Algebra I

Prerequisite: Pre-Algebra

Grade: 9

(1 credit)

Designed as the first of a two-year sequence in the study of algebra, this course emphasizes rules, symbols and the laws of arithmetic as applied to algebraic structure. This is the first course in the college-preparatory program.

Mathematical Models with Applications

Prerequisite: Algebra I

Grade: 9

(1 credit)

Students build on K-8 and Algebra I foundations by using algebraic, graphical and geometric reasoning to recognize patterns and structure; to model information; and to solve problems from various disciplines.

Geometry

Prerequisite: Algebra I, Algebra I Pre-AP

(1 credit)

One-year course with emphasis primarily on plane geometry, but including some space and coordinate geometry. Formal geometric proof is emphasized.

Algebra II Pre-AP

Prerequisite: Algebra I

(1 credit)

The second of a two-year sequence in algebra, this course teaches students to combine separate algebraic skills with analytical and critical thinking skills to solve real-world problems. Algebra II Pre-AP and Geometry Pre-AP must be taken concurrently.

Geometry Pre-AP

Prerequisite: Algebra II Pre-AP

(1 credit)

More intensive and extensive than the regular course. Specific differences include, but are not limited to, separate units on trigonometry, vectors, conics and intensive space and coordinate geometry. Emphasis is on problems that require considerable mathematical insight. Algebra II Pre-AP and Geometry Pre-AP must be taken concurrently.

Precalculus Pre-AP

Prerequisite: Algebra II Pre-AP and Geometry Pre-AP

(1 credit)

This full-year honors course comprises functions and graphs, trigonometry, discrete mathematics and data analysis, and an introduction to calculus with primary emphasis on functions and the development of problem solving, reasoning, communication and technology skills. This course is more intensive and extensive than precalculus.

Calculus I AP (AB or BC)

Prerequisite: Precalculus or Precalculus Pre-AP

(1 credit)

University-level calculus course for high school seniors that provides the opportunity to earn three to nine semester hours of college/university credit. The scope of the course includes concepts associated with the study of elementary functions, limits of functions, derivatives, techniques of integration, application of integral, transcendental functions, vector functions, polar coordinates, sequences and series and parametric equations. Calculus may be selected at two levels, AB or BC
