High School Mathematics Courses
Algebra 1
Suggested Age
1214
Prerequisites
This course may be done after Prealgebra or an equivalent course.
Process/Purpose
This course is the first of Saxon’s 2course sequence which integrates geometry into the algebraic sequence, as most of the rest of the industrial world does. This helps allow more students to get to calculus before graduation.
Curriculum/Materials
Geometry
Suggested Age
1417
Prerequisites
This course may be done after Algebra 1, after Algebra 2, or concurrently with Algebra 2.
Process/Purpose
Although Saxon Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 cover all of the learning objectives of a traditional geometry course, many students want to spend an entire year focusing on the rudiments and concepts of geometry. This course covers all the basic units of geometry, including logic, proofs, 2 and 3dimensional shapes, measurement, and constructions.
Curriculum/Materials
Algebra 2
Suggested Age
1417
Prerequisites
This course may be done after Algebra 1, Geometry, or an equivalent course.
Process/Purpose
This Algebra II course includes much of the proof element of geometry, as well as nontraditional units on probability. This course also includes introductions to several key science topics including vectors, pH, trig functions, and standard gas laws.
Curriculum/Materials
PreCalculus
Suggested Age
1517
Prerequisites
This course may be done after Algebra 2 or an equivalent course.
Purpose
The purpose of this book is to give students a comprehensive education in all topics that will enable them to confidently charge in Calculus. Even for those students not progressing to Calculus – this book provides an amazing critical thinking aspect to one's math career.
Topics
Basic Functions , Polynomial and Rational Functions , Exponential and Logarithmic Functions , Trigonometric Functions: Unit Circle Approach , Trigonometric Functions: Right Triangle Approach , Analytic Trigonometry , Polar Coordinates and Parametric Equations , Vectors in Two and Three , Systems of Equations and Inequalities , Conic Sections

Calculus
Suggested Age
1618
Prerequisites
This course may be done after Precalculus or an equivalent course.
Purpose
This Calculus course covers most of the first 2 semesters of college level calculus, using a college level calculus book. This course introduces students to the 4 key calculus concepts (limits, continuity, derivatives, and integrals) in a class of 1215 with an English speaking teacher rather than a class of 150 with an ESL Teaching Assistant. Only in this small context can a student learn how to think calculus rather than just do calculus. By establishing a solid foundation in the basics of calculus, this course is intended to prepare a student for college calculus and the things that build on it.
