Algebra 1 introduces the student to variables, algebraic expressions, equations, functions, inequalities, and their graphical representation. The student develops the ability to explore and solve mathematical problems, think critically, work cooperatively with others, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly.
Geometry continues the three-year college-preparatory mathematics sequence begun in Algebra 1 A. The course introduces the student to the principles of inductive and deductive reasoning implications, coordinate and transformational geometry, the properties of polygons and circles, and concepts of area and volume. The student expands his/her ability to explore and solve problems mathematically, think logically and critically, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly.
Algebra 2 completes the three-year college-preparatory mathematics sequence. The course will emphasize an exploration of functions and equations and their applications. The student will study linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential,Logarithmic, and rational functions. Additional topics include systems of equations and inequalities, powers, roots and radicals, conics, sequences and series, and probability and statistics.
Business Finance is designed to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of personal and business finance that are relevant to the lives of pre-teens, teens, and young adults that build a solid foundation for financial independence. Each lesson targets a learning competency with strategically planned activities that lead students toward achieving the target competency.
AP Calculus AB includes a study of limits, derivatives and integrals of rational, circular, and exponential functions and their inverses. The student may obtain college credit and/or advanced placement by taking the Calculus AB Advanced Placement examination.
AP Calculus BC includes a study of limits, derivatives and integrals of rational, circular, and exponential functions and their inverses. The student may obtain college credit and/or advanced placement by taking the Calculus BC Advanced Placement examination. This course also prepares students to take the IB Math SL examination.
The purpose of AP Statistics is to introduce the student to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. The student is exposed to four broad conceptual themes: exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. The curriculum stresses the development of statistical thinking. Emphasis is placed on analysis of reliability and worth of inferences made from data.
