Mathematics

  • Algebra 1 or Integrated Math 1 (teacher placement)

    This class is a requirement for all students in grade 9 unless Algebra was taken in grade 8.  It must be taken semester one and two.

     

    Advanced Algebra and Trig GRADE 10

    This course is a continuation of the concepts and processes covered in Algebra 9, but at a higher level.  Mathematical patterns, relationships, and functions will be used to model and solve problems.  

      

    Integrated Math 2, 3&4 GRADE 10-12

    This course is taken after Integrated Math 1, 2, or 3 –teacher recommendation.

     

    Geometry – After Advanced Algebra

    A different kind of math with a lot of thinking, planning and problem solving.  Students will investigate shapes, space and proofs.  This course will cover basic components required by the Minnesota State Standards.

      

    Consumer Math– Juniors and Seniors Preferred

    Students will also learn skills to simulate life choices such as find an apartment, buying a car, buying groceries, paying taxes, investing, etc.  This course focuses on decisions that will affect your future.

     

    Math Applications, Pre-Calculus GRADE 11-12

    This course is taken after Advanced Algebra and Geometry, and prior to College Algebra.  Primarily incorporates many of the topics learned in algebra with additional studies of functions and applications. The required preparation is three years of high school mathematics.

     

    College Algebra (College Math 110)(College Credit through Southwest Minnesota State University)

    Mathematics topics for students whose backgrounds are insufficient for them to begin their study of mathematics at a higher level. Topics include: equations and equalities, functions, graphs, polynomials, system of equations, matrices, and determinants. The required preparation is three years of high school mathematics, including at least one year of algebra.
