Math Dept Courses

INTEGRATED MATH 1-P

 (1 year)         Prerequisite: None                      

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.  Students will problem solve using equations, graphs and tables and investigate linear relationships including comparing and contrasting options and decision-making using algebraic models.  Students will be introduced to exponential models with regards to sequences. Reinforcement of topics from two-dimensional geometry is integrated into this curriculum.  This includes applications of area and perimeter, the Pythagorean Theorem and geometric proportion.

 

INTEGRATED MATH 2-P     

(1 year) 9th – 12th grade    Prerequisite: Integrated Math 1-2P, with a grade of “C-” or better 

Integrated Math 2  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 be introduced to probability models.  Students will problem solve using equations, graphs and tables and investigate quadratic relationships, including the use of the Quadratic Formula and factoring.  Two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometry is a major focus of this course, including similarity, congruency, trigonometric ratios, surface area and volume.  

 

INTEGRATED MATH 3–P

(1 year) 10th – 12th grade Prerequisite: Integrated Math 2-2P with a grade of “C-” or better

Students will explore algebra and geometry topics presented as problem based learning. They will also look at appropriate tools to solve problems. Mathematically, students begin with exploring functions (quadratic, cubic, exponential, hyperbolic, logarithmic) graphically and algebraically. Then, they will solve equations of various methods (graphically, systems, and inequalities) along with probability and statistics. Students will also be introduced to rational functions and higher order polynomial equations.   Law of Sines is introduced to start preparing for Pre-Calculus.

 

PRE-CALCULUS-P 

(1 year) 10th – 12th grade    Prerequisite: Grade of “C-” or better in IM-3

The course includes  a short review of a variety of functions and their graphs. Students will be introduced to the unit circle as well as the six trigonometric functions.  Other topics include vectors, law of sines, and law of cosines. Students will expand their knowledge of exponential and logarithmic functions and will explore geometric topics like conics and parabolas.  The course also  includes a preview of calculus, introducing such concepts as limits, continuity, and the derivative.

 

PRE-CALCULUS- HP 

(1 year) 10th – 12th grade     Prerequisite: Grade of “B” or better in IM-3 (both semesters) or by Department approval

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

CALCULUS – P

(1 year) 11th-12th grade Prerequisite:  Grade of “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, learn how “to do” the concept, and apply the concept in the real world or mathematical world.

 

AP CALCULUS AB

(1 year) 11th – 12th grade Prerequisite:  Grade  of “A” or “B” in Pre-Calculus-HP or “A” in 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.

STATISTICS-P

 (1 year) 11th – 12th grade     Prerequisite: Grade of “C-” or better in IM3-P

Two major areas of statistics are covered:  (l) Descriptive statistics involving collecting data, tabulating, and analyzing the results, and (2) Inferential statistics  involving drawing conclusions and making decisions or predictions about a population on the basis of a sample. This course also includes probability topics. 

 

AP STATISTICS

(1 year) 11th-- 12th grade Prerequisite:  Grade of “C-” or better in IM3-P

AP Statistics is an introductory college-level statistics course that introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students will learn  the uses of statistics in everyday life and how different professions employ statistics in their work.  This course is designed to prepare students for the AP test in statistics.

 

BUSINESS MATH

(1 year) 11th – 12th grade Prerequisite:  Grade of “D-” or better in IM1-P or concurrently enrolled in IM1-P

Business Math fulfills one year of the graduation requirements in mathematics and also meets the requirements for a CTE pathway.  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 and career-technical problems. Calculators and/or computers are used for some problem solving activities.
