Algebra I (1 credit) 

Grade 9
The purpose of this course is to develop the algebraic concepts and processes that can be used to solve a variety of real-world and mathematical problems. The course is
designed for math students that are not quite ready for Algebra I Honors. Students will complete this course in one year and be able to move to Geometry or Geometry Honors in 10th grade.

Pre AP/Honors Algebra I (1 credit) 

Grade 9
This course is designed for the college-bound student who has demonstrated exceptional skill in arithmetic and basic algebra concepts. This course has an increased level of difficulty over Algebra I as it is taught at a faster pace. Topics include expressions, equations, exponents, factoring, and graphing.
Prerequisites: Teacher or guidance recommendation, academic history and test scores.

Geometry (1 credit) 

Grades 9-12
This course is required for admission to most four-year colleges and universities. Topics include angles, polygons, proofs, circles, and constructions.
Tools needed: Compass, Protractor, and Calculator.
Prerequisite: Algebra I 

Pre-AP/Honors Geometry (1 credit) 

Grades 9-10
This course is designed for the college bound student. This course has an increased level of difficulty over geometry as it is taught at a faster pace. Topics include angles, polygons, proofs, circles, and constructions.
Tools needed: Compass, Protractor, and Scientific and Five Function Calculator.
Prerequisites: Pre-AP Algebra, Algebra I, teacher or guidance recommendation, academic history and test scores.

Algebra II (1 credit) 

Grades 9-12
This course is designed for the college-bound motivated student. This course is required for admission to most four-year colleges and universities. Topics include quadratics, polynomials, logarithms, and graphing.
Tools needed: Graphing Calculator TI-84+
Prerequisites: Geometry and teacher recommendation

Pre-AP/Honors Algebra II (1 credit) 

Grades 9-11
This course is designed for the college-bound student who has demonstrated exceptional skills in geometry honors or algebra I honors. This course has an increased level of difficulty over algebra II. Topics include quadratics, polynomials, conics, graphing, logarithms, and introduction to trigonometry.
Tools needed: Scientific Calculator or Graphing Calculator (T1-84+)
Prerequisites: Pre-AP Geometry, Geometry, teacher or guidance recommendation, academic history and test scores.

Advanced Algebra (1 credit)

Grades 11-12
This course is intended to develop additional algebra and geometry skills. Topics include expressions, equations, factoring, geometry and other related topics.
Prerequisites:  Algebra and Geometry

Mathematics for College Readiness (1 credit)

Grade 12

Prerequisite: Algebra II

Pre-Calculus (1 credit) 

Grades 10-12
This course is designed for students who plan to take AP calculus. Topics include trigonometry and analytical geometry with advanced topics
involving functions, sequences, series, theory of limits, vectors, polar coordinates, logic, and matrix algebra.
Tools needed: Graphing Calculator (T1-84+)
Prerequisites: Pre-AP Algebra II, teacher or guidance recommendation, academic history and test scores.

AP Calculus AB (1 credit) 

Grades 10- 12
This course is designed for students who want a foundation for college-level calculus. Topics include limits and continuity, differentiation, integration, and their applications. This course follows the advanced placement outline for beginning college calculus. AP test is administered and required in May.
