Algebra I
Prerequisite: Pre-Algebra
1 Credit                        Open to Grade: 9
A preparatory course that places an emphasis on the Systematic development of the
language through which most of mathematics is communicated. Provides the
Mathematical understanding top operate with concepts at an abstract level, and then
apply them in a process that fosters generalizations and insights beyond the original
content. Topics covered are: properties of the number system, linear functions,
inequalities, operations and real numbers and polynomials, exponents, radicals, and

Honors Algebra 1

1 credit                          Open to Grade: 9
Prerequisite: 8th Grade Algebra 1
This course is designed to enhance the honors math curriculum by providing an extended
rigorous study of Algebra concepts including exponential relations: absolute value
functions, right triangle trigonometry and topics in probability and statistics.
Experiments involving graphing calculator technology will support the study of concepts.

Data and Measurement

Prerequisite: Algebra 1
1 Credit                               Open to Grade: 10
Measurement within a problem-solving context will include calculating rates using
appropriate units and converting within measurement systems. Data analysis including
measure of central tendency and visual representations of data will be studied. An
understanding of correlation and causation will be developed and reasonable lines of best
fit will be used to make predictions. Students will solve problem situations requiring right
triangle trigonometry. Elementary probability theory will be used to determine
the probability of events including independence, dependence and mutually exclusive

Geometry

1 Credit
Enrolled in Honors Algebra 1), 10-11-12
Within this course, students will have the opportunity to study points, lines, planes,
triangle congruence and similarity; properties of quadrilaterals; right triangles; circles;
basics constructions; perimeters, areas, volumes; and basic trigonometry.
Introduction to Algebra II

Prerequisite: Algebra 1 and Teacher Recommendation
1 Credit                        Open to Grades: 10-11-12
This course is designed for students who may not be academically ready for Algebra II.
Placement of students is by recommendation of the Algebra 1 teacher and not student
request. Topics in this course will include algebraic functions, number systems, systems
of equations, polynomials, matrices, inequalities, factoring, quadratic formula, and
graphing.

Algebra II

Prerequisite: Algebra 1
1 Credit                    Open to Grade: 10-11-12
The study of functions and an extension of the concepts of Algebra I and many of the
concepts of geometry are provided. Topics covered are: linear and quadratic equations
and functions; systems equations and inequalities; polynomials and rational
polynomial expressions; polynomial functions.

Honors Algebra II

Prerequisite: Students from Honors Algebra I or Algebra I with
Teacher recommendation.
1 credit                       Open to Grades: 10-11
This course provides a rigorous preparation for Pre-Calculus, with an emphasis on
algebraic proof and provides an enriched version of Algebra II through the study of
additional objectives and topics including conic sections, statistics, and sequences and
series. Successful completion of this course prepares students for entry into Pre-
Calculus. Honors Algebra II is a weighted course.

Statistics

Prerequisite: Algebra II and Geometry
1 Credit                      Open to Grades: 11-12
This course analyzes data by various means including Classification of data; the
representation of data by graphs; the computation on sample means: and the computation
of sample variables.
Mathematics for Business & Industry

Prerequisite: Algebra II and Geometry
1 Credit                       Open to grade: 12
This course enables the student to explore mathematical content for personal, business,
and industrial use. Math concepts and skills are applied through study and problem-
solving activities in real-world situations in the following areas: banking,
measurement, borrowing, and investing, consumer purchases, and financial management.
Leadership development will be provided through FBLA.

Introduction to College Algebra

Prerequisite: Geometry and Algebra II
1 Credit                        Open to Grades: 10-11-12
This course is designed for students who may need some additional skills prior to
entering Pre-Calculus or college mathematics. Topics from Algebra II are reviewed and
the following additional topics are studied in depth: functions, trigonometry, and
sequences and series.

Pre-Calculus

Prerequisite: Teacher recommendation, and grade of “B”
In Algebra II and Geometry
1 Credit                        Open to Grades: 11-12
Topics for this course include quadratic equations and their graphs; linear and quadratic
inequalities; functions and their graphs, trigonometry functions, analytical
trigonometry, logarithms and sequences and series. Pre-calculus is a weighed course.

Advanced Placement Calculus AB

Prerequisite: Honors/ AP Policy with grade of a least a
“B” in Pre-Calculus, teacher recommendation required.
1 Credit                                 Open to grade: 12
AP Calculus AB begins the sequence of the Advanced Placement preparatory program.
This course follows the AP College Board curriculum. Topics included in this
course are; elementary functions and the study of differential and integral calculus.
Graphing calculators are required and used when appropriate. Students selecting
this course are undertaking a college level program both require considerable study time
outside the classroom in addition to assigned class work and homework. Students
taking AB Calculus will be expected to take BC and will be required to take the AP
exam. Successful completion of the AP exam may result in college credit. Calculus is a
weighted course.
Advanced Placement Calculus BC

Prerequisite: Advanced Placement Calculus AB
1 Credit                       Open to Grades: 12
AP Calculus BC is a continuation of the topics covered in Calculus AB. Major topics
include: differential equations, Polar functions, parametric functions, sequences, and
series. Upon completion of Calculus BC the students will be required to take either the
Calculus AB Exam or the Calculus BC Exam.
