PRE-ALGEBRA

                                                   (PRE-ALG)

 

Pre-Algebraprovides the mathematical background, skills, and thinking processes necessary for the successful completion of Algebra. Topics include: (1) number sense and computation, (2) algebra and functions, (3) geometry, (4) measurement, (5) data analysis, and (6) probability. The instructional program of this course addresses both the understanding and use of the concepts in appropriate problem-solving situations.

·        Credits: A two credit course

·        Counts as a Mathematics Course for the General Diploma only or as an Elective for the Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas

ALGEBRA I

                                                    (ALG I)

 

Algebra Iprovides a formal development of the algebraic skills and concepts necessary for students to succeed in advanced courses. In particular, the instructional program in this course provides for the use of algebraic skills in a wide range of problem-solving situations. The concept of function is emphasized throughout the course. Topics include: (1) operations with real numbers, (2) linear equations and inequalities, (3) relations and functions, (4) polynomials, (5) algebraic fractions, and (6) nonlinear equations.

·        Credits: A two credit course

·        Fulfills the Algebra I/Integrated Mathematics I requirement for the General, Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas

ALGEBRA II

                                                    (ALG II)

 

Algebra IIis a course that extends the content of Algebra I and provides further development of the concept of a function. Topics include: (1) relations, functions, equations and inequalities; (2) conic sections; (3) polynomials; (4) algebraic fractions; (5) logarithmic and exponential functions; (6) sequences and series; and (7) counting principles and probability.

·        Recommended Prerequisite: Algebra I

·        Credits: A two credit course

·        Fulfills the Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III requirement for the Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas and counts as a Mathematics Course for the General Diploma

GEOMETRY

                                                    (GEOM)

 

Geometrystudents examine the properties of two- and three-dimensional objects. Proof and logic, as well as investigative strategies in drawing conclusions, are stressed. Properties and relationships of geometric objects include the study of: (1) points, lines, angles and planes; (2) polygons, with a special focus on quadrilaterals, triangles, right triangles; (3) circles; and (4) polyhedra and other solids. Use of graphing calculators and computer drawing programs is encouraged.

·        Recommended Prerequisite: Algebra I

·        Credits: A two credit course

·        Fulfills the Geometry/Integrated Mathematics II requirement for the Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas and counts as a Mathematics Course for the General Diploma

CALCULUS AB, ADVANCED PLACEMENT

 

Calculus AB, Advanced Placementis a course based on content established by the College Board.Calculus ABis primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. The course emphasizes a multirepresentational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations also are important. Topics include: (1) functions, graphs, and limits; (2) derivatives; and (3) integrals. Technology should be used regularly by students and teachers to reinforce the relationships among the multiple representations of functions, to confirm written work, to implement experimentation, and to assist in interpreting results. A comprehensive description of this course can be found on the College Board AP Central Course Description web page at:

http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/repository/ap-calculus-course-description.pdf.

·        Advanced Placement (AP) Courses are intended to be the equivalent to the comparable college level course.

  • Recommended Grade Level: Grades 11 or 12
  • Recommended Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus
  • Credits: A two credit course,1 credit per semester
  • Counts as a Mathematics Course for the General, Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas
