# Mathematics Curriculum at Sterling Academy

Accredited Virtual High School Math Curriculum. Students who study math online at Sterling Academy can utilize as much or as little as support as they need in a friendly, encouraging environment.  Many tools are provided to tailor learning to the individual student to make each learning experience customized and individualized.  Open communication with quick response time and continuous feedback keeps students on top of their learning with clear knowledge of their progress.  Having self-directed math courses allows students to take ownership of their education while they develop pride and confidence.  Students are able and encouraged to connect with their peers for academic support and socialization.

Here is a short demonstration video from our Algebra 1 course.

## SAMPLE Math Course Descriptions

Algebra I

This course provides an in depth coverage of  writing, solving, and graphing a variety of equations and inequalities, linear systems, functions, properties of real numbers, and numeric and algebraic expressions, including laws of exponents, radicals and rational expressions.

Lab activities allow students to explore algebraic principles.  For example, in the lesson on Solving Equations, students interactively solve equations using the distributive property and then graph them.

Geometry

This course consists of reasoning, proofs, basic constructions, triangle relationships, quadrilaterals, and the concepts of surface area, volume, circles, and transformations.

Complementary labs strengthen the lessons in this course.  For example, in the lesson on Properties of Triangles, students interactively classify triangles based on their sides and angles.

Algebra II

Students master advanced algebraic concepts, including trigonometry, statistical analysis, permutations, and sequences and series.

Students build on their learning through lab exercises.  For example, in the section on Operations with Functions, students are able to create and graph functions interactively.

Pre-Calculus

Students discover the relationship between advanced algebraic topics and trigonometry, including the nature of graphs, nonlinear systems, polynomial and rational functions, logarithms, trigonometric graphs and identities, vectors, parametric equations, and sequences and series.  The end of the course provides students with an introduction to calculus through the exploration of limits, continuity, derivatives, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

Through lab activities, students interactively explore the topics in this course.  For example, in the Trigonometry Functions lesson, students reshape and resize a right triangle to examine how the sine and cosine of angles change accordingly.
