Mathematic Course Curriculum

Mathematic Course Curriculum


This elective credit coarse is designed only for students who haven’t shown proficiency at the essential level of the Florida Math Standards. Topics include: ratio and proportion, percents, measurements, integers, exponents, linear equations in one variable, graphing, absolute value, and basic geometry concepts. Students successfully completing this course with a “C” or higher should be prepared to take Algebra I. This course DOES NOT cover material essential to meeting or exceeding the Florida Math Standards at the proficiency level and REQUIRES teacher recommendation for enrollment.


This elective credit course provides the student with a review of the fundamental computational operations. At the same time, students will work with applications of mathematics in everyday life. Topics to be studied include: personal finance, housing, transportation, taxes, insurance, investments, purchasing and budgeting. Calculators will be used extensively.
