Mathematics Placement for Rising 9th Grade Students
Math placement will be determined by class grades, parent, student, and teacher input, and standardized test scores. Counselors will have placement recommendations at the individual student registration appointment.
Math Courses
Algebra I A (must be paired with Algebra 1B in the same school year)
Grade Level: 9 Credit: 1
Prerequisite: None
In this course, students build on their basic understanding of math to explore symbolic relationships in a variety of ways. Students use integers and fractions to represent relationships in graphs and functions. Algebra 1 uses problem situations, physical models, and appropriate technology to extend algebraic thinking and engage student reasoning. The concepts emphasized in the course include functions; solving equations, slope as rates of change, proportionality, quadratic equations, exponential growth and decay, rational expressions, and probability in data exploration. Algebra IA earns one elective credit and is not applied as one of the four math credits for graduation. The Algebra I requirement is met upon successful completion of Algebra IB. Algebra IA and Algebra IB must be taken in the same school year.
Algebra I B (must be paired with Algebra 1A in the same school year)
Grade Level: 9 Credit: 1
Prerequisite: Algebra IA
In this course, students build on their basic understanding of math to explore symbolic relationships in a variety of ways. Students use integers and fractions to represent relationships in graphs and functions. Algebra I uses problem situations, physical models, and appropriate technology to extend algebraic thinking and engage student reasoning. The concepts emphasized in the course include functions; solving equations, slope as rates of change, proportionality, quadratic equations, exponential growth and decay, rational expressions, and probability in data exploration. The Algebra 1 requirement is met upon successful completion of Algebra 1B. Algebra 1A and Algebra 1B must be taken in the same school year. The score on the Algebra 1B TN Ready exam will count as a percentage of the final grade.
Algebra I Advanced
Grade Level: 9 Credits: 1
Prerequisite: Placement is determined by test scores in 8th grade.
In this course, students build on their basic understanding of math to explore symbolic relationships in a variety of ways. Students use integers and fractions to represent relationships in graphs and functions. Algebra I uses problem situations, physical models, and appropriate technology to extend algebraic thinking and engage student reasoning. The concepts emphasized in the course include functions; solving equations, slope as rates of change, proportionality, quadratic equations, exponential growth and decay, rational expressions, and probability in data exploration. This course is different than Algebra IA/IB because it is taught in only one semester. Therefore the class is a faster paced class. The score on the Algebra I TN Ready exam will count as a percentage of the final grade.
Geometry
Grade Level: 910 Credit:1
Prerequisite: Algebra I or Algebra IB
This course is for collegebound students who plan to pursue a math curriculum. Subject matter in this advanced math course includes topics from analytic geometry and differential and integral calculus with applications. The score on the Geometry TN Ready exam will count as percentage of the final grade.
Algebra II
Grade Level:1011 Credit: 1
Prerequisite: Geometry
Algebra II is an in depth study of linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, rational, and trigonometric functions and inequalities. Other topics of study include factoring, powers and roots, matrices, sequences and series, and probability and statistics. The score on the Algebra II TN Ready exam will count as percentage of the final grade.
Trigonometry (paired with PreCalculus in the same school year)
Grade Level:1112 Credit:1
Prerequisite: Algebra II
This course is for collegebound students. The study includes such topics as the wrapping function, circular functions, inverse functions, identities, and complex numbers
PreCalculus (paired with Trigonometry in the same school year)
Grade Level:1112 Credit:1
Prerequisite: Trigonometry
This course bridges the mathematical gap between Algebra and Calculus. The course includes topics common to college algebra, such as functions and their graphs, parametric equations, limits, linear algebra and conics. Depending on continuation by the State of Tennessee, a Dual Credit Exam will be given at the end of the course.
Probablity & Statistics Jumpstart (Northeast State Jumpstart Program MATH 1530) (Taught at Boone/Paired with Public Speaking SPCH 2300)
Grade Level:1112 Credit:1
Prerequisite: Algebra II and Minimum ACT math subscore of at least a 19. A fee is associated with this course.
Probability and Statistics (NonCalculus based) is designed to emphasize statistics as a decisionmaking tool and to introduce basic concepts of the discipline. This course includes: descriptive statistics; an introduction to probability; probability distributions; linear correlation and regression; and statistical inference and hypothesis testing. Lab will emphasize the uses of computer software and calculators for statistical analysis. With successful completion of this course, students will earn 3 credit hours from Northeast State. This course is an approved course for the Tennessee Board of Regents and Northeast State's General Education Core and is designed for transfer.
Probablity & Statistics (Northeast State Dual Enrollment Program MATH 1530) (Taught at NES Gray Campus)

Bridge Math
Grade Level: 12 Credit: 1
Prerequisite: Algebra II and ACT Math subscore below 19
In alignment with the Developmental Studies Program for Mathematics (DSPM) outcomes, the curriculum standards have been organized into groups of mathematical skills. Certain mathematical skills are required in order to prepare a DSPM student for college level mathematics courses. However, these particular skills should be developed in an environment that promotes learning beyond skill and drill techniques. Online computer access outside of class is recommended, but not required, to successfully complete this class. (See Bridge Math Fact Sheet at end of math section)
A.P. Calculus (Advanced Placement)Grade Level:12 Credit:1
Prerequisite: PreCalculus
This course is for collegebound students who plan to pursue a math curriculum. Subject matter in this advanced math course includes topics from analytic geometry and differential and integral calculus with applications. Students who successfully complete the course and exam may receive credit, advanced placement, or both for one semester of college calculus.
Daniel Boone High SchoolNortheast State
Bridge Math
Through Northeast State Community College and the SAILS program.
Each student that is added or dropped must go through Northeast State supervisors and processed through their computer system.
The cutoff date to add is about 1 week, 23 weeks to drop a student from the start of school. Each student added costs money, so we must submit a number of participants about a month or two before the semester starts. For students with less than 19 on ACT and have taken Alg. II. (Some students may be taking Alg. II at the same time).
Counts as fourth high school math credit.
Each Module completed meets the math support classes required by colleges in Tennessee (each student will be put on the list of completion through SAILS and all the modules they complete, should be part of their high school transcript) It is the same program that Northeast State provides their students for math support and they are in charge of the internet access through Pearson. If they do not take the class in the Bridge class in high school through the SAILS program, they will be charged $150 a module (@$900 with book) at Northeast State. (They must take if they do not have a 19 on the ACT or pass the entrance exam at the individual state college)
Everything is completed online. Lessons and quizzes can be done anywhere. Tests must be taken in class with the math teacher.
Lessons and notes must be written out and checked on a scheduled agenda sheet. Progress (finishing on time) is about 10% of their grade.
Each lesson takes about a class period to do so it can be done completely in class.
Students that get behind must have internet access and a computer or laptop outside of class. Library is available until 4:00.
If the student completes all S modules in the fall. They may take Dual Enrollment Prob & Stats second semester.
Math 1100 (very limited, it really on counts as a prerequisite class for physics and chemistry at Northeast State) can also be taken if the student completes the S modules early and have time to finish it.
