• Geometry, Honors (5 periods, 5 credits)

    Prerequisite: Algebra I

    Honors Geometry is an accelerated course that covers more topics in depth than a typical geometry course. This course requires excellent algebra skills and develops an understanding of the meaning and nature of mathematical proof. Other topics include similarity, circles, area, volume, coordinate geometry and an introduction to trigonometric functions and their applications to right triangles.

     
    Algebra II, Honors (5 periods, 5 credits)
     
    Prerequisite: Geometry, Honors

    This course will teach algebraic methods and graphing techniques with a special emphasis on problem solving. It is a course for students with superior mathematical skills.

    Precalculus, Honors, (5 periods, 5 credits)

    Prerequisite: Algebra II, Honors

    This course covers a wide array of topics used in calculus, including exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, polar, and parametric equations.  Students will be prepared to take the Math Level 2 SAT subject test in June. 

    AP Calculus AB (5 periods, 5 credits)

    Prerequisite: Precalculus, Honors

    This course covers functions, limits, continuity, the differential and integral calculus of algebraic, trigonometric, and other transcendental functions. Topics will include some applications such as related rates, maximum-minimum problems, areas, and volumes. Students will use graphing calculators as an integral part of the instruction.  Students will be prepared to take the AP Calculus AB exam in May.

    or 

    AP Calculus BC (5 periods, 5 credits)

    Prerequisite: Precalculus, Honors
     
    This course offers a comprehensive study of all of the objectives outlined in the AP Calculus AB/BC Course Description.  Topics will include functions and limits, derivatives and their applications, integrals and their applications, differential equations and slope fields,  sequences, series, polynomial approximation, and analysis of curves given in polar, parametric and vector form. Students will use graphing calculators as an integral part of the instruction.  Students will be prepared to take the AP Calculus BC exam in May.
