Mathematics

ALGEBRA I
Mathematics (R)
2 semesters (10 semester periods) Grades 9-12 

This course has elements of a transition from the traditional Algebra I course toward a more integrated curriculum with connections to geometry, statistics and probability, and real-world problem solving. Topics include patterns and geometric figures, data manipulation, graphs, real numbers, equations and inequalities, matrices, polynomial operations, graph variations, and functions.

GEOMETRY
Mathematics (R|E)
2 semesters (10 semester periods) Grades 10-12

PREREQUISITE: C or above in Algebra I 

This course integrates some algebra and trigonometry and introduces logical structures and proofs. Students will be familiarized with basic geometric (Euclidean and analytic) concepts, and encouraged to make conjectures and use reasoning as problem solving tools. Topics include free standing and coordinate geometric shapes and patterns, measurement, transformations, some trigonometry, angles, parallel lines and triangles in proofs, and symmetry.

 

ALGEBRA II
Mathematics (R|E)
2 semesters (10 semester periods) Grades 10-12

PREREQUISITE: Satisfactory grade in Geometry 

 

This course has elements of a transition from the traditional course toward a more integrated curriculum including circular functions, the underpinning of calculus, discrete mathematics such as matrices, probability and statistics, and real-world problem solving. Topics include number properties, solving and graphing linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, functions, polynomials, matrices, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, and rational expressions.

PRE-CALCULUS
Mathematics (E)
2 semesters (10 semester periods) Grade 11-12

PREREQUISITE: C+ or above in Algebra II & Geometry 

Pre-Calculus is an enrichment course recommended for college-bound students. It is not a course in Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry per se but includes most aspects of standard high school mathematics through Algebra 2 and introduces a light treatment of topics from introductory calculus, such as, concepts of continuity, limits, and derivatives of algebraic functions.

CALCULUS
Mathematics (E)
2 semesters (10 semester periods) Grade 11-12

PREREQUISITE: C+ or above Algebra II & Pre-Calculus
 
Calculus is an enrichment elective math course recommended for college-bound students. It is a course that introduces the student to the math concepts of differentiation and integration. The study of inverse functions, integration by parts, partial fractions, trigonometric substitutions, surfaces of revolution, volumes, centroids, infinite series, and Taylor expressions are examples of topics covered. Graphing calculators and mathematical software tools are used extensively.
