Mathematics at PHS
We have many mathematical classes available for students to take here at Poinciana High School.
Algebra 1: This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of algebra, including linear equations, inequalities, functions, and graphs. It is essential for students who plan to continue their studies in mathematics or science.
Algebra 2: This course builds on the concepts learned in Algebra 1 and introduces students to more advanced topics, such as quadratic equations, polynomials, and matrices. It is a prerequisite for many college-level math courses.
Geometry: This course studies the properties of geometric figures, such as triangles, circles, and spheres. It also introduces students to coordinate geometry and trigonometry.
Precalculus: This course prepares students for calculus by covering topics such as functions, limits, and trigonometry. It is a prerequisite for many college-level math courses.
Calculus: This course studies the rate of change of functions. It is divided into two parts: Calculus AB and Calculus BC. Calculus AB is a one-year course, while Calculus BC is a two-year course.
Statistics: This course studies the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data. It is a useful course for students who plan to study business, economics, or other fields that involve data analysis.
Math for College Algebra: This course is designed for students who need to strengthen their math skills before taking a college-level algebra course. It covers topics such as linear equations, inequalities, functions, and graphs.
Math for Financial Literacy: This course is designed to help students develop the mathematical skills they need to make informed financial decisions in their personal and professional lives. Topics covered include: Earning money and getting paid, managing a bank account, using credit cards, creating a budget, investing, insurance, and retirement planning.
