**Level 1 Math Courses**

*Geometry*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: Placement based on a student’s 8th grade. Algebra experience and the EXPLORE math score.

Lab Fee: None

This course is based on the principles of Euclidean, plane, and solid geometries. Students will be introduced to the basic postulates and theorems of geometry and encouraged to extend these ideas to the topics of similarity, circles, area, volume, and proof. Additional topics include constructions, probability, and basic concepts of algebra.

*Accelerated Geometry*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: Placement based on a student’s 8th grade. Algebra experience and the EXPLORE math score.

Lab Fee: None

This course is based on the principles of Euclidean, plane, and solid geometries. Students will be introduced to the basic postulates and theorems of geometry and encouraged to extend these ideas to the topics of similarity, circles, area, volume, and proof. Additional topics include constructions, probability, and basic concepts of algebra. In addition, students are involved in a more technological, theoretical, and algebraic approach to geometry.

Level 2 Math Course

*Algebra 1*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year Prerequisite: MA101/102

Lab Fee: None

This course integrates traditional algebra topics with various methods of problem solving. Topics include: sets, properties of the real number system, exponents, radicals, polynomials, functions, graphing, equations, probability, statistics, and quadratics.**Level 3 Math Courses: **Note: Level 3 courses complete Mathematics preparation for the ACT

Algebra 2

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: MA221/222 or equivalent

Lab Fee: None

This course is a traditional second year of algebra. Topics include: a brief review and extension of basic algebra principles; linear, quadratic, rational, radical, logarithmic, and exponential functions and equations; matrices; probability and statistics; and basic trigonometric functions and their properties.

Algebra 2/Trigonometry

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: A or B in MA221/222

Lab Fee: None

This course combines a second year of algebra and the study of trigonometric functions. Topics include those listed above in Algebra 2 plus: sequences and series; combinatorics; properties of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions; trigonometric equations; solutions of oblique and right triangles.

Level 4 Math Courses

*MA401/402 College Algebra*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: MA301/302

Lab Fee: None

Mathematical topics and applications required for college-level study in areas such as biology, business,computer science, and/or social science are emphasized. Topics include; statistics, models and transformations of functions; polynomial, power, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions; sequences and series; probability and statistics; and conics.

*Pre-Calculus*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: A or B in MA311/312

Lab Fee: None

This course emphasizes topics that will prepare the students for higher-level mathematics. It is recommended for students who will pursue college courses in mathematics, the sciences, engineering and other mathematics-intensive degrees. Topics include: trigonometric functions and identities, inverse functions, vector algebra, plane and solid analytic geometry, polynomials, exponents and logarithms, statistics and probability, polar coordinates, complex numbers, and introductory calculus topics.**Level 5 Math Courses**

*Advanced Math Topics*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: MA401/402 or MA411/412

Lab Fee: AP test fee may apply

This course emphasizes the mathematical topics and applications required for college level study in areas such as biology, business, computer science, and/or social science. Topics may include: probability, statistics, matrices, linear programming, mathematical modeling, difference equations, finance, symbolic logic, and graph theory. The course will be individualized to meet the needs of the enrolled students. Therefore, the AP Statistics curriculum maybe included in the course.

*AP Calculus*

Credit: 1.0 credit, Year

Prerequisite: A or B in MA411/412 and Departmental invitation

Lab Fee: AP test fee applies

This is a first course in differential and integral calculus, covering all topics included in the AP AB Calculus curriculum. AP Calculus is comparable to a first college calculus course for students majoring in mathematics or the sciences. Students will take the AP Calculus exam in the spring.
