Middle School - Grades 6 through 8

The Sheboygan Area School District is in the process of changing its approach to mathematics at this level.  The intent behind this change is two-fold:  to increase the rigor in middle school mathematics so that all students will have the opportunity to be enrolled in Algebra as an 8th grader and to enhance each student's problem-solving abilities.  The three-year process will start in the 2007-08 school year. 

The courses offered are:
  • Grade 6 - Everyday Mathematics or Pre-Algebra (student selection based on test scores)
  • Grade 7 - Pre-Algebra or Algebra
  • Grade 8 - Algebra or Geometry*

*Middle school students who pass their 8th grade geometry class will be granted high school elective credit toward their high school graduation requirements.

High School - Grades 9 through 12
Two credits of high school mathematics are required for high school graduation.  To help students satisfy that requirement, nine different mathematics courses are taught at the high school level.  Those courses are:
  • Mathematics for Everyday Life
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Advanced Algebra
  • Functions, Statistics and Trigonometry
  • Transitions to College Mathematics
  • Pre-Calculus
  • AP Calculus
  • AP Statistics
