Mathematics Department Course Catalog

**Algebra 1-2 (4041, 4042)**College Preparatory Course (P). In this course students learn the fundamentals of solving problems by methods that were not previously available to them at the arithmetic level.

**Geometry 1-2 (4141, 4142)**College Preparatory Course (P). This is the standard course in which students study geometric concepts and direct and indirect proof of geometric relationships.

**Advanced Geometry 1-2 (4175, 4176)**College Preparatory Course (P). This course is designed for grade 9 students with a very high achievement level. Students will learn Euclidean geometry, some coordinate and transformational geometry, measurement formulas, three-dimensional figures and formulas, and proofs. It is designed to acquaint students with the logical structure of mathematics as found in geometry and in some additional topics in algebra.

**Intermediate Algebra 1-2 (4151, 4152)**College Preparatory Course (P). This second-year algebra course reviews and considerably extends the algebraic concepts developed in the previous algebra course, with emphasis on breadth and depth of understanding.

**Advanced Intermediate Algebra 1-2 (4065, 4066)**College Preparatory Course (P). This course reviews and considerably extends the algebraic concepts developed in the previous course, with emphasis on breadth and depth of understanding.

**Statistics and Data Analysis 1-2 (4046, 4047)**College Preparatory Course (P). This course provides students in grades 10–12 with another mathematics course option. In this course, students will be introduced to the major concepts of probability, interpretation of data, and statistical problem solving. Students will learn the course concepts through hands-on experimentation and investigation. Students will analyze existing data as well as data collected through a survey, observational study or experiment.

**Honor Pre-Calculus 1-2 (4181, 4182)**Honors Preparatory Course (HP). This course is offered to grade 11 students who have demonstrated superior achievement and motivation in mathematics. The course is designed to be a third year course in algebra. It includes a strong treatment of trigonometry, limits, and algebraic functions. After successful completion of this course, the student will be prepared for the first course of calculus.

**Mathematical Studies SL 1-2 IB/AP Calculus (4291, 4292)**

College Preparatory Course (P). This two-semester Standard Level (SL) mathematics course supports the International Baccalaureate diploma or certificate program. It emphasizes problem solving and the application of mathematics skills to real-world problems. The course prepares students to take the IB Mathematical Studies SL exam, and satisfies the Group 5 (Mathematics) requirement for the International Baccalaureate diploma.

**Mathematics SL IB 1-2 (4295, 4296)**College Preparatory Course (P). This one-year course in integrated mathematics supports the International Baccalaureate diploma or certificate program. The course focuses on calculus, with additional instruction in probability and matrices. The course prepares students to take the IB Standard Level (SL) exam in mathematics, and satisfies the Group 5 (Mathematics) requirement for the International Baccalaureate diploma.
