Breadcrumbs

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, based on EA placement test results and the student’s previous school transcripts, your counselor may assign a math course that will meet your needs and EA graduation requirements. Advanced Placement (AP) and Dual Enrollment/Concurrent Courses (CC) may include Math courses. Note: Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II are required for graduation.

Optional Math Courses

Algebra I

1 credit – typically taken in 9th grade (available in Honors)

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 online 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.

Topics explored:

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

Geometry

1 credit – typically taken in 10th grade (available in Honors)

Give your students valuable practice with linear, coordinate, and plane geometry with the Geometry course. In this full-year, high school math course, students gain experience with geometric calculations and coordinate plane graphing, methods of formal proof, and techniques of construction. The course is designed for students who have successfully completed Algebra I.

Pre-Calculus

1 credit – typically taken in 12th grade

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. Asa 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 EA 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 retention of complex information and provide learning tools to clarify complicated mathematical operations.

The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Pre-Calculus enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.

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
