# Math

Our high school math program is offered to all students in grades 9-12. The classes offered are traditional, but include some projects for students to demonstrate new methods of learning. The courses offered are those of traditional school: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Financial Literacy, and Statistics. Students may also enroll in dual credit courses at CNM or UNM. CNM requires students take the Accuplacer to be placed in the appropriate math course. High school students need four credits of Mathematics in order to graduate. We look forward to you taking courses in our mathematics program at Tierra Adentro of New Mexico!
