NOTE: Students must be registered in a core Math class during the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior year. The TNReady Assessment is required in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.  Research shows more rigorous math classes help produce higher student ACT/SAT scores. Also, rigorous math courses taken in high school tend to lead to a higher GPA in college. 

 

Algebra I A/B (9) 

  • Prerequisite: None

  • Preparation for Exam: EOC in Spring

Algebra I is the study of mathematics in which arithmetical operations and formal manipulations are applied to abstract symbols rather than specific numbers. This course is designed for freshmen who did not receive credit for Algebra I in middle school. This is a yearlong course in which students receive one elective credit (Algebra IA-Fall) and one math credit (Algebra IB-Spring). Students with qualifying disabilities as documented in the IEP may earn math credit for Algebra I A. 

 

Geometry (9-10)

  • Prerequisite: Algebra I 

  • Preparation for Exam: EOC at conclusion of course

A focus on the understanding of properties, relationships, and geometric reasoning of multidimensional concepts is included in this course. Students receive one (1) math credit.  



 

Honors Geometry (9-11)

  • Prerequisites: Algebra I; on-track or mastery on Algebra I EOC; Teacher rec.

  • Preparation for Exam: EOC at conclusion of course

Honors Geometry focuses on the understanding of properties, relationships, and geometric reasoning of multidimensional concepts. Included in this course is a review of arithmetical operations and formal manipulations applied to abstract symbols rather than specific numbers. This class is only for students who received credit for Algebra I and scored on track or mastery on the Algebra I TNReady Assessment. Students receive one (1) math credit. 

 

Geometry IA (10)

  • Prerequisites: Algebra IB; IEP; Teacher recommendation

Geometry IA is the first course in a two semester study of mathematics that focuses on the understanding of properties, relationships, and geometric reasoning of multidimensional concepts. It is designed for students who only have to meet the state graduation requirements of Algebra I and Geometry. Students receive one (1) math credit. 

 

Geometry IB (11)

  • Prerequisites: Geometry IA; IEP; teacher recommendation

  • Preparation for Exam: EOC at conclusion for course

Geometry IB is the second course in a two-semester study of mathematics that focuses on the understanding of properties, relationships, and geometric reasoning of multidimensional concepts. It is designed for students who only have to meet the state graduation requirements of Algebra I and Geometry. Students receive one math credit. 

 

Algebra II (10-12)

This course includes an in-depth study of functions, analytical problem solving, and data analysis. This is a year-long course in which students receive one (1) elective credit (Algebra IIA-Fall) and one (1)math credit (Algebra IIB-Spring). 

 

Honors Algebra II (10-11)

  • Prerequisites: A or B in Algebra I and Geometry and on-track or mastery on the Algebra I and Geometry EOCs.

  • Preparation for Exam: EOC

This course is designed to provide college prep students with a more in-depth Algebra II at an accelerated pace. The class meets state standards for an honors course. This is a two-semester course where students receive one (1) elective credit (Honors Algebra IIA-Fall) and one (1) math credit (Honors Algebra IIB-Spring). 

 

Statistics / State Dual Credit (11-12)

  • Prerequisite: B or higher in Algebra II or C or higher in Honors Algebra II; Teacher recommendation

  • Course Type: State Dual Credit

  • Preparation for Exam: State Dual Credit Challenge Exam

This course is designed to investigate real-world problems through data sampling and experimentation, pattern recognition, and statistical inference in order to answer relevant questions. Students receive one math credit. Those scoring high enough will receive college credit and high school credit for the course. 



 

Honors Statistics / State Dual Credit (11-12)

  • Prerequisite: An A in Algebra II or B< in Honors Algebra II; on-track or mastery on Algebra II EOC; Teacher recommendation

  • Course Type:  State Dual Credit

  • Preparation for Exam: State Dual Credit Challenge Exam

This course is designed for students wanting a more rigorous, in-depth investigation into real-world problems through data sampling and experimentation, pattern recognition, and statistical inference in order to answer relevant questions.  Students receive one (1) math credit.  Those scoring high on the Challenge Exam will receive college credit and high school credit for the course.

 

Precalculus / State Dual Credit (11-12)

  • Prerequisite: B < in Algebra II or C < in Honors Algebra II; on-track or mastery in Algebra II EOC; Teacher recommendation

  • Course Type: State Dual Credit

  • Preparation for Exam: State Dual Credit Challenge Exam

The content of this course includes the study of Trigonometry as a circular function. This course focuses on a more analytical approach to the study of functions and transcendental functions. Students are introduced to limits, vectors, and polar forms. At the end of the course, students will take the state dual credit challenge exam. Those scoring high enough will receive college credit and high school credit for the course. 

 

Bridge Math (12)

  • Prerequisites: Algebra II with less than a 19 on the ACT

  • NCAA Note: This course does not fulfill a math credit requirement for the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse. 

This course is designed for students who have not earned a 19 on the mathematics component of the ACT by the end of the junior year. It is designed to prepare students for college level mathematics courses. Students receive 1 math credit. 

 

SAILS A (12)

  • Prerequisites: Algebra II -less than a 19 on the ACT, good attendance and discipline record, and teacher recommendation

  • NCAA Note: This course does not fulfill a math credit requirement for the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse.  

This course is designed for college bound students who have not earned a 19 on the mathematics component of the ACT by the beginning of their senior year. SAILS (Seamless Alignment and Integrated Learning Support) provides students the opportunity to complete college level developmental math course requirements before entering college. All students will complete the five SAILS A modules and then choose to take the four SAILS B STEM modules or Dual Credit Statistics depending on their intended college major. 

 

SAILS B (12)

  • Prerequisite: SAILS A and less than 19 on the ACT

This course is the continuation of SAILS A and is designed for college-bound students who have completed SAILS A and plan on taking college algebra. This course does not fulfill a math credit requirement for the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse.  

 

Honors Calculus (12)
