### Algebra

#### Algebra I

This course is an introduction to sets, number systems and their properties, algebraic operations, functions, graphing, formal mathematical structures, and elementary applications.

#### Algebra II

The course covers a review of sets, number systems, graphing, algebraic operations and linear functions. Students will use statistics and modeling to learn the properties of quadratic, polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions as well as trigonometric functions and introduction to analytic geometry. A calculator is required and functions will be analyzed from numerical, graphical and analytical points of view.

### Geometry

#### Geometry

Students will be introduced to formal logic and proof, spatial properties and relationships in two and three dimensions. Students will learn by explanation and will learn to make and test conjectures. All students will learn to operate the computer to facilitate their learning.

#### Geometry Honors

### Precalculus

#### Precalculus

Students will focus on algebraic functions of all types (polynomial and rational, and especially trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic and other inverses). Solving equations, including parametric equations, equations in polar coordinates and systems of equations will be thoroughly covered. The approach will be graphic, with daily use of the graphing calculator to assist in problem solving, modeling, exploring and visualizing the mathematics. The college prep course will cover all the material necessary for success in Calculus. The honors course will begin with topics from discrete mathematics and statistics and will cover all the material more rapidly and intensively.

### College Algebra & Trigonometry

#### College Algebra and Trigonometry

This course is similar to Precalculus, yet focuses more on the Algebra concepts. The student will explore many new topics as well as extend those that have been studied in previous courses. The goal of this course is to help students gain a clear, interesting, and relevant understanding of the use of Algebra as well as develop an understanding of trigonometry. Many real-world applications of the topics will be studied.

### Discrete Mathematics

#### Discrete Mathematics

Students in this course will apply the concepts and methods of mathematics to model and explore a variety of practical situations.Discrete topics include: graph theory, matrix models, planning and scheduling, map coloring, social decision making, and probability. Students will also study descriptive and inferential statistics. The prerequisite for this course is Algebra II. This course is designed for students who will undertake higher level math in college that may not include Calculus.

### Calculus

#### Calculus I

This course is similar to AP Calculus AB but will proceed through the material more slowly. Students will cover only the basics of differentiation and integration.

#### AP Calculus AB

This is a college level treatment of differential and integral Calculus and analytic geometry. It is designed for highly motivated students of proven ability in mathematics. The permission of the Department Chair is required to enroll in this course. The material is approached from graphical, numerical and analytical points of view. A graphing calculator is required. Students are expected to take the Calculus AB Advanced Placement Examination.

#### AP Calculus BC

This course is a continuation and enhancement of Calculus I. The course covers all of the topics of BC Advanced Placement Calculus not previously covered in Calculus I, including sequences, series, polar and parametric equations and advanced techniques of integration. Students are expected to take the Calculus BC Advanced Placement Examination.

### AP Statistics

#### Advanced Placement Statistics

This is a college level treatment of statistics designed to lead to Advanced Placement credit. The students will learn to collect and analyze data, design studies and interpret results. Individual and group projects will be required. The Math Department recommends that AP Statistics be taken in addition to, not instead of, an Algebra-based Math course.

### Engineering

#### Introduction to Engineering

The course will allow students to learn introductory concepts, methods and principles of engineering practice. The course will focus on using an engineering perspective to view and solve a problem with an integrated approach. Students will be required to design, plan, and communicate, while solving problems and considering the ethics and professionalism that would be required.
