Mathematics

Algebra II

This course is based on the Mathematics Contents Standards for Public Schools. The course objective is to emphasize critical thinking and problem solving through frequent application of the more advanced algebraic skills. Topics include functions, variations and graphs, linear functions, matrices, systems, quadratic functions, powers, inverses and radicals, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, polynomials, quadratic relations, introduction to conic sections, and rational expressions and equations.

Algebra I

This class continues learning of math concepts from 6th & 7th grade and focuses on the in depth study of algebra. The course objectives include: (1) to continue practice with arithmetic skills (2) to establish fundamental principles of algebra (3) to apply algebra skills to problem solving strategies Topics included are algebraic operations, rules of exponents, solving & graphing linear equations, inequalities and quadratics, solving systems of equations, parallel and perpendicular lines, functions and relations, and application problems.  

Precalculus

This course is specifically designed for students who successfully completed Algebra 2 and are highly motivated. We will cover trigonometry, logarithms, polar coordinates and vectors, characteristics of graphs of functions, use of radian and degree measure, analytical geometry (including conic sections), upper-level algebraic concepts, the concept of a limit, and an introduction to calculus.

Geometry

This course is based on the Mathematics Contents Standards for Public Schools. The course objectives include: (1) to apply and reinforce algebra skills (2) to establish fundamental geometric relationships with a variety of figures (3) to apply logic and the concept of proof to understanding geometric relationships and theorems (4) to apply geometric skills to problem solving strategies.

AP Calculus A/B

Beginning with a thorough review of mathematical concepts and skills required for calculus, this course covers trigonometry, analytical geometry, limits, continuity, the derivative, differentiability, and other topics covered in both differential and integral calculus. Including numerous applications to physics, chemistry, engineering, and business, this course is designed to enable students to apply concepts as well as furthering their knowledge of the subject to the extent that they will be able to move into a higher level math course in university.
