Secondary Math I

CSD Course Code:
  • Q1 - V5091
  • Q2 - V5102
  • Q3 - V5113
  • Q4 - V5124
USOE Course Code:
  •  7080000090
Description:

This course teaches students how to simplify expressions and solve linear equations, introduces basic geometric terms and logic, reasoning, and proof and addresses linear equations in a graphical sense, and parallel and perpendicular lines, first from an algebraic perspective, followed by proving associated theorems using geometry.  This course also teaches students how to solve proportions, use square roots, explore exponents, simplify polynomials, factor and solve quadratic equations, and apply these skills to geometry topics such as quadrilaterals, polygons, area, and volume.

Secondary Math I Honors

CSD Course Code:
  • Q1 - V5271h
  • Q2 - V5282h
  • Q3 - V5293h
  • Q4 - V5304h
USOE Course Code:
  •  7080000095
Description:

The main focus of Secondary Mathematics I H is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learn in the middle grades.  Students will depend their understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting them with exponential relationships, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend.  Properties and theorems involving congruent figures will be used to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge.  Vectors and matrices, additional Pre-Calculus topics, will also be studied in the honors class so as to prepare students to take AP Calculus upon successful completion of Secondary Math III H.

  • Q2 - V5142
  • Q3 - V5153
  • Q4 - V5164
USOE Course Code:
  •  7080000100
Description:

This course teaches students about linear equations and inequalities, functions and families of functions, triangles, and how to apply their knowledge to solve systems and prove theorems. This course also teaches students about geometrical relationships in triangles and plane figures, special right triangles, basic trigonometry, radicals, polynomials, rational equations, probability and statistics.

Secondary Math II Honors

CSD Course Code:
  • Q1 - V5311h
  • Q2 - V5322h
  • Q3 - V5333h
  • Q4 - V5334h
USOE Course Code:
  •  7080000105
Description:

The main focus of Secondary Mathematics II is on quadratic expressions, equations, and functions and comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships.  Extension of the set of rational numbers and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratics equations can be solved.  Students will explore conditional probability and counting methods in making and evaluating decisions.  The study of similarity, Pythagorean relationships, and circles will tie back to quadratics with their quadratic algebraic representations.  The Fundamental Theorem of algebra, along with the additional probability and geometric concepts, will also be studied in the honors class so as to prepare students to take AP Calculus upon successful completion of Secondary III H.

Secondary Math III

CSD Course Code:
  • Q1 - V5171
  • Q2 - V5182
  • Q3 - V5193
  • Q4 - V5204
USOE Course Code:
  •  07080000110
Description:

The main focus of Secondary Mathematics III is for students to make connections and apply the concepts they learned in Secondary I and II. Students will apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data. They will expand their knowledge of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students will further develop their study of right triangle trigonometry to include general triangles. Finally, they will create geometric and functional models to solve contextual problems.
