Mathematics Courses

While math may never be the most popular subject in school, it is still important for students to have a firm understanding of mathematical concepts. As high school students, we may think to ourselves, "I'm never going to need this."
However, that simply isn't true: mathematics is used in every field. TCSC is fortunate to be able to offer a multitude of math courses for all skill and interest levels.
Mathematics Course Descriptions

Advanced College Project (ACP) PreCalculus (Alg) (2564)
PreCalculus: Algebra extends the foundations of algebra and functions developed in previous courses to new functions, including exponential and logarithmic functions, and to sequences and series. The course provides students with the skills and understandings that are necessary for advanced manipulation of angles and measurement. PreCalculus: Algebra is made up of five strands: Functions; Quadratic, Polynomial, and Rational Equations and Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Sequences and Series; and Conics.
The course is designed for students who expect math to be a major component of their future college and career experiences, and as such it is designed to provide students with strong foundations for calculus and other higherlevel math courses. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

 Counts as a Mathematics course for all diplomas
 Actual course title and university name may be appended to the end of the course title on the student transcript.
 Courses that use this title are those that do not meet specific high school standards for a corresponding high school course, as they are standards beyond what is taught in the high school.
 Courses that use this title are most often those taught through the postsecondary campus, taught either online or in traditional settings or a combination, and taught by higher education faculty.
 Qualifies as a quantitative reasoning course

Advance College Project (ACP) PreCalculus (Trig) (2566)
PreCalculus: Trigonometry provides students with the skills and understandings that are necessary for advanced manipulation of angles and measurement. Trigonometry provides the foundation for common periodic functions that are encountered in many disciplines, including music, engineering, medicine, finance, and nearly all other STEM disciplines. Trigonometry consists of six strands: Unit Circle; Triangles; Periodic Functions; Identities; Polar Coordinates and Complex Numbers; and Vectors.
Students will advance their understanding of imaginary numbers through an investigation of complex numbers and polar coordinates. A strong understanding of complex and imaginary numbers is a necessity for fields such as engineering and computer programming. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Algebra I (2520)
Algebra I formalizes and extends the mathematics students learned in the middle grades. Algebra I is made up of six strands: Number Systems and Expressions; Functions; Linear Equations, Inequalities, and Functions; Systems of Equations and Inequalities; Quadratic and Exponential Equations and Functions; and Data Analysis and Statistics.
These critical areas deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Students will also engage in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions.

 Students pursuing Core 40, Core 40 with Academics Honors, or Core 40 with Technical Honors diploma should receive credit for Algebra I by the end of Grade 9

Algebra II (2522)
Algebra II builds on work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions and allows for students to extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms.
Algebra II is made up of seven strands: Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability; Arithmetic and Structure of Expressions; Functions; Systems of Equations and Inequalities; Quadratic Equations and Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Equations and Functions; and Polynomial, Rational, and Other Equations and Functions.

Analytical Algebra II (2524)
Analytical Algebra II builds on previous work with linear, quadratic and exponential functions and extends to include polynomial, rational, radical, logarithmic, and other functions. Data analysis, statistics, and probability content should be included throughout the course, as students collect and use univariate and bivariate data to create and interpret mathematical models. Additionally, Analytical Algebra II should focus on the application of mathematics in various disciplines including business, finance, science, career and technical education, and social sciences using technology to model realworld problems with various functions, using and translating between multiple representations.
The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. This course is not recommended for students interested in pursuing a STEM degree at a fouryear institution; this course does not prepare students for PreCalculus: Algebra / PreCalculus Trigonometry.

 Required Prerequisites: none
 Recommended Prerequisites: Algebra I
 2 semester course, 1 credit per semester
 Fulfills the Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III requirement for all diplomas
If students use this course to fulfill this credit, the parent and student must sign a consent form notifying the parent and the student that enrollment in Analytical Algebra II may affect the student’s ability to attend a particular postsecondary educational institution or enroll in a particular course at a particular postsecondary educational institution because Analytical Algebra II may not align with academic requirements established by the postsecondary educational institution.

CCR Bridge Math/Prime Math (2595)
The PRIME Math course utilizes a curriculum developed by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), that includes and reinforces the Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Statistics skills necessary for postsecondary success. This course emphasizes understanding of math concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. PRIME math emphasizes students' reasoning and sense making about procedures (e.g., why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem). This equips them with higherorder thinking skills in order to apply math skills, functions, and concepts in different situations.
The course is intended for students who currently have achieved the minimum math requirements at the secondary level, but need additional experience to enhance their mathematical knowledge before pursuing creditbearing courses at a postsecondary institution. In order to offer this course, the instructor must have received training by SREB or IDOE. Additionally, the school and the instructor must commit to teaching the PRIME math curriculum with fidelity.

Geometry (2532)
Geometry formalizes and extends students ’geometric experiences from the middle grades. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Seven critical areas comprise the Geometry course: Logic and Proofs; Points, Lines, Angles, and Planes; Triangles; Quadrilaterals and Other Polygons; Circles; Transformations; and Threedimensional Solids.
