Course Offerings

 

Students planning to enroll in a college or university upon graduation are required to earn four units (years) of college preparatory mathematics. Incoming freshmen at Savannah Arts Academy are required to take four years of mathematics while attending high school to better prepare them for college. Since high school mathematics credits can be earned in middle school, some students will graduate with more than four units of mathematics. All course syllabi are available on our school website. The current course sequence is as follows:

  • Algebra l
  • Geometry
  • Algebra ll
  • Precalculus
  • Accelerated Algebra l/Geometry A
  • Accelerated Geometry/Algebra ll
  • Accelerated Precalculus
  • AP Calculus AB
  • AP Calculus BC
  • AP Computer Science
  • AP Statistics
  • Advanced Mathematical Decision Making
  • Financial Literacy

Class size

 

Class size in the mathematics department ranges from 10 to 24 students. A typical class size is 20.

 

Additional Assistance

 

All mathematics teachers offer at least one after school tutorial session per week to provide their students with additional assistance in their math course work. Review for the PSAT/SAT/ACT is also offered during class, in computer labs, after school, and on Saturdays. School resource specialists work in math classes to assist students with specific learning needs.

 

Extracurricular Activities

 

The Savannah Arts Academy Math Team offers students a chance to compete academically with other high school students locally and statewide. This year’s team will compete at Georgia Southern University, Armstrong State University, and College of Charleston in mathematics tournaments.

 

Mu Alpha Theta is a National Mathematics Honor Society for 2 year College and High School students.  The purpose of Mu Alpha Theta is to stimulate interest in mathematics by providing public recognition of superior mathematical scholarship and by promoting various mathematical activities.  Students are selected by their math teachers for entry.

 

Testing

 

Currently, the State of Georgia requires high school students to take End of Course Testing (EOCT) in Geometry and Algebra 1.

 

Supplies

 

The following supplies are required in all math classes at Savannah Arts Academy:

  • Pencils
  • Graph paper
  • Colored pencils (with at least two different colors)
  • Graphing calculator (Ownership of a graphing calculator is highly encouraged and these tools are used in all classes.  Any brand will work, but the TI Nspire CX or the TI Nspire CX CAS are cutting edge and will be useful all the way through College level math.  These calculators can be used on the Georgia Milestones Exam as well as for the SAT and all AP Math tests.  The TI 83 and TI 84 are also commonly used here and can be used on most standardized tests.)

Calculators for Math Classes:

The standard graphing calculator for use at Savannah Arts Academy is the TI Nspire CX for students who are not going be taking AP Calculus in high school and the TI Nspire CX CAS for the students who are going to be taking Calculus in high school. Your students can use any graphing calculator, but several teachers have class sets of the TI Nspire CX. These are tools that the students need to be familiar with so it would greatly benefit them to own one. They will be useful through high school , college and beyond.
