# Math Courses (MS)

## MA 0600 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.

## MA 0710 Math 7 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, students solidify their 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.
Prerequisite: Placement Exam

## MA 0810 Math 8

Students will further their understanding of the concepts covered in previous math courses.  They will develop an understanding of 8th-grade math standards.  They will also be introduced to grade-level appropriate problems that are written in a more complex form.

## MA 0830 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.
Prerequisite: Grade of B or better in Pre-Algebra

## MA 0850 Geometry

This 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.
Prerequisite: Grade of B or better in Algebra I
