• ## Mathematics 8

Mathematics for grade 8 continues to build on the concepts needed for success in high school-level algebra, geometry, and statistics. Students will explore real numbers and the subsets of the real number system. Proportional reasoning is expounded upon as students solve a variety of problems. Students find the volume and surface area of more complex three-dimensional figures and apply transformations to geometric shapes in the coordinate plane. Students will verify and apply the Pythagorean Theorem, creating a foundation for further study of triangular relationships in geometry. Students will represent univariate and bivariate data and make predictions by observing data patterns. Students build upon the algebraic concepts developed in grades 6 and 7, which include simplifying algebraic expressions, solving multistep equations and inequalities, and graphing linear functions.

This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Mathematics, Grade 8.

• ## Mathematics 6

Mathematics for grade 6 provides a transition from the emphasis placed on whole-number arithmetic in the elementary grades to foundations of algebra. The course will focus on rational numbers and operations involving rational numbers. Students will use ratios to compare data sets; recognize decimals, fractions, and percents as ratios; solve single-step and multistep problems, using positive rational numbers; and gain a foundation in the understanding of and operations with integers. Students will solve problems involving area and perimeter and begin to graph in a coordinate plane. In addition, students will build on the concept of graphical representation of data developed in the elementary grades and develop concepts regarding measures of center. Students will solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable and will use algebraic terminology. Students will represent proportional relationships using two variables as a precursor to the development of the concept of linear functions.

This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Mathematics, Grade 6.

• ## Algebra, Functions, and Data Analysis

This course is considered a bridge to Algebra II, as it builds upon the student’s understanding of Algebra I skills in preparation for the skills taught in Algebra II. Within the context of mathematical modeling and data analysis, students will study functions and their behaviors, systems of inequalities, probability, experimental design and implementation, and analysis of data.

This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Algebra, Functions & Data Analysis.

• ## AP Statistics

AP Statistics is a college-level, non-calculus-based course in introductory statistics designed to present strategies for collecting, organizing, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students will work on projects and investigative tasks involving the hands-on gathering and analysis of real-world data. They will learn to interpret and judge the statistical information in the world around them.

This course aligns with the College Board’s learning goals for AP Statistics.

• ## AP Calculus BC

AP Calculus BC includes concepts and applications of differential and integral calculus, as well as series and vector calculus. Course instruction is focused on the presentation of topics graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.

This course aligns with the College Board’s learning goals for AP Calculus BC.

• ## AP Calculus AB

AP Calculus AB includes concepts and applications of differential and integral calculus. Course instruction is focused on the presentation of topics graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.

This course aligns with the College Board’s learning goals for AP Calculus AB.

• ## Pre-Calculus/Mathematical Analysis

This course develops students’ understanding of algebraic and transcendental functions, parametric and polar equations, sequences, series, and vectors.

This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Mathematical Analysis.

• ## Trigonometry

Trigonometry focuses on the relationships of angles on a coordinate graph. Students will identify and use connections between right triangle ratios, trigonometric functions, and circular functions. This course will provide the needed material to finish preparing a student to continue in upper-level mathematics courses like Pre-Calculus and Calculus.

Note: Students planning on enrolling in an Algebra course past Algebra II may not need to enroll in this course, as the same content is often covered. Consult a local school counselor and check course descriptions at the local school before enrolling in this course.

This course aligns with the Virginia Standards of Learning for Trigonometry.

• ## Geometry

This course extends the skills and concepts taught in Algebra I through the study of plane and solid figures. Topics include a review of real numbers, segment and angle measurement, angle relationships, logic, proofs, reasoning, parallel and perpendicular lines, right triangles, trigonometry, quadrilaterals, convex polygons, tessellations, circles, constructions, coordinate geometry, area, similarity, and volume.
