**Algebra I 31300G**

Assessment: SOL test

The class is designed to build relationships among algebra and arithmetic, geometry, and probability and statistics. Connections are made with other subject areas through practical applications.

Students will use algebra as a tool for representing and solving a variety of practical problems. Tables and graphs are used to interpret algebraic expressions, equations, and inequalities, and to analyze behaviors of functions. Graphing calculators, computers, and other appropriate tools will be used to assist in teaching and learning.

Students are encouraged to talk about mathematics, to use the language and symbols of mathematics to communicate, to discuss problems and problem-solving, and to develop their confidence in mathematics.

**Geometry 31430G**

Prerequisite: Algebra I

Assessment: SOL test

This course is designed for students who have successfully completed the Algebra I standards. It focuses on properties of geometric figures, trigonometric relationships, and reasoning to justify conclusions. The standards emphasize two- and threedimensional reasoning skills, coordinate and transformational geometry, and the use of geometric models to solve problems.

**Honors Geometry 31430H**

Prerequisite: Algebra I

Assessment: SOL test

This course is designed for the student who has mastered the Algebra I standards and excels in mathematics. The standards emphasize two- and three-dimensional reasoning skills, coordinate and transformational geometry, and the use of geometric models to solve problems. Accelerated pacing will allow the student to apply logic skills by proving more complex theorems to increase higher-level thinking skills. This class receives honors weighted credit.

**Algebra II/Trigonometry 31370**

Prerequisite: Honors Geometry

Assessment: SOL test

This course is designed for advanced students who are capable of a more rigorous course at an accelerated pace. The standards listed for this course provide the foundation for students to pursue a sequence of advanced mathematical studies from Mathematical Analysis to Advanced Placement Calculus.

**Algebra, Functions, and Data Analysis 31340G**

Prerequisite: Algebra I and Geometry

This course is designed for the student who has successfully completed the standards for Algebra I. Students will study functions and their behaviors, systems of inequalities, probability, experimental design and implementation, and analysis of data generated by practical applications arising from real-life situations. Students will solve problems that require the formulation of linear, quadratic, exponential, or logarithmic equations or a system of equations. The standards for this course also focus on a transformational approach to graphing functions and writing equations when given the graph of the equation.

The Standards of Learning for this course build a strong connection between algebraic and graphic representations of functions, as well as Algebra and statistics overall.

**Algebra II 31350G**

Prerequisite: Algebra I, Geometry or Honors Geometry

Assessment: SOL test

This class focuses on advanced algebraic concepts through the study of functions, “families of functions,” equations, inequalities, systems of equations and inequalities, polynomials, rational and radical equations, complex numbers, and sequences and series. Emphasis is placed on practical applications and modeling. Written and oral communication concerning the language of algebra, logic of procedures, and interpretation of results are taught.

This class emphasizes a transformational approach to graphing functions. It builds a strong connection between algebraic and graphic representations of functions. Students vary the coefficients and constants of an equation, observe the changes in the graph of the equation, and make generalizations that can be applied to many graphs. Graphing calculators will be used.

**Probability and Statistics 31900H**

Prerequisite Geometry or Honors Geometry, Algebra II or Honors Algebra II

The purpose of this course is to present basic concepts and techniques for collecting and analyzing data, drawing conclusions, and making predictions. Graphing calculators and other technologies will be used to enhance the understanding of mathematical concepts. The course is designed for students who are capable of more rigorous content at an accelerated pace. This class receives honors weighted credit.

**Advanced Mathematics 31600H**

Prerequisite: Algebra II or Honors Algebra II; Geometry or Honors Geometry

This class provides a strong foundation of pre-calculus concepts and techniques that prepare students for more advanced work. Linear, quadratic, polynomial, and logarithmic functions are studied.

A thorough treatment of trigonometry is provided through the study of trigonometric definitions, applications, and solutions to trigonometric equations. Graphing calculators and other technologies will be used to enhance understanding of mathematical concepts. The course is designed for students who are capable of more rigorous content at an accelerated pace. This class receives honors weighted credit.

**Mathematical Analysis 31620H**

Prerequisite: Geometry or Geometry Part I and Geometry Part II or Honors Geometry; Algebra II or Honors Algebra II

Mathematical Analysis is intended not only to extend the knowledge of function characteristics, but also to introduce another mode of mathematical reasoning. Graphing utilities enhance the understanding of realistic applications through modeling, and aid in the investigation of functions and their inverses. Technologies that enhance student learning will be used. This class receives honors weighted credit.

**Calculus 31990H**

Prerequisite: Advanced Mathematics

Instruction focuses on limits, differentiation, and integration. Solutions of differential equations by separation of variables,analysis of word problems, and use of graphing calculators in their solutions are emphasized. This class receives honors weighted credit.

AP Calculus AB 31771A

**AP Calculus AB 31772A**

Prerequisite: Advanced Mathematics

Assessment: In order to receive weighted credit, students are required to take the AP exam.

This is a yearlong, two-unit course. The objectives for this course incorporate the College Board Advanced Placement Program. This class prepares students for the AP examination in Calculus AB. It is intended for students who have athorough knowledge of analytic geometry and elementary functions in addition to algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. This class receives advanced placement weighted credit.

Students sign up for the tests and pay a fee set by the College Board. Upon request, financial assistance is available based on
