Classes are taught by Mrs. Morfeld and Mr. McKenna
Algebra I - The course content includes working with properties of real numbers, solving linear equations, graphing linear equations and functions, writing linear equations, solving and graphing linear inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, exponents and exponential functions, quadratic equations and functions, polynomials and factoring, rational expression and equations, and radicals and connections to Geometry. This course is a graduation requirement.
Geometry - The objective of this course is to help the student understand plane and space relationships and introduces the logical development of a mathematical system. Topics covered are: basic spatial concepts, deductive proofs, parallelism, perpendicularity, congruence, quadrilaterals, ratio and proportion, similar polygons, the Pythagorean Theorem, right triangle trigonometry, circles, coordinate geometry, regular polygons, areas, and volumes.
Applied Math--Class designed to cover topics in mathematics needed to learn a technical skill in a 1 or 2 year college. The course emphasizes the problem solving skills that are essential for success in technical courses. Class reviews grade 11 Nebraska Math Standards
Algebra II - Algebra 2 is a college prep course which emphasizes review of Algebra 1, the Real and Complex Number Systems, solving equations and inequalities, and functions including linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and rational. Sequences and series, determinants, conic sections, the Binomial Theorem, permutations, combinations, and probability will also be covered. We will also study some basic trigonometric equations.
Advanced Math - Advanced Math extends the students’ knowledge into new mathematical areas and prepares them for first year college courses. Topics included are a review of Algebra 2 content of linear and nonlinear equations and functions and conic sections. Then students will gain a deeper understanding of trigonometric functions, identities, double-and-half-angle identities, and solving trigonometric equations. Other topics include: vectors, parametric equations and an introductory to basic calculus concepts.
Consumer Math - This course is divided into six units. The first unit contains workshops that provide a primer of basic math skills. The next five units contain three to five chapters that will help students use math in the real world. These units include; managing your money, managing your expenses, making financial decisions, Making business decisions, and managing business finances.
