Mathematics
The scope and sequence for CTC math classes are as follows:
CTC recommends that each student progress as far as abilities allow in the Algebra curriculum. Geometry is recommended after Algebra 1. Consult one of the Math teachers if you have a question about which class your student should take. There are math placement tests to help you make the best decision.

This class is offered as a two-day a week class and is the bridge between general math concepts to Algebra. The concepts covered include; measurements, metric system, algebra, scientific notation, graphs and statistics, and an intro to trigonometry. Due to the amount of work necessary to complete the entire course in the academic year, students are expected to complete daily assigned work. This is also necessary so that new concepts are practiced daily mastery. Supply fee includes worktext, tests, and quizzes.
 
ALGEBRA 1
Tutor:                     Bonnie Patocka                          Email: [email protected]
Grades:                  9-12                                            Class Limit: 5-10
Time:                      Tuesdays/Thursdays 9:55AM-11:15AM
Textbook:              Abeka Algebra 1 (2nd edition)
Prerequisite:          A foundation in arithmetic, especially fractions and decimals. TI-84 calculator advised, but not required.
Supply Fees:         $10.00
Total Class Fees:  $774.000 – 9 Monthly Payments of $86.00 as follows:
                                Tutor:                        $50.00/month payable to tutor
                                Operational Fee:         $36.00/month payable to CTC
Algebra is the backbone of high school mathematics.  This course will utilize a traditional approach with tests given after every chapter. Because the class only meets for 30 weeks, students will be expected to work 5-6 hours each week on homework.  The TI-84 calculator is strongly advised (not included in supply fee).
 
ALGEBRA 2
Tutor:                     Bonnie Patocka                          Email: [email protected]
Grades:                  10-12                                          Class Limit: 5-10
Time:                      Tuesdays/Thursdays 1:30PM-2:50PM
Textbook:              Abeka Algebra 2
Prerequisite:          Algebra 1, Geometry recommended.  TI-84 calculator advised, but not                 required.
Supply Fees:         $10.00
Total Class Fees:  $774.00 – 9 Monthly Payments of $86.00 as follows:
                                Tutor:                        $50.00/month payable to tutor
                                Operational Fee:         $36.00/month payable to CTC
Algebra 2 builds on the skills of Algebra 1, with an introduction to trigonometry.  This course will utilize a traditional approach with tests given after every chapter. Because the class only meets for 30 weeks, students will be expected to work 5-6 hours each week on homework.  The TI-84 calculator is advised (not included in supply fee).

JUNIOR HIGH MATH
Tutor:                     Pamela Searcy                           Email: [email protected]
Grades:                  5-7                                              Class Limit: 5-15
Time:                      Tuesday & Thursday 8:30-9:50AM
Textbook:              Abeka Arithmetic 6 & Abeka Basic Mathematics
Prerequisite:          Placement test available
Supply Fees:         $50
Total Class Fees:  $774.000 – 9 Monthly Payments of $86.00 as follows:  
                                Tutor:                        $50.00/month payable to tutor
                                Operational Fee:         $36.00/month payable to CTC
The purpose of this class is to prepare students for higher level math such as Algebra and Trigonometry. It is designed to not only build upon concepts students already know, but to reinforce learning of the concepts through the 6th and 7th grade levels. The year will start with placement testing to identify each child’s skill level. Some of the concepts covered in this course are; whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percent’s, factoring, graphing, geometry and introduction to algebra. Due to the amount of work necessary to complete the entire course in the academic year, students are expected to complete daily assigned work. This is also necessary so that new concepts are practices daily ensuring mastery. This class is offered as a two day a week class and designed to utilize two years to fully master the concepts. Supply fee includes worktext, tests, and quizzes.
 
 GEOMETRY
Tutor:                     Bonnie Patocka                          Email: [email protected]
Grades:                  9-12                                            Class Limit: 5-10
Time:                      Tuesdays/Thursdays 12:05PM-1:25PM
Textbook:              Abeka Plane Geometry
Prerequisite:          Algebra 1. TI-84 calculator advised, but not required.
