Math Courses Offered at CCHS

FOUNDATIONS OF ALGEBRA

Prerequisites: “C” or below in Math 8 or Pre-Algebra and teacher recommendation (1-2 Credits)

A strong foundation for academic mathematics is provided in this course. Students will use Algebra and the graphing calculator as tools for representing and solving a variety of practical problems. Topics include: rational numbers, equations, inequalities, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, graphing linear equations, systems of equations, and radical expressions. Students who receive a 375 or below on the 8th grade math SOL will be placed in this class.


ALGEBRA I WITH APPLIED GEOMETRY

Prerequisite: Foundations of Algebra

This course is the second part of the Algebra I - Two Year sequence. Successful completion of this course is necessary to get 2 credits in Math.


ALGEBRA I

Prerequisite: Completion of Pre-Algebra

This course is for advanced students who are ready to learn algebra skills, concepts, and problem solving at an accelerated pace.


GEOMETRY

Prerequisite: Completion of Algebra I

This course includes axiomatic methods of proof, two and three-dimensional reasoning skills, coordinate and transformational geometry, and the use of geometric models to solve problems.


ALGEBRA II

Prerequisites: Algebra I & Geometry

Concepts of Algebra I are extended to include the study of quadratic, exponential and logarithmic functions, the study of complex numbers and the solution of quadratic open sentences, and systems of open sentences. Analytic geometry and sequences and series are introduced.


ADVANCED MATH

Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, & Algebra II “B” average in Algebra II

This course is designed to bridge the gap between Algebra II and Calculus. The content of this course includes functions, graphs and applications, sequence and series, trigonometry, data analysis and limits, and introduces students to Calculus.


CALCULUS (HONORS)

Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, & Advanced Math and teacher recommendation

The logic and intuitive reasoning of calculus including limits, continuity, differentiation, integration, and applications will be emphasized. Honors Calculus is a demanding course in terms of time and dedication; therefore, the student attempting this elective must be self-motivated, dedicated and have excellent Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry, and Advanced Math skills.


AP CALCULUS

Prerequisites: Successful completion of four years of secondary mathematics including Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II/Trigonometry (required). Pre-Calculus /Mathematical Analysis (recommended).

Advanced Placement Calculus develops the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and provides experience with its methods and applications.

The course emphasizes a multi representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, Four years of secondary mathematics including courses in which algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions are taught. These functions include those that are linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piece-wise defined. Student work will be required outside of class time.


DUAL ENROLLMENT COLLEGE ALGEBRA – (VSU)

  • Math 120 – College Algebra - 4 semester hours

    Prerequisites: Completion of Algebra II with a B average.

    A pre-calculus course in algebra, covering functions and their graphs, transformation of functions, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of equations; and the application of these algebraic concepts to other disciplines.

  • Math 121 College Algebra and Trigonometry – 3 Semester Hours

    Prerequisite: College Algebra.

    Exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, analytic trigonometry and applications of trigonometry
