Math


Algebra I

27.06217 | 9th grade | full year | 1 credit

This is the first course in a sequence which leads to the study of higher mathematics. Topics include rational numbers, equations, inequalities, polynomials, factoring, graphing, systems of equations, rational expressions, radicals, relations, and functions.

Euclidean Geometry

27.09727 | 9th grade | full year | 1 credit

Students make conjectures and investigate properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, and solids. Conjectures are verified through deductive reasoning. Study includes a unit on formal logic. Vectors, symmetry, transformations, algebra, logic, calculators, and computers are used as tools to solve problems. Students should be able to successfully work independently as well as cooperatively and should have strong algebra skills. (Prerequisite: Algebra I)

Euclidean Geometry Honors

27.09767 | 10th grade | full year | 1 credit

This course is designed to develop critical thinking skills in a fast paced environment. Students should have a well-developed number sense and strong algebraic skills. Students are expected to communicate reasoning, both verbally and in writing. Topics include investigations into relationships with points, lines, planes, angles, triangles, polygons, similar figures, congruent figures, and circles. (Prerequisite: Algebra I or Algebra I H)

Algebra II

27.06407 | 10th - 11th grades | full year | 1 credit

This course builds upon concepts learned in Algebra I and Geometry and expands to include the following topics: all types of functions and equations (linear, quadratic, absolute value, cubic, radical, rational, logarithmic, and exponential); inverse functions, matrices, and conic sections. Emphasis will be placed on preparing students for standardized tests such as the ACT and SAT.

Algebra II Honors

27.26407 | 10th - 11th grades | full year | 1 credit

This course is designed to prepare students for the study of pre-calculus mathematics. Topics include linear functions and systems, inequalities coordinates in space, polynomial and rational expressions, radicals, irrational numbers, sequences, series, polynomial functions, exponents, logarithms, matrices, conic sections, and an introduction to trigonometric functions. (prerequisite: Geometry)

Pre-Calculus Honors

27.26247 | 11th - 12th grades | full year | 1 credit

The formal study of trigonometry is included in this course. Students apply technology modeling and problem-solving skills to the study of trigonometric and circular function, identities and inverses, and their applications. Topics include: radian measure of an angle, graphing trigonometric functions, evaluating trigonometric functions, the unit circle, solving trigonometric equations, and verifying trigonometric identities. Also included is the proof and use of addition, subtraction, double, and half-angle formulas.

Statistics

27.05107 | 12th grade | full year | 1 credit

In this course, students learn how to collect, organize, and interpret data. Classroom surveys and experiments are used to generate data for student exploration. Emphasis is placed on the application of statistical methods and the appropriate use of technology. Descriptive and Inferential statistics will be examined.

AP Calculus AB

27.07207 | 12th grade | full year | 1 credit

An Advanced Placement (AP) course in calculus consists of a full high school academic year of work that is comparable to a calculus course in colleges and universities. The course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations are demonstrated through the use of the unifying themes of derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, applications and modeling. A major objective of the class is to prepare students for the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam to be given in the spring.

Test Prep

35.06607 | 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th grade | 1 semester | 0.5 credit

Test Prep is a course designed to help prepare students for the SAT and ACT test. In addition to reviewing the basic verbal and mathematical skills assessed on these tests, students have access to test-taking strategies specific to the exams, real student work samples with explanations, grading rubrics for self-assessment, practice tests with complete multiple-choice assessments, essay prompts, and study resources. Instruction, followed by collaborative, guided, and independent practice, provides the foundation for the course.
