MATHEMATICS

All course offerings are dependent upon teacher availability, enrollment, space, and scheduling.

Algebra Excel (Grade 9, 10) Prerequisite: teacher recommendation.

This course provides students with additional support in order to be successful in Algebra I. Students earn an elective credit for the course. The course serves to build proportional reasoning with rates, ratios and linear relationships, and functions.  Visual models bring coherence to instruction, making abstract concepts more concrete.Students will use computer resources, as well as complete hands-on activities, to differentiate and meet their individual needs. Students will work through an individual plan targeted specifically to their areas of need. The grading for the course is separate from the Algebra I course and is dependent on completion of assignments and proficiency on assessments.

ALGEBRA I PART I #3131 (2 Course Sequence) (Grade 9) Student will also be registered for Algebra I Part II

ALGEBRA I PART II #3132 (2 Course Sequence) (Grade 9) SOL/EOC test administered

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra I Part I and teacher recommendation.                                                                       

This course includes work with polynomials, factoring, inequalities and their graphs, systems of equations, and quadratic equations.

ALGEBRA I #3130 (Grades 10, 11)
SOL/EOC test administered                                                                                                                        

This course includes work with real numbers, variables, graphing, basic properties of real numbers, solving inequalities, functions, relations, systems of equations, and factoring.            

GEOMETRY #3143 (Grades 9, 10, 11, 12) SOL/EOC test administered                                                   

Prerequisite: Algebra I

This course includes work with points, lines, space, angles, proving triangles congruent, work with quadrilaterals, and work with parallels and perpendiculars. The student will be able to write proofs of simple and medium complexity as well as demonstrate theorems. The course also includes constructions and some coordinate geometry. 

ALGEBRA, FUNCTIONS, AND DATA ANALYSIS #3134

Prerequisite:  Successful completion of Algebra I. Course must be taken before Algebra II.  Counts as Math credit for modified or standard diplomas only.

Through the investigation of mathematical models and interpretation/analysis of data from real life situations, students will strengthen conceptual understandings of mathematics and further develop connections between algebra and statistics. The infusion of technology in the course will assist in modeling and investigating functions and data analysis.

ALGEBRA II #3135 (Grades 9, 10, 11, 12) SOL/EOC test administered                          

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra I and Geometry; below a 70 in Algebra I, student must take AFDA before taking Algebra II.  This course begins with a review of Algebra I, but on a more advanced level. It includes the algebraic topics of functions and their graphs, radicals, quadratic equations, conic, and the complex number system. 

ALGEBRA II HONORS #3135H (Grade 9) SOL/EOC test administered                         

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra I and Geometry with 85 or better in middle school

Advanced Algebra II is an enriched Algebra II curriculum with an in-depth study of equations and functions.  It is designed for students who have completed Algebra I and Geometry at the middle school.  This course is taught in a more mathematically rigorous manner and at an accelerated pace.

DISCRETE MATHEMATICS #3154
(Grades 11, 12)    Prerequisite: Algebra II

This course will provide students an interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum where they will use fundamental concepts of algebra-based modeling to explore real world phenomena ranging from the social and management science to the physical and biological sciences.

PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS #3190 (Grades 10, 11, 12)                                                       

Prerequisite: Algebra II

This course provides students an interdisciplinary liberal arts approach where they will use concepts of mathematics to explore the two main functions of statistics: to describe a body of data in a succinct manner and to make inferences from samples to populations. Students will study the theory of probability, statistical measurement, probability distributions, and statistical inference. Full use of the graphing calculator and available computer software will be included.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT STATISTICS

#3192 (Grades 10, 11, 12)

Prerequisite: B or better in Probability and Statistics.

The purpose of this challenging Advanced Placement course in statistics is to introduce students to major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data.  Students are exposed to themes in exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns and statistical inference.

MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS #3162 (Grades 10, 11, 12)                                                              

Prerequisite: B or better in Algebra II

The content of Mathematical Analysis will serve as appropriate preparation for a calculus course. It is an in-depth study of functions and their characteristics. The study will include, but not be limited to, polynomial, rational, radical, exponential, and piece-wise-defined functions. A thorough treatment of trigonometry is provided through the study of trigonometric definitions, applications, graphing, and solving trigonometric equations. Emphasis is placed on using connections between right triangle ratios, trigonometric functions, and circular functions.

Graphing utilities will be used.

CALCULUS #3178 (Grades 11, 12)                                                                                                   

Prerequisite: B or better in Math Analysis and recommendation of Math Analysis teacher

Students enrolled in Calculus must meet the following requirements:  Complete the summer assignment (consists of a review of Pre-Calculus). Submit the completed assignment by August 15th (no late work will be accepted). Failure to meet any of these requirements will result in a schedule change.  Calculus is a rigorous, challenging course designed only for highly motivated students. This course covers functions, limits, continuity, differentiation and integration of algebraic, trigonometric functions with applications, definite integrals, indeterminate forms, and partial differentiation. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) CALCULUS #3177 (Grades 11, 12)                                           

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Calculus and recommendation of Calculus teacher

AP Calculus is a rigorous, challenging course designed for highly motivated students. This course completes the calculus topics required for the AB Advanced Placement Calculus test. A main objective of the course is that students will be successful on the test.

COMPUTER SCIENCE I #3184 (Grades 10, 11, 12)                                                                        

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra II or concurrently

This course is designed to introduce the students to structure programming. The development of computers will be discussed with units on history, hardware, and software. Structured programming with a top-down design will be emphasized while the students learn data types, looping, array manipulations, and files. The course covers the data structure and program structure that will be encountered in a first semester college course in programming. Problem solving, simulation, and software design will be emphasized as well as analysis of searching and sorting algorithms. Algorithms will be developed for searching and sorting lists of information.

COMPUTER SCIENCE II #3186 (Grades 11, 12)                                                                            

Prerequisite: C or better in Computer Science I and recommendation of the teacher
