    Ann Arbor high school students earn four mathematics credits required for graduation by completing a four-year mathematics sequence. The mathematics credits required for graduation are:
    • Algebra I
    • Geometry
    • Algebra II
    • Fourth-year Mathematics course during the senior year
    Course sequences that meet the graduation requirements are shown below including accelerated or advanced options (AC, AB, BC, and AP courses). These courses are guided by the Michigan K-12 Standards for Mathematics and prepare students to be College and Career Ready.  For additional information about course selection and possible mathematics course sequences, see the Ann Arbor Public School Student Services Guide

    The math classrooms in Ann Arbor Public Schools use a variety of Texas Instruments graphing calculators; most are TI-83s and TI-84s.  Students in Math 7 and above have access to a TI84 online graphing calculator which should be accessible on all types of devices.  The link for those calculators is here (be sure to be logged into your AAPS email on another tab).  For families interested in purchasing a calculator for home use, we would suggest a similar calculator, a TI-84.
