Course Descriptions

Hon Algebra I 1 year/1 credit (no add on incentive)

Pre-Requisite: Successful completion of Honors Pre Algebra and/or teacher recommendation.

This course is designed for the academically gifted and high-performing student.  It is an advanced course in which the student interprets number of operations of arithmetic using symbols, graphing, solving equations, factoring, and using exponents and radicals.  A scientific calculator is required.

 CP Algebra I 1 year/ 1 credit

This is a college preparatory course in which the student interprets number operations of arithmetic using algebraic symbols, graphing, solving equations, factoring, and using exponents and radicals.  A scientific calculator is required.

Tech Algebra I 1 year / 1 credit

This is a course where the student interprets number operations of arithmetic using algebraic symbols, graphing, solving equations, factoring and using exponents and radicals.  This course includes continuous spiral review of math concepts to help the student work toward preparedness for college or a post high school career.

Hon Geometry      1 year / 1 credit

Prerequisite:  Successful completion of Honors Algebra I in 8th grade with a “C” or better OR Algebra I Collegiate in 9th grade with a teacher recommendation.

This course is designed for the academically gifted and high-performing student.  It is an advanced course covering the relationship among elements of space: points, lines and planes.  Concepts are learned through intuition and inductive/deductive reasoning.  There is a strong emphasis on proof and the development of geometry as an axiomatic system.

A scientific calculator is required or a graphing calculator is recommended.

CP Algebra III  1 year / 1 credit Pre-requisite: 12th grade status and successful completion of Alg II or Pre-Calculus.
This course is designed to help prepare the college-bound senior for college level mathematics. Emphasis will be on functions, graphs and trigonometry with a statistical base. A graphing calculator is recommended.

Tech Quantitative Reasoning 1 year/1 credit
This course is a further application of the Common Core State Standards. Real world applications will be applied. The course will stress advanced quantitive reasoning topics such as statistics and financial applications. It will use algebra, geometry and discrete mathematics to solve problems.

Hon Pre-Calculus       1 year / 1 credit
Pre-requisite: Successful completion of Honors Algebra II with a “C” or better and/or teacher recommendation.
This course is designed for the academically gifted and high- performing student. It is an advanced course covering the trigonometric functions and their applications, logarithms, radian measure, conic sections and their graphs, analytic
proofs of geometric concepts, and sequences and series. A graphing calculator is required.

CP Pre-Calculus            1 year / 1 credit
Pre-requisite: Completion of Algebra II with a “C” or better.
This is a high-level math course covering the use of trigonometric functions in relation to vectors and complex numbers, angles in degrees and radian measures, logarithms, graphing, algebraic and analytic proofs, conics, and polar coordinates. A strong background in Algebra II is needed. A graphing calculator is required.

AP Calculus AB 1 year / 1 credit
Pre-requisite: Successful completion of Pre-Calculus Honors with a “B” or better.
This course is designed for the academically gifted and high- performing student. It is a rigorous course for students with the desire to pursue higher mathematics and other science related fields.
