Mathematics Program

The following details about our Mathematics Program can be found in our Course Catalog. Here is some information of what students can expect from their Mathematics Classes while attending Six Rivers.
 
 
MATH 1
9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th (Year Course)
This course re-emphasizes the mathematics students were exposed to in middle school.  The Course focuses on building prerequisite skills including fractions, percents, proportions, signed numbers, variable expressions, solutions of equations, basic geometry, linear equations and graphing.  Students do more individual work and may progress through the material at their own speed.  A majority of the work for this course is done in class.  A grade of C or better is required to move to the next course, Integrated Math 1.  
Math 1 is not a college preparatory course.

INTEGRATED MATH 1
9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th Grades (Year Course)
Prerequisite: C or better in Math 1 or Teacher Recommendation
Integrated Math I formalizes the mathematics students learned in middle school.  The course will focus on six main topics: (1) extend understanding of numerical manipulation to algebraic manipulation; (2) synthesize understanding of function; (3) deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships; (4) apply linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend; (5) establish criteria for congruence based on rigid motions; and (6) apply the Pythagorean Theorem to the coordinate plane.  A grade of C- or better is required to take the next course, Integrated Math 2.  
 
INTEGRATED MATH 2
9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th Grades (Year Course)
Prerequisite:  C- or better in Integrated Math 1 or Teacher Recommendation
The Integrated Math II course  extends the concepts from Integrated Math I.  The instructional time will focus on five critical areas: (1) extending the laws of exponents to rational exponents; (2) comparing key characteristics of quadratic functions with those of linear and exponential functions; (3) creating and solving equations and inequalities involving linear, exponential, and quadratic expressions; (4) extending work with probability; and (5) establishing criteria for similarity of triangles based on dilations and proportional reasoning. A grade of C- or better is required to take the next course in the sequence, Integrated Math III.  

INTEGRATED MATH 3
9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th Grades (Year Course)
Prerequisite:  C- or better in Integrated Math 2 or Teacher Recommendation
The Integrated Math III course extends the concepts taught in Integrated Math II.  The instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) applying methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data; (2) expanding understanding of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions; (3) expanding right triangle trigonometry to include general triangles; and (4) consolidating functions and geometry to create models and solve contextual problems. Extensive homework is required daily. A grade of C- or better is required to take the next course in the sequence, Integrated Math III Honors.
