  • Math Courses Offered at McMillen

  • Algebra I - Prerequisite: Eighth grade mathematics

    This course includes the study of algebraic thinking and symbolic reasoning, linear and quadratic function concepts, relationships between equations and functions, and tools for algebraic representation.

  • Algebra I - Honors/PreAP Prerequisite: Teacher approval, mastery of eighth grade mathematics TEKS

    The primary focal points include the study of algebraic thinking and symbolic reasoning, linear and quadratic function concepts, relationships between equations and functions, and tools for algebraic representation. Students use a variety of representations (concrete, pictorial,numerical, symbolic, graphical and verbal), tools, and technology to model mathematical situations to solve meaningful problems.

  • Geometry - Prerequisite: Algebra I

    This course includes the study of geometric thinking and symbolic reasoning; figures and their properties; the relationship between geometry, other mathematics and other disciplines; and the tools for geometric representation.

  • Geometry – Honors/PreAP Prerequisite: Algebra I Honors/PreAP

    This course includes a more challenging and rigorous study of geometric thinking and symbolic reasoning; figures and their properties; the relationship between geometry, other mathematics and other disciplines; and the tools for geometric representation. Additional topics in this course include advanced study in space geometry.

  • Algebra II - Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry (or concurrently enrolled in Geometry)

    This course includes the study of algebraic thinking and symbolic reasoning, quadratic, square root, rational, exponential, and logarithmic function concepts, relationships between algebra and geometry; and tools for algebraic representation.

  • Algebra II - Honors/PreAP - Prerequisite: Algebra I Honors/PreAP, Geometry Honors/PreAP

    This course includes a more challenging and rigorous study of algebraic thinking and symbolic reasoning, quadratic, square root, rational, exponential, and logarithmic function concepts, relationships between algebra and geometry; and tools for algebraic representation. Additional topics in this course include series, sequences, and probability.

  • Pre-Calculus - Honors/PreAP - Prerequisite: Algebra II or Algebra II Honors/PreAP and Geometry or Geometry Honors/PreAP

    This course includes a more challenging and rigorous study of polynomial, rational, power (including radical), exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, and piecewise-defined functions; conic sections, their properties, and parametric representations; sequences and series; and vectors to model physical situations. Additional topics in this course lead to AP Calculus.
