**Our Approach**

Your student may or may not see an obvious role for math in their future, depending on whether they want to become an author, an engineer, or anything else in between. Either way, you know that problem-solving is one skill that will serve them well in any future endeavor—to break down the questions in front of them and apply proven principles to find solutions that work—and you know math can help them hone that skill. You also know that teaching your student math on your own is much easier said than done. Our High School Math Program has you covered.

Students in live math courses meet four times per week with a highly-trained math mentor. These classes involve discussions, where students learn the history and real-life application of math concepts, and hands-on problem-solving, where students practice computational steps. In addition to practice in CK-12, math courses include classical math readings and “Writing About Math” assignments that add context and relevance to each topic. Students who understand math easily and want to accelerate their learning can choose to enroll in self-paced math courses, where they exclusively work in CK-12 and can visit the mentor in their office hours to get help as needed.

By completing these courses, students gain a practical sense of how the language of math applies to their everyday lives and prepare for success on the ACT and SAT. Most importantly, they train their brains to think clearly and logically about the challenges they encounter in math and life.

#### Preparatory Math Courses *(Eligible for high school elective credit, not high school math credit)*

#### Integrated High School Math Pathway *(Recommended)*

After years of guiding students along the traditional math pathway (Algebra 1 > Geometry > Algebra 2), we noticed that many of them would reach Algebra 2 with little retention of the algebra concepts they learned in their first year. For that reason, our flagship math program is now an integrated path (or track) in which students study algebra and geometry together for two years—High School Math 1 and High School Math 2—and are then fully primed for High School Math 3 (a.k.a. Algebra 2) and beyond.

#### Traditional High School Math Pathway

If your student has already started along the traditional math pathway and completed part of Algebra 1 or Geometry before coming to Williamsburg, we offer self-paced traditional math courses to smooth the transition to the integrated track and live math courses. Students can continue on the traditional math pathway via self-paced courses or use self-paced courses to transition to the integrated track. Please see the chart below to know which course your student should take to make this transition.
