The emphasis of this course is algebraic theory and its major foci: the real number system, linear and polynomial equations and inequalities, factoring and related applications, rational and exponential functions, linear systems, and problem solving techniques
Also available: Basic Algebra I
The emphasis of this course is a formal presentation of conceptual geometry and the fundamental logic of
geometric theory. The focus is the development of analytic skills and the acquisition of facility with
deductive proofs. All the basic concepts of geometry dealing with the conceptual notions of dimension,
construction, area and volume, parallel lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, regular polygons, and circles.
Also available: Basic Geometry and Honors Geometry
The emphasis of this course is the complex number system. Included among major topics are linear,
quadratic, polynomial, radical, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions, systems of equations and
inequalities, continued development of analytical skills through application of algebraic theory.

Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry
This course focuses on functions and their graphs. Topics include analytical geometry, systems of
equations/inequalities, vectors, and the polar coordinate system. Additionally, this course introduces the
student to the trigonometric/circular functions, their inverses, and graphs. Directed proofs of trigonometric
identities and practical applications of trigonometric theory are integral to this course.

Finite Math with Statistics
This course is the traditional post-secondary math requirement for first year college students majoring in
business or the social, behavioral, biological sciences. Fundamental themes include linear systems, linear
programming, operations with/applications of matrices, mathematics of finance, number theory and counting
techniques, probability and statistics, and logic. Practical applications are a primary focus.
This course includes all theory contained in a one-semester college course for Mathematics/Science majors,
and begins with an extensive review of relevant concepts from Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus. The
objectives include techniques of differentiation and integration, limits, continuity, and logical extensions to
Advanced Placement Calculus
Advanced Placement Calculus consists of a full collegiate course in calculus and related topics in
accordance with the A.P. Calculus AB Syllabus. This course is intended for students with an in-depth
knowledge of college preparatory mathematics, including algebra, axiomatic geometry, trigonometry,
analytic geometry, and pre-calculus. Topics include applications to physics/engineering/biological
sciences, differential equations, power series and polar systems. A TI 83 calculator is required and all
students must take the Advanced Placement Examination upon completions of this course.
