Math Department
Algebra I
Grade Placement: 9- 12 Credit: 1
Algebra 1 is a study of real numbers, variables, functions, polynomials, and the application of algebraic properties. Equations, inequalities, graphing, factoring, and exponents are also covered.

Algebra 2
Grade Placement: 9 - 12 Credit: 1
Recommended Prerequisite: 9th graders or, 80 or above in Middle School Alg 1
Algebra 2 is a study of mathematical statements, equations, inequalities, functions, systems, polynomials, rational and radical expressions, complex numbers, graphing parent functions, conic sections, square root functions, and exponential and logarithmic functions.

Geometry
Grade Placement: 9- 12 Credit 1
Geometry is the study of visual thinking and mathematical models; angles and parallel lines; triangles; area; polygons and polyhedrons; similarity and congruence; circles and spheres; surface area and volume; and transformations and patterns.

Mathematical Models with Applications
Grade Placement: 10- 12 Credit: 1
Prerequisite: Algebra 1 & Geometry
Students use algebraic, graphical and geometrical reasoning to recognize patterns and structure, to model information and to solve problems from various disciplines. Students use mathematical methods to model and solve real-life applied problems involving money, data, patterns, music, design and science. Students use a variety of representations, tools, and technology to link modeling techniques and purely mathematical concepts.

Pre-calculus – Dual Credit – FPC
Grade Placement: 11-12 Credit: 1
Recommended Prerequisite: 90 or above in Algebra 2 or 85
Pre-calculus - Dual Credit is a rigorous curriculum that is the study of functions and their graphs. The functions to be studied are polynomial, rational, logarithmic, exponential, radical and trigonometric. Also studied are sequences, series and limits. The course is designed to prepare students for and is a required prerequisite for the challenging curriculum of Calculus-Dual Credit. It is a recommended course for students planning college studies in math, science and/or engineering.

Calculus AP– Dual Credit – FPC
Grade Placement: 11-12 Credit: 1
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus
Calculus AP will involve the student in the study of limits, differentiation, integration, and their application. The course emphasizes related rates, maximum and minimum, areas, and volumes. Students who plan to major in science, engineering, or business should consider calculus. The pace is rigorous, and the students will be challenged.

College Algebra – Dual Credit – FPC
Grade Placement: 12 Credit: .5
Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus
In-depth study and applications of polynomial, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions, and systems of equations using matrices. Additional topic such as sequences, series, probability, and conics may be included.

Mathematics of Modern Business 1 – Dual Credit – FPC
Grade Placement: 12 Credit: .5
Prerequisite: College Algebra
Topics from college algebra (linear equations, quadratic equations, functions and graphs, inequalities), mathematics of finance (simple and compound interest, annuities, linear programming, matrices, systems of linear equations, applications to management, economics, and business.
