This yearlong course provides an opportunity for Math 1 students to build a strong foundation. The course will focus on developing student mastery of arithmetic and pre-algebra standards, supplementing and supporting the core curriculum while teaching study skills. This class is in addition to a student’s Math 1 course and is elective credit.
Math 1 is the first year course of our college prep sequence. The intent of the course is to develop skills and an understanding of the language of algebra, geometry, and statistics. The course focuses on linear and exponential functions, parallel and perpendicular lines, rigid transformation, elementary data analysis and problem solving.
Math 2 is the second year course for our college prep sequence. It continues the exploration of algebra concepts including rational exponents, absolute value, graphing and solving quadratic equations, square roots, the quadratic formula, and completing the square. Further, students explore Geometry concepts including logic and proof, right triangle trigonometry, circles, area, volume, and probability, quadratic functions, factoring, polynomial expressions and exponents
The Math 2A course is set up to meet the needs of students with demonstrated talent and interest in mathematics. Math 2A is an accelerated course with more difficult problems than Math 2. It is faster paced and incorporates supplemental topics with an emphasis on logic and proof. This is a very rigorous and challenging course.
Math 3 is the third year course for our college prep sequence. This course brings together and applies the mathematics learned in the previous two courses. Students explore transformations and polynomial, radical, exponential, logarithmic and rational functions.
The Math 3A course is set up to meet the needs of students with demonstrated talent and interest in mathematics. Math 3A is an accelerated course that is faster paced, incorporates supplemental topics and requires more problem solving and analysis than Math 3. This is a very rigorous and challenging course.
This is the fourth year of the college prep sequence. This course has one semester of trigonometry and one semester of Math Analysis. Topics covered include trigonometric functions, circular functions, trigonomic identities and equations, right and oblique triangles, graphing of sinusoids, vectors, functions, conic sections, exponents and logs, and an introduction to limits and difference quotients.
This honors course is more rigorous than Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus, covers concepts in more depth, offers more challenging problems, is faster paced, and presents additional Advanced Math topics in order to better prepare the student for calculus. This course carries an extra grade point.
Advanced Placement Statistics
This course is a college level class. Students will take the AP exam at the end of the course to possibly earn college credit, The topics covered are: Exploring Data, Sampling and Experimentation, Anticipating Patterns, and Statistical inference.
This year long course is designed to provide students with real world knowledge of many concepts found in the business and finance communities. Topics to be covered will include, but are not limited to, basic personal finance, interest rates surrounding both investments and loans, time value of money, taxes, renting vs. owning a home, costs of college, and starting a small business. Algebra concepts such as properties of real numbers, solving first degree equations, graphing linear equations, solving systems of equations, exponents and exponential equations, positive and negative numbers, inequalities, formulas, fractions, probability, and statistics will also be utilized.
Advanced Placement Calculus AB
This course is a college-level class covering most of the first two semesters of college calculus (Calculus AB). Achievement on the AP exam determines whether or not the student may gain college credit for calculus. Some of the topics covered are functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, max-min problems, related rates, integration, Riemann sums, solids of revolution, and applications.
