## Mathematics

Our Mathematics Courses are designed to strengthen the students problem-solving and reasoning skills and to help the develop their understanding of math as a tool of commerce, the language of science, and a means for solving everyday problems. They are also designed to help our students see the relevance of math and it Biblical basis from beginning to end.

Foundations: Students are introduced to the basic concepts of algebra in preparation of Algebra 1. students are introduced to expressions of equations, decimals, integers, number theories, rational numbers, equations and inequalities, ratios, proportions, percentages, and very basic geometric functions.

Algebra 1: Students are introduced to graphing, solving systems of equations, operations with polynomials and radicals, factoring polynomials, solving rational equations, and graphing quadratic equations.

Geometry: This course introduces the students to a balanced study of proofs, theorems, and real-life geometry. Included studies are area, volume, congruence, similarity, space, transformations, constructions, and trigonometry.

Geometry: Students study geometric figures using the principles of inductive and deductive reasoning. Students will 1) develop an understanding of the basic elements of geometry, including essential vocabulary and symbols; 2)use inductive and deductive reasoning in a variety of situations, including the proofs of formal theorems; 3) develop an understanding of properties of parallel lines and various angles formed; 4) identify the corresponding parts of congruent and similar triangles and polygons using appropriate theorems to solve application problems related to them; 5) develop an understanding of various convex polygons and the theorems associated with them; 6) develop an understanding of the basic properties of right triangles; 7) calculate and apply the area, perimeter, circumference, and volume of two and three-dimensional figures, including circles; and, 8) develop the spatial ability to analyze two and three-dimensional figures, including transformations in the coordinate planes.

Algebra 2: This course reviews the basic algebraic functions and extend each student's skills in graphing and in solving equations. Students are introduced to exponential functions, logarithms, and trigonometry. More advanced topics such as complex numbers, rational expressions and equations, conic section, probability, and statistics are also introduced. A component of matrix algebra is also included.

Pre-Calculus: This college prep course emphasizes functions, graphing, trigonometry, and differential calculus.

Introduction to Statistics: In this course students will be able to define basic terms used in statistics; compute simple measures of central tendency; compute measures of dispersion, and construct tables and graphs that display measures of central tendency.
