FAQ:  How do your math programs equate to High School Credits?

Our programs can be considered stand alone or as a supplement to another program.  Here’s the high school credit equivalency break-down:

1 Credit = 1 Typical School Year

Practical Math Foundation (Tiers 1 and 2):

  • .5 Credit of Algebra Ibigstock-Graduation-Day-3006147
  • .5 Credit of Geometry I
  • .5 Credit Trigonometry I (Pre-Calculus)

Tier 3:

  • .5 Credit of Algebra I
  • .5 Credit of Geometry II (Analytical Geometry)

Tier 4:

  • .5 Credit of Geometry I
  • .5 Credit of Geometry II (Analytical Geometry)
  • .5 Credit of Trigonometry I (Pre-Calculus)
  • 1 Credit of Algebra II

Tier 5:

  • 1 Credit of Calculus I

In summary…

If a student goes through Tier 5, they will have earned the equivalent of 6 Units in high school math as follows:

  • Algebra I – 1 Credit
  • Algebra II – 1 Credit
  • Geometry I – 1 Credit
  • Geometry II (Analytical Geometry) – 1 Credit
  • Trigonometry I (Pre-Calculus) – 1 Credit
  • Calculus I – 1 Credit

The student will also learn concepts not typically covered in a standard high school curriculum such as complex numbers in Tier 4.

In addition, Dr. Del introduces the student to Calculus in Tier 5 in a revolutionary way using Wolfram Alpha which makes both the learning and practice of Calculus much easier than the standard 20th Century approach.
