Grade 11; 1 Credit - Two Semesters
This core course reinforces the concepts of Algebra I with greater emphasis on applications. In addition, all the remaining topics of high school algebra are covered. Problem solving plays an important part in the mastery of this course. Students are placed by the Placement Committee according to their past performance.
Grade 11; 1 Credit - Two Semesters
This core course reinforces the concepts covered in previous math courses with greater emphasis on applications. In preparation for Calculus, the topics of function analysis, trigonometry, exponential functions and analytic geometry will be studied. Students are placed by the Placement Committee according to their past performance.
Grades 10, 11; 1 Credit - Two Semesters
This honors core course fully prepares students for AP Calculus. It provides a broad overview of the various topics and ideas covered in an introductory course in college mathematics. Enrollment is limited to those students who have shown high aptitude in the Honors Algebra and Geometry courses, have departmental approval, and have approval of the Placement Committee.
Grades 11, 12; 1 Credit - Two Semesters
This college-level core course deals with elementary functions and with differential and integral calculus and their applications. Enrollment is limited to those students who have consistently shown high aptitude in math, have departmental approval, and have approval of the Placement Committee. Because of the amount of material that the course covers, students will be required to attend occasional sessions outside normal school hours.
Grades 11, 12; 1/2 Credit - Fall Semester
This elective course deals with the study of the fundamental concepts of descriptive statistics and probability. Additional topics include curve fitting, sampling and surveys. Use of the TI-83+ calculator allows students to explore real-life data without doing tedious calculations. Students should have a strong mathematics background in order to fully comprehend some of the more sophisticated topics covered. Good writing skills are also required to communicate statistical results intelligibly. Departmental approval is required.
Grades 11, 12; 1/2 Credit - Spring Semester
This elective course is designed to develop a greater understanding and appreciation for the study of statistics. Students will work with probability, data collection, descriptive and inferential statistics, and technological tools to analyze statistics. The course will focus primarily on real world applications in topics such as business, sports, social sciences, and accounting. This course will follow a project based outline in which students will investigate and analyze studies and create complex questions to answer through the study of statistics. Departmental approval is required. Statistics and Probability must be successfully completed in the Fall Semester.
Grades 10, 11, 12; 1 Credit – Two Semesters
This elective course involves the study of four main area: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. According to the College Board, upon entering this course, students are expected to have successfully completed second-year course in algebra and possess sufficient mathematical maturity and quantitative reasoning ability. Students are expected to have a complete working knowledge of graphical and algebraic concepts, including linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions. The AP Statistics course consistently engages students in constructing their own knowledge and includes use of technology, projects, laboratories, cooperative group problem solving, and writing. Students will regularly build interdisciplinary connections with other subjects and with their world outside of school. Departmental approval is required.
