# Math

## ALGEBRA EXTENDED I and II

This two-year course is designed to strengthen students’ basic math skills in preparation for the Algebra Regents exam, which is a graduation requirement. Students will be introduced to concepts including operations with fractions, decimals and integers, probability and statistics, basic geometry, inequalities, and graphing linear equations, as well as all course material from the standard Algebra course.

## ALGEBRA

This course is designed to teach the Common Core Algebra standards that align with topics such as foundations for algebra, solving equations, solving inequalities, introduction to functions, linear functions, systems of equations and inequalities, exponents and exponential functions, polynomials and factoring, quadratic functions and equations, radical expressions and equations, rational expressions and functions, and data analysis and probability. These topics will prepare students for a Regents examination in June.

This course culminates in a Regents Exam.

## GEOMETRY

(Prerequisite: Algebra)

This course is designed to teach the Common Core Geometry standards, with an emphasis on the meaning of geometry and the application of mathematics in a technological world. Topics include constructions, congruent and similar figures, transformational geometry (both with and without coordinates), basic trigonometry, linear systems, circles, and geometric and coordinate proofs.

This course culminates in a Regents Exam.

## APPLIED GEOMETRY

(Prerequisite: Algebra or Algebra Extended I&II)

Topics include basic geometry, coordinate geometry, linear and quadratic systems, locus, transformational geometry, probability, statistics, algebraic Fractions, and mathematical systems.

## ALGEBRA II

(Prerequisite: Geometry)

This course is designed to teach the Common Core Algebra II standards. It will focus on functions as the cornerstones of algebra, linear functions, equations and their algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions, sequences and series, quadratic functions, transformations of functions, radicals and the quadratic formula, complex numbers, polynomial and rational functions, the circular functions, probability, and statistics.

This course culminates in a Regents Exam.

## PRE-CALCULUS

(Prerequisite: Algebra II)

A more in-depth study of several topics introduced in trigonometry. Topics include polynomial functions and their graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions including introduction of the natural base, e, and natural logarithms, trigonometry, analytic geometry, matrices, limits, analytic geometry, and differentiation. Emphasis will be placed on several topics that are used extensively in calculus. Juniors and seniors who demonstrate strong math skills may be permitted to concurrently enroll in Algebra II.

This course is eligible for College Now credit.

## CALCULUS

(Prerequisite: Pre-calculus)

This course will give you a leg up on the incoming college freshman class. Calculus is an essential mathematical discipline for the sciences, engineering, computer studies and a host of other fields. You will learn about the Cartesian plane, limits and the continuity of functions, definitions of derivative, formulas for differentiation of algebraic functions and integral and integration techniques.

This course is eligible for College Now credit.

## STATISTICS

(Prerequisite: Algebra II)

Every day we are confronted with statistical terms in sporting events, news programs, textbooks, the Internet, newspapers and on the radio. This course is suitable for students who are interested in a wide variety of subjects. Whether you want to go on into advertising, business, science, teaching, sports or psychology, you will need to know the tools of statistics. You will learn about the organization of data, measures of central tendency, probability theory, distributions, hypothesis testing, and regression and correlation.

This course is eligible for College Now credit.

## FINANCIAL MATH

Mathematics as applied to financial operations.  Topics include recordkeeping, interest and discount, credit and payments, loans, checking and savings, insurance, taxes, financial analysis, investments, and business operations.  An integral part of this course includes real-world applications which answers the age-old question of “When am I ever going to use this?”

This course is for students in grades 11 & 12.

## MATH MATTERS

We all use math in everyday applications whether we’re aware of it or not. If you look hard enough, you’ll see math emerge from some of the most unlikely places. Students will use math applications to tackle life’s challenges through project-based learning.

This course is for students in grades 11 & 12.
