Algebra 1 Part 1
Grade 9
1 year
This course covers topics in Algebra I at a slower, more in-depth approach with emphasis on the review of basic mathematical skills.  Students are required to complete projects.

Algebra 1
Grades 9-10
1 year
This course Is designed to provide a firm foundation for future growth in mathematics. Topics include: relations, functions, linear equations annd inequalitites, systems of equations, ratio and proportion, similarity, measurement, coordinate, geometry, as well as an introduction to non-linear functions and polynomials. Students will be required to solve problems graphically, algebraically and symbolically. Use of a TI-83/84 graphing calculator, nightly homework, and semester projects are required.

Algebra 1 (H)
Grade 9
1 year
Prerequisite:A "B" or better in Pre-Algebra.
This course is designed for those students whose mathematics background indicates the ability to work at an advanced level. Students are expected to handle the Algebra concepts at an increased depthof work and at a more rigorous pace. Students willl be required to solve problems graphically, algebraically and symbolically. Use of a TI-83/84 calculator, nightly homework, and semester projects are required.

Financial Math
Grade 12
1 year
This course is designed to provided a comprehensive review of the fundamental principles of mathematics including percentages, decimals and fractions with emphasis on calculator usage. This course ultilizes the computations of earned pay, banking practices, income tax preparations, billing, buying, commissions, profits and discounts pertinent to business transactions.

Geometry
Grades 10-11
1 year
Prerequisite:Completion of or enollment in Algebra 1
This course is designed as an introduction to Euclidian Geometry providing the necessary geometric concepts used in future mathematic courses. Topics include the study of patterns, lines, angles, transformations, triangles, polygons, solids, geometric figures, circles and deductive reasoning. Students willl be required to solve problems graphically, algebraically and symbolically. Use of a TI-83/84 calculator, nightly homework, and semester projects are required.

*Geometry (H)
Grade 10
1 year
Prerequisite: A 'C' average or better in Algebra I (H) or A "C" average in Algebra 1.
This course is designed for those students whose mathematics background indicates the ability to work at an advanced level. Students are expected to handle the Geometry cocepts at an increased depth of work and at a more rigorous pace. More emphasis is placed on informal proof of theorems as well as interraltaionships between Algebra and Geometry. Students will be required to solve problems graphically, algebraically, and symbolically. Use of a TI-83/84 calculator , nightly homework, and semester projects are required.

Algebra II (
Grade 11
1 year
Prerequisite: A 'C' or better average in Algebra I and Geometry and a teacher recommendation.
This course is designed as a further exploration in the study of algebraic concepts. Topics include: the studyof polynomial expressions, equations, inequalitities and functions with particular emphasis on quadratics. It also includes units on rational polynomials, radicals, complex numbers, matrices, conics, and logarithmic functions.Students will be required to solve problems graphically, algebraically, and symbolically. Use of a TI-83/84 calculator , nightly homework, and semester projects are required.

*Algebra II (H) (2860 A   2870 B)
1 year
Prerequisite: 'B' or better average in Algebra I and Geometry with a teacher recommendation.
This course is designed for those students whose mathematics background indicates the abilityto work at an advanced level. It is recommended for future math, science, or business majors. It should not be taken concurrently with geometry unless the student plans on taking Calculus during Senior year.Students are expected to handle Algebra II concepts at an increased depth and a more rigorous pace. Students will be required to solve problems graphically, algebraically, and symbolically. Use of a TI-83/84 calculator , nightly homework, and semester projects are required.

*Calculus (AP)
Grades 11-12
1 year
Prerequisite: Advanced math and trigonometry
Challenging course for students who excel in mathematics, and applications will be explored.  TI-83 calculator recommended.  Small out-of-class projects and nightly homework.  This course prepares students to take the AP calculus exam.
