Studying on a Computer

PREALGEBRA

Prerequisites: Saxon 7/6 or Saxon 8/7 or similar

This PreAlgebra class is usually taken as an optional second PreAlgebra course for students who have scored less than 85% in PreAlgebra 1 (Saxon 8/7). This class moves more quickly than Saxon 8/7, includes more arithmetic in the first half of the course, and represents a culmination of PreAlgebra mathematics, covering all topics normally taught in PreAlgebra, as well as additional topics from geometry and discrete mathematics (used in engineering and computer sciences).

 

Students can deepen their understanding of PreAlgebra topics such as fractions, decimals, percents, mixed numbers, signed numbers, order of operations, evaluation of algebraic expressions, and solutions for linear equations in one unknown.

 

NOTE: it is recommended for students who do well in Saxon math 8/7 to go straight into Algebra 1 and for students who struggle in Saxon Math 8/7 (score less than 85%) to take Saxon Algebra ½ the following year for more preparation before going into Algebra 1.

ALGEBRA 1

Prerequisites: Saxon 8/7 or Saxon Algebra 1/2 or similar

This is a moderately-paced course designed for students who are well prepared for Algebra 1 and are able to maintain a somewhat brisk pace and reasonable weekly assignments.

 

This class will provide one credit of algebra and students can list "Algebra 1" on their transcripts. Algebra 1 covers all topics in a first-year algebra course - from proofs, statistics, and probability to algebra-based, real-world problems.

 

With Algebra 1, students employ higher-order thinking skills, real-world applications, reasoning, and justification to make connections to math strands. Algebra 1 focuses on algebraic thinking and multiple representations (verbal, numeric, symbolic, and graphical).

ALGEBRA 2

Prerequisites: Algebra 1 or similar

This is a two-semester, moderate-to-fast-paced course designed for students who are well prepared for Algebra 2 and are able to maintain a decent pace and reasonable weekly assignments.

 

Algebra 2 covers all topics traditionally covered in second-year algebra, as well as half a credit worth of geometry. This class will provide the one full credit of algebra and can be listed on high school transcripts as "Algebra 2".

 

If a student does not complete any higher Saxon courses, students completing this Algebra 2 course may list one credit of "Algebra 2" and 1/2 credit of "Geometry".

 

Time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines. Real-world problems are included along with applications to other subjects such as physics and chemistry. Some graphing calculator usage is taught when learning trigonometric functions.

GEOMETRY WITH ADVANCED ALGEBRA + ACT MATH PREP

Prerequisites: Algebra 2 or similar

This is a course designed for students who have completed Algebra 2 and are able to maintain a reasonable pace and respectable weekly assignments. Geometry with Advanced Algebra is the next step in the Saxon mathematics path.

 

This class will use the first 25 weeks to cover the first 50ish lessons of the Saxon Advanced Mathematics, as well as review the geometry covered in the Saxon Algebra 2 (3rd ed) textbook*. The remaining 5 weeks will be devoted to ACT math preparation.

 

The 25 week portion will provide the equivalent of a full credit of geometry and can be entered on high school transcripts as "Geometry with Advanced Algebra".

 

The continued practice of intermediate algebraic skills and introduction of upper-level algebraic concepts and skills is present, along with a focus on problem solving and the development of productive thought patterns. Time is spent developing geometric concepts and writing proof outlines and heavy emphasis is placed on the study of common and natural logarithms, equations of conics, analytic geometry, and upper-level algebraic concepts.

 

This course completes the study of geometry, which has been spread over four years in the Saxon math series. Students have the following registration options:

- 30-week Geometry with Advanced Algebra + ACT math prep

- 25-week Geometry with Advanced Algebra only (80% cost)

- 5-week ACT math prep only (20% cost)

 

*Course adjustments have been made so students may enter this course from either third or fourth editions of Saxon's Algebra 2​

TRIGONOMETRY WITH PRECALCULUS

Prerequisites: Geometry w/Adv. Algebra or first 50ish lessons of Adv. Mathematics

This is the continuation for the Saxon Advanced Mathematics course. It is designed for students who have completed Geometry with Advanced Algebra and are able to maintain a reasonable pace and respectable weekly assignments.

 

This class is the is the next step in the Saxon mathematics path, after completing the first 50ish lessons of Saxon's Advanced Mathematics. This class will cover the remaining 60-70ish lessons of the Saxon Advanced Mathematics.

 

These lessons provide a year's worth of trigonometry and will begin introducing pre-calculus topics. This class will provide one full credit of trigonometry and can be listed on high school transcripts as "Trigonometry with PreCalculus".

 

Primary emphasis is on the continuation of intermediate algebraic concepts and skills while the upper-level algebraic concepts and skills are introduced. The study of trigonometry begun in the middle of Algebra 2 is continued, and heavy emphasis is placed on the study of trigonometric functions, common and natural logarithms, and the equations of conics.

Prepare your students for making financial decisions with instruction about credit card charges, taxes, interest on loans and savings, personal banking, and costs of transportation, food, clothing, utilities, insurance, and filling out income tax forms.

 

Being a good steward of money is the primary emphasis. The student text presents concepts with numerous examples and step-by-step explanations. Each section contains five cumulative review problems, and each chapter contains a chapter review.

ACT MATH PREP

Prerequisites: Algebra 2 helpful

This class moves quickly and covers a lot of material with which the student should already be fairly familiar. This class focuses heavily on Part 1 (core skills), which comprise the bulk of questions on the ACT. We will be looking a calculator familiarity as well as Part 2, which contains more advanced topics - still important, but do not make up the bulk of the ACT math questions.
