27.06217 | 9th grade | full year | 1 credit
This is the first course in a sequence which leads to the study of higher mathematics. Topics include rational numbers, equations, inequalities, polynomials, factoring, graphing, systems of equations, rational expressions, radicals, relations, and functions.
Euclidean Geometry and Euclidean Geometry Honors
27.09727 | 9th- 10th grade | full year | 1 credit
Students make conjectures and investigate properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, and solids. Conjectures are verified through deductive reasoning. Study includes a unit on formal logic. Vectors, symmetry, transformations, algebra, logic, calculators, and computers are used as tools to solve problems. Students should be able to successfully work independently as well as cooperatively and should have strong algebra skills. (Prerequisite: Algebra I)
Algebra II and Algebra II Honors
27.06407 | 10th – 11th grades | full year | 1 credit
This course builds upon concepts learned in Algebra I and Geometry and expands to include the following topics: all types of functions and equations (linear, quadratic, absolute value, cubic, radical, rational, logarithmic, and exponential); inverse functions, matrices, and conic sections. Emphasis will be placed on preparing students for standardized tests such as the ACT and SAT.
27.26247 | 10th – 12th grades | full year | 1 credit
The formal study of trigonometry is included in this course. Students apply technology modeling and problem-solving skills to the study of trigonometric and circular function, identities and inverses, and their applications. Topics include: radian measure of an angle, graphing trigonometric functions, evaluating trigonometric functions, the unit circle, solving trigonometric equations, and verifying trigonometric identities. Also included is the proof and use of addition, subtraction, double, and half-angle formulas.
AP Calculus AB
27.07207 | 11th-12th grade | full year | 1 credit
An Advanced Placement (AP) course in calculus consists of a full high school academic year of work that is comparable to a calculus course in colleges and universities. The course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations are demonstrated through the use of the unifying themes of derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, applications and modeling. A major objective of the class is to prepare students for the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam to be given in the spring.

The Statistics course is designed to teach students how statistics is used to model and describe the world in order to help students make informed decisions. The course serves as 1) a strong foundation for students to think critically as informed consumers of statistical reports and 2) a first step for students pursuing more rigorous courses in data science and research. The course utilizes step-by-step instruction, real-life examples and data sets, exercises, and technology. Student exercises include interpreting results, providing written explanations, finding patterns, and making decisions. Throughout the course, students will analyze real-world data with an emphasis on statistical literacy and developing statistical thinking beyond mere knowledge of procedures.
