Mathematics

The Mathematics Department takes very seriously the idea that Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy are “college prep.” We offer a strong, fundamental program in mathematics. It is our goal to lay a strong foundation in each course for the next course which the students will take. Since our students take four years of math, this is critical. Students are placed in one of four “tracks” depending on their math scores on the placement exam, Iowa test scores, grade school achievement level and teacher recommendation. Besides the normal sequence of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus math, we offer the advanced student an opportunity to enter the accelerated tracks with the top track ending in AP Statistics. Students may take more than one math class in a year, but MUST take a math class every year. Students who successfully complete courses in the accelerated math curriculum will be able to earn college credit for some courses through Gannon University and/or the AP testing program.

REQUIREMENTS: 4 credits of Math

GANNON UNIVERSITY ARTICULATION AGREEMENT: Upon matriculation at Gannon University, students can earn 3 credits (MATH 111 or MATH 140) when they earn a B (85%) or better in the following classes: Algebra 1 H, Algebra 2/Trigonometry H or Advanced College Algebra/Trigonometry, Geometry H or Advanced Geometry and Calculus H or AP.
