    Algebra I
    Course #: HS0330
    Grade: 9
    Credits: 1 Unit
    Credit Type: Math

    This course is an entry level course for advanced mathematics classes. The student will begin to work with variables, expression, and basic equations. The student will then progress to solving linear and quadratic equations, graphing those equations and factoring them. Students will also be asked to solve word problems a person may encounter in everyday life situations. Students will complete the state-required End-of-Course exam at the end of this course.


    Algebra A
    Course #: HS0318
    Grade: 9
    Credits: 1 Unit
    Credit Type: Math
    Prerequisite: Administrative Placement

    The subject matter covered in this course is approximately equal to that covered in one semester of the Algebra I class. This course introduces students to Algebra, which is taught at a reduced pace giving the student the extra time and practice needed to master these important skills. After the student passes Algebra A, he/she will be enrolled in Algebra B. This course does not satisfy 1 full unit of Math needed to gain admittance to a 4 year University.


    Algebra B
    Course #: HS0319
    Grade: 10
    Credits: 1 Unit
    Credit Type: Math
    Prerequisite: Algebra A

    This course is the second of a two-year program designed to give a student the full experience of Algebra I without the fast pace of a single-year course.  Algebra B is equivalent to the second semester of Algebra I. The student must successfully complete both Algebra A and Algebra B or Algebra I before enrolling in the next succeeding course. This course does not satisfy 1 full unit of Math needed to gain admittance to a 4-year University. Students will complete the state-required End-of-Course exam at the end of this course.


    Geometry
    Course #: HS0319
    Grade: 9-12
    Credits: 1 Unit
    Credit Type: Math
    Prerequisite: Algebra 1

    This course provides a variety of topics using shapes with problems, proofs, and basic constructions so that the student has the opportunity to analyze and practice independent thinking.  This expanded knowledge will allow students to enhance their Algebra skills by using 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometric figures and appropriate formulas.


    Algebra II
    Course #: HS0338
    Grade: 10-12
    Credits: .5 Unit
    Credit Type: Math
    Prerequisite: Geometry

    This course builds upon and extends the concepts, skills and understanding learned in Algebra I.  The course will also introduce more advanced topics that will serve as a foundation for Pre-AP Calculus, Trigonometry, and College Algebra. Suggested Calculator is TI-83 Plus or TI-84. Students who took Algebra I in the 8th grade will take the state-required Algebra II End-of-Course exam at the end of this course. Freshman students will be transported by bus to BSHS or BSSHS for this course.
