Mathematics Department

The math classes are instructed by two teachers, Michelle Metzger and Matthew Haden. Metzger teaches some of the higher learning classes including: calculus, precalculus, and statistics, geometry and algerbra. Haden works more with the underclassmen teaching algebra, algerbra 2 and geometry. Kids cant go through his class with out learing a ton about the latest in technology as well!

Courses Offered

General Math

Course Number: 
4105
Instructors: 
Mr. Lloyd Sommerer

The goals of this class are for students to learn to value mathematics, become problem solvers confident in their ability, to reason mathematically and to communicate mathematically. Units covered may include: whole numbers, decimals, number theory, fractions, expressions and equations, integers, rational numbers, ratios and proportions, percents, and equalities and inequalities.

Pre-Algebra

Course Number: 
4110/4111
Instructors: 
Mr. Dustin Phillips

Important concepts and skills are presented to prepare students for success in Algebra 1. Basic operations, use of variables, writing and solving algebraic expressions, and graphing functions will be taught. Numerous applications and problem solving strategies will help prepare students for further classroom studies as well as work outside the classroom.

Algebra 1

Course Number: 
4120/4121
Instructors: 
Mr. Dustin Phillips

Emphasis is placed on the structure of the real number system, the use of variables in algebraic expressions, the solving of equalities and inequalities, graphing skills, and the development of logical thinking skills for problem solving. Placement in this class is based on standardized test scores and recommendations of the middle school math department.

Geometry

Course Number: 
4130/4131
Instructors: 
Mr. Mark Watton

Geometry is a traditional approach to the study of the relationships between plane figures. Points of emphasis include the development of the student’s awareness of the geometric concepts present in the world, formal proofs, logic area relationships, and the deductive and inductive reasoning processes.

Algebra 2

Course Number: 
4140/4141
Instructors: 
Mr. Mark Watton

This is a rigorous course for average and above average students who have completed a year of Algebra and Geometry. Many of the same topics covered in Algebra 1 will be reviewed. A detailed presentation of the concepts of relation and function are given. Emphasis is given to the structure of Algebra and a formal introduction to Trigonometry.

Pre-Calculus

Course Number: 
4150/4151
Instructors: 
Mr. Dustin Phillips

This is a course for the advancement and enrichment of mathematics and to prepare students for Calculus their final year in high school or in college. Besides a basic review of advanced Algebra and Trigonometry, topics covered include: functions, relations, matrices, the nature of graphs and their inverses, analytical Geometry, and derivatives.

Calculus

Course Number: 
4160/4161
Instructors: 
Mr. Dustin Phillips

This course is intended for students who have a special talent in mathematics. It consists of working in Calculus and related topics comparable to courses in colleges and universities. If taken as College Credit Calculus through Concordia Seward the student may receive 4 credit hours from Concordia Seward.

Statistics

Course Number: 
4174
Instructors: 
Mr. Dustin Phillips

This class provides a greater understanding of probability and data analysis. It involves numerical interpretation and designing of graphs based on surveys both designed and given. Students will use technology as well as other methods to gain a vast understanding of what it means to be statistically literate in today’s society.

Math 7

Course Number: 
j740
Instructors: 
Mr. Mark Watton

Math 7 is a transition from basic arithmetic to more complex problem solving. Operations on whole numbers and decimals will be reviewed with more significance given to operations on fractions and percents, ratio and proportion, introduction to algebra, metric units, and other topics as time allows. Emphasis is given to communicating math concepts and explaining the reasoning behind procedures, as well as giving students confidence in applying skills to common situations.

Integrated math

Course Number: 
4180/4181
Instructors: 
Mrs. Tisha Arens

course topics include complex numbers, steps and piecewise functions, exponential functions, quadratic functions, inverse functions, right triangles, trigonometric functions, and circles, as well as data analysis and modeling. students approach and explore topics in math through real-world situations, helping them to gain an intuitive understanding of concepts while learning at the appropriate depth and rigor of a standards-based curriculum.
