Students are required to take three years of high school mathematics to meet graduation requirements for Minneapolis Public Schools. Mathematics courses are designed to strengthen problem solving skills and prepare students for the future.We believe all students deserve to learn important and challenging mathematics, thus becoming competent and confident problem solvers!

Please feel free to look at the student work posted on the right side bar. It will help to give you an idea of work you will be doing and tools we use. 

Below is a list of our current online math courses: 

Advanced Algebra

Satisfactory completion of this course meets the state 9-12 mathematics standards and credit requirements for Algebra II.

This course challenges students to solve problems using advanced algebraic techniques. The goal of this course is to support students’ ability to

  • Recognize, describe and generalize patterns to make predictions
  • Use algebraic symbols and operations to represent and analyze mathematical structures and relationships
  • Analyze the relationships and interactions between quantities to model and compare patterns of change for complex functions
  • Use principles of probability to evaluate situations where risk is involved.
