**COURSES OFFERED**

**MATH INTEGRATED 1**

This is the first course of a three-part series that includes algebra, geometry, probability,

and statistics. Topics include recognizing and developing patterns using tables, graphs

and equations. Students will investigate linear relationships, including comparing and

contrasting options and decision-making using algebraic models.

**MATH INTEGRATED 2**

This is the second course of a three-part series that includes algebra, geometry,

probability, and statistics. It focuses on extending the number system to include

irrational and complex numbers, as well as computation with quadratic polynomials. The

course also introduces conditional probability as a way to make better decisions when

given limited information.

**MATH INTEGRATED 2 HONORS**

This is an accelerated and challenging course designed for students who excel in math.

**MATH INTEGRATED 3**

This is the final course of a three-part series that includes algebra, geometry,

probability, and statistics. The goal is for students to develop

an integrated understanding of all these areas of math, and develop support concepts,

skills, problem solving, and reasoning.

**PRE-CALCULUS**

This course is designed to make use of trigonometric relations and functions to solve

problems in the fields of engineering, architecture, astronomy, navigation, surveying,

and space technology. It is recommended for students to take this course in preparation

for AP Calculus AB.

**AP CALCULUS AB**

This is an intensive introductory college-level Calculus course. This course is designed

to prepare students for the AP Calculus AB exam. It includes the study of limits,

continuity, applications of differentiation, and applications of integrations. Definitions and

theorems are rigorously explored and used to solve problems that require the use of

these concepts. Some colleges accept a score of 3, 4 or 5 on the AP exam as college

credit in this subject area. All students are expected to take the AP exam at the end of

the course.

**PROBABLITY/STATISTICS**

This course is an introduction to the study of probability, interpretation of data, and

fundamental statistical problem solving. Mastery of this academic content will provide

students a solid foundation in probability and in processing statistical information.

Binomial probability distribution and various other topics addressed by the standards will

comprise this course. Students taking this course will learn to question the

independence of two or more events, important in the fields such as marketing,

medicine, and psychology.

**DUAL ENROLLMENT COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY AND PRE-CALCULUS**

This course counts as TWO YEARS of a math in high school (20 credits with honors

designation), as well as a total of 6 Units of transferable college credit (Degree

Applicable, CSU, UC). This course is designed to give students a thorough

understanding of functions and their graphs; polynomial, rational, exponential and

logarithmic functions; systems of equations; and an introduction to matrices,

radian measure, equations and identities, inverse functions, and applications.

**AP STATISTICS**

This is an intensive course in college-level statistics. This course introduces the

students to topics in probabilities and statistics. These topics include data analysis,

collecting data, finding the means of a sample, and comparing data. It also covers

sampling and experimental design, the role of graphical displays as important

components of data analysis, normal probability plots, and simulation. Some colleges

accept a score of 3, 4 or 5 on the AP exam as college credit in this subject area. All

students are expected to take the AP exam at the end of the course.
