The Mathematics department desires to provide each student the ability to achieve his or her own personal goals in math while preparing for college. Using a traditional approach to curriculum, we provide accurate placement for individuals with opportunity to advance. Mathematics is a key area of curriculum where analytical thinking and problem solving skills are developed. Students are challenged to find most appropriate strategies while understanding multiple avenues can be explored. Through mathematics one can begin to understand and appreciate the complex design God has placed in nature.  As Galileo stated, ”Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe.”

REQUIREMENTS:  4 units required – students must complete a minimum of Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry
AP Calculus and AP Statistics are also offered

List of 12 items.

  • Algebra I

    Considered to be the most important foundational math course in high school, the primary aim of Algebra I is to enable the student to learn, communicate, and apply algebraic concepts.
  • Algebra II

    Algebra II reviews the linear functions and equations from Algebra I and continues with an in-depth study of quadratic equations and conics as well as a study of higher-degree polynomial functions, along with other advanced topics such as rational, logarithmic and exponential functions.
  • Algebra II Honors

    In addition to the information covered in Algebra II, the honors course will be more extensive and go into deeper levels of study than the regular course. This includes the extensive use of word problems and practical applications.
  • Algebra III

    Algebra III is a one year course that continues the study from Algebra II with an extensive review of Algebra I and Geometry.
  • AP Calculus AB

    AP Calculus AB is a one-year high school course equivalent to a one-semester college course in Calculus.
  • AP Calculus BC

    AP Calculus BC is a one-year high school course equivalent to a one-semester college course in Calculus II.
  • AP Statistics

    AP statistics is a one-year high school course equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based, college course in statistics with the purpose of introducing students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data.
  • Geometry

    Geometry is the study of lines, angles, plane figures such as triangles, circles, and quadrilaterals, and solids. Basic principles of two and three-dimensional figures, algebraic skills, and coordinate geometry will be used in problem-solving situations. Algebra concepts such as factoring and two-variable equations are reviewed and applied to geometric situations. A main purpose of the study of geometry is the development of reasoning ability. Inductive and deductive reasoning are specifically taught through pattern recognition, formal development of mathematical proof (paragraph, flowchart and two-column), and construction of geometric figures using only a compass and straightedge. Technology is utilized and integrated into lessons and exercises throughout the course in order to improve students’ overall understanding. Geometer’s Sketchpad and computer graphing software are an essential part of the course. Prerequisites: Algebra I
  • Honors Geometry

    Building on the non-honors course, Honors Geometry will be faster paced and will provide a deeper and broader study of concepts taught.
  • Pre-calculus

    Pre-calculus is a continuing study of polynomial and other various functions from Algebra II, along with study of trigonometry
  • Pre-calculus Honors

    In addition to the information covered in Pre-calculus, the honors class will study more challenging problems and move at a faster pace.
  • Statistics

    This course is designed to introduce students to statistical thinking, particularly as it relates to medicine, education, environmental science, business, psychology, sports, politics, and entertainment.
