Advanced Math/PreCalculus
Grade: 11th, 12th
Description: Designed to prepare students for courses in precalculus, sequences, statistics, abstract algebra, and probability.
1st semester – Trigonometry; 2nd semester – Advanced Algebra.
Prerequisite: C average or above recommended in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II
Math 1021 College Algebra & Math 1022 Plane Trigonometry – Dual Enrollment
Description: MATH 1021: College Algebra is a General Education Course with a focus on solving equations and inequalities;
function properties and graphs with transformations; inverse functions; linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential and logarithmic functions with applications; and systems of equations. MATH 1022: Plane Trigonometry is a General Education Course with a focus on Trigonometric functions with applications; graphs with transformations; inverse functions; fundamental identities and angle formulas; solving equations; solving triangles with applications; polar coordinate system; and vectors.
Prerequisite: University Admissions Standards – Minimum ACT Composite score of 18 (Old SAT/PSAT860 or New SAT/PSAT940) AND minimum ACT Math score of 19 (Old SAT/PSAT460 or New SAT/PSAT500); 2.5 GPA and Teacher Recommendation required.
Statistics
Grade: 10th, 11th, & 12th Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Description: The AP Statistics course is equivalent to a onesemester, introductory, noncalculusbased college course in statistics. The course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding. Note: Students who take this class are required to take the AP Exam.
Prerequisites: C or above average in Algebra II; AP Coordinator Approval
Calculus ABAdv. Placement: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Grade: 12th
Description: AP Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and
integral calculus. The course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. It teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations. Note: Students who take this class are required to take the AP Exam.
Prerequisite: C or above average in Advanced Math; AP Coordinator Approval.
Calculus BCAdv. Placement: Extra Quality Point Awarded for C or Above
Grade: 12th
Description: AP Calculus BC is roughly equivalent to both first and second semester college calculus courses. It extends the
content learned in AB to different types of equations (polar, parametric, vectorvalued) and new topics (such as Euler’s method, integration by parts, partial fraction decomposition, and improper integrals), and introduces the topic of sequences and series. The AP course covers topics in differential and integral calculus, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and series. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations.
