High School Mathematics Courses
This Consumer Math course prepares students for making financial decisions with instruction about buying a car, credit card charges, taxes, interest on loans and savings, personal banking, and costs of transportation, food, clothing, utilities, insurance, filling out income tax forms, planning vacations, starting a small business, and more. Being a good steward of the Lord‘s money is a primary emphasis.
The purpose of this course is to give students a comprehensive foundation in all topics that will enable them to confidently move into One Day Academy Calculus or an entry level college course. This class provides an in-depth critical thinking component, enhancing not only their math understanding but transferring to other disciplines as well.
This course is the first of Saxon’s two-course sequence which integrates geometry into the algebraic sequence. This allows a student to get to calculus before graduation. The course content includes equations and functions (linear, radical, quadratic, rational, and exponential), polynomials, factoring, systems of equations, rate, surface area and volume, ratios and proportion, scientific notation, introduction to statistics, and Pythagorean theorem. A supplementary Geometry proofs course may be taken over the summer, or students may elect to take a year-long traditional Geometry course.
This Calculus course covers the first semester of college level calculus, along with many important concepts in the second semester of Calculus using a college level calculus book. This course introduces students to the four key calculus concepts (limits, continuity, derivatives, and integrals) with a small class size and a caring teacher. 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 fully prepare a student for college calculus and set a student up for success in any calculus based major.
This course is the second of Saxon’s two-course sequence which integrates geometry into the algebraic sequence. This allows a student to get to calculus before graduation. This course includes graphing, real and complex numbers, conversion by unit multipliers, proportions, percents, rate, exponents, roots, simplifying various expressions, simplifying and solving equations, linear equations, quadratic equations, trigonometry, and includes an introduction to several key science topics including vectors, pH, trig functions, and standard gas laws.
