    Foundations of Math I- Foundations of Math I is designed to assist students in mastering the algebraic skills necessary for success in Math I. Students will learn to (1) operate with the real numbers to solve problems; (2) find, identify, and interpret the slopes and intercepts of a linear relation; (3) visually determine a line of best fit for a given scatter plot, explain the meaning of the line, and make predictions using the line; (4) collect, organize, analyze, and display data to solve problems; (5) apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems. Curriculum for this course is VMath and prerequisite Math I priority standards. This course provides one unit of elective credit, but does not count as one of the four math credits required to graduate meeting the future-ready core requirements.

    Math III Honors- This course continues the development of algebraic structures begun in Algebra I with the study of functions, irrational and complex numbers, quadratic functions, systems of equation, conic sections and exponential and logarithmic functions. These topics are the same as regular Algebra II, but will be covered in grater depth. 
       Grade: 10-12 
       Weight: H 
       Prerequisite: Math II or Math II Honors
     
    Advanced Functions and Modeling- Make your fourth year of mathematics a study of the concepts of statistics and functions. This will fulfill the course requirement necessary for admission to a UNC school while enabling you to broaden your knowledge of mathematics to include applied statistics and functions. This course should not replace Pre-Calculus Honors. 
       Grade: 11-12 
       Weight: S 
       Prerequisite: Math III or Honors Math III
     
    Essentials of College Math- This course emphasizes understanding of math concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. Students learn the context behind the procedure: why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem, for example. This equips them with higher-order thinking to apply math skills, functions and concepts in different situations. The course prepares students for college-level math assignments based on the content. This course is not designed to prepare students for college-level math in STEM majors; however, it is appropriate for students who desire to attend a four-year university and major in humanities. This course is recognized by the UNC systems as a 4th level course.

       Weight: S 
       Prerequisite: Math III or Honors Math III
     
    Discrete Math-  Discrete Mathematics introduces students to the mathematics of networks, social choice, and decision making. Students will use matrices and recursively-defined relationships to solve problems, as well as working with simulations for probability models. Applications and modeling are central to this course of study. Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to calculators and application software, should be used regularly in the classroom. The final exam for this course is the NC Final Exam for Discrete Mathematics.
