Grade 12  Mathematics
AP: Calculus AB (Credit: 1.00)In AP Calculus AB, students learn to understand change geometrically and visually (by studying graphs of curves), analytically (by studying and working with mathematical formulas), numerically (by seeing patterns in sets of numbers), and verbally. Instead of simply getting the right answer, students learn to evaluate the soundness of proposed solutions and to apply mathematical reasoning to realworld models. Calculus helps scientists, engineers, and financial analysts understand the complex relationships behind realworld phenomena. The equivalent of an introductory collegelevel calculus course, AP Calculus AB prepares students for the AP exam and further studies in science, engineering, and mathematics.
This course has been authorized by the College Board® to use the AP designation.

AP: Statistics (Credit: 1.00)AP Statistics gives students handson experience collecting, analyzing, graphing, and interpreting realworld data. They will learn to effectively design and analyze research studies by reviewing and evaluating real research examples taken from daily life. The next time they hear the results of a poll or study, they will know whether the results are valid. As the art of drawing conclusions from imperfect data and the science of realworld uncertainties, statistics plays an important role in many fields. The equivalent of an introductory collegelevel course, AP Statistics prepares students for the AP exam and for further study in science, sociology, medicine, engineering, political science, geography, and business.

Core: Algebra II (Credit: 1.00)Algebra I builds students' command of linear, quadratic, and exponential relationships. Students learn through discovery and application, developing the skills they need to break down complex challenges and demonstrate their knowledge in new situations.
Course topics include problemsolving with basic equations and formulas; an introduction to functions and problem solving; linear equations and systems of linear equations; exponents and exponential functions; sequences and functions; descriptive statistics; polynomials and factoring; quadratic equations and functions; and function transformations and inverses.
This course supports students as they develop computational fluency, deepen conceptual understanding, and apply mathematical knowledge. Students discover new concepts through guided instruction and confirm their understanding in an interactive, feedbackrich environment.
A variety of activities allow for students to think mathematically in a variety of scenarios and tasks. In Discussions, students exchange and explain their mathematical ideas. Modeling activities ask them to analyze realworld scenarios and mathematical concepts. Journaling activities have students reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct arguments, critique reasoning, and communicate precisely. And in Performance Tasks, students synthesize their knowledge in novel, realworld scenarios, make sense of multifaceted problems, and persevere in solving them.
This course is built to state standards. Throughout the course, students are evaluated by a variety of assessments designed to prepare them for the content, form, and depth of state exams.

Core: Precalculus (Credit: 1.00)
Precalculus is a course that combines reviews of algebra, geometry, and functions into a preparatory course for calculus. The course focuses on the mastery of critical skills and exposure to new skills necessary for success in subsequent math courses. The first semester includes linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, radical, polynomial, and rational functions; systems of equations; and conic sections. The second semester covers trigonometric ratios and functions; inverse trigonometric functions; applications of trigonometry, including vectors and laws of cosine and sine; polar functions and notation; and arithmetic of complex numbers.
Within each Precalculus lesson, students are supplied with a poststudy "Checkup" activity, providing them the opportunity to hone their computational skills by working through a lowstakes problem set before moving on to a formal assessment. Unitlevel Precalculus assessments include a computerscored test and a scaffolded, teacherscored test.
The content is based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards and is aligned to state standards.
