**2129 Geometry**

**Credit: 1.0
**

**Prerequisites:**Algebra 1 or Honors Algebra 1 and placement test score for incoming freshmen.

This course is designed to acquaint students with the basic structure and vocabulary of geometry and to develop proficiency in doing formal proofs. Students will be introduced to the principles of shape and space, congruence and similarity, parallelism and area. The course also provides an introduction to trigonometry and probability.

**2181 Honors Geometry**

**Credit: 1.0
**

**Prerequisites:**A “B” average or above in Honors Algebra 1 or an “A” average or above in Algebra 1; recommendation from Honors Algebra 1 or Algebra 1 teacher; and/or placement test score for incoming freshmen.

This course will take extensive opportunities to integrate and build on Algebra concepts including writing equations, solving for missing values based on geometrical relationship, and applying numeric proportion problems based on similar shapes. Students will develop proficiency in doing formal proofs and will be introduced to the principles of shape and space, congruence and similarity, parallelism and area. The course also provides an introduction to trigonometry and probability.

**2221 Algebra 2**

**Credit: 1.0
**

**Prerequisite: Geometry or Honors Geometry.**

This course reviews and develops the concepts introduced in Algebra 1. Studies will include quadratic equations and inequalities, types of functions and their graphs - linear, quadratic, radical, exponential and logarithmic, the introduction of analytics and complex number systems.

**2271 Honors Algebra 2**

**Prerequisites:**A “B” average or above in Honors Geometry or an “A” average or above in Geometry and recommendation from Honors Geometry or Geometry teacher.

This course reviews and develops the concepts introduced in Algebra 1. Studies will include quadratic equations and inequalities, types of functions and their graphs - linear, quadratics, radical, rational, exponential and logarithmic, the introduction of analytics and complex number systems.

**2721 College Math Fundamentals **

**Credit: 1.0**

**Prerequisite:**Algebra 2.

This course is designed to expand the mathematic skills learned in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. The class will look more at real world applications of mathematics and develop a sound foundation of statistics and probability. The goal is to prepare students to excel in math placement tests at the college level and prepare them for a successful college career with respect to mathematics. After completion of this course, a student will be prepared for an entry level statistics or pre-calculus course at the college level.

**2421 PreCalculus**

**Credit: 1.0
**

**Prerequisite:**Algebra 2 or Honors Algebra 2.

This course is an in-depth study of advanced algebra, trigonometry, analytical geometry and function analysis. Successful completion on this course will prepare students for college Calculus I.

**2601 AP Statistics**

**Credit: 1.0
**

**Prerequisite:**Instructor approval.

This course will introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes:

1. Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns

2. Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study

3. Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using

probability and simulation

4. Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing

hypotheses

Students are expected to take the AP exam upon completion of the course.
