**Pre-Algebra: **5 credits – grade 9 – Mathematics – prerequisite: teacher recommendation

6230 | **Algebra 1:** 5 credits/semester – grade 9, 10, 11, 12 – Mathematics – prerequisite: Completion of Connected Math 3 or Pre-Algebra

The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grade. Because it is building on the middle grades standards, this is a more ambitious version of Algebra I than has generally been offered. The critical areas, called units, deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend, and students engage in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

6240 | **Geometry:** 5 credits/semester – grade 9, 10, 11, 12 – Mathematics – prerequisite: recommended ‘C’ or higher in Algebra 1

The fundamental purpose of the course in Geometry is to formalize and extend students' geometric experiences from the middle grades. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Important differences exist between this Geometry course and the historical approach taken in Geometry classes. For example, transformations are emphasized early in this course. Close attention should be paid to the introductory content for the Geometry conceptual category found in the high school CCSS. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. The critical areas, organized into six units are as follows: Congruence, Proof, and Constructions; Similarity, Proof and Trigonometry; Connecting Algebra and Geometry through Coordinates; Circles With and Without Coordinates; Extending to Three Dimensions; Applications or Probability.

6146 |** Data Analysis and Probability:** 5 credits – grade 10,11, 12 – Mathematics – prerequisite: Geometry

Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. The critical areas for this course, organized into four units are as follows: Inferences and Conclusions from Data; Polynomial, Rational, and Radical Relationships; Trigonometric Functions; Modeling with Functions.

These programs should be understandable, adaptable, and, when appropriate, reusable. At the same time, the design and implementation of computer programs is used as a context for introducing other important aspects of computer science, including the development and analysis of algorithms, the development and use of fundamental data structures, the study of standard algorithms and typical applications, and the use of logic and formal methods. In addition, the responsible use of these systems is an integral part of the course.
