PTHS Curriculum Guide 2024-2025

ALGEBRA II (338, 339) Class Level: 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Plane Geometry or Department Placement

This course is designed for the student who needs a refresher course in Algebra I, improving his or her skills, so success can be met in Algebra II/Trig. The course covers a variety of topics including review of Algebra I, and geometry, quadratic equations, matrices, statistics, and an introduction to trigonometry. A graphing calculator (TI-83 Plus or newer) is required.

ALGEBRA II/TRIG (340, 341) Class Level: 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Geometry or Department Placement

This course includes the study of rational, irrational, real, and complex numbers. Relations and functions are used as unifying concepts. The course covers linear and quadratic equations, conic sections, systems of first-and second-degree open sentences, radicals, exponential and logarithmic functions. The study of trigonometry through consideration of the circular functions is introduced. A graphing calculator (TI-83 Plus or newer) is required.

FOUNDATIONS FOR COLLEGE MATHEMATICS (346, 347) Class Level: 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Department Approval or Elective if 3 math classes have been passed

This course corresponds to Heartland Community College courses that provide a fundamental understanding of mathematical concepts needed for college. This course corresponds to Math 93 and Math 94 which focus on students who need to develop their math skills prior to taking college level mathematics. Level 1 topics include: rational expressions, functions, radical expressions, and linear systems. Level 2 topics include: compound inequalities, systems of equations, complex numbers, and quadratic equations –students enrolled must possess self-discipline in order to work through computer-based modules.

PRE-CALCULUS (370, 371) Class Level: 11, 12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: Algebra II/Trig

This course presents and develops all of the necessary topics in preparation for a Calculus course. Geometry is integrated with algebraic concepts. Trigonometry, exponents, and logarithms are covered as a review of Algebra II/Trig. Vectors are studied in both two and three dimensions. Other topics included are complex numbers, sequences, and series with an introduction to limits, probability, statistics, matrices, polynomials, advanced topics in curve sketching with polar graphs, and an introduction to derivatives. A graphing calculator (TI-83 Plus or newer) is required.
