Description: Algebra I is the foundation! The skills you'll acquire in this course contain the basic knowledge you'll need for all your high school math courses. Relax! This stuff is important, but everyone can do it. Everyone can have a good time solving the hundreds of real-world problems that are answered with algebra. Each module in this course is presented in a step-by-step way right on your computer screen. You won't have to stare at the board from the back of a classroom. There are even hands-on labs to make the numbers, graphs and equations more real. It's all tied to real-world applications like sports, travel, business and health. This course is designed to give you the skills and strategies for solving all kinds of mathematical problems. It will also give you the confidence that you can handle everything that high school math has in store for you.
Description: This course connects algebra to the real world. It also demystifies algebra, making it easier to understand and master. The goal is to create a foundation in math that will stay with you throughout high school.
Description: Students in this course will walk in the footsteps of Newton and Leibnitz. An interactive text and graphing software combine with the exciting on-line course delivery to make calculus an adventure. The course includes a study of limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration of algebraic, trigonometric, and transcendental functions, and the applications of derivatives and integrals.
Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre Calculus or Trigonometry
Description: For those students needing a slower approach at learning Algebra. This course will be held in Acellus, a different website than Brain Honey. A recommendation from the teacher or guidance counselor is needed.
Description: One day in 2580 B.C., a very serious architect stood on a dusty desert with a set of plans. His plans called for creating a structure 480 feet, with a square base and triangular sides, using stone blocks weighing two tons each. The Pharaoh wanted the job done right. The better our architect understood geometry, the better were his chances for staying alive. Geometry is everywhere, not just in pyramids. Engineers use geometry to bank highways and build bridges. Artists use geometry to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on a geometric grid. Throughout this course, we'll take you on a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem solving. This course is all about points, lines and planes. Just as importantly, this course is about acquiring a basic tool for understanding and manipulating the real world around you.
Prerequisites: Algebra I
Description: This course will review some of the fundamental math skills you learned in middle school, and then get you up to speed on the basic concepts of algebra. This course will be taught as a "blended" course. Students from the Grantsburg High School will be attending simultaneously as the teacher works with both traditional and online learners. Pre-approval is necessary to take this course. Call Mr. Beesley, Mr. Bettendorf, or Mr. Mark Johnson for more information.
Description: The total weight of two beluga whales and three orca whales is 36,000 pounds. As you'll see in this course, if given one additional fact, you can determine the weight of each whale. To answer this weighty question, we'll give you all the math tools you'll need. The setting for this course is an amusement park with animals, rides, and games. Your job will be to apply what you learn to dozens of real-world scenarios. Equations, geometric relationships, and statistical probabilities can sometimes be dull, but not in this class! Your park guide (teacher) will take you on a grand tour of problems and puzzles that show how things work and how mathematics provides valuable tools for everyday living. Come reinforce your existing algebra and geometry skills to learn solid skills with the algebraic and geometric concepts you'll need for further study of mathematics. We have an admission ticket with your name on it and we promise an exciting ride with no waiting!
Description: Students, as mathematic analysts, will investigate how advanced mathematics concepts can solve problems encountered in operating national parks. The purpose of this course is to study functions and develop skills necessary for the study of calculus. The pre-calculus course includes analytical geometry and trigonometry.
Prerequisites: Advanced Algebra or Algebra 2
Description: An interactive text, graphing software and math symbol software combine with the exciting on-line course delivery to make Calculus an adventure. This course is designed to prepare the student for the AP Calculus AB exam given each year in May. With continuous enrollment, students can start the course and begin working on Calculus as early as spring of the previous year.
Description: An interactive text, graphing software and math symbol software combine with the exciting on-line course delivery to make Calculus an adventure. This course is designed to prepare the student for the AP Calculus BC exam given each year in May. With continuous enrollment, students can start the course and begin working on Calculus as early as spring of the previous year.
Description: Statistics are used everywhere from fast food businesses ordering hamburger patties to insurance companies setting rates to predicting a student's future success by the results of a test. Students will become familiar with the vocabulary, method, and meaning in the statistics which exist in the world around them. This is an applied course in which students actively construct their own understanding of the methods, interpretation, communication, and application of statistics. Each unit is framed by enduring understandings and essential questions designed to allow students a deep understanding of the concepts at hand rather than memorization and emulation. Students will also complete several performance tasks throughout the year consisting of relevant, open-ended tasks requiring students to connect multiple statistical topics together.
