Algebra 12: Required Course credit earned: Mathematics (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. No Prerequisite Grade 9 In the first year course in algebra the representation of functions is used as a unifying theme. Students are introduced to linear, quadratic, and exponential functions through graphical, numerical and symbolic representations. Students learn to solve linear equations, inequalities, systems of equations, and quadratic equations. They deepen their understanding of basic algebraic concepts using investigative activities, and problem solving to develop confidence in their ability to think mathematically as they work both individually and collaboratively. After successful completion of this course, students should move on to Geometry.
Geometry 12: Required Course credit earned: Mathematics (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: Algebra 12 Grades 912 In this course students study geometric shapes in 2 and 3 dimensional and their relationships. It is a visual as well as analytical subject, integrating spatial and numerical concepts. Students classify and describe shapes in terms of properties, congruence, similarity and transformations. The course introduces students to different forms of mathematical logic, including inductive and deductive reasoning leading to proofs. Students solve problems using properties, proportions, and trigonometric relationships. This class also includes probability topics. Algebra 12 is reviewed with geometric applications. Students may use open source software and graphing calculator. After successful completion of this course, students should move on to Advanced Algebra. Concurrent enrollment in Algebra 12 is possible.
Advanced Algebra 34: Required Course credit earned: Mathematics (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: Geometry 12 Grades 912 This course emphasizes modeling data and problem situations with functions, specifically linear quadratic, polynomial, exponential, rational, radical and logarithmic functions. The course also introduces students to complex numbers and problems in trigonometry and statistics. Students deepen their understanding of these topics as they work both individually and in groups to solve problems, to apply mathematics and to communicate their reasoning. Students will use the TI84 Plus graphing calculator in class to enhance these topics. After successful completion of this course, students move on to PreCalculus , AP Statistics, or FST. Concurrent enrollment in Geometry is possible.
FST: Functions, Statistics, & Trigonometry 12: Course credit earned: Elective (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: Advanced Algebra 34 Grade 12 This course is intended for students who struggled in Advanced Algebra 34 . The first semester covers introductory topics in statistics, such as understanding and organizing data, and functions. The second semester covers an introduction to Precalculus topics such as exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, and trigonometric functions and graphs. Mathematics 49 PreCalculus 12 Course credit earned: Elective (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: Advanced Algebra 34 Grades 1012 This course is intended for students who demonstrated a strong understanding in Algebra 34. This course extends the concepts of Advanced Algebra. The class explores relations and functions graphically, numerically, symbolically, and verbally. The class examines exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, rational and trigonometric functions and investigates applications from a variety of perspectives. Content will be explored with and without the use of a graphing calculator. After successful completion of this course, students should move on to AP Calculus AB and/or AP Statistics. Note: A TI84 graphing calculator is highly recommended for this course. Note: A TI84 graphing calculator is highly recommended for this course. AP Calculus AB 12 Course credit earned: Elective (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: PreCalculus Grades 1112 The content of this course will include such topics as limits, derivatives, applications of derivatives, modeling and optimization, integration, numerical integration, applications of integration and an introduction to differential equations. Upon the completion of this course, students will be prepared to take the AB Calculus Advanced Placement test. Students should move on to AP Calculus BC. Note: A TI graphing calculator is required for this course. AP Calculus B

AP Calculus BC 12: Course credit earned: Elective (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: AP Calculus AB Grades 1112 This class will begin with a review of derivatives and integrals, applications for derivatives and integrals, differential equations and modeling. The class will cover L’Hopitals’s Rule, Relative rates of growth, Improper integrals, Partial fractions and Integral tables. The next section will cover infinite series, power series, Taylor Series, Taylor’s Theorem, Radius of convergence, and testing convergence at endpoints. Lastly covering Parametric, vector, and polar functions. The goal of the class will be to prepare the students to take the BC Calculus AP exam. Note: A TI84 or above graphing calculator is required for this course. *Availability of this course is dependent upon student enrollment.
AP Statistics 12: Course credit earned: Elective (1.0) May be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: Advanced Algebra 34 Grades 1112 This course analyzes data in various forms. First semester will cover exploring and describing data, including the Normal model and linear regression; designing studies and experiments, and probability. Second semester will cover statistical inference, including confidence intervals and hypothesis tests. This course requires more reading and writing than a typical math class, and most calculations are done using technology. This covers the same material as a college Intro to Statistics class. Upon completion of this course, students will be prepared to take the Advanced Placement Statistics test. Note: A TI84 graphing calculator is required for this course.
