General
Math
Our math program
is designed to give students a rigorous foundation in
elementary mathematics which focuses on arithmetic and
the number operations. Students investigate numbers and
number sense, operations with numbers, decimals, geometry,
and data analysis and probability. Common factors, prime
and composite numbers, two digit multipliers and divisors,
improper fractions and mixed numbers, quotients and remainders,
ratios and percents, geometrical figures, the coordinate
plane, symmetry, and transformations are some of the topics
studied. Unit reviews and regular assessments serve as
a guide to review and complete mastery of concepts. Emphasis
is placed on word problems where students learn the importance
of organizing and interpreting data, reasoning logically,
heightening their sense of visual order, and internalizing
mathematical habits of mind.
PreAlgebra
This course is
designed for students who need review in the fundamentals
of arithmetic while basic abstractions of beginning algebra
are introduced. It focuses on real numbers and linear
equations, linear inequalities, factoring, fractions,
word problems, graphing and some elements of geometry
are stressed.
Algebra I
Designed to prepare
students for Algebra II, Algebra I begins with a review
of prealgebra concepts. Students learn fundamental concepts
such as integers; linear equations; how to add, subtract,
multiply and divide monomials and polynomials; factoring
of polynomials and solving of quadratic equations. This
course also includes radicals and exponents.
Algebra II
This course focuses
on the study of math concepts including linear and quadratic
equations, inequalities, relations, functions, radicals,
imaginary and complex numbers. Emphasis is placed upon
development of math skills through the study of exponential
and logarithmic functions, probability, statistics and
elements of trigonometry.
Geometry
This course includes
topics such as parallel line and planes, congruent triangles,
inequalities and quadrilaterals. Geometric proofs are
included throughout to improve the student's understanding
and logical thought processes. Emphasis is placed upon
reasoning and problem solving skills gained through study
of similarity, areas, volumes, circles, and coordinate
geometry.
PreCalculus
and Trigonometry
This course is
both a review of algebra courses you may have completed
and the introduction and practice of new concepts designed
to prepare you for calculus. The course offers extensive
emphasis on advanced algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry,
vector algebra, limits and polynomial and transcendental
functions.
Calculus
Calculus is a college
prep course that introduces the concepts of college calculus.
This course will explore limits, the techniques of differention
and integration of algebraic and trigonometric functions,
and logarithmic, exponential and transcendental functions.
Applications of physics, engineering, and business are demonstrated.
Computers and graphing calculators are used as aids in developing
and learning concepts.
