#### MATHEMATICS.

**Subject Area Goals:**

- Scholars will learn to recognize, analyze and describe patterns and relationships in real numbers, algebraic functions, and geometric figures.
- Scholars will strengthen and deepen their number sense and their ability to organize their thoughts and use logic, both inductive and deductive to solve real world problems.
- Scholars must complete at least 4 years of math: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Pre-Calculus.

**Honors Distinction**

- Math honor scholars must take calculus as a 5
^{th}year math and earn an A or B. This class includes a greater study of theory and practical application of mathematics. - Scholars must also read and discuss an approved book that exposes them to the wider world of mathematics rarely seen in classrooms
- Additionally, students must make a math poster to adorn the walls of the school and provide at least 10 hours of unpaid tutoring in math.

##### GENERAL MATH

### 630 ALGEBRA I

Scholars enrolled in this course will learn problem-solving approaches, thinking and algebraic skills necessary for future mathematics courses and other disciplines. It includes a study of real number systems, linear equations, linear inequalities, exponential functions, quadratic equations, and statistics. Scholars must show mastery of Algebra 1 before advancing to Geometry.

** ****Prerequisites: Pre-Algebra.**

##### PRE-ALGEBRA

##### GEOMETRY

### 645 GEOMETRY

This course will review and extend the skills and topics mastered in Algebra 1. It places emphasis on plane geometry and also includes some solid and coordinate geometry. The course provides scholars with the opportunity to improve their understanding of spatial relationships, develop inductive and deductive thinking skills, improve problem solving skills in geometric settings, relate algebra to geometry, and develop a deep understanding of ratio and proportion concepts. A protractor, compass, ruler, and scientific calculator are required. Scholars must show mastery of Geometry before advancing to Algebra II.

**Prerequisites: Algebra I. ****Requirements: Protractor, Ruler, Compass and Scientific Calculator.**

##### ALGEBRA II

### 650 ALGEBRA II

This course will cover topics in advanced Algebra and Geometry. Scholars will further their understanding of linear functions, quadratic equations, matrices, logarithms, rational and radical equations, statistics, and series and sequences. Scholars will discuss and solve real-life applications of the studied topics. Algebra II will help prepare scholars for college math courses and for Pre-Calculus.

**Prerequisites: Algebra I. ****Requirements: Graphing Calculator**

##### COLLEGE MATH

### 650 ALGEBRA II

This course will cover topics in advanced Algebra and Geometry. Scholars will further their understanding of linear functions, quadratic equations, matrices, logarithms, rational and radical equations, statistics, and series and sequences. Scholars will discuss and solve real-life applications of the studied topics. Algebra II will help prepare scholars for college math courses and for Pre-Calculus.

**Prerequisites: Algebra I. ****Requirements: Graphing Calculator**

##### HON. PRE-CALCULUS

### 657 HONORS PRE-CALC

An in-depth review and cross-course integration of all the topics covered in high school mathematics occupy the beginning of this course. Scholars will study polynomial and rational functions, logarithms, matrices, sequences and series, and analytic geometry. This course includes an in-depth study of trigonometric functions, identities, and vectors. The difficulty of Pre-Calculus is similar to that of a college freshman or sophomore math course. Graphing calculator required.

**Prerequisites: Algebra II. Requirements: Graphing Calculator**

##### AP/HON. CALCULUS

### 766 AP/HONORS CALC

Following the College Board’s suggested curriculum designed to parallel college-level calculus courses, AP Calculus AB provides students with an intuitive understanding of the concepts of calculus and experience with its methods and applications. These courses introduce calculus and include the following topics: elementary functions; properties of functions and their graphs; limits and continuity; differential calculus (including definition of the derivative, derivative formulas, theorems about derivatives, geometric applications, optimization problems, and rate-of-change problems); and integral calculus (including antiderivatives and the definite integral).
