Curriculum > Math

Students in grades 1 – 6 are introduced to and constantly build on concepts and skills typically found in an accelerated curriculum which is aligned with Common Core State Standards. Pearson Publisher is the main learning resource included with digital access and other options. Additional resources are used to assist students in reaching competency in each skill. Students begin at the appropriate grade level within a segment based on previous math coursework. Each course is strand-based, and students are tracked independently in each of the strands: Integers, Fractions, Logic and Reasoning, Measurement, Geometry, and Data / Statistics / Probability. Topics covered in each strand include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, number concepts, equations, word problems, geometry, measurement, probability, statistics, graphs, functions, logic, and set theory. Hands-on application and higher order thinking skills are stressed on.  

 

As students progress through grades 7 – 10, they continue building on Common Core State Standards. As in grades 1 – 6, additional resources are used in helping students obtain the skills needed to meet the required international standards, and prepare them to be confident in algebra, equations, proportional reasoning, linear functions, inequalities, solving systems of equations and inequalities, exponents, polynomials, factoring, quadratic functions, radicals, coordinate geometry, lines, planes, angles, deductive reasoning, parallel lines and planes, congruent triangles, quadrilaterals, inequalities for triangles, similar polygons, circles, loci and area of plane figures. In addition, from grade 9 students begin working toward gaining the required credit hours for graduating with an American Diploma.

 

Grades 11 and 12 are the final years for graduating from the American Diploma Program. During these years, students cover a wide variety of topics that are designed to prepare a student for calculus course work, which is taken in the first year of college. The level and demand on the courses are very high, as well as the expectations for student achievement. The main topics included in the course are equations, inequalities, functions and their graphs, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry and trigonometric functions, analytic trigonometry, systems of equations and inequalities, matrices and determinants, sequences and series, limits, integrals and its applications and different equations. In addition to the regular course work, students are prepared for SAT and GAT using test prep materials.
