Math Courses

• Integrated Math 1C Integrated Math 1 is the first course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This course satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 1. As an intended ninth grade course, it will build and strengthen students’ conceptual knowledge and understanding of functions, linear functions, equations, inequalities, sequences, basic exponential functions, systems of linear equations and inequalities, one variable descriptive statistics, correlation and residuals, analyzing categorical data, mathematical modeling, and both coordinate and transformational geometries.

• Integrated Math 1H:  Integrated Math 1H is the first course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This challenging honors level course is intended for 9th graders who excel in math. It satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 1 and is designed to contain more critical thinking applications with greater depth of knowledge. As a honors ninth grade course, it will have more performance tasks that build and strengthen students’ critical thinking skills and conceptual knowledge and understanding of functions, linear functions, equations, inequalities, sequences, basic exponential functions, systems of linear equations and inequalities, one variable descriptive statistics, correlation and residuals, analyzing categorical data, mathematical modeling, and both coordinate and transformational geometries.

• Prerequisite: Passing the placement exam and middle school teacher recommendation

• Integrated Math 2C:  Integrated Math 2 is the second course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This course satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 2 and is intended for all tenth graders. Integrated Math 2 builds and strengthens students' conceptual knowledge of tools of geometry, introduction to proofs, properties of triangles, similarity through transformations, congruence through transformations, using congruence theorems, properties of quadrilaterals, trigonometry, circles, arcs and sectors of circles, figures, quadratic functions, polynomials and quadratics, functions and their inverses.

• Prerequisite: Integrated Math 1C or Integrated Math 1H

• Integrated Math 2H:  Integrated Math 2 is the second course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This course satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 2 including the “+” standards. This honors level course is intended for advanced 9th or 10th graders. Integrated Math 2 builds and strengthens students' conceptual knowledge of tools of geometry, introduction to proofs, properties of triangles, similarity through transformations, congruence through transformations, using congruence theorems, properties of quadrilaterals, trigonometry, circles, arcs and sectors of circles, figures, quadratic functions, polynomials and quadratics, functions and their inverses. As an honors-level course we will also be including extending polynomial identities to the complex number system, using the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra with quadratic polynomials, apply the general Multiplication Rule for probability, use permutations and combinations to compute probabilities of compound events and solve problems, use probability to make and evaluate outcomes of decisions, and analyze decisions and strategies using probability concept.

• Prerequisite:

• Integrated Math 1H with an A or B

• Integrated Math 1C with an A and teacher recommendation

• Passing the placement exam and middle school teacher recommendation

• Integrated Math 3C:  Integrated Math 3 is the third course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This course satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 3 and is intended for all eleventh graders.

• Prerequisite: Integrated Math 2C or Integrated Math 2H

• Integrated Math 3H:  Integrated Math 3 is the third course of a three-course sequence including Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3. This course satisfies the California Common Core Standards for Integrated Math 3 including the “+” standards. This honors level course is intended for advanced 10th or 11th graders.

• Prerequisite:

• Integrated Math 2H with an A or B

• Integrated Math 2C with an A and teacher recommendation

• Precalculus CP:  This is a two semester advanced mathematics course for students who are college bound. This course is designed primarily to extend the student's knowledge and skills in advanced algebra prior to taking more advanced work in calculus and modern algebra. Course content includes polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and circular and trigonometric functions, limits and continuity, and matrices.

• Prerequisite: Math 3C or Math 3H

• Precalculus H:  This is a two semester course for accelerated students who are college bound. This is a rigorous advanced algebra course. Material is covered much more extensively than presented in Pre-Calculus CP. Additional topics of advanced algebra and calculus are considered as time permits. Course content includes polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and circular and trigonometric functions, sequences and series, limits and continuity, induction, the binomial theorem, matrices, and logic.

• Prerequisite:

• Math 2H with an A or B

• Math 2C with an A and teacher recommendation

• Consumer Math:   In Consumer Math, students study and review arithmetic skills they can apply in their personal lives and in their future careers. The first semester of the course begins with a focus on occupational topics; it includes details on jobs, wages, deductions, taxes, insurance, recreation and spending, and transportation. In the second semester of Consumer Math, students learn about personal finances, checking and savings accounts, loans and buying on credit, automobile expenses, and housing expenses.

• AP Statistics:  The Advanced Placement Program offers a course description and exam in statistics to secondary school students who wish to complete studies equivalent to a introductory college course in statistics. The content is that of a typical introductory college course in statistics. The exam is representative of such a course and therefore is considered appropriate for the measurement of skills and knowledge in the field of introductory statistics. The purpose of the AP course in statistics is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes:

1. Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns
2. Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study

3. Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation

4. Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses

• Students who successfully complete the course and exam may receive credit, advanced placement or both for a one-semester introductory college statistics course.

• Prerequisite:

• Math 3H with an A or B

• Math 3C with an A and teacher recommendation

• AP Calculus:  Calculus AB and Calculus BC are primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. The courses emphasize a multirepresentational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations also are important. Calculus BC is an extension of Calculus AB rather than an enhancement; common topics require a similar depth of understanding. Both courses are intended to be challenging and demanding­. Broad concepts and widely applicable methods are emphasized. The focus of the courses is neither manipulation nor memorization of an extensive taxonomy of functions, curves, theorems, or problem types. Thus, although facility with manipulation and computational competence are important outcomes, they are not the core of these courses.
