Middle and High School Math Courses

Note that Ensign Peak Academy Intermediate Math I and II include all concepts typically taught in a pre-algebra course, so students who complete Ensign Peak Academy Intermediate Math II are ready for Teaching Textbooks Algebra 1 or Ensign Peak Academy Secondary Math I.

Ensign Peak Academy Intermediate Math I (Live only): The goal of this course will also be to bridge the gap from concrete understanding to a more abstract and conceptual understanding of math. While we will be covering Statistics, Geometry, and Algebra, the courses are designed to be cohesive. The students will learn to apply their algebraic understanding to geometry and statistics. They will learn to be creative and to look for patterns. They will learn that running calculations are actually a very small part of math. They need to be able to interpret problems, create simplified models, and be able to justify and communicate their methods and results. This course will cover Scale Drawings, Proportional Relationships, Circles, Rational Number Arithmetic, Expressions, Equations, Angles, Triangles, and Probability and Sampling. (This courses uses Ensign Peak Academy curriculum.)
