This course introduces students to the study of math, which focuses on the use of variables. Topic covered include
properties of real numbers; solving and graphing linear equations and linear inequalities; solving systems of linear
equations and linear inequalities; exponents and exponential functions; quadratic dquations and fuctions;
ploynomials and factoring; and rational equations and functions. Upon completion of this course students should
have a strong foundation in problem solving techniques that they will continue to expand upon in future math and
Students will study the concepts of parallelism, perpendicularity, congruence and similarity, and apply these
concepts in the solution of problems; students will gain an understanding of deductive reasoning and proving
theorems; they will study circular regions and polygonal regions with constructions and measurements.
This course is an explansion of Algebra I, which is intended to give students a stronger foundation in algebra for
college. Topics covered include: equations and inequalities; linear equations and functions; systems of linear
equations and inequalities; matrices and determinants; quadratic functions; polynomials and polynomial
functions; exponential and logarithmic functions; sequences and series; probability and statistics; and an
introduction to trigonometry.
The objectives of this course are to establish and develop both a conceptual and working understanding of
trigonometry, complex numbers, exponential and logarithmic functions, probability, statistics, and sequences and
to attain proficiency in more advanced techniques of algebra. This will involve an initial review of linear relations
and functions, system of linear equations and inequalities, and polynomial and rational functions. The course will
involve the refinement of problem-solving skills and the ability to apply these skills to real-data problems. It will
use different learning styles and focus on individual needs to develop improved critical thinking and a more
advanced conceptual understanding of mathematics.
This course is designed for students intending to take a course in calculus or more advances courses in
mathematics and will focus on those concepts, methods and technological techniques necessary for a functional
understanding of these subjects. It assumes proficiency in certain concepts and techniques in mathematics, but will
involve a brief review of some topics, including polynomial and rational functions, systems of equations and
inequalities, matrices, complex numbers, and exponential and logarithmic functions. The course begins with the
study of trigonometric functions and their inverses, graphing, trigonometric identities, conditional equations, and
solutions of trigonometric equations. It will also involve the study of probability, statistics, and sequences and
series. The concepts and practical consequences of transformations of functions, parametric equations and polar
coordinates will be followed by those limits, continuity, and estimation of the slope of a curve. The course
concludes with the definition, basic techniques, and applications of differentiation.
The objective of this course is to estabish a firm foundation in calculus from developing a real understanding of
algebraic, graphical, and numeric perspectives. A preliminary review of polynomial, rational, inverse, trigonometric,
and inverse trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions will be followed by practicing the most relevant
and important techniques of a graphing calculator. The concepts of tranformations of functions, parametric
equations and polar coordinates will be followed by the introduction to the concepts of limits, continuity, and
estimating the slope of a curve. Differentiation and applications of differentiation, integration and applications of
the definite integral, differential equations, infinite series, vectors and functions of several variables will constitute
the main part of the course. These specific techniques and concepts will be used throughout the course for problem
solving in the specific areas of biology, chemistry, economics, engineering, physiology, physics, and sports.
Students will be given the opportunity to engage in activities designed to strengthen their roles of future consumers
and/or entrepreneurs. Topics include banking, personal financial planning (including budgeting), buying a home,
tax preparation, investing and insurance. Case studies will be used to help students develop decision-making skills
related to money management.
