Mathematics Hexagon

Mathematics Curriculum: 
Spark Academy will utilize Manchester Community College’s ALEKS mathematics program for Algebra and Geometry, both of which support the development of mathematics as determined by the New Hampshire Department of Education through correlation with the ACT College Readiness Standards. The ALEKS program aligns with Manchester Community College’s Math Department standards and provides the necessary prerequisite for their Early College math classes. The Early College math classes will be taught in CCSNH classrooms by CCSNH adjuncts or professors.


Level One: Integrated Math program
(also called Foundations for College Mathematics-Math 090 at MCC)
This program uses web-based technology for the self-paced ALEKS program and includes Algebra and Geometry. According to the MCC course description, “Students may take this course over multiple semesters until all the concepts have been mastered.”

This developmental program will be augmented through additional applied math lessons. These applied math lessons will illustrate algebraic and geometry concepts through projects and activities. Upon completion of this program, the Community College System of New Hampshire will allow the students to take dual credit math classes that will count toward both their high school and college graduation requirements.
