# Math Courses (MS)

## MA006 – Math 6

Students will prepare for pre-algebra and beyond by developing problem solving skills, increasing vocabulary database including use of language and symbols, and improving conceptual understanding. Students are introduced to graphing concepts, basic probability and statistics, and two- and three- dimensional geometric concepts. The focus, however, is on each student solidifying his or her understanding of basic concepts and problem solving.

## MA010 – Advanced Math Concepts

Students will further their understanding of the concepts covered in Math 6. Students will develop a deeper understanding of how to analyze and solve problems. They will also be introduced to problems that are written in a more complex form. This course is designed for students who need additional time and practice to master basic concepts before moving into Pre-Algebra.

## MA011 – Pre-Algebra

This course provides final preparation for formally studying algebra. Students are exposed to a broad range of topics including number concepts, computations, estimation, algebraic functions, solving equations and inequalities, data analysis, probability, geometric concepts, analyzing proportional relationships, and graphing concepts useful in everyday life. Throughout the course, each student solidifies his or her understanding of basic concepts and problem solving. Emphasis will be placed on developing an understanding of the relationship between these areas and how they interact and apply to real-world situations.

## MA321 Algebra I

This is a standard high school level algebra course that covers the following topics: operational symbols and their properties; integers and rational numbers and their properties; equation solving; inequalities and their solutions; factoring; linear equations and graphing; quadratic equations – solving and graphing. Algebra I is the foundation for all higher level math courses.

## MA401 Geometry

The geometry course provides a general overview of geometric principles with a review of algebraic concepts and factoring. Topics for geometry include, but are not limited to: constructions, transformations, triangle relationships, parallel line relationships, circle relationships, areas, and volumes.
