This course begins with the study of high school algebra.
Algebra I-A covers Chapters 1-7 in the Algebra book. Students who
complete Algebra I-A and Algebra I-B will have completed a traditional
Algebra 1 course. Topics included are: operations with real numbers,
solving linear equations and inequalities, and graphing solutions to
equations and inequalities.

Prerequisite: Placement Test and Teacher Recommendation. .

Algebra 1-B covers Chapters 7-13 in the Algebra I book. The
completion of this course indicates that students have completed a
traditional Algebra I course.

Prerequisite: Algebra I-A or Teacher Recommendation

A basic study of mathematics for any student who will continue
his/her education in a math or science related field. Most colleges
require Algebra and Geometry for admission. The course studies the
language of algebra, operations with real numbers, equation solving,
inequalities, factoring, and more.

Prerequisite: Placement Test and Teacher Recommendation

This course is designed to aid the students in critical and
analytical thinking, inductive and deductive reasoning, and
problem-solving techniques. The course consists of discovering
fundamental principles of geometric figures in two and three dimensions
and the applications of these properties. Most colleges require
students to have credits in Algebra I and Geometry. This course is
a prerequisite for Algebra II.

Prerequisite: Algebra I w/C or higher, or Teacher
Recommendation.

Topics covered are the same as in Geometry but at a much
quicker pace and more in depth. *Denotes computer related activities are
also required in this course.

Prerequisite: Acc Algebra I w/C or higher, or Teacher
Recommendation.

This course will provide an investigative approach to geometric
topics. Students will study plane geometric figures and some selected
solids. Discovering and applying geometric concepts will be the main
emphasis of this course. Students will be encouraged to use
careful, logical thinking while developing their problem solving skills.
Topics include, but are not limited to, geometric reasoning, triangles,
polygons, circles, transformations, area, volume, and similarity.

Prerequisite: Algebra I Credit

This is a continuation of Algebra I with more advanced problems
and techniques. Students planning college work in business,
economics, statistics, architecture or science should take Algebra II.
This is a prerequisite for Trig/Pre-Calculus. Prerequisite:
Geometry Credit w/C or higher, or Teacher Recommendation

Topics covered are the same as in Algebra II but at a much
quicker pace. Additional topics include discrete math, trig, more
matrices, etc.

Prerequisite: Acc Geometry w/C or higher, or Teacher
Recommendation

This course is essential for the study of Calculus. Topics
studied include: trigonometric functions and identities, angles and
their measure, inverse trig functions and graphs, advanced algebra
topics, introduction into calculus. Students planning to attend college
specializing in medicine, biology, engineering, physical science,
mathematics, and business are encouraged to take this course as
preparation for college.

Prerequisite: Algebra II w/C or higher, or Teacher
Recommendation

This course is designed to cover the same topics as the
Trigonometry/Pre-Calculus class at a faster pace and in more depth.

Prerequisite: Accelerated Algebra II w/C or higher, or Teacher
Recommendation.

This is a class open to seniors who want to enhance their
mathematic skills. The topics covered will include mathematical
reasoning and solving real-life problems using logic and set theory,
mathematics of finance, probability, and basic statistical principles,
graphic presentation, descriptive measures of central tendency,
dispersion, and location, inferential statistics and hypotheses testing,
analysis and inference of linear correlation coefficient and slope of
regression line.

Prerequisite: Geometry Credit and senior status

This course is designed for the most mathematically talented
students. Topics include a discussion of polynomial, rational,
algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic and hyperbolic
functions, maxima, minima, Rolle's Theorem, curve sketching, area, the
trapezoidal rule and volumes of solids of revolution.
Prerequisite: Accelerated Trig Pre-Calc w/C or higher, or Teacher
Recommendation
