High School Curriculum

Math Courses

Enlightium Academy uses a curriculum that fosters a rich learning environment and employs the latest multimedia techniques including graphics, games, and other activities.

Math courses typically follow the pattern below. However, in some cases, your counselor may assign a math course that will meet your needs and Enlightium graduation requirements. 

Algebra I

1 credit – available as an Honor course
Typically taken in Grade 9

Help students explore basic algebraic concepts with this full-year, high school math course. Throughout the year, students explore concepts that include evaluating, creating, solving, and graphing linear, quadratic, and polynomial functions.

More rigorous than Algebra I Fundamentals, this course requires students to gain a deeper knowledge and apply their understanding of algebraic concepts to problem-solving. It is intended for students who have successfully mastered the core algebraic concepts covered in Pre-Algebra.

This course has no projects.

Topics explored:

  • Foundations of Algebra
  • Linear Equations
  • Functions
  • Inequalities
  • Linear Systems
  • Polynomials
  • Exponential & Radical Functions
  • Quadratics
  • Rational Expressions
  • Probability & Statistics

Geometry

1 credit – available as an Honor course
Typically taken in Grade 10
Prerequisite: Algebra I

Give your students valuable practice with linear, coordinate, and plane geometry with the Geometry course. In this high school math course, students gain experience with geometric calculations and coordinate plane graphing, methods of formal proof, and techniques of construction.

Topics explored:

  • Logic
  • Angles & Parallels
  • Congruent Triangles & Quadrilaterals
  • Similar Polygons
  • Circles
  • Area & Volume
  • Coordinate Geometry
  • Transformations

Algebra II

1 credit – available as an Honor course
Typically taken in Grade 11
Prerequisite: Algebra I

Designed for students who have successfully completed Algebra I, this math course integrates geometric concepts and skills to introduce students to basic trigonometric identities and problem-solving skills. Throughout the course, students develop an understanding of advanced number theory, probability, and concepts involving linear, quadratic, and polynomial functions.

This course has no projects.

Topics explored:

  • Set, Structure, & Function
  • Numbers, Sentences, & Problems
  • Linear Equations & Inequalities
  • Polynomials
  • Algebraic Fractions
  • Quadratic Relations & Systems
  • Exponential Functions
  • Counting Principles
  • Trigonometry
  • Statistics

Pre-Calculus

1 credit
Typically taken in Grade 12

Pre-Calculus prepares students for calculus and college-level math with interactive lessons and advanced problem-solving. Students will explore the purpose of calculus and mathematical analysis while they expand their algebraic knowledge through the realm of trigonometry. As a part of a complete learning management system, pre-calculus is a self-directed course infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers. Like all Enlightium courses, Bible verses (KJV) and biblical references support the development of a Christian worldview and encourage practical Christian living.

With a clear, step-by-step delivery, this course covers a wide range of mathematical concepts including an in-depth observation of math functions, quadratic inequalities, logarithms, probabilities, and permutation. Lessons are interactive to encourage the retention of complex information and provide learning tools to clarify complicated mathematical operations.

Topics explored:

  • Relations & Functions
  • Special Functions
  • Trigonometric Functions
  • Circular Functions & Graphs
  • Identities & Functions of Multiple Angles
  • Application of Trigonometric Functions
  • Inverse Trigonometric Functions & Polar Coordinates
  • Quadratic Equations
  • Probability
  • Calculus Basics

Enlightium Academy is a private Christian school serving homeschool, online, and co-op students on their journey to embrace their God-given talents and develop a lifelong thirst for knowledge with a Christ-like spirit.
