This course provides students with a survey of preparatory topics for high school mathematics, including foundations for high school Algebra and Geometry.
This course expands on basic mathematical skills while developing the student’s knowledge of the properties of the real number system and algebraic concepts. Throughout this course students also develop critical logical thinking skills. Topics include solving equations and inequalities, performing various operations with polynomials, factoring polynomials, algebraic fractions, graphing equations and inequalities, solving systems of linear equations, exponents and radicals, and quadratic equations.
This course requires students to develop logical reasoning skills in order to use the properties of geometric figures to solve problems and write proofs. Algebraic concepts are reinforced throughout the course. Students explore the various topics with reference to realistic and relevant applications. Topics include points, lines, planes and angles, reasoning and proofs, line types, congruent triangles and relevant applications, quadrilaterals, connecting proportion and similarity, right angles, analyzing circles, polygons, surface area and volume, and coordinate geometry.
This course expands on topics covered in the Algebra I course. This course challenges students to continue development of logical thinking skills through a study of advanced algebraic concepts. Topics include problem solving through relations and functions (linear, polynomial, rational, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic) and graphing (linear functions, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic.
Calculus is an elective course that covers the topics of first semester college calculus. This course covers various topics in differential and integral calculus and their applications.
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: Describing patterns and departures from patterns
- Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study
- Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation
- Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses
Students who successfully complete the course and examination may receive credit and/or advanced placement for a one-semester introductory college statistics course. This does not necessarily imply that the high school course should be one semester long.
The purpose of this course is to adequately prepare students for calculus by exposing students to the following material: Piecewise Functions, Defined Functions (Even and Odd Functions),.Polynomials, Rational Functions, Geometric Transformations of Functions, Algebra of Functions, Composition of Functions, Trigonometric Functions, Exponential Functions, Inverses of Functions, Logarithms, Parameters and Functions, Parametric Equations, Polar Coordinates, Graphing with Technology, Solving Equations, Curve Fitting and Conic Sections
