Grade 12  Mathematics
AP Calculus (BC) A (Credit: 0.50)AP Calculus BC is roughly equivalent to both first and second semester college calculus courses and extends the content learned in AB to different types of equations and introduces the topic of sequences and series. The AP course covers topics in differential and integral calculus, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and series. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations. Students learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.

AP Calculus AB A (Credit: 0.50)This AP Calculus course is designed with the intent for students to incorporate the concepts of all previous math courses and expand upon these concepts with the implementation of Limits. Emphasis is placed upon the multirepresentational approach to calculus where problems and their solutions are explored and interpreted graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally. Students will also be required to explain their answers in written form and will be asked to compare their written response to the AP grading rubric and explain why they feel they should receive that grade. Students are required to use graphing calculators with the capabilities ascribed by the College Board: (apcentral.collegeboard.com). These calculators will be used in a variety of ways including multirepresentation of equations (graphs and tables) and also for conducting explorations with various functions and how different values change the look of the function.

AP Statistics A (Credit: 0.50)This High School AP Statistics is a preparatory AP course that introduces students to selecting statistical methods, analyzing data, using simulations and probability, as well as statistical argumentation. In part A, students will explore:
Onevariable Data
TwoVariable Data
Collecting Data
Probability
Modeling probability
Sample Proportions and the Central Limit Theorem.
Students will be required to answer questions using proper language associated with the AP Statistics exam. Students are required to use graphing calculators. This course will demonstrate the use of a TI84 calculator in preparation for the AP exam.

Math Essentials A (Credit: 0.50)Students begin the first semester of this course with a review of how to use basic arithmetic operations with whole numbers, integers, fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals. More complex concepts are built on these basics. Students revisit simplifying order of operation problems. They will also learn how to apply the properties of addition and multiplication, as well as the distributive property, to equation solving. This semester ends with a review of solving inequalities in one and twosteps.
Math Essentials B (Credit: 0.50)In the second semester of the Math Essentials online course, students apply all of their first semester knowledge to a variety of relevant topics. They learn the relationship among ratios, rates, and proportions, and solve daily problems using proportional reasoning. Students also look at the connection between fractions, decimal numbers, and percentages. They solve problems related to tipping, commissions, interest, and percentage increase or decrease. Next students revisit their coordinate plane and linear function knowledge, expanding their horizons by applying these concepts to other function families. The course then moves to everyday geometric concepts such as perimeter, area, and volume. Students end their year of study with a critical look at scatterplots in the realworld.
PreCalculus A (Credit: 0.50)In this course, students will understand and apply concepts, graphs and applications of a variety of families of functions, including polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, logistic and trigonometric. An emphasis will be placed on use of appropriate functions to model real world situations and solve problems that arise from those situations. A focus is also on graphing functions by hand and understanding and identifying the parts of a graph. A scientific and/or graphics calculator is recommended for work on assignments, and on examinations.
PreCalculus B (Credit: 0.50)PreCalculus Part B covers the major units of Introductory Trigonometry and Graphs, Trigonometric Equations and Identities, Analytical Trigonometry, Sequences and Series, Conic Sections and an Introduction to Calculus. A focus is also on graphing functions by hand and understanding and identifying the parts of a graph.
