Linear Algebra, Honors (5 periods, 2.5 credits)*Honors Linear Algebra is a one semester elective course offered in the fall. Topics covered include systems of equations, vector spaces, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues, similarity, and diagonlization of matrix. Topics are introduced from both an algorithmic/computational aspect a theoretical/proof aspect. Students will learn basic use of MATLAB and will be expected to research and report on applications of linear algebra.
Discrete Mathematics, Honors (5 periods, 2.5 credits)*Honors Discrete Mathematics is a one semester elective course offered in the spring. Students are introduced to the areas of set theory, logic, number theory, combinatorics, and graph theory. Emphasis is placed on problem solving. Students will be expected to research and report on topics from discrete mathematics, including applications and famous proofs.
AP Statistics (5 periods, 5 credits)
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. Students will be prepared to take the AP Statistics Exam in May.* Students can earn college credits through Middlesex College
