The content of the 2007 Mississippi Framework is centered on the
five content strands of number and operations, algebra, geometry,
measurement, and data analysis & probability. The five process
standards (problem solving, communication, reasoning, and proof,
connections, and representations) permeate all instructional
practices. The five interrelated content strands along with the
five process strands combine to provide continuity to the teaching
of K12 mathematics and assure that appropriate processes are used
and important concepts are learned throughout each grade level and
secondary course.

Advanced algebra requires skills developed in earlier courses to
investigate advance topics such as conic sections higher
polynomials, matrices, functions, and probability.
Credit Unit:
1/2
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, and Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II
Length of Class:
1 semester
Honors PreCalculus
Description:
PreCalculus covers those skills and objectives necessary for
success in calculus. Topics of study include sequences and series,
functions, and higher order polynomials. These topics are addressed
from a numeric, graphical, and analytical perspective.
Credit Unit:
1/2 credit
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, ALgebra I., Geometry, Algebra II.
Length of Class:
1 semester
Honors Trigonometry
Description:
An extension of Trigonometry. A study of trigonometric functions
with emphasis on applications. The course extends algebraic
concepts to the exploration of circular and triangular functions
with properties and graphs.
Credit Unit:
1/2 credit
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, Algebra I., Geometry, Algebra II.
Length of Class:
1 semester
Trigonometry
Description:
Trigonometry is a comprehensive study of trigonometric functions
with emphasis on applications. This course extends algebraic
concepts to the exploration of circular and triangular functions
with their properties and graphs. This course is recommended for
college bound students.
Credit Unit:
1/2
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, and Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II
Length of Class:
1 semester
Honors Algebra II
Description:
Honors Algebra II is an extension of Algebra II. All competencies
listed under Algebra II are discussed in greater detail with a
stronger emphasis placed on application. Additional topics covered
include matrices and an introduction to trigonometry. A
comprehensive test is administered to ninth grade Geometry
students. The results of this test, in addition to teacher
recommendations, previous scores in math and standardized test
scores in mathematics, determine selection of students for Honors
Algebra II.
Credit Unit:
1
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, and Algebra I, Geometry
Length of Class:
2 semesters
Algebra II
Description:
Serves as an extension of Algebra I with a variety of topics
explored in greater depth. It will continue to provide
opportunities for students to become mathematical problem solvers,
to gain confidence in their ability to
use mathematics, to learn to communicate and reason
mathematically, to generalize when appropriate, and to make
mathematical connections.
Credit Unit:
1
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, and Algebra I, and Geometry
Length of Class:
2 semesters
Survey of Mathematical Topics
Description:
Designed to provide students with the skills necessary in making
wise financial decisions. The basic concepts of algebra will be
reviewed and extended as students solve reallife problems that
affect them and their families. This course will provide skills in
probability and statistics, logic, linear programming, and
regression analysis.
Credit Unit:
1
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra, and Algebra I
Length of Class:
2 semesters
Geometry
Description:
Geometry is the study of two and threedimensional figures. This
course will provide the opportunity for students to develop spatial
sense and reasoning skills. Students will use the language of
geometry to communicate an
understanding of properties and characteristics that encompass
geometry.
Credit Unit:
1
Prerequisite:
PreAlgebra and Algebra I
Length of Class:
2 semesters
Algebra I
Description:
Provides opportunities to develop and communicate an understanding
of algebraic representation. Concepts covered include real numbers
and their properties, functions, algebraic expressions, linear
equations and inequalities,
analysis and probability.
Credit Unit:
1
Prerequisite:
76 or better in PreAlgebra or Transition to Algebra.
Length of Class:
2 semesters
Transition to Algebra
Description:
A course intended to be a bridge between the concrete concepts of
PreAlgebra and the abstract concepts of Algebra I and Geometry.
This course will build a stronger foundation of basic skills. It is
designed for those students who have completed PreAlgebra but
haven't yet mastered the skills needed for success in Algebra
I.
