## Mathematics

A minimum of 3 credits of math is required for graduation. Algebra 1 and Geometry are required for 2 of the 3 credits. The State of Illinois requires all juniors to take the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE) to assess “how students are doing” compared to the Illinois Learning Standards. The expectation is that all students will take a minimum of Algebra 2. The classes offered for students of Morrisonville High School are Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Probability and Statistics, and College Math Prep.

Algebra 1A / Grade 9-10 / Year Course / 1 Credit / 205 02053A000

Algebra 1 relates algebraic thinking and skills to applications of the real world. Concepts and skills will be taught graphically, numerically, algebraically, and verbally. Functions, linear equations, and inequalities, and their graphs will be the main focus. The study of polynomials will lead to graphing and solving quadratic and radical equations. Students will be expected to communicate their strategies by reading, writing, talking, and thinking mathematics. A TI-84+ graphing calculator (which will be used throughout high school and college) is highly recommended, but minimally, a scientific calculator will be required. Algebra 1A is the first half of Algebra 1 taught over a full year. It will be followed by Algebra 1B the following school year.

Algebra 1B / Grades 9-10 / Year Course / 1 Credit / 206 02054A000

Algebra 1A is the first half of Algebra 1 taught over a full year. It will be followed by Algebra 1B the following school year. Prerequisite: Algebra 1A.

Geometry / Grades 10-12 / Year Course / 1 Credit / 230 02072A000

Geometry provides applications of the skills learned in Algebra 1 as angles, polygons, and their characteristics are studied. Emphasis is placed on angle sum, congruence, and similarity of triangles and their relationships within them. Students will also become familiar with quadrilaterals and circles. The concepts learned will be used to delve into the three dimensional realm with surface area and volume. A TI-84+ graphing calculator (which will be used throughout HS and college) is highly recommended, but minimally, a scientific calculator is required. Prerequisite: Algebra 1 or Algebra 1A and 1B.

Algebra 2 / Grades 11-12 / Year Course / 1 Credit / 240 02056A000

Pre-requisites: Algebra 1 and Geometry

Algebra 2 focuses on myriad functions, including quadratic, polynomial, radical, exponential, logarithmic, rational, and periodic functions. The study of these functions will deepen understanding of the operations of exponential and radical expressions. Students will become acquainted with the use of matrices and explore sequences and series, and probability and statistics. A TI-84+ graphing calculator (which will be used throughout high school and college) is highly recommended, but minimally, a scientific calculator will be required.

Pre-Calculus / Grade 12 / Year Course / 1 Credit 250 02110A000

Prerequisites: Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2

Pre-calculus offers an in-depth study of four topics. Students’ knowledge of functions and their graphs will deepen as they delve into linear, polynomial, and rational functions. A graphing calculator will be used to analyze the graphs of these functions and explore their nature. Graphing calculators will continue to be used throughout the study of trigonometric functions, graphs, identities, and equations. An exploration will be made of vectors, parametric equations, polar coordinates, complex numbers, conics, and exponential and logarithmic functions. Finally, sequences and series, combinatorics and probability, and statistics and data analysis will prepare students for college-level mathematics courses. A TI-84+ graphing calculator (which will be used throughout college) is required to allow the rigorous use of graphs possible. Prerequisites: Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2

Probability and Statistics / Grade 12 / Sem Course / .5 Credit 260 02201A000

Statistics is a semester-long course that introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, modeling, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. This will provide a head start for those who are heading to college where they are likely to be required to complete a research project using the concepts of statistics. Students are exposed to exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. A TI-84+ graphing calculator (which will be used throughout college) is required. Prerequisites: Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2.
