    Financial Literacy (H1025PV) 

    This one-semester class will integrate mathematics standards and national standards for financial literacy. Topics include earning income, buying goods and services, using credit, saving money, financial investing, and insurance. Upon completion of this course, students will have strategies for life after high school. These skills include finding a job, paying for rent, utilities, transportation, food, and budgeting for unknown circumstances. Students will explore credit and interest as they relate to spending and saving money.

     

    Liberal Arts Math Online (H1173PVS1/H1173PVS2)

    Liberal Arts Mathematics 1, semesters 1 & 2 addresses the need for an elective course that focuses on reinforcing, deepening, and extending a student’s mathematical understanding. Liberal Arts Mathematics 1 starts with a review of problem-solving skills before moving on to a variety of key algebraic, geometric, and statistical concepts. Throughout the course, students hone their computational skills and extend their knowledge through problem solving and real-world applications.

    Course topics include problem solving; real numbers and operations; functions and graphing; systems of linear equations; polynomials and factoring; geometric concepts such as coordinate geometry and properties of geometric shapes; and descriptive statistics.

     

    Algebra I Online (H1352S1PV/H1352S2PV) Grade level 9–12. Two semesters
