Secondary Mathematics II Honors- Algebra/Geometry
10th-11th
Year


Students in Secondary Mathematics II Honors will focus on quadratic expressions, equations and functions, extend the set of rational numbers to the set of complex numbers, link probability and data through conditional probability and counting methods, study similarity and right triangle trigonometry and study circls with their quadratic alegebraic representations. Honors students will also rpresent complex numbers in their operations on teh complex plane, solve systems of equations, prove and apply trigonometric identities, express conic sections algebraically and solve problems using volume measurements.

Geometry
10th-12th
Year


If you passed Elementary Algebra, this is the course for you. Students will explore geometry through inductive and deductive reasoning, technology, construction, manipulative and algebraic connections. Students will also explore logic, angle and line relationships, triangles and other polygons, congruence and similarity. Trigonometric ratio of sine, cosine and tangent are used to solve triangle problems. Students will use area, volume, geometric probability and geometric relationships to solve real-life problems. This course prepares students for Intermediate Algebra. Teacher signature required: (Present Math teacher).

Intermediate Algebra
10th-12th
Year

a TI-86 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required.
This course is for college-bound students who are not in the honors track and have passed Geometry or Applied Math 2. Students will acquire reasoning skills and knowledge necessary for many careers. The study of functions is the primary focus of Intermediate Algebra. These functions include polynomials, power functions, exponential and logarithms as well as trig functions. Students will study these functions using traditional algebraic methods and will also use technology to apply graphical and numerical methods. The course content also includes complex numbers, systems of equations and probability. Teacher signature required: (Present Math teacher).

Intermediate Algebra Honors

Year

a TI-84 graphing calculator is required.
This course is for college-bound students who have completed Algebra 1 and Geometry. The course covers the same material found in Intermediate Algebra but in greater depth. The course also covers the concepts of Trigonometry in depth. If you excel in mathematics and would like to take A. P. Calculus and/or A. P. Statistics, you belong in this course. Teacher signature required: (Present Math teacher).

Pre-Calculus
10th-12th
Year

a TI-86 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required.
This course is for college-bound students who are not on the honors track and have passed Intermediate Algebra. The concepts of trigonometry are covered in the first semester and college algebra topics are covered in the second semester. Students will see how mathematical functions can be used to model real-world situations. They will use technology to fit mathematical functions to real-world data, make predictions and solve problems. Teacher signature required: (Present Math teacher).

Pre-Calculus Honors
11th-12th
Year

a TI-Nspire CAS graphing calculator is required.
This course is for college-bound students who have completed Intermediate Algebra Honors. The course will cover the same material found in Trigonometry/College Algebra (Pre-Calculus) but in greater depth. If you excel in mathematics and would like to take A. P. Calculus and/or A. P. Statistics, you belong in this course. Teacher signature required: (Present Math teacher).

A. P. Calculus (BC)
11th-12th Double block
Year


Prerequisite: successful completion of Pre-calculus.
This Advanced Placement course includes the material covered in the first two semesters of a college calculus class. Students pursuing a university major in science, math, and business or engineering are encouraged to take AP Calculus. The course prepares students to pass the BC Advanced Placement calculus test. Students who pass this test are typically able to waive the first year of college calculus. Two periods are necessary to provide enough time to cover all the material in the course. The additional period will also provide time for students to bring homework assignments and is required. Teacher signature required: (Mr. Barton- 213).

A. P. Statistics
11th-12th
Year
Calculators for rent $25.
A TI-Nspire CAS calculator is required
Prerequisite: mastery through Pre-calculus.
This Advanced Placement course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. Four conceptual themes are studies: (1) Exploring Data: (2) Planning a study; (3) Probability and simulation; (4) Statistical Inference - hypothesis testing and confidence intervals. This course prepares student to pass the AP Statistics test. Students who pass this test are typically able to waive a semester of introductory college statistics. Teacher signature required: (Mr. Kushlan- 211).

College Prep Mathematics

Year

A TI-84 calculator is required
Prerequisite: Intermediate Algebra.
Students will acquire skills needed to be successful in Pre-Calculus. The focus is on analysis and use of functions. Emphasis will be given to collecting data to motivate the development of the analytical model for each function that will be studied. Teacher signature required: (Current Math teacher).

Introduction to Statistics/ Intuitive Calculus
12th
Year
Calculators for rent $25.
A TI-Nspire CAS calculator is required
Prerequisite: Pre-calculus
This course prepares students for university Statistics and Calculus. Students will learn how to collect data, organize their own and others’ data and display the data in graphs and charts that will be useful in answering their questions and forming conclusions. Students will estimate probabilities in experiments and compare experimental and theoretical probabilities. Students will discover the relationship between the concept of slope and the formal definition of the derivative, with its accompanying applications. Students will also study antiderivatives and integrals including applications. Teacher signature required: (Current math teacher).
