## Course Listing

ALGEBRA 1

#### Grades 9 – 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: None

This is the first year of a four year sequence of college preparatory (UC system accepted) math which presents the core of the traditional Algebra 1 curriculum, while integrating concepts from Geometry, Statistics, Probability, Trigonometry, and Discrete Mathematics.

ALGEBRA 2

#### Grades 9 – 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: C- or better in both Algebra 1 and Geometry (B is recommended)

Algebra 2 is the third course in the four-year college preparatory mathematics sequence. The material covered is an extension of Algebra 1 with emphasis on quadratic functions, properties of numbers system, structure, the system of complex number, matrices, determinates, progressions, series, logarithms, and graphing.

CALCULUS AB (ADVANCED PLACEMENT)

#### Grades 11, 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: C- or better in Math Analysis (B is recommended)

AP Calculus (AB) is a one-year course covering the topics prescribed by the College Entrance Examination Board for Advanced Placement in Calculus AB. It is designed to be equivalent to the first semester of college level calculus.

CALCULUS BC (ADVANCED PLACEMENT)

#### Grades 11, 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: C- or better in Calculus AB (B is recommended)

AP Calculus (BC) is a one-year course covering the topics prescribed by the College Entrance Examination Board for Advanced Placement in Calculus BC. It is designed to be equivalent to the second semester of college level calculus.

EXPLORING COMPUTER SCIENCE

#### Grades 10 - 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: Algebra 1 - No prior knowledge of computers required

An introduction to the breadth of computer science. This course will explore human-computer interaction, problem-solving in computing, Web design, programming and animation using the Alice environment, Lego Mindstorm robotics, and the creation of programs to manipulate images and sound clips.

GEOMETRY

#### Grades 9 – 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: C- or better in Algebra 1 or teacher recommendation

This is the second year of a four year sequence of college preparatory (UC system accepted) math. Geometry is the core of the class, while concepts from Algebra 1 are revisited at a higher level.

MATH ANALYSIS

#### Grades 9 – 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: C- or better in Algebra 2 (B is recommended)

Math Analysis is the fourth course in the four-year college preparatory mathematics sequence. The course is designed as a capstone course for the previous three years, as well as a pre-calculus course. The course will emphasize the analyses of the algebraic and trigonometric functions with attention given to their graphs. In addition, vectors, matrices, and derivatives will be some of the topics covered.

STATISTICS (ADVANCED PLACEMENT)

#### Grades 10 - 12 (year): G, CSU, UC (c)

**Prerequisites**: C- or better in Algebra 2 (C or better is recommended in Math Analysis)

Advanced Placement statistics is a one-year course covering the topics prescribed by the College Entrance Examination Board for Advanced Placement in Statistics. It is designed to be equivalent to a beginning college level statistics class. Graphing calculators with statistical capabilities will be used extensively. Topics covered will include such things as standard deviation, regression, confidence intervals, and tests of hypothesis, among others.
