    TYPICAL COURSE SEQUENCING IN MATHEMATICS:

    Note: STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

     
    Graduation Requirements:
     
    The State of Ohio currently requires four high school math credits and completion of Algebra 2.
     
    College Prep Recommendations:
     
    Students planning on attending college should complete mathematics through Precalculus.   Students who plan to attend competitive universities should also complete at least one AP course in math.
     
    STEM College Recommendations:
     
    Students interested in majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields should complete at least two of the following:  AP Calculus, AP Statistics, and AP Computer Science
     
    Advancing to the Next Course in Mathematics:
     
    A grade of an A or B is necessary to move forward in Honors courses.  Students with a grade of C in the previous course must secure teacher approval before enrolling in an Honors course.  Students earning a D or F in a prerequisite course may not enroll in Honors or AP courses.
     
    Technology in Math Courses:
     
    Technology is a natural fit for math courses and the 21st century.  Teachers are making increasing use of Internet based applications along with websites that are becoming interactive in nature.  Students are expected to have access to technology.  Hudson High School has many sources of technology available to students during the school day.  It is also expected that students have internet access outside of school. 
     
    All math courses require a graphing calculator (a TI-84 family calculator is what the teachers use).  Hudson High School has programs available to obtain a graphing calculator for those families who demonstrate financial need.  Please contact your teacher for assistance in this area.
     
    Honors and AP Courses:
     

    Honors and AP courses are recommended for highly motivated students who have demonstrated strong performance or interest in mathematics.  Students should expect the courses to be rigorous and challenging. 

    ASSISTANCE IN MATHEMATICS

    • The Math Lab (A113) opens at 7:30 AM and is open the entire school day.  It is also open during the Wednesday Morning block from 8:00 to 9:30 AM.   The lab is staffed with a math teacher who is prepared to offer assistance in Algebra 1 through Precalculus. 
    • The ARC room (A106) is also available for tutoring assistance on Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:30 PM.
    • Teachers are available during Explorer Period on Tuesdays to assist students with math.
