Math Course Decriptions
Mathematics For College Readiness
1200700
1 year, Grades 11-12
This course is targeted for grade 12 students, whose test scores on the Postsec-ondary Educational Readiness Test (PERT) are at or below the established cut scoresfor mathematics, indicating that they are not yet “college ready” in mathematics or simply need some more additional instruc-tion in content to prepare them for successin college level mathematics. This class incorporates the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Content: Expressions and Equations; the Number System; Function; Algebra; Geometry; Number and Quantity; Statistics and Probability; and the Common Core Standards for High School Modeling. The standards align with the Mathematics Postsecondary Readiness Competencies deemed necessary for entry-level college courses.

Trigonometry
12113005
½ year, Grades 11-12
Prerequisites: Algebra II or Algebra II Honors
The purpose of this course is to provide students with the study of circular and trigonometric functions and their applications. Topics shall include, but not be limited to, circular functions; trigonometric identities; graphs of trigonometric functions; particular and general solutions of trigonometric equations; and solutions of right and oblique triangles.
SPECIAL NOTE: The Earning of Credit in this course precludes the Earning of Credit in Analysis of Functions.


Mathematics for College Success
1200410
1/2 year, Grade 12
This course is targeted for Grade 12 students, whose test scores on the Postsecondary Educational Readiness Test (P.E.R.T.) are below the established cut scores for mathematics, indicating that they are not yet “college ready” in mathematics. This course incorporates the Florida Standards for Mathematical Practices as well as the following Florida Standards for Mathematical Content: Expressions and Equations, The Number System, Ratios and Proportional Relationships, Functions, Algebra, Geometry, Number and Quantity, Statistics and Probability, and the Florida Standards for High School Modeling. The standards align with the Mathematics Postsecondary Readiness Competencies deemed necessary for entry-level college courses.


Math Analysis Honors
12013005
1/2 year, Grades 11-12
Prerequisites Trigonometry
Meets requirements Graduation requirements for mathematics. This course will enable students to extend their knowledge of functions, acquire additional modes of mathematical reasoning at an introductory level, and develop the skills necessary for the study of calculus.


Algebra I
12003104
1 year, Grades 9-12
