Math Courses

Course: Algebra I part 1 and part 2
Prerequisite: None
2 Credits - 1 elective credit and 1 Alg 1 credit
Algebra 1 introduces students to variables, algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, functions, and all their multiple representations. In this class, students will develop the ability to explore and solve real-world application problems, demonstrate the appropriate use of graphing calculators, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly. This course lays the foundation for mathematical literacy that will help students be successful in every subsequent course in mathematics.

Course: Honors Algebra I
Prerequisite: Student, Parent, and Teacher recommendation 
1 Credit

Honors Algebra 1 extends the concepts of variables, algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, functions, and all their multiple representations. In this class, students will develop the ability to explore and solve real-world application problems, demonstrate the appropriate use of graphing calculators, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly. This course lays the foundation for mathematical literacy that will help students be successful in every subsequent course in mathematics. The instructional pace is faster than that of Algebra I parts 1 and 2.

Course: Algebra II
Prerequisite: Geometry
1 Credit
Algebra 2 is the third course in the mathematics sequence at OHS. Among other things, Algebra 2 guides students through the basics of Quadratic Functions, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Polynomial Functions, Rational Functions, Radical Functions, Sequences and Series, Exponential Functions, Logarithmic Functions, Trigonometric Functions, and Probability and Statistics.

Course: Honors Algebra II
Grade: 10
Prerequisites: Geometry and Student, Parent, Teacher recommendation
1 Credit

This course extends the concepts and applications of the algebraic process. Major topics include: complex numbers, relations and functions, exponents and logarithms, quadratic relations, systems of equations and inequalities, probability and statistics. Hamilton County End of Course Test Required. The instructional pace is faster than that of Algebra II. Tennessee EOC required.

Course: Geometry part 1 and part 2
Prerequisite: Algebra I
2 Credits - 1 elective credit and 1 Geometry credit
The Geometry course is a comprehensive look at the study of geometric concepts including the basic elements of geometry, proofs, parallel and perpendicular lines, the coordinate plane, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, trigonometry, congruence and similarity, surface area, volume and transformations.

Course: Honors Geometry
Prerequisites: "B" average in Algebra I and Student, Parent, Teacher recommendation
1 Credit

This course includes an emphasis on two and three-dimensional concepts Topics include lines, planes, polygons, polyhedra, congruency, similarity, right angles, circles, cones, cylinders, spheres, coordinate geometry, and inductive and deductive reasoning. The instructional pace is faster than that of Geometry. Tennessee EOC required. 

Course: Honors Pre-Calculus
Prerequisite: Honors Algebra II
1 Credit
Precalculus is designed to prepare students for college level STEM focused courses. Students extend their knowledge of the complex number system to use complex numbers in polynomial identities and equations. Topics for student mastery include vectors and matrix quantities, sequences and series, parametric equations, and conic sections. Students use previous knowledge to continue progressing in their understanding of trigonometric functions and using regression equations to model quantitative data.
Course: AP Statistics Prerequisite: Algebra II Additional Fee: $96 exam fee 1 credit
Learn about the major concepts and tools used for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. You’ll explore statistics through discussion and activities, and you'll design surveys and experiments. Students who are eligible for fee waivers with the school system may be eligible for a fee waiver on the AP exam through the AP Program.

Course: AP Calculus AB
Prerequisite: Honors PreCalculus
Additional Fees: $96 AP exam fee
1 Credit
AP Calculus AB is equivalent to a first-semester college calculus course. Topics include functions, limits and continuity, derivatives, and integrals. The course will focus on applying the skills and concepts of calculus to modeling and solving problems across multiple representations. The advanced placement course will use a curriculum based upon the curriculum of the state of Tennessee and the guidelines of the College Board. Students who are eligible for fee waivers with the school system may be eligible for a fee waiver on the AP exam through the AP Program.

Course: Statistics
Prerequisite: Algebra II
1 Credit

Statistics is a course offered as the fourth math. This course covers sampling, data organization, variability and central tendency, probability, distributions and confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, inference and regression.

Course: Applied Mathematical Concepts
Prerequisite: Algebra II
1 Credit
Applied Mathematical Concepts is a course for students who need their fourth math. The main goal of Applied Math is to put tools in the student's toolbox for their life outside of high school. We cover both Statistics for students going into college and Financial Math for any student whether they are headed to college or straight into the workforce. We also put an emphasis on presenting one's ideas in a professional manner for when they pursue their chosen careers.
