- 210 - Geometry
Grades: 9-10Read More >
Prerequisite: Algebra I
Geometry focuses on important geometric facts, proofs using deductive reasoning, the integration of algebra and geometry, and applications of geometry. During the year, the student will learn the properties of parallel lines, circles, triangles, parallelograms, and other polygons. These properties will be used to study coordinate geometry, congruence, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, perimeter, area, surface area, and volume. Throughout the course the student will use and further develop skills learned in algebra.
- 215 - Geometry Honors
Prerequisite: Algebra I AND teacher recommendation
The honors level of geometry covers all topics included in the regular level, but at an accelerated pace. Many concepts are extended and developed more completely; there is a greater emphasis on proof and solving non-routine problems; and the pace of the course affords the opportunity to explore additional topics, such as non-Euclidean geometries. Outside readings, projects, and/or independent research may be used to enrich this advanced study. Throughout the course, students will use and further develop skills learned in algebra.

- 220 - Algebra II
Grades: 9-11Read More >
Prerequisite: 210 - Geometry or 215 - Geometry Honors
Algebra II begins with a review of basic algebra topics introduced at the Algebra I level but quickly moves to more advanced topics including relations, functions (linear, quadratic, radical, rational, exponential, and logarithmic), complex numbers, matrices, sequences, series, probability, and statistics. An emphasis will be placed not only on the acquisition of certain algebraic skills but also on problem solving and applications. Students are expected to maintain an 80 average to move into Precalculus the next year.
- 225 - Algebra II Honors
Prerequisite: 210 - Geometry or 215 - Geometry Honors AND teacher recommendationRead More >
Honors Algebra II is fast-paced and challenging, designed to go well beyond the topics of Algebra II. This accelerated study of algebra will include a thorough investigation of polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, conic sections, vectors, and an introduction to descriptive statistics.
- 240 - Precalculus
Prerequisite: Year-long average of 80 or higher in 220 - Algebra II OR 230 - College Algebra and Trigonometry and teacher recommendation
Precalculus mathematics encompasses concepts that develop out of topics from algebra. The content begins with a review of linear and quadratic functions. It continues with an emphasis on polynomial and rational functions, logarithmic and exponential functions, conic sections, trigonometric functions, applications of trigonometry, vectors, linear systems, and matrices. Upon successful completion of Precalculus, students should be prepared for a course in Calculus.

- 245 - Precalculus Honors
Grades: 10-12Read More >
Prerequisite: 225 - Algebra II Honors AND teacher recommendation
This course covers the same topics as Precalculus but in greater depth. In addition, it includes a continuation of the study of vectors begun in Algebra II Honors, as well as an in-depth investigation of polar coordinates and limits as preparation for Calculus at the AP level. Throughout the course, an emphasis is placed on critical thinking and problem solving. A student wishing to make the transition from Algebra II to Precalculus Honors must do preparatory work during the summer and demonstrate mastery of specific topics through satisfactory completion of a placement exam taken prior to the beginning of the school year.
