* Suggested course titles. Accelerated students will finish *Advanced Mathematics* in the first semester of eleventh grade and begin *Calculus* in the second semester. Pre-Calculus I consists of the first 70-90 lessons in *Advanced Mathematics.* Pre-Calculus II comprises the remaining lessons.

** Suggested course titles. The content in Geometry-Trigonometry-Algebra 3 is identical to that in Pre-Calculus I but is presented at a slower pace. Likewise, Geometry-Trigonometry-Algebra 4 is the same as Pre-Calculus II. Using these course titles allows accelerated students who are not successful in *Advanced Mathematics* during the tenth grade to try again and still receive credit. Students who complete *Advanced Mathematics* will have taken the equivalent of two semesters of geometry, one semester of trigonometry, and one semester of advanced algebra. (“Geometry” in the course title ensures credit for geometry.)

*** These students may find the material in *Advanced Mathematics* difficult. Consider placing them in a less rigorous mathematics course.

**Notes:**

*Math 8/7*covers a broad spectrum of topics that are required by the mathematical standards of many states. Considerable pre-algebra content is included, and students who complete the text successfully (80% or higher test scores) will be prepared to take*Algebra 1*as their next mathematics course.*Algebra 1/2*focuses on developing skills that prepare students for algebra. The pre-algebra content is more extensive than the pre-algebra content of*Math 8/7;*however, the scope is narrower.
