Algebra I

Algebra one is a course designed to provide students with greater insight
into problem solving. Our world is one in which we face the need to
problem solve with varied strategies. Algebra one offers such topics
as equation solving, factoring, functions, systems of equations, and number
systems to help us in this endeavor.

Geometry

Geometry is a course designed to provide students with many opportunities to
reason mathematically. Through the study of topics like parallel
lines, congruent triangles, quadrilaterals, geometric inequalities, circles,
and right triangles, students are called upon to make judgments and give
reasons for each mathematical step.

Geometry (Honors)

This course covers the same topics as geometry. It is a more rigorous
course and moves at a brisker pace. The students who take this course
are required to have done very well in algebra one.

Algebra II

This is a study of the use of advanced algebra skills and concepts in the
set of real and complex numbers. Through problem solving strategies they
study real numbers in equations and inequalities, functions and graphs. They
study systems of equations and inequalities, using matrices, determinants
and a graphing calculator. The study of functions focuses on quadratic
functions as well as polynomial functions. Conic sections are graphed and
equations are written.

Honors Algebra II

This is a study of the use of advanced algebra skills and concepts in the
set of real and complex numbers. Through problem solving strategies they
study exponential and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, real
numbers in equations and inequalities, functions and graphs. They study
systems of equations and inequalities, using matrices, determinants and a
graphing calculator. The study of functions focuses on quadratic functions
as well as polynomial functions. Conic sections are graphed and equations
are written. Trigonometric functions, graphs, identities and equations
complete the topical items in the course. The prerequisite for this class is
an A in Geometry.

Honors Pre-Calculus

Honors Pre-Calculus is a study of varied topics which include more than a
quarter of trigonometry. The course also includes a study of functions,
linear and quadratic regression, solutions of linear, quadratic and higher
order equations and inequalities, logarithms, exponential equations, conic
sections, probability, matrices and limits. A TI-83/84 calculator is
required. The prerequisite for this course is an A in Algebra II, an A or B
in Honors Algebra II or a successful completion of Advanced Functions and
Modeling.

Advanced functions

This course is designed for seniors who have not taken the track leading to
AP Calculus. It is a course made up of statistics, trigonometry, and
advanced algebra and functions. Each of these topics are much needed
in our changing world of technology.

AP Calculus

AP Calculus is a study of limits, derivatives, and integrals. This course
prepares the students to take the AP Calculus AB exam given in the spring.
Graphing calculators are a must for this class. The prerequisite for this
class in an A in Honors Pre-Calculus.
