## Mathematics Course Offerings

#### Geometry

Prerequisites: Algebra I

Geometry is a traditional class in Euclidian geometry. Postulates about points, lines, and planes will develop inductive reasoning skills. The course covers all traditional geometry topics.

#### Algebra II (Regular and Honors)

Prerequisites: Algebra I and Geometry; enrollment in the Honor’s section requires honors grades in previous courses and teacher recommendation.

#### Algebra III/Trigonometry

Prerequisites: Algebra II or equivalent

#### Pre-Calculus (Regular and Honors)

Prerequisites: Algebra II; enrollment in the Honor’s section requires honors grades in previous courses and teacher recommendation.

Pre-calculus builds upon mathematical and analytical concepts introduced in Algebra II and prepares students for upper-level mathematics courses, both at the secondary and collegiate levels. Students study linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions, analytic geometry, triangle trigonometry and trigonometric functions, complex numbers, probability, and statistics. The Honor’s section of this course covers additional topics and prepares students for the Advanced Placement sections of Calculus and Statistics.

#### Calculus (Honors)

Prerequisites: Pre-calculus, honors grades in previous courses and teacher recommendation.

#### Statistics

Prerequisites: Algebra II or equivalent.

#### AP Calculus AB

Prerequisites: Pre-calculus, honors grades in previous courses and teacher recommendation.

These courses prepare students for the AP Calculus exam. The AP course covers topics in differential and integral calculus, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations. Students learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.
