Regarding Math Class this Year:  


At this time- we will be beginning with prerequisite work and are then moving on to trigonometric Functions.  We will begin with the "tree of numbers" and progress into the algebra of numbers. The 6 trigonometric graphs are introduced and applied to a variety of situations. 

Here is the syllabus for trigonometry:
Trig Syllabus

Probability and Statistics

The major focus for the study of "Probability and Statistics" is to introduce to the student the  basics of general probability and "cookiecutter" statistics.  This one semester (non-math credit) is designed for the student wishing to improve on his/her knowledge of non-traditional math topics.  Topics include gaming devices, schemes, overall knowledge of "large numbers", the "law of averages", statistical devices, visual interpretations of data, swaying opinions via statistics, poll taking,reaching conclusions using data, and general knowledge of  inferences. 

College Algebra

This full year course provides the student all the tools to do college level algebra.  Each student has experienced Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry.  (most students have had a course in Trigonometry or Pre-Calculus)  Most recently . . .  we have experienced studies in prerequisite/review work;  solving linear equations;  word problems of different sorts with its appropriate math computations;  parallel and perpendicular lines;  relations and functions;  rational and polynomial functions;  exponents and logarithms;  some trigonometry concepts.   In January students will have the opportunity to apply for dual enrollment with Hagerstown Community College.  Students will  have the capability to receive 3 college level math credits which (we are told) are transferable to most colleges or universities.
