Math
To satisfy graduation requirements, each student must earn four credits of Math and attempt a new math each year: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and one more math above Algebra 1
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT SELECTING A MATH COURSE:

Any 9th grade student who took Algebra 1 in middle school may start in Geometry or Geometry Honors.

All other 9th grade students will be enrolled in either Algebra 1A in the fall and Algebra 1B in the spring or in Honors Algebra for a semester.

Any 9th grade student who has a goal of taking AP Calculus AB or BC must take Geometry and Algebra 2 by their sophomore year (for Calculus BC the student needs to be in the honors sequence of courses).

Any student who takes regular Algebra 2 and wishes to take Honors Precalculus 1 and AP Precalculus + must have a teacher recommendation from their Algebra 2 teacher in order to take the honors/+ course rather than the regular course.

AP Calculus AB can be taken after completing Precalculus 1 with a grade of A or B with a recommendation of also taking AP Precalculus.

AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC are two distinct courses, both of which are yearlong.

 Grade: 1112
 Prerequisite: Algebra 2
Applications and modeling using mathematics are the primary foci of this course. Throughout the course, students explore mathematical content in the context of applications to the realworld. Topics will build upon previous knowledge requiring students to reason, solve, and represent mathematical concepts in multiple ways to encourage the use of math to answer problems students will encounter in life. This course is best intended for students who are planning to attend a College of Applied Technology, military service, or enter the workforce immediately following graduation.
PRECALCULUS I
 One Semester
 1 credit
 EOC: NO
 Grade 1112
 Prerequisite: Algebra 2 with recommended grade of C or better or teacher recommendation
This course will begin building on the concepts of functions that were introduced in Algebra 2, including absolute value, greatest integer, polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. In addition, students will begin their study of trigonometry including the Unit Circle, the graphs of the trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, basic trigonometric identities and application of these identities to solve equations and inequalities, and triangle trigonometry.
PRECALCULUS I HONORS
 One Semester
 1 credit
 EOC: NO
 Grade 1112
 Prerequisite: Algebra 2 Honors with minimum grade of B or teacher recommendation
This course has similar content as PreCalculus I, but with more emphasis on the development of concepts. The pace at which students are expected to learn new concepts is higher than that of Precalculus 1.

 EPSO
 EOC: NO
 Grade 912
 Prerequisite: Algebra 1; counts as third lab science or meets computer science or fourth math requirement if taken senior year
AP Computer Science Principles is an introductory collegelevel computing course that introduces students to the breadth of the field of computer science. Students learn to design and evaluate solutions and to apply computer science to solve problems through the development of algorithms and programs. They incorporate abstraction into programs and use data to discover new knowledge. Students also explain how computing innovations and computing systems—including the internet—work, explore their potential impacts, and contribute to a computing culture that is collaborative and ethical.

AP Precalculus is a continuation of the curriculum covered in Precalculus 1. The class will focus on maintaining and further developing the ideas taught previously while simultaneously introducing new topics. These topics will include Polar Functions, Parametric Functions, Vectors, Matrices, and Sequences and Series. An introduction of early Calculus topics such as Limits and Derivatives will be explored if time permits. Students will develop AP level problem solving skills and writing throughout the course.
