2550 Quantitative Reasoning Map
Grade: 1112
Course #: 2550
Length: Full Year
Credits: 2 credits
Diploma: General, Core 40, Academic Honors, Technical Honors
Dual Credit available for Ivy Tech Math 123
Recommended Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Algebra II
Quantitative Reasoning is a mathematics course focused on the study of numeracy, ratio and proportional reasoning, modeling, probabilistic reasoning to assess risk, and statistics. Students build knowledge of and confidence with basic mathematical/analytical concepts and operations required for problemsolving, decisionmaking, and economic productivity in realworld applications and prepare for an increasingly informationbased society in which the ability to use and critically evaluate information, especially numerical information, is essential. Technology, such as computers and graphing calculators should be used frequently. This higherlevel mathematics course is designed to align with collegelevel quantitative reasoning courses for dual secondary/college credit. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

2595 PRIME Math
<
Grade Level: 12
Course #: 2595
Length: 2 Semesters
Credit(s): Two
Diploma: Core 40, Academic Honors, Technical Honors
Recommended Prerequisite: Algebra I, Algebra II, GeometryThe PRIME Math course utilizes curriculum developed by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) that includes and reinforces the Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Statistics skills necessary for postsecondary success. This course emphasizes understanding of math concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. PRIME math emphasizes students' reasoning and sense making about procedures (e.g., why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem). This equips them with higherorder thinking skills in order to apply math skills, functions, and concepts in different situations. The course is intended for students who currently have achieved the minimum math requirements at the secondary level, but need additional experiences to enhance their mathematical knowledge before pursuing creditbearing courses at a postsecondary institution.

Prerequisite: Recommended Successful Completion of Algebra II; GeometryPreCalculus: Algebra extends the foundations of algebra and functions developed in previous courses to new functions, including exponential and logarithmic functions, and to sequences and series. The course provides students with the skills and understandings that are necessary for advanced manipulation of angles and measurement. PreCalculus: Algebra is made up of five strands: Functions; Quadratic, Polynomial, and Rational Equations and Functions; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Sequences and Series; and Conics. The course is designed for students who expect math to be a major component of their future college and career experiences, and as such it is designed to provide students with strong foundations for calculus and other higherlevel math courses.
PreCalculus: Trigonometry provides students with the skills and understandings that are necessary for advanced manipulation of angles and measurement. Trigonometry provides the foundation for common periodic functions that are encountered in many disciplines, including music, engineering, medicine, finance, and nearly all other STEM disciplines. Trigonometry consists of six strands: Unit Circle; Triangles; Periodic Functions; Identities; Polar Coordinates and Complex Numbers; and Vectors. Students will advance their understanding of imaginary numbers through an investigation of complex numbers and polar coordinates. A strong understanding of complex and imaginary numbers is a necessity for fields such as engineering and computer programming.
