Additional Mathematics Courses
The study of axiomatic systems; lines, segments and angles; triangles; other polygons; circles; solid geometry; and measurement.
Math Independent Study
Prerequisite: Algebra II
This course will concentrate on the following concepts: the three major trigonometry functions, statistics, probability, functions, logic and data analysis. This course will provide a 4th year of math alternative to pre-calculus for students who experience limited success in Algebra II.
Prerequisites: Algebra I
This course is the study of problem solving and decision making related to earning, spending, borrowing, and investing money. Topics are addressed at an advanced level and include mathematical topics such as mathematical modeling, linear programming, ratio and proportion, systems of equations and inequalities, probability and statistics, and geometric progressions. Computer graphing techniques and spreadsheets are used.
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus or concurrently enrolled in Pre-Calculus
Statistics AP is built around four main topics: exploring data, planning a study, understanding probability theory, and acquiring critical inferential reasoning skills. Students will actively participate in both short and long-term "hands-on" projects. TI-83 calculators and various computer programs will be used on a regular basis. This course prepares the student to take the Advanced Placement exam.
Advanced Quantitative Reasoning
Prerequisite: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2
Advanced Quantitative Reasoning builds on and extends what students have learned and covers other mathematical topics not typically taught in high school. The course reinforces needed skills as students study new topics in relevant, engaging contexts. This course also helps students develop college and career skills such as collaboration, conducting research, and making presentations.
