Math 2018-19

3 Credits Required for Graduation

College bound students are considered qualified for college if they have taken and received satisfactory grades in the following math courses: Algebra 1 (ALG1), Geometry (GEOM) and Algebra 2 (ALG2). Higher-level institutions strongly prefer a math course beyond Algebra 2 (e.g., Pre-Calculus-PRECAL). Most colleges desire that a math course be taken during the senior year (e.g., Algebra 2 or Pre-Calculus). Failure to achieve satisfactory grades in these high school courses will likely require retaking the courses or refresher courses in these subject areas. For most four-year colleges or universities, acceptance will be denied without satisfactory grades in these subjects. Self-help aids, teacher help and student tutor assistance are available. Parents or students may initiate the request for such assistance.


Pre-Algebra - PRALG

1 credit - available to grades 9, 10

A required two-semester course for freshmen with below-average ability in mathematics.  The emphasis is on reviewing basic arithmetic while previewing algebra skills necessary for Algebra 1.

Prerequisite: None

Recommendation: For students in need of preparation for success in Algebra 1

Required: No


Algebra 1 - ALG1

1 credit - available to grades 9, 10, 11, 12

Course emphasis is on equation solving techniques with one or two variables.

Prerequisite: Pre-Algebra (in some cases)

Required: Yes

Note: If an 8th grade student strong in algebra wishes to bypass Algebra 1 and be scheduled directly into Geometry, he/she must achieve a satisfactory score on the Algebra 1 competency exam administered by the Math Department in late May or early June. Contact the Guidance Department for more information.


Technical Math - TMATH

1 credit - available to grades 10, 11, 12

This course provides the foundation needed for Geometry and reviews algebraic concepts with an emphasis on solving problems involving two and three-dimensional shapes.

Prerequisite: Algebra 1

Recommendation: Non-college, technical school bound student who found Algebra 1 and/or Geometry difficult 

Required: Yes, unless Geometry is taken


Geometry - GEOM

1 credit - available to grades 9, 10, 11, 12

Class emphasis is on a practical and theoretical approach to problem solving using reasoning and logical sequence, and deductive proof.

Prerequisite: Grade of C or better in Algebra 1 and/or teacher approval

Recommendation: College bound

Required: Yes, unless Technical Math is taken


Algebra 2 - ALG2

1 credit - available to grades 10, 11, 12

The emphasis of this class is a less rigorous approach to solving and graphing linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic equations with an introduction to sequences and series and probability.

Prerequisite: Algebra 1 and Geometry 

Recommendation: College bound students not planning to take Pre-Calculus

Required: No


Algebra 2 with Trigonometry - ALG2TR

1 credit - available to grades 10, 11, 12

The emphasis of this class is on solving and graphing linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic equations with beginning exposure to sequences and series, probability and trigonometry.

Prerequisite: Grade of C+ or better in Algebra 1 and Geometry

Recommendation: College bound students planning on taking Pre-Calculus

Required: No


Math Applications - MATHAP

1 credit - available to grades 11, 12

This course is intended to offer juniors and seniors an advanced class in mathematics that will prepare them for college freshman courses in statistics, pre-calculus, or more advanced algebra.  It may also serve to prepare students for Pre-Calculus as a senior at FVL.

Prerequisite: Grade of C- or better in Algebra 2

Recommendation: College bound students who may have difficulty in Pre-Calculus but still desire accelerated math credit for college preparation

Required: No


College Pre-Calculus - CPRCAL

1 credit - available to grades 11, 12

This is an advanced course with emphasis on trigonometry functions and pre-calculus mathematics.

Prerequisite: Grade of B+ or better in Algebra 2/Trig or teacher approval

Recommendation: College bound for science, engineering, math, and business careers

Required: No

Note: A grade of C or better must be maintained at the end of each semester in order to stay in Pre-Calculus. 

This class can be taken for college credit through UW Oshkosh. College credit is received through the CAPP program at UW Oshkosh. There is an additional fee for the college credits. Find the fee range here. Scroll down and look under the heading FVL College Credit Classes (Potential Fees).


College Calculus 1 - CCALC1

0.5 credit - available to grades 11, 12

This is a college level class with emphasis on differentiation and integration. This class is taught every other day for the first semester.

Prerequisite: grade of B+ or better in Pre-Calculus or teacher approval, highly interested and motivated math student

Recommendation: college bound for science, engineering, math and business careers

Required: No
