Course: Algebra 1/2
Grade: 9th
Prerequisite: Math 87 and recommendation from instructor
Description
Pre-Algebra or Algebra 1/2 is the bridge course from arithmetic to a beginning of the study of Algebra in Algebra 1.

It combines the finish of arithmetic fundamentals, advanced arithmetic concepts with the abstract part of mathematics that uses letters to represent many different numbers.

Basic equations are introduced along with the methods to solve them, extensive work with fractions, ratios of different types, proportion, volume, surface area, signed numbers, and word problems that use these and other methods in their solutions.

Students are taught to analyze problems involving more than one mathematics operation for solution.

Course: Consumer Math I
Grade: 10-12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1/2
Description
This course is designed for the student not planning to take a full curriculum of mathematics in high school to pursue advanced degrees in the sciences or mathematics in college for the student who desires to understand more of the mathematics involved in everyday family life.

The course consists of up to 10 areas of interest to any person planning to be involved in some type of family unit.

The student's skills will be sharpened in several of the following areas: Buying, Budgeting, Borrowing, Investments, Insurance, Inflation, Stocks, Savings, Statistics, Taxes. The course is designed to make the student aware of how to maximize their ability to efficiently use their earnings for the well being and success of their family. The course consists of 1/2 year of Algebra 1 before beginning the above-mentioned course work.

Course: Consumer Math II
Grade: 11-12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1/2, Consumer Math I, or extenuating circumstances approved by the instructor in consultation with the course instructor
Description
Students will apply mathematical knowledge to practical situations such as computing simple, compound and complex interest and calculating unit cost.

Students will learn how to use mathematics to maximize their chances for success as consumers. They will learn various aspects of math in health, agriculture and agribusiness, business economics, and technology.

The purpose of Consumer Mathematics II is to review and enhance basic mathematical skills. It is a course, which will prepare students to use mathematics in practical decision-making.

Course: Algebra I
Grade: 9-12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1/2
Description
Algebra 1 represents the course that completes the transition from arithmetic to the discipline of Algebra.

Algebra 1 lays the groundwork for further courses in Algebra providing the basic tools used to manipulate letters instead of numbers.

In addition, the beginnings of probability, statistics, geometry, volumes of shapes, surface area of shapes, scientific notation, motion problems, fractional use of variables, graphing of equations, square roots, coin problems, domain, and range among other concepts are studied. Algebra 1 completes the gateway begun by Algebra 1/2 to the greater complexity of Algebra 2 and Algebra 3.

This course could also be used by the student not wishing to pursue a degree or emphasis on mathematics, but desiring to have more background on the beginnings of the abstract nature of higher mathematics. It, therefore, could be substituted for Mathematics for Daily Living with the recommendation of the Algebra 1/2 teacher.
Weight: 1.1
Course: Algebra II
Grade: 10-12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1
Description
Algebra 2 builds on the concepts of Algebra 1 and provides students with the mathematics language that enables problem solving. It is a continued study of algebra and the study of trigonometric ratios, and geometry.

Recommended for the college bound.
Weight: 1.2
Course: Algebra III
Grade: 11-12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1, Algebra 2
Description
An Advanced study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and math analysis. Recommended for the college bound.

Algebra 3 builds on the concepts of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 and provides students with the mathematical knowledge that enables problem solving.
Weight: 1.3
Course: College Algebra
Grade: 12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 2 and consent of the teacher. Algebra 3 is recommended.
Description
College Algebra is intended for the college bound senior who does not need Calculus for his/her chosen field of study, but needs four years of high school mathematics for his/her chosen college or for the student who wants to get his/her college mathematics credit while in high school.

It can be taken for 3 hours of college credit.
Weight: 1.4
Course: Statistics
Grade: 12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Algebra 3 - and 20 on Math part of ACT
Description
Most college majors require a statistics class. Most colleges will allow students to transfer to our statistics class.

Mr. Moore teaches the class in conjunction with Northwest Missouri State University. Students needing four years of math may take College Algebra/Statistics or Calculus.

Statistics may be taken for 3 hours college credit in conjunction with the Northwest Missouri State University.
Weight: 1.4
Course: Calculus
Grade: 12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Algebra 3
Description
Calculus is a course for college bound students which prepares them for a math-based field of study.

Also Calculus may be taken to get your college mathematics credit while in high school. It may be taken for 4 hours college credit.
Weight: 1.4
Course: Physics
Grade: 12th
Prerequisite: Algebra 3 and Chemistry
Description
Students will study the transformation of matter and energy through the fundamental quantities of mass, length, time, temperature, and electrical charge.

Topics will include standard measurement, nature of motion, nature of waves, thermal effects, and electricity.

Rationale: The purpose of physics is to help students develop an understanding of the laws and theories that govern the physical world in which they live. Students should develop the skills necessary to collect and interpret data, think critically to solve problems, and apply these skills to the real-world situations.
