Mathematics Courses 
Algebra 1
Algebra 1 introduces to the basic structure of algebra. This includes the study of variables, combining polynomials, factoring, slopes, and graphs, solving linear, quadratic and systems of linear equations, problem solving, exponents, and statistics. A TI86 Graphing Calculator is required for this class. Rental is available at a cost of $20 per semester.

Consumer Math
Consumer Math provides a complete review of the basic skills relating to consumerism. Topics covered include vital skills for such tasks as banking, budgeting, calculation of interest and taxes. Other topics include computing auto expenses, and units on careers, economics, consumerawareness, and applying for jobs. Fundamental math skills will be discussed and practiced throughout this course. A Scientific Calculator is required for this class.

Credit: 0.5
Prerequisite: Algebra 1

Algebra 2
Algebra 2 is designed for students who are interested in having a deeper understanding of Algebra and applying algebraic fundamentals. This class quickly reviews topics of Algebra 1 and then covers exponents and exponential functions, quadratic equations and functions, polynomials and factoring, rational equations and functions, radicals, and connections to geometry. Additional skills covered in this class are problemsolving and writing. A TI86 Graphing Calculator is required for this class. Rental is available at a cost of $20 per semester.

Credit: 1.0
Prerequisite: Algebra 1 & Geometry

Advanced Algebra
Advanced Algebra is for students who are highly motivated and have a very solid foundation of Algebra 1 and Geometry skills. This is a fastpaced class and students should plan on individual study time outside of class to master the skills and procedures presented in class. This course introduces the concept of function and explores a variety of functions including linear quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithimic, and rational functions. The properties of function are used to analyze applications within the fields of science, social studies, language arts, business, economics, and others. Discussion includes a variety of other topics including matrices and conic sections. This course is for university bound and some technical college bound students. A TI86 Graphing Calculator is required for this class. Rental is available at a cost of $20 per semester.
Grades:1012
Length: 2 terms
Credit: 1.0
Prerequisite: Algebra 1 & Geometry

College Calculus
AP/CAPP Calculus investigates the key mathematical concepts of the function, the limit, the derivative, and the integral. These concepts are discussed from a geometric, numerical, and analytical perspective. These concepts are used to explore applications within the fields of mathematics, the physical sciences, engineering, the social sciences, and the biological sciences. Students wishing to take this class for college credit must meet the CAPP entrance requirements found on page 7 and meet required score on math placement exam. A TI86 Graphing Calculator is required for this class. Rental is available at a cost of $10 per term.
Grade: 12
Length: 3 terms
Credit: 1.5
Prerequisite: PreCalc & Trigonometry

Math For The Trades
Math for the Trades will review major concepts learned in Algebra 1& Geometry including equations and formulas, right triangles, Trigonometry, Measurement, and Area/Perimeter/Surface Area/Volume. We emphasize how these concepts are applied to a variety of construction trades. Students are expected to demonstrate mastery of these mathematical concepts in isolation and "real life" applications. Students will gain a better understanding of the interplay between geometry and algebra and will be able to use the techniques of each discipline to solve problems.

PreCalculus
PreCalculus provides a deeper understanding of topics from previous math courses and serves as a foundation for Calculus. This oneterm class includes the study of the real number system, equations and inequalities, relations and functions, graphs, polynomial and rational functions, sequences and series. Grading is determined on daily assignments, quizzes, and major tests. This is an important course for all college bound students and for some technical college students. PreCalculus is best taken with Trigonometry, but can be taken independently. A TI86 Graphing Calculator is required for this class. Rental is available at a cost of $10 per term.

Prerequisite: Advanced Algebra

Trigonometry
Trigonometry is for students with a solid foundation in Geometry and Advanced Algebra. This course includes the study of right triangle trigonometry, circular functions, and trigonometric functions. Included within these topics are solutions of triangles, proofs of identities, solutions of equations, graphs or trigonometric functions, and the study of complex numbers and the polar coordinate system. Trigonometry is strongly recommended for all college and technical college bound students. Trigonometry is best taken in conjunction with PreCalculus, but may be taken independently. A TI86 Graphing Calculator is required for this class. Rental is available at a cost of $10 per term.
