Mathematics

  • Algebra 1

    Algebra I is the foundation—the skills acquired in this course contain the basic knowledge needed for all future high school math courses. The material covered in this course is important, but everyone can do it. Anyone can have a good time solving the hundreds of real-world problems algebra can help answer. Each module in this course is presented in a step-by-step way right on the computer screen. Hands-on labs make the numbers, graphs, and equations more real. The content in this course is tied to real-world applications like sports, travel, business, and health. This course is designed to give students the skills and strategies to solve all kinds of mathematical problems. Students will also acquire the confidence needed to handle everything high school math has in store for them.

    Honors Option: 
    Both segments will have an additional project. 

    • Prerequisites: Middle School Grade 7 Mathematics or Pre-Algebra
    • Honors Available
    • ORVSD
    • Two semesters
    • Worth 0.5 credits per semester.
  • Geometry

    Geometry is everywhere, not just in pyramids. Engineers use geometry to build highways and bridges. Artists use geometry to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on a geometric grid. Throughout this course, students travel a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem solving.

  • Algebra 2

    This course allows students to learn while having fun. Interactive examples help guide students’ journey through customized feedback and praise. Mathematical concepts are applied to everyday occurrences such as earthquakes, stadium seating, and purchasing movie tickets. Students investigate the effects of an equation on its graph through the use of technology. Students have opportunities to work with their peers on specific lessons. Algebra II is an advanced course using hands-on activities, applications, group interactions, and the latest technology.

  • Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications

    This course walks students through the information needed to make the best decisions with money. Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications is an advanced course incorporating real-world applications, collaboration, and calculations using technology. Students learn the formulas used to determine account balances, monthly payments, total costs, and more. They examine budgeting, spending, saving, investment, and retirement. Students explore mortgages and other debt structures and how to make good decisions about borrowing money. This knowledge will propel students into the future with a good foundation on how to handle finances.

    • Prerequisites: None
    • ORVSD
    • Two semesters
    • Worth 0.5 credits per semester.
  • Liberal Arts Math

    This course will enable students to strengthen algebraic and geometric concepts and skills necessary for further study of mathematics. Learning will take place as students spend time at an amusement park.

    • Prerequisites: Algebra 1
    • Two semesters
    • Worth 0.5 credits per semester.
  • Pre-Calculus

    Students, as mathematic analysts, will investigate how advanced mathematics concepts can solve problems encountered in operating national parks. The purpose of this course is to study functions and develop skills necessary for the study of calculus. The Pre-calculus course includes analytical geometry and trigonometry. Pre-calculus is an Honors level course.

    • Prerequisites: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry
    • ORVSD
    • Two semesters
    • Worth 0.5 credits per semester.
  • Calculus

    Walk in the footsteps of Newton and Leibnitz! An interactive text and graphing software combine with the exciting on-line course delivery to make Calculus an adventure. This course includes a study of limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration of algebraic, trigonometric and transcendental functions, and the applications of derivatives and integrals. This is an honors level course. 

    • Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus or Trigonometry/Analytical Geometry.
    • ORVSD
    • Two semesters
    • Worth 0.5 credits per semester.
  • AP Statistics

    This course is designed to provide college-level instruction on the concepts and tools for working with data. Students collect and analyze data and draw conclusions based on real-world information. The course challenges students to explore patterns, think critically, use a variety of tools and methods, and report their findings and conclusions.

    • Prerequisites: Algebra ll
    • Advanced Placement
    • ORVSD
    • Two semesters
    • Worth 0.5 credits per semester.
  • AP Calculus 1 (AB)

    This course offers a combination of assessment and instruction in an online environment containing but not limited to the areas of functions, functions and limits, differential calculus, and integral calculus. The course applies differential calculus to finding the slope of a curve, solving problems with related rates, calculating motion properties of moving particles, etc. It then applies integral calculus to finding the areas of irregular regions in a plane, volumes of rotation by various methods, and other scientific applications.

    The purpose of this course is to provide students with a deep understanding of the concepts of calculus in order to prepare them for the AP exam and for further college and university calculus courses. Because this class is presented in an online format, the pace and schedule varies from student to student, and no additional topics are presented past the exam time.

    All the instruction is provided for the student, with feedback given for every exam, where students are required to give exact mathematical answers, often in sentence form, and describe, in detail, how solutions were arrived at, and the reasoning or theorems applied in the process. The teacher is also available at least five days a week for one-on-one support and help for the students, in addition to holding online collaborative lessons and offering discussion-based assessment to students.

    • Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus or Trigonometry/Analytical Geometry.
