MATH DEPARTMENT COURSES

INTEGRATED MATH 1-P

(1 year) 9th - 12th                 Prerequisite: Teacher recommendation, previous course grades and/or test scores.

Integrated Math 1 topics include recognizing and developing patterns using tables, graphs and equations. Mathematical modeling is stressed
as a methodology for approaching the solution to problems. Students will explore operations on algebraic expressions and apply
mathematical properties to algebraic equations. Student will problem solve using equations, graphs and tables and investigate linear
relationships including comparing and contrasting options and decision-making using algebraic models. Reinforcement of topics from two dimensional
geometry is integrated into this curriculum. This includes applications from the areas of area and perimeter, the Pythagorean Theorem and its applications as well as geometric proportion. Finally, introductory instruction in the area of mathematical probability is provided to reinforce use of fractions and numerical modeling. Technology will be used to introduce and expand upon the areas of study listed above.

INTEGRATED MATH 2-P
(1 yr) 9th – 12th grade             Prerequisite: Integrated Math 1-P, with a grade of “C” or better and/or Math Department approval

Integrated Math 2 is the second of an integrated and investigative mathematics program designed to use patterns, modeling, and conjectures
to build student understanding and competency in mathematics. The students will be expected to learn through collaboration, collection of
data, experimentation, and conjectures. Technology tools will also play an important role in learning. By using technology to collect and
model data, students will be able to make conjectures about the data and develop a robust understanding of the mathematical principles
involved. The students will learn mathematical sense making, make and test conjectures and justify conclusions, use mathematical models to
represent real-world data, be able to provide clear and concise answers, and have computational and symbolic fluency.

ALGEBRA II-P
(1 yr) 10th – 12th grade            Prerequisite: Algebra I-P and Geometry-P (“C” or better in both)

This course is an in-depth study of the topics listed in Algebra I-P, and an introduction to the theory of functions, probability, sequences,
series, complex numbers, matrices, properties of conic sections, and exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Critical thinking
and problem solving skills will be emphasized.

AP STATISTICS
(1 yr) 11th-- 12th grade             Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus P or HP or recommendation of teacher

This course is primarily designed to prepare students for the AP test in statistics. Because many college majors require the use of statistics
and/or a strong understanding of statistical data, this course’s secondary purpose is to provide students with the tools necessary for success at
the college level. The last purpose is to expose students to the uses of statistics in every day life and how different professions employ
statistics in their work.

PRE-CALCULUS-P

(1 year) 10th - 12th                    Prerequisite: "C" or better in Algebra II-P or Integrated Math 3-P

This course begins with a short review of functions and their graphs. After polynomial and rational functions, the six trigonometric functions are examined. Such details include unit circle, graphs, inverses, identities, the law of sines, and the law of cosines. The second semester begins with a closer look at exponential and logarithmic functions before exploring geometric topics like conics and parabolas. After systems of equations and inequalities, the course concludes with a preview of calculus, introducing such concepts as limits, continuity, and the derivative. 

PRE-CALCULUS-HP

(1 year)                                      Prerequisite: "B" or better in Algebra II-P or Integrated Math 3-P

The course begins with a review of prerequisites from Algebra and Geometry. Then the course begins an extensive study of functions and graphs; polynomial, power, and rational functions; exponential, logistic, and logarithmic functions; trigonometric functions; analytic trigonometry; applications of trigonometry; systems and matrices; analytic geometry in two and three dimensions; discrete mathematics; and finally an introduction to Calculus: limits, derivatives, and integrals. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared to take Advanced Placement Calculus or calculus in college.

CALCULUS-P

(1 year)                                     Prerequisite: "C" or better in Pre-Calculus-P or Pre-Calculus-HP

This course is designed to study the four concepts of calculus: limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and indefinite integrals. For each concept, students learn its precise definition, gain an intuitive understanding of what it means to learn how "to do" the concept, and apply the concept in the real world or the mathematical realm. 


AP CALCULUS AB
(1 yr) 11th – 12th grade               Prerequisite: "B" or better in Pre-Calculus-HP or Pre-Calculus-P

AP Calculus AB is designed to be the high school equivalent of the "calculus for math and/or science majors" at the college or university
level. Students will take the AP Exam or an equivalent exam as part of their final course grade.

BUSINESS MATH
(1 yr) 11th – 12th grade                Prerequisite: None

Business Math fulfills one year of the graduation requirements in mathematics. This course reviews and fosters improvement of basic
computational skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) involving whole numbers, decimals, percentages, and fractions.
Students apply these skills to practical business problems. Calculators and/or computers are used for some problem solving activities. This
course is recommended for students preparing to major in business in college as well as for vocational preparation.
