Mathematics

HS Calculus​

This course is designed to engage students in differential and integral calculus of functions of one variable with applications. The course topics include limits, continuity, derivatives, integrals, tangent lines, areas, volumes, optimization problems, and differential equations. The course prepares students to college majors that require calculus.

Prerequisites: Pre-Calculus

AP Calculus (AB)

AP Courses enable students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both. Students who attend AP courses are expected to take the Collegeboard AP exam. AP Calculus (AB) is primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, applications of calculus and modeling. The course topics are aligned with the Collegeboard AP Calculus (AB) course description. The course is intended to be challenging and demanding. The course uses Technology and especially graphing calculators to reinforce the relationships among the multiple representations of functions, to confirm written work, to implement experimentation, and to assist in interpreting results.

Prerequisites: Pre-Calculus

AP Statistics

AP Courses enable students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both. Students who attend AP courses are expected to take the Collegeboard AP exam. The AP Statistics is designed to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. AP Statistics exposes students to four broad conceptual themes as specified by the Collegeboard AP Statistics course description. The major themes are:

  • Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns

  • Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study

  • Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation

  • Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses.

Prerequisites: Algebra II
