American International School of Lome

Advanced Algebra

Offered,
2015-2016,

Advanced Algebra is based on the American Secondary Mathematics Standards recommended by the NCTM. This course allows students to build on knowledge and skills from Algebra 1 and Geometry. Students will extend their knowledge to quadratic functions and relations, logarithms and exponential functions, and sequences and series. Students will represent quantities in symbolic, numeric, and graphic forms, with special attention to graphical representation. Emphasis will be placed on real world applications.

Algebra 1

Offered,
2015-2016,

Algebra 1 is a two-semester course based on the American Secondary mathematics standards recommended by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). This course allows students to integrate prior learning with newly introduced algebraic concepts and apply their learning to real-life problems. Emphasis will be placed on the development of critical thinking skills using various problem-solving techniques. Topics presented in this course include simplifying and writing algebraic expressions, graphing linear, quadratic, square root and rational functions, solving and graphing equations and inequalities, and solving systems of linear equations.

Geometry

Offered Summer,
2016-2017,

Geometry is a two-semester course based on the American Secondary mathematics standards recommended by the NCTM. This two-semester course allows students to build on knowledge and skills from Algebra 1. One area of focus in this class will be the development of thinking skills, of the ability to analyze reason, interpret and apply concepts, spatial perception and synthesis. These skills will be promoted through the use of formal proofs using previously learned algebraic properties, and eventually adding geometric definitions, postulates and theorems. Success in this class will enhance the student's ability to perform on standardized tests as well as take on the challenges facing them in more advanced mathematical courses.

Calculus

Not Offered,
2015-2016,

At the American International school of Lomé, Calculus is divided into two sequential courses described bellowed. Only students who earn a C grade or better in Pre-Calculus or perform well on the pre-assessment are permitted to take calculus 1. These courses are intended for students who wish to study computer science, engineering, mathematics, and natural sciences in college or university. Calculus 1 is the first sequence of the two courses combining the subject matter of analytic geometry and calculus. Functions and their graphs are studied with special attention to differentiation, limits, rules and integration using various techniques. Applications of both differentiation (and differential calculus) are covered. Calculus 2 is a study of the calculus of inverse functions, techniques of integration, indeterminate forms, applications of integration, differential equations, parametric equations, polar coordinates, conic sections, and infinite sequences and series.

Business Math

Offered,
2015-2016,

Provides comprehension coverage of personal and business-related mathematics. Students review the basic operations of arithmetic, learn to manage their personal finances, as well as grasp the fundamentals of business finances.
