Intermediate Math (JH)
Text: Glencoe Mathematics: Applications and Connections Course 3, Glencoe. McGraw Hill, 2001.
In this class, students will get a chance to review areas of math in which they may have previously struggled. Some of the topics reviewed are: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and integers; solving simple equations; ratios and percents; and geometry. Students will also expand their mathematical knowledge by learning to solve more complex equations, by working with polynomials, by graphing linear functions, and by studying square roots and the Pythagorean Theorem.
(Pre-requisite: “B” or better in Intermediate Math, or “B” or better in 6th grade math)
Text: Glencoe Pre-Algebra: An Integrated Transition to Algebra & Geometry, Glencoe/McGraw Hill 2001.
As an introduction to algebraic functions, this course will have students work with rational numbers, solve equations and inequalities, and understand graphs, least common multiples, order of operations, reciprocals and multiplication rules. They will also explore ratio and percent, scientific notation, surface area and proportions.
(Pre-requisite: “B” or better in Pre-Algebra, or “A” in 6th grade math)
Text: Glencoe Algebra I: Integration, Applications, Connections, Glencoe/McGraw Hill 2001.
This is a beginning course in Algebra based on the standards set by the State of California. At this college prep level math, students will solve systems of equations, work with and apply rational numbers, explore inequalities and polynomials, factor polynomials, graph linear equations, and simplify radical expressions.
(Pre-requisite: “B” or better in Algebra 1)
Text: Glencoe Geometry Integration Applications Connections, Glencoe/ McGraw Hill 2001.
In this class, students will perform basic constructions and will explore perimeter, area and volume of two and three dimensional objects. They will also compare deductive and inductive logical arguments and create geometric proofs. In addition, students will investigate size transformations, the Pythagorean theorem, trigonometric functions, and special triangles.
(Pre-requisite: “C” or better in Geometry; “B” or better for JH)
Text: Glencoe Algebra 2: Integration Applications Connections, Glencoe/ McGraw Hill 2001.
This course expands the basic algebraic concepts involved in solving equations and inequalities, factoring polynomials, graphs, exponents, solving quadratic equations, and solving systems of equations using several methods including matrices. In addition, it examines quadratic, logarithmic, and exponential functions, the application of functions to real world problems, trigonometric functions, and complex numbers.
(Pre-requisite: “C” or better in Algebra 2)
Text: Advanced Mathematical Concepts, Glencoe/McGraw Hill, 2004.
This advanced level will expand on solving systems of equations and inequalities, the nature of graphs, polynomial and rational functions, graphs and inverses of the trigonometric functions, vectors and parametric equations, polar coordinates, exponential and logarithmic functions, and probability and combinatorics.
Calculus AB and BC
(Pre-requisite of “C” or better in Pre-calculus)
Text: Calculus I with Pre-Calculus, Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002.
This course covers the study of mathematical change, limits, and area through derivatives and integrals. Students will integrate these calculus concepts with polynomial, rational, trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential functions and apply them to analysis of graphs and real-world situations.
This course is a support for high school mathematics. It will provide time for independent practice in algebra or geometry. Algebra 1 students will solve systems of equations, work with and apply rational numbers, explore inequalities and polynomials, factor polynomials, graph linear equations, and simplify radical expressions. Geometry students will perform basic constructions, explore perimeter, area and volume of two and three dimensional objects, compare deductive and inductive logical arguments, create geometric proofs, and will investigate size transformations, the Pythagorean theorem, trigonometric functions and special triangles.
