Mathematics

Three credits of Mathematics are required to graduate from CMASAS. The minimum requirement is that all three credits must be at Algebra I level or higher.

For students intending on applying to a public, four-year college or university it is recommended to take through Algebra II or higher. For students intending on applying to a highly selective college or university it is recommended to take through Pre-Calculus or higher.

 

Typical H.S. Mathematics Sequence:

  • Pre-Algebra Skills (usually met in 8th grade)
  • Algebra I A & B
  • Geometry A & B
  • Algebra II A & B

While the above sequence is the most common, it is by no means the only path.

Meet with your counselor and PEC to discuss the sequence that will best meet your specific education and career goals.

Courses

Algebra I

Honors, NCAA, Silver

This course is designed to give students the skills and strategies to solve all kinds of mathematical problems. Algebra I emphasizes the importance of algebra in everyday life through hundreds of real-world examples. Assessments are designed to ensure that your understanding goes beyond rote memorization of steps and procedures. Upon successful course completion, you will have a strong foundation in Algebra I and will be prepared for other higher level math courses.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: Pre-Algebra, or equivalent skills

Algebra II

Honors, NCAA, Silver

Algebra II is an advanced course which allows students to learn content through hands-on activities, applications, group interactions, and the latest technology. Interactive examples help guide students’ journey through customized feedback and praise. Mathematical concepts are applied to everyday occurrences such as earthquakes, stadium seating, and purchasing movie tickets.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: Algebra I and Geometry, or equivalent skills

Algebra Readiness

Silver

Students who love interactive learning will enjoy pre-Algebra concepts in Math 8. They experience intrigue and fun when they log in to Math 8. This hands-on course is full of slideshows, applications, videos, and real-world scenarios. The satisfaction students gain from truly understanding higher level concepts such as functions and systems of equations encourages excitement and joy for learning that they may have never experienced before.

Duration: 1 Semester
Prerequisites: None

Geometry

Honors, NCAA, Silver

In Geometry, students explore geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments as geometric experiences are formalized and extended. Standards for mathematical practice are followed so that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: Algebra I, or equivalent skills

Integrated Math I

Honors, Silver

The content in this course is tied to real-world applications like sports, travel, business, and health. This course is designed to give students the skills and strategies to solve all kinds of mathematical problems. Students will also acquire the confidence needed to handle everything high school math has in store for them. Integrated Mathematics I emphasizes the importance of algebra and geometry in everyday life through hundreds of real-world examples.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: None

Integrated Math II

Honors, Silver

Algebra and geometry are everywhere, not just in pyramids. Engineers use them to build highways and bridges. Artists use them to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on grids. Throughout this course, students travel a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem solving.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: Integrated Math I

Integrated Math III

Honors, Silver

This course allows students to learn while having fun. Interactive examples help guide students’ journey through customized feedback and praise. Mathematical concepts are applied to everyday occurrences such as earthquakes, stadium seating, and purchasing movie tickets. Students investigate the effects of an equation on its graph through the use of technology. Students have opportunities to work with their peers on specific lessons.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: Integrated Math II

Pre-Algebra

Silver

The goal of Pre-Algebra is to develop fluency with rational numbers and proportional relationships. Students will extend their elementary skills and begin to learn algebra concepts that serve as a transition into formal Algebra and Geometry. Students will learn to think flexibly about relationships among fractions, decimals, and percent’s. Students will learn to recognize and generate equivalent expressions and solve single-variable equations and inequalities.

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: None

Pre-Calculus

Honors, NCAA, Silver

Students, as mathematic analysts, will investigate how advanced mathematics concepts can solve problems encountered in operating national parks. The purpose of this course is to study functions and develop skills necessary for the study of calculus. The Pre-calculus course includes analytical geometry and trigonometry. Pre-calculus is an Honors level course only. Textbook Fee Optional

Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisites: Geometry and Algebra II
