    Algebra I (Part 1)

    This course integrates algebra and geometry concepts at a slower pace. The course focuses on linear concepts and basic geometry. This course prepares students for Foundations of Algebra I (Part 2). Students should have a scientific calculator. Year course for grades 9-12.

    Algebra I (Part 2)

    This course is a sequel to Algebra (Part 2) and integrates algebra and geometry concepts. This course covers linear and quadratic equations, graphing, and functions in addition to basic geometry. Students who complete both parts of Algebra will have completed a full Algebra I course with basic geometry. Students should have a scientific calculator. They will be exposed to graphing calculators. This course prepares students for Geometry. Prerequisite: Must have at least a C in Algebra I (Part 1) Year course for grades 9-12.

    Algebra I

    This course focuses on extensive use of linear and simple quadratic equations, graphing, functions and relationships, and integrates geometry and algebra. Scientific calculators are required. Students are exposed to graphing calculators. Year course for grades 9-12.

    Algebra II

    Builds upon concepts learned in Algebra I. New topics include complex numbers, quadratic relations, logarithms, and matrices. A graphing calculator is required. Prerequisite: At least a C in Algebra I; At least a C in Geometry. Year course for grades 9-12.

    Geometry

    This course investigates a range of subjects including Non-Euclidean Geometry, spatial relations, logic, proof, congruence, reflections, polygons, circles, and the dimensions of various figures. Prerequisite: At least a C in Algebra I. Year course for grades 9-12.

    Geometry (Part 1)

    This course covers the first half of Geometry and investigates a range of subjects, including Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry, spatial relations, logic, proof, congruence, transformations, polygons, circles, and the dimensions of various figures. This course reviews Algebra I content on a regular basis. Prerequisite: At least a C in Algebra I or Algebra I (Part 2). Year course for grades 9-12.

    Geometry (Part 2)

    This course is a sequel to Geometry (Part 1) and continues to investigate a range of subjects, including Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry, spatial relations, logic, proof, congruence, transformations, polygons, circles, and the dimensions of various figures. This course reviews Algebra I content on a regular basis. Prerequisite: At least a C in Geometry, Part 1. Year course for grades 9-12.

    Computer Science

    The main emphasis is on programming oriented toward solving mathematic problems. The program language is True BASIC. It is strongly recommended that students taking this course (1) enjoy math; (2) have a computer at home or allow for time before or after school to complete assignments; (3) have keyboarding skills. Prerequisite: Algebra I. Second semester course for grades 9-12.

    Advanced Mathematics

    An elective which follows Algebra I and II and Geometry. It prepares students for college work in mathematics. The structure of the number system is stressed. Topics include sequences and series, mathematical induction, vectors, and trigonometry. A graphics calculator is required. Prerequisites: At least a C in Algebra II and Geometry. Year course for grades 11-12.

    Advanced Placement Calculus

    Covers differentiation and integration and some of their applications. Limits and analytic geometry also receive quite a bit of attention. Students taking this course may take the Advanced Placement exam and should be able to test out of at least one semester of college calculus. A graphics calculator is required. This is a weighted class. Prerequisite: At least a C in Advanced Math. Year course.

    Statistics

    The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data by exploring data, planning a study, producing models and confirming models by statistical inference. This academic class prepares students for either college or the world of work. Prerequisite: At least a C in Algebra II. First semester for grades 11-12.

    Advanced Placement Statistics

    The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes: exploring data, planning a study, producing models using probability and simulation, and statistical inference. Students completing this class will be prepared for the Advanced Placement Statistics Exam. A TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required. This is a weighted class. Prerequisite: At least a C in Advanced Math. Year course.
