Principles of Algebra
2 or 3 Trimesters
1 or 1.5 Credits
Course Description
:  Principles of Algebra is designed as an intermediate course between Algebra I and Algebra II for students requiring reinforcement of concepts through the use of real world applications.  Concepts from both courses are studied with emphasis on strengthening skills for future study.
Prerequisite: Algebra I or equivalent

Algebra II
2 or 3 Trimesters
1 or 1.5 Credits
Course Description
:  Algebra II begins with a review of basic terminology, notation, concepts, skills, and applications studied in Algebra I.  After the algebraic properties and applications have been explored, the fundamental operations of polynomials are reviewed and extended.  Operations with complex numbers, linear, exponential, and logarithmic functions are presented.  Equations with singular and multiple variables are solved.  Patterns and the continuation of data analysis are explored.  Concepts, structure, precision of language, and the inductive reasoning approach are stressed.  This course is designed to give a sound basis for further study of more advanced mathematics. 
Prerequisite: Algebra I

Geometry
2 or 3 Trimesters
1 or 1.5 Credits
Course Description
:  Geometry introduces the study of points, segments, triangles, polygons, circles, solid figures, and their associated relationships as a mathematical system. Emphasis is placed on solving real-world applications of geometric concepts, often using algebraic properties as well.   Algebra I and logical reasoning skills are used throughout the course.   Topics include but are not limited to similarity and congruence, logical reasoning/writing proofs, analytic and coordinate geometry, comparing and using angle measurements of both two and three dimensional objects.
Prerequisite: Algebra I

Intensive Geometry and Algebra (IGA)
1 Trimester
0.5 Credits
Course Description
:  IGA is a course for those students who completed Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.  It reviews the concepts of previous Algebra and Geometry courses to prepare the students for the next course in the math sequence.  This course is a one-trimester course and students completing this course will receive 0.5 math credit toward graduation. 
Prerequisite: Algebra II & Geometry

STEM Math
Two Trimesters
1 Credit
Course Description
:  This is a  STEM (Science, Technical, Engineering and Math) based Math  that will both introduce and reinforce algebraic and geometric concepts in a technical context.  Students will be applying  the concepts from both classes in order to solve  technical problems.   Only seniors will be eligible to enroll in this course and must be recommended by their math instructor.
Prerequisites: Senior Only - completion of Algebra II and Geometry - Teacher Recommendation Required

Statistics
Two Trimesters
1 Credit
Course Description
: Statistics is a course for those students who completed Algebra I and Algebra II.  It introduces the concepts of using statistical analysis to make informed decisions.  This course also introduces the concept of probability. 
Prerequisites: Algebra II

Trigonometry
Two Trimesters
1 Credit
Weighted Course
Course Description
:  Trigonometry is for those students who have completed Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry.  This course covers the trigonometric and algebraic functions and their graphs.  Due to the difficulty of this topic this is a weighted course. 
Prerequisites: Algebra II and Geometry

Calculus
Two Trimesters
1 Credit
Weighted Course
Course Description
:  Calculus is a college preparatory course basic to the further study of mathematics, engineering, and the physical sciences. It includes the study of coordinates and related variables, polynomials, and their graphs, differentiation of functions with applications, and integration of functions with applications. 
Prerequisite: Trigonometry

AP /Advanced Calculus On-Line
Full Year
1.5 Credit
Weighted Course

Course Description: AP/Advanced Calculus Part 1-3  is available on-line available to those students that have completed Trigonometry and wish to sit for the AP exam.  This course meets the Advanced Placement criteria required by the College Board.  Successful completion of both Part 1 and Part 2 of this course is required for students to earn the AP designation.
Prerequisite: Trigonometry (92% or higher)
