This rigorous course explores four main topics in Algebra: solving one and two variable equations, using and interpreting linear functions, factoring
and quadratics, and exponentials and polynomials. Specifically, this course investigates the topics of linear and quadratic functions and their graphs,
factoring and solving polynomial equations, solving systems of equations, as well as inductive and deductive reasoning. Real-world applications that
can be modeled by linear and quadratic functions will be covered. In depth word problems will be addressed that require students to demonstrate an
understanding of the concepts covered. Students will explore algebraic functions and concepts through the use of graphing calculators and other graphing
software.

This is a college preparatory course for freshmen with the aim of developing well prepared, confident problem solvers. Starting with the basic algebraic
premise of solving for “unknowns,” students will also explore rational and irrational numbers, functions, linear equations as well as patterns and
sequences. All Algebra I students will be introduced to and required to manipulate monomial and polynomial expressions, including quadratic equations
and functions. Students will engage in in-depth problem solving, aimed at developing critical thinking skills needed to succeed in the 21^{st} century. Students will explore algebraic functions and concepts through the use of graphing calculators and other graphing software.

This is the first part of a two year fundamental algebra course designed for incoming freshmen who benefit from small class sizes offering individualized instruction. This class works to develop a strong foundation of mathematical skills by reviewing many of the concepts of 8^{th} grade math. The course will cover basic computational skills, fundamental mathematical skills, rational numbers, the solving and graphing of linear equations, proportional reasoning and applying algebraic properties. The class is designed to challenge students with a modified course while providing individual and collaborative support to allow students to be successful. Students will be given extensive support as they work to write equations and solve basic real-world problems.
This course completes the objectives of basic algebraic principles for sophomore students. This class will continue to provide individualized support while challenging students to make connections from previous concepts to the new topics of inequalities, solving systems of equations, operations of polynomials, factoring, solving and graphing quadratic equations, and radical expressions. After completion the students will have a comprehensive background of Algebra I.
Honors Algebra II continues and broadens the exploration of Algebra I. Incorporating the latest in graphic calculator technology and using high level problem
solving techniques, students will explore rational, irrational and complex numbers. Specifically, this course will develop an understanding of functions
as they relate to linear relations, quadratic and exponential equations, logarithms, and matrices.

Students will study geometry as a mathematical system through the deductive development of relationships in the plane and in space. Topics covered in this
course include congruence and similarity of polygons, properties of parallel and perpendicular lines, angle measures, transformations, geometric constructions,
circles, and volume and area. Logic is a driving force behind all that is studied in this course as students learn to explore various concepts through
geometric proof. The resources used to accomplish the objectives of the course include protractor, compass, graphing calculator, and other computer
programs that demonstrate the components of geometry.

Students will use geometry with algebra to find distances, angle measures, areas, and volumes. They will use theorems and postulates for parallel and perpendicular lines as they apply to polygons and circles. Students will also problem solve using the Pythagorean Theorem and basic right triangle trigonometry.
This Pre-Calculus course is designed to prepare students for AP^{®} Calculus, AP^{®} Statistics, or college level math courses. The course
examines advanced mathematical concepts graphically, numerically, algebraically, and geometrically. Topics covered in detail include early and transcendental
functions, analytic geometry and plane figures, alternate coordinate systems, probability and counting, statistical reasoning, and an introduction
to limits, continuity and beginning Calculus concepts.

The AP^{®} Statistics course is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics. The course introduces
students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes in the AP^{®} Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations,
problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding.

This course is aimed at those students interested in pursuing a career in business. Beginning with an introduction of simple and compound probability,
this course will explore and expand the students’ understanding of statistical data and analysis. Students will analyze strategies and, using probability
concepts, will interpret, manipulate and create relevant statistical data in the exploration of means and standard deviations. Students will use calculators,
spreadsheets and tables to estimate areas under the normal distribution curve and apply these techniques within a business model.

This course investigates topics in differential and integral calculus, including limits and continuity, differential calculus, and definite and indefinite
integration. Emphasis will be placed on transcendental functions and techniques of integration. Students will also study the concepts of calculus analytically,
numerically, graphically, and conceptually. Technology will be integrated into the course through the use of graphing calculators and dynamic graphing
programs. Connections and applications to various disciplines, especially physics and economics, are investigated at length.

AP^{®} Calculus BC is a course in single-variable calculus that includes all the topics of Calculus AB (techniques and applications of the derivative, techniques and applications of the definite integral, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus) plus additional topics in differential and integral calculus (including parametric, polar, and vector functions) and series. It is equivalent to at least a year of calculus at most colleges and universities. Algebraic, numerical, and graphical representations are emphasized throughout the course.(Graphing calculator required)
This course is designed to prepare students for the Computer Science A AP^{®} Test administered by the College Board in May each year. The host language for the class is Java. It is open to juniors and seniors who have completed Algebra II, have demonstrated math and writing skills adequate for the course, and have the teacher’s recommendation.
