MATHEMATICS

Welcome to mathematics at Orem High. We have compiled the information that students, parents, and educators will need to understand our curriculum and placement within our program. The primary purpose of this document is to help ensure correct placement for student achievement. Attached is a flowchart built to help guide a student from one course to another.

Each box represents a course to mathematics. Follow the arrows exiting each box that correspond to the performance level (grade) of the student to see which course we suggest taking next. Note that pre-algebra is not a course available; we have included it to help project transitions from a junior high or middle school.

        

We have included suggestions on which direction to go when registering for classes based on the grade earned in the previous course. While our recommendations are not hard rules for enrollment, built to help a student find success and enroll in a class that would be able to build on their understanding of prerequisites for the class. We would like to see a student prove their preparation with a “C” or higher before moving forward to the next course.

Each of our math teachers is prepared to speak with their students about the current math course and help to project which class would be best suited for future studies.

For graduation, students need to have credit for three math courses. Two of the courses must be core math courses (Secondary Math 1, Secondary Math 2, Secondary Math 3, Pre-calculus, Calculus, and Statistics) and the third may be a core or non-core course.

We appreciate your consideration while enrolling here at OHS and we are eager to help you plan for success in mathematics.
