78 Math Support STU119
Math Support is required for middleschool math students who have either recieved a Needs Improvement or Warning score on their last MCAS test, and/or are not being successful in their regular math class. The support classes are broken up into three areas aimed to support students success in their general math class: preteaching and reteaching material, filling in skills gaps from previous math courses, and homework completion. There is no homework for this course, and students are assessed based on effort and progress.

Foundations of Geometry MTH130
Prerequisites: recommendation

Foundations of Math MTH122
Prerequisites: recommendation


Geometry MTH110
In Geometry, students prove and apply geometric theorems about lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, and threedimensional solids. They also explore patterns and consistencies in the transformation of figures on the Cartesian plane. Finally, students develop models to investigate independent and conditional probabilities. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course.

Prerequisites: MTH078 OR MTH109

Honors AB Calculus MTH126
This is a course in singlevariable calculus that includes techniques and applications of the derivative, techniques and applications of the definite integral, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. It is equivalent to at least a semester of calculus at most colleges and universities. Algebraic, numerical, and graphical representations are emphasized throughout the course. Students will have enough exposure to Calculus to take the AP Calc AB exam with independent studying required. Students will receive nightly homework, quizzes every few weeks and major assessments each unit.
Prerequisites: MTH103


Math 7 MTH107
Students focus on number sense (integers, fractions, decimals, and percents), 2D/3D geometry, expressions and equations, ratios and proportions, and probability. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course. There will be nightly homework (approximately 30 minutes), major assessments (tests, projects, quizzes) every three weeks, and a final exam at the end of the year.
Prerequisites: None

Math 8 MTH108
Students focus on equations and variables, transformational geometry, Pythagorean Theorem, systems of equations, problem solving, exponents and roots, and 3D geometry. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course. There will be nightly homework (approximately 30 minutes), major assessments (tests, projects, quizzes) every three weeks, and a final exam at the end of the year.

Mathematical Modeling MTH117
This class will begin by choosing a contemporary problem or issue to address, and then students will collect data and learn how to utilize mathematics to analyze the data, run simulations, and recommend policy.
Prerequisites: MTH111 or MTH130

PreCalculus MTH103
Precalculus is primarily a survey of the families of functions that mathematics utilizes in trying to solve problems and make sense of the world. We examine how these functions behave, how we can manipulate them, and how we can use them to model the real world in order to derive meaningful and useful information. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the lessons in the course. Students should expect daily homework assignments (about an hour per class), and tests approximately every three weeks.
Prerequisites: MTH111


Programming and Game Design MTH132
Students will use the Unity 3D game engine as a platform to learn the C# programming language. Through the development of several simple games, students will explore the power of programming as well as the artistic expression that Unity makes accessible to everyone. The focus will be on the scripting side of Unity and not on the creation of 2D and 3D art assets.
Prerequisites: MTH109

Statistics MTH115
Statistics is the science of learning from data, and of measuring, controlling, and communicating uncertainty. Statisticians apply statistical thinking and methods to a wide variety of scientific, social, and business endeavors. Students in this course will use data to solve problems in a wide variety of fields and apply mathematical and statistical knowledge to social, economic, medical, political, and ecological problems.
