Upon completion of this course, students will deepen their knowledge of solving equations and inequalities, solving systems, matrices, and graphing and identifying key features. Students study quadratic equations, polynomial functions, radical functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, rational functions, quadratic relations and conic sections, trigonometric functions, sequences and series, standard deviation, the Binomial Theorem, the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, the Law of Sines, and the Law of Cosines. Students also will learn how to use a graphing calculator. Throughout this course, students will develop learning strategies, critical thinking skills, and problem solving techniques to prepare for future math courses.

Precalculus

This course covers the concepts and skills necessary for students to succeed in calculus. This course contains an in-depth coverage of trigonometry, logarithms, analytic geometry, and upper-level algebraic concepts. Students develop an understanding of matrices, proofs, statistics, functions, and the graphing calculator. Upon completion of this course, students will be fully prepared for calculus, advanced chemistry, and calculus-based physics.

Calculus

This course is an intensive review from algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry, and covers all topics normally taught in the first two semesters of a calculus course in college. Upon completion of this course, students will have developed a thorough understanding of derivatives, integrals, limits, continuity, differentiability, and other calculus related concepts.

Financial Literacy

The goal of financial literacy is to provide students with the tools to make wise financial decisions. Students learn how current financial decisions affect future financial options. Understanding credit scores, the danger of pay-check to pay-check living, and the principles behind banking is an important foundation taught in Financial Literacy. Students learn purchasing and spending skills as they look into price comparison and explore the many facets sales and budgeting. Students are also introduced to investments and retirements to start thinking about their future, as well as credit card offers, payday loans, car title loans, personal loans, and student loans. Students evaluate offers and recognize misleading data, offers, and scams including pyramid schemes, phishing scams, modeling scams, work-at-home and business opportunity scans, reloading phone call scams, travel telemarketing scams, lottery scams, fake check scams, charity and fundraising fraud, and credit and loan phone scams. The course finishes with taxes: federal income, state income, sales tax, property tax, personal property tax, and other taxes and assessments. Financial Literacy reinforces basic math applications as they exist in everyday life.

Personal Finance

An important aspect of every student’s future is the ability to plan and implement sound and responsible financial goals. The Personal Finance course will educate students in a variety of financial and monetary subjects, including the foundations of economics, preparing a budget, understanding paychecks and tax deductions, banking, and the importance of researching the quality of goods to make consumer choices. Lessons of similar topics have been grouped into units to provide smooth transitions from one lesson to the next.
