Accelerated Math 7

Course Number: 

MTH121

This course prepares 7th grade students to enter Algebra 1 as 8th graders. Math 7 Accelerated covers the math content in both 7th grade and 8th grade, with an emphasis on the 8th grade material. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course. There will be nightly homework (approximately 30 minutes), major assessments (tests, projects, quizzes) every three weeks, and a final exam at the end of the year.

Algebra

Course Number: 

MTH109

In Algebra, students continue to build their understanding of the four representations of linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, data modeling, and manipulating algebraic expressions. They also develop proficiency with rational numbers and exponents. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course. There will be nightly homework (30-45 minutes), major assessments (tests, projects, quizzes) every three weeks, and a final exam at the end of the year.

Algebra II

Course Number: 

MTH111

Algebra 2 applies and extends what students have learned in previous courses by focusing on: finding connections between multiple representations of functions, transformations of different function families, finding zeros of polynomials and connecting them to graphs and equations of polynomials, modeling periodic phenomena with trigonometry, and understanding the role of randomness and the normal distribution in making statistical conclusions. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course. Students should expect daily homework assignments (about an hour per), and tests approximately every three weeks.

Applied Mathematics

Course Number: 

MTH125

This course is intended for seniors who do not plan to go into math related fields. It will focus on topics within Financial Math and Statistics that are particularly relevant to life in the real world. In the first semester, the class will focus on personal finance. In the second half, it will focus on how statistics can be used to understand data that is all around us.

Geometry

Course Number: 

MTH110

In Geometry, students prove and apply geometric theorems about lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, and three-dimensional solids. They also explore patterns and consistencies in the transformation of figures on the Cartesian plane. Finally, students develop models to investigate independent and conditional probabilities. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the course. There will be nightly homework (30-45 minutes), major assessments (tests, projects, quizzes) every three weeks, and a final exam at the end of the year.

Honors AB Calculus

Course Number: 

MTH126

This is a course in single-variable calculus that includes techniques and applications of the derivative, techniques and applications of the definite integral, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. It is equivalent to at least a semester of calculus at most colleges and universities. Algebraic, numerical, and graphical representations are emphasized throughout the course. Students will have enough exposure to Calculus to take the AP Calc AB exam. Students will receive nightly homework, quizzes every few weeks and major assessments each unit.

Pre-Calculus

Course Number: 

MTH103

Pre-calculus is primarily a survey of the families of functions that mathematics utilizes in trying to solve problems and make sense of the world. We examine how these functions behave, how we can manipulate them, and how we can use them to model the real world in order to derive meaningful and useful information. The course embeds the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice as an integral part of the lessons in the course. Students should expect daily homework assignments (about an hour per), and tests approximately every three weeks.

Statistics

Course Number: 

MTH115

Statistics is the science of learning from data, and of measuring, controlling, and communicating uncertainty. Statisticians apply statistical thinking and methods to a wide variety of scientific, social, and business endeavors. Students in this course will use data to solve problems in a wide variety of fields and apply mathematical and statistical knowledge to social, economic, medical, political, and ecological problems.
