This course covers all the topics of Algebra II with a more in-depth approach to problem solving.  Additional topics include conic sections, algebraic proofs, and graphical solutions of linear equations.  Appropriate technology is integrated into the curriculum.  Students must take the State End-of-Instruction Test upon completion of this course.

    Algebra II  (2 semesters) Grade Level: 10, 11, 12

    Course No. 9112 (2nd semester)
    Prerequisites: Geometry (or concurrent enrollment in Geometry)
    This course is recommended for any student who wants or will need a broad algebra base for his/her vocation.  It is required for college entrance.  Algebra II is a continuation of the algebraic processes begun in Algebra I.  This course includes solving equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials and factoring, rational and irrational numbers, quadratic equations, exponential functions, conic sections and logarithms.  Appropriate technology is integrated into the curriculum.  Students must take the State End-of-Instruction Test upon completion of this course.

    Math Analysis (2 semesters) Grade Level: 11, 12
    Course No. 9300
    Prerequisite: Algebra II
    The major emphasis of this course is to provide the college-bound student with the background needed to pursue careers which require a significant level of mathematical preparation. Specific topics in this course include all of the trigonometric topics, including polar coordinates and vectors. Advanced algebra topics of exponential functions, logarithms, and sequences and series are also taught. Appropriate use of technology is integrated into the curriculum. Skills and problem solving involving realistic applications are stressed. 

    Pre-AP Math Analysis (2 semesters) Grade Level: 11, 12
    Course No. 9301

Appropriate technology is integrated into the curriculum. 

    Pre-Calculus (2 semesters) Grade Level: 12
    Course No. 9200
    Prerequisite: Math Analysis
    The major emphasis of Pre-Calculus is to further develop those skills acquired in Math Analysis to complete the preparation of students for college calculus. The course includes developing the theory of equations and solving higher-order equations through polynomial and rational functions. Other topics include advanced work with complex numbers and three-dimensional vectors, analytic geometry, theory of limits, sequences and series, and simple derivatives.

    Prerequisite: Math Analysis
    This course is intended for college-bound students who have a thorough knowledge of college preparatory mathematics, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and analytic geometry (rectangular and polar coordinates, equations and graphs, lines and conics). Calculus AB is a course in introductory calculus with elementary functions and is comparable to the first calculus course in colleges and universities. Topics include elementary functions (algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic), differential calculus, and integral calculus. Appropriate use of technology is an integral part of the course. It is expected that students who take AP Calculus AB will seek college credit for the first calculus course and/or placement from institutions of higher learning.
