# Mathematics

## Mathematics Department

### Algebra I

Students study Algebra including writing, solving, graphing multi-step linear and quadratic equations, functions, and inequalities as well as systems of equations and inequalities. Also included are factoring and operations with polynomials and radicals.

### Algebra I Honors

Students must be proficient in operations with integers, fractions, and decimals to be considered for this course. Topics covered are similar to those in Algebra I but is covered more quickly and in depth. Topics are solving and graphing multi-step equations and inequalities, factoring, and operations with polynomials and radicals.

### Algebra II

The study of algebraic applications is continued and expanded to include more advanced systems of equations, statistics, simplifying rational expressions, solving and graphing quadratic equations, and using the quadratic formula.

### Algebra II Honors

The study of algebraic applications is expanded to include more advanced systems of equations, statistics, simplifying rational expressions, solving and graphing quadratic equations, and using the quadratic formula. Students also study logarithmic equations and advanced algebraic topics along with the theory that leads to the topics presented.

### AP Calculus AB

Explore the key concepts, methods, and applications of single-variable calculus including all topics covered in AP Calculus AB (functions, graphs, limits, derivatives, integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus) as well as additional topics in differential and integral calculus, such as parametric, polar and vector functions, and series. Become familiar with concepts, results, and problems expressed in multiple ways including graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. Use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support your conclusions.

### AP Calculus BC

This Advanced Placement (AP) course in Calculus consists of a full high school academic year of work that is comparable to Calculus courses in college and universities. It is expected that students who take AP Calculus will seek college credit, placement, or both, and will take the Advanced Placement (AP) exam at the end of the year. This AP Calculus course includes the study of functions, graphs, and limits; derivatives and their applications; and integrals and their applications. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to: work with functions represented in a variety of ways; understand the meaning of the derivative in terms of a rate of change; understand the meaning of the definite integral and be able to solve a variety of problems; understand the relationship between the derivative the definite integral; communicate Mathematics both orally and in well-written sentences and should be able to explain solutions to problems; model a written description of a physical situation with a function, a differential equation, or an integral; use technology to help solve problems; determine the reasonableness of solutions; and develop an appreciation of calculus as a coherent body of knowledge and as a human accomplishment.

### AP Computer Science Principles

AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. With a unique focus on creative problem solving and real-world applications, AP Computer Science Principles prepares students for college and a career. Whether itâ€™s 3-D animation, engineering, music, app development, medicine, visual design, robotics, or political analysis, computer science is the engine that powers the technology, productivity, and innovation that drives the world.

### AP Statistics

The Advanced Placement (AP) course in Statistics consists of a full high school academic year of work that is comparable to Statistics courses in college and universities. The AP course in Statistics introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data.

### College Algebra

This course is accelerated algebra that includes topics: equations, functions, transformations, linear and quadratic functions and inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomials, and rational functions.

### College Mathematics

Students will gain a working knowledge of college-level mathematics and its application to real-life problems. There is an emphasis on understanding mathematical concepts and their applications. Topics include set theory, probability, statistics, finance, and geometry, as well as general mathematics including personal finance, set theory, exponential growth and decay, probability, and statistics.

### Geometry

Students use geometric methods, properties, and relationships as a means to recognize, draw, describe, connect, and analyze shapes and representations in the physical world. Topics also include recognizing and applying inductive and deductive reasoning and the language of logic.

### Geometry Honors

Honors Geometry covers the same topics as Geometry in greater depth. In addition, students study the theory that leads to the topics presented. Proofs are included in the curriculum.

### Precalculus

The study of algebraic applications is continued with the study of multi-valuable linear and nonlinear equations and inequalities.

### Precalculus Honors

This is an accelerated Algebra course that includes the topics: equations, functions, transformations, linear and quadratic functions and inequalities, systems of linear equations and inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomials, rational functions, sequences, and series.

### Trig w/ Algebra

This course is a comprehensive coverage of trigonometry and selected topics from college algebra for students intending to take calculus: measurements of angles, trigonometric functions, equations and graphs, inverse trigonometric functions, identities, polar coordinates, solutions of triangles, applications, complex numbers, DeMoivreâ€™s theorem, vectors, logarithms, exponential functions, partial fractions, conics, sequences, and series.
