The CTK Math Department prepares students to understand math models that will help them think critically in and out of the classroom. The curriculum focuses on algebra and geometry, as these are the fundamental prerequisites for advanced mathematics studies. The department faculty strives to assist every student to become fluent in the language of algebra and geometry, develop confidence in performing these equations, and achieve a lasting understanding of fundamental math concepts.
Courses offered by the Math Department at CTK
Math IV: Pre-calculus This course will explore, in depth, the topics of radicals and rational exponents, polynomial and rational functions, logarithmic and exponential functions, graphs and trigonometry. Students will discover how their algebraic foundation supports much of what they encounter in Pre-calculus. Students will also be able to apply mathematical concepts and formulas (i.e. population growth, compound interest) to real-life applications.
Math V: AP StatisticsThe AP Statistics course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes evident in the content, skills, and assessment in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, probability and simulation, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding.
