# PTHS Curriculum Guide 2024-2025

MATHEMATICS

CONCEPTS IN ALGEBRA (310, 311) Class Level: 9, 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Grade 9 or approval by Mathematics Department Chair and Principal

This course is designed to prepare students for the Algebra I curriculum. Topics that will be covered include real numbers and exponents, expressions and equations, congruence and similarity, functions, linear systems, Pythagorean systems, volume, patterns, and the relationship between variables.

ALGEBRA I (330, 331) Class Level: 9, 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: None

This course considers number systems from natural numbers through real numbers together with their fundamental properties. Topics include set concepts, variables, equations and inequalities, linear equations, systems of equations and inequalities, and foundational Geometry.

PLANE GEOMETRY (360, 361) Class Level: 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Algebra I

This course is designed for those students who need a basic course in geometry with minimal emphasis on proof. It provides a simple, yet thorough, introduction to the fundamentals of Euclidean geometry. Students may not receive credit for both Geometry and Plane Geometry. A graphing calculator (TI-83 Plus or newer; TI-84 preferred) is recommended. This course also includes an introduction to Quadratics including factoring, the quadratic formula, and characteristics of Quadratic graphs.

GEOMETRY (350, 351) Class Level: 9, 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Algebra I

This course stresses the basic structure of Geometry and the development of reasoning and proof. In addition to a foundation for Geometry-triangles, other polygons, relations among lines and planes- this course includes computation of areas and volumes, coordinate Geometry, and introduction to right triangle trigonometry. This course also includes Quadratics including factoring, the quadratic formula, completing the square and characteristics of Quadratic graphs.
