# Mathematics Programs

St. Georges Technical High School offers the following Mathematics courses: Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, Integrated Math III, Statistics, Intermediate Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and P.A.S.S. Math.
Integrated Math I is year one of an integrated, standards-based program that includes the following: an Algebra and Function Strand to model patterns of change through linear and exponential problem situations; a Geometry Strand to visualize and understand properties of two and three dimensional shapes; and a Statistics Strand to develop abilities to analyze and summarize authentic data.

Integrated Math II is year two of an integrated, standards-based program that includes the following: a Statistics and Probability and Probability strand to model situations involving chance by using simulation and mathematical analysis and construct probability distributions; an Algebra and Function strand using matrix operations, systems of linear equations, quadratic functions, and power models; and a Geometry strand to develop understanding of coordinate methods for representation, distance and midpoint formulas, slope, reflections, and rotations on a coordinate grid.

Integrated Math III is year three of an integrated, standards-based program that includes the following: an Algebra and Function strand to develop symbol sense and algebraic reasoning while modeling and solving literal, linear, and quadratic functions; and a Geometric strand that models to analyze properties of angles, lines, and plane shapes, and uses these shapes to investigate trigonometry ratios and the laws of trigonometry.

Statistics is a course dealing with the collection and summarization of data. Students will be given different methods of statistical analysis in order to draw conclusions about data. Statistical models will be used to interpret the data. Students will learn to make intelligent and productive comparisons of data and will learn techniques for describing and exploring data sets. Students will also study probability and its relationship to statistics.

Intermediate Algebra is a college intended course that includes the following: solving equations and inequalities, an understanding of linear functions and systems of equations, solving and graphing quadratic functions, working with polynomials, rational expressions, and properties of exponents, and an understanding of operations involving roots and radicals. The curriculum is designed to give students the algebraic foundation needed for college mathematics It uses real world applications and encourages students to communicate and justify their algebraic thinking graphically, tabularly, and symbolically.

Pre-Calculus is a college intended course for students who have taken either Integrated Math IV or Intermediate Algebra. It follows a traditional symbolic algebra course as well as readiness for calculus.

P.A.S.S. Math is a one-semester course designed to target math standards tested on the eighth grade DSTP. This course consists of lessons in number sense, geometry, and proportional reasoning. It also includes test-taking skills, understanding and using rubrics used on the DSTP, and practicing items that they may see when retaking the test. This course also introduces students to the expectations of high school mathematics so they can be better prepared to succeed in our Integrated Mathematics program.
