Course Offerings

Geometry

Prerequisite: Geometry 

Dates:

  • June 21 - July 30
  • Monday - Thursday
  • Office Hours: 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.*                            

Credits:

  • 3 Equivalent to the Madeira Geometry Course (Madeira Students)
  • 1 course credit Non - Madeira Student

Course Fee: $ 1,200.00

This class will include asynchronous activities and live office hours where students can ask questions and connect with their teacher multiple times per week. Student can expect to spend 10-12 hours per week on course content and will have approximately 5 hours to meet with their teacher during office hours. 

Students learn to identify angle relationships, scale, proportion, triangle congruence, and similarity, how perpendicular and parallel relationships unify and extend earlier concepts, and how to apply new knowledge to applications in circles, polygons, and right triangles. Students learn how to compute the area of plane figures and apply trigonometric skills to problem-solving in their work with a variety of 2-D shapes. Students will apply principles of algebra with continued practice and reinforcement while also demonstrating increasing flexibility with coordinate geometry, building a strong foundation for success in higher mathematics. 

*Office hours are currently scheduled for this time, but the times can be changed depending on the schedule of the group. 

 

Algebra II

Prerequisite: Geometry 

Date:

  • June 21 - July 30  
  • Monday - Thursday 
  • Office Hours: 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. * 

Credits:

  • 3 Equivalent to the Madeira Algebra ll Course (Madeira Students)
  • 1 course credit Non - Madeira Student

Course Fee: $1,200.00

This class will include asynchronous activities and live office hours where students can ask questions and connect with their teacher multiple times per week. Student can expect to spend 10-12 hours per week on course content and will have approximately 5 hours to meet with their teacher during office hours. 

This course extends the algebraic principles learned in Algebra I, including an exploration of different number systems such as radical and complex numbers. Students will study the algebraic and graphical properties of a wide variety of functions including quadratic, polynomial functions, radical, rational, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic. 

*Office hours are currently scheduled for this time, but the times can be changed depending on the schedule of the group. 

 

Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry

Prerequisite:  Algebra II or Advanced Algebra ll 

Dates:

  • June 21 - July 30
  • Monday - Friday 
  • Office Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.* 

Credits:

  • 3 Equivalent to the Madeira Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry Course (Madeira Students) 
  • 1 course credit Non - Madeira Student

Course Fee: $1,200.00

This class will include asynchronous activities and live office hours where students can ask questions and connect with their teacher multiple times per week. Student can expect to spend 10-12 hours per week on course content and will have approximately 5 hours to meet with their teacher during office hour. 

This course focuses on extending topics from Algebra II, including quadratic, polynomial, radical, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions. New units, such as conic sections, sequences and series, trigonometric functions and identities, limits, and the definition of the derivative will be introduced. This course is designed for students who will proceed to the concepts in Calculus. 

*Office hours are currently scheduled for this time, but the times can be changed depending on the schedule of the group.
