**GEOMETRY**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Algebra I or equivalent

This course develops understandings in mathematics through work focused on the concepts of congruence and similarity. Essential topics include proofs of geometric theorems, constructions, introduction to trigonometry, working with circles, and conditional probability. Application and modeling are emphasized.

**GEOMETRY HONORS**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Algebra I, must meet 9th grade Honors criteria

This course develops understandings in mathematics through work focused on congruence, similarity, and probability. Essential topics include proofs of geometric theorems, constructions, applications of trigonometry, working with circles, conditional probability, and using probability to create models and make decisions. Evaluation, synthesis, and modeling are emphasized.

**INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Teacher recommendation following a passing grade in Geometry

This course is designed to reinforce basic algebraic concepts and enhance the students’ understanding of mathematical applications. An introduction

**ALGEBRA II**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Geometry

Algebra 2 is designed to improve students’ ability to think analytically using Algebraic reasoning. Students will develop problem-solving, logical reasoning, and technological skills. Topics include but are not limited to modeling and solving quadratics, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric equations. Investigation of real-world applications will be incorporated throughout the course. This class is essential for students planning to attend college, and should better prepare students for the ACT. Students must have successfully completed Algebra 1 and Geometry before taking this course.

**ALGEBRA II HONORS**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Geometry, meets Honors criteria (Advanced on the Algebra 1 EOC and a 90% or above in Geometry)

Algebra 2 Honors is designed to apply and extend students’ understandings of functions. Students are expected to master the topics of Algebra 2 as listed under the Algebra 2 course description with more emphasis on the relationships between quadratic, polynomial, and rational functions as well as trigonometry.

**ALGEBRA III**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisites: Teacher recommendation REQUIRED following passing grade in Algebra II.

This course is designed to review and extend skills and concepts from Algebra 2. Some content included in future math courses (such as trigonometric functions and analytic geometry) is

**STATISTICS**

Credit: 0.5 Unit

Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment or completion of Algebra II or Senior who has successfully completed Intermediate Algebra.

This course is an introduction to elementary statistics including a wide variety of applications. It is appropriate for many disciplines such **TI-84 or higher Graphing Calculator is required.**

**AP STATISTICS**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Algebra II or concurrent with Honors Algebra II and teacher recommendation.

Students will study the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. The four broad conceptual themes are: exploring data, planning study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. **TI-84 or higher Graphing Calculator is required.** This is an Advanced Placement course that prepares the student to take the AP Statistics exam. Advanced credit, when available.

**MATH ANALYSIS**

Credit: 0.5 Unit

Prerequisite: Algebra II

This course focuses on functional analysis through the integration of algebraic and geometric concepts.

**PRE-AP CALCULUS
**Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Algebra II with teacher recommendation or Honors Algebra II

Pre-AP Pre-Calculus is a year-long course with honors credit. This course combines the trigonometric, geometric, and algebraic techniques needed to prepare students for the study of calculus, and strengthens students’ conceptual understanding of problems and mathematical reasoning in solving problems. Facility with these topics is especially important for students intending to study calculus, physics, and other sciences, and/or engineering in college. If students do not plan on taking calculus, then they should not take this course. Instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) expand understanding of various function types and their graphs; (2) simplify and solve algebraic and trigonometric expressions, equations, and inequalities; (3) use and be able to identify characteristics of

**AP CALCULUS AB**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Trigonometry Honors and Math Analysis Honors

This course is a college-level course with many applications in engineering and the sciences. TI-84 or higher graphing calculator is required. Topics

**AP CALCULUS BC**

Credit: 1 Unit

Prerequisite: Trigonometry Honors and Math Analysis Honors (Grade of "A" or "B" recommended)

This course is an extension of AP Calculus AB and addresses the same topics at an accelerated (NEARLY COLLEGE-PACED) rate along with additional topics such as indeterminate forms, advanced techniques of integration, and a detailed study of sequences and series. TI-84 or higher graphing calculator is required. This is an Advanced Placement course that prepares the student to take the AP Calculus BC exam. Advanced credit, when available. Most universities consider this essentially equivalent to Calculus 1 and Calculus 2.
