 # Course Descriptions

Algebra I
This course introduces concepts such as linear and quadratic equations, graphing, polynomial, factoring, and problem solving. An honors section is available for those with teacher recomendation.

Honors Algebra I:

Algebra I B:
This is the first year of a two year sequence. I the first year students will cover 2/3 of the standard Algebra 1 curriculum. The course content includes review of essential arithmetic skills, explores and develops algebraic thinking and concepts, in addition to practicing and applying algebra skills in a variety of problem solving situations.
Course Outcomes

Geometry B:
This course is a semester of geometry and a semester of algebra. The geometry portion of the course introduces students to geometry vocabulary. In addition to the study of proofs, as applied to plane figures, symbolic logic is introduced. The algebra portion of the course is a continuation of Algebra B. Students will learn how to graph polynomials, factoring, and problem solving. Perquisite: Algebra I B

Geometry:
This course introduces students to geometry vocabulary, postulates, and theorems. In addition to the study of proofs, as applied to plane figures, symbolic logic is introduced. The curriculum includes a significant review of algebra and applications of algebra to analytic geometry. An honors section is available for those with teacher recommendation and have an appropriate score on the honors placement exam. Prerequisite: Algebra I.

Algebra II/Trigonometry:
This curriculum advances the students' algebraic skills by focusing on the conic graphs and polynomial graphs, logarithmic and exponential functions, as well as trigonometric functions. The topics prepare the student for pre-calculus analysis. An honors section is available for those with teacher recommendation. Prerequisite: Geometry.

College Algebra:

UW Pre-Calculus:
This course is offered by the University of Washington. It is Math 120 at the UW. It is a pre-calculus course with an emphasis on science and engineering. This is a problem solving based course with many "real world problems."

Pre-Calculus:
The fourth course in the regular sequence includes advanced concepts in equations, graphing and trigonometry. The students will be introduced to sequences, series, probability and elementary calculus. An honors section is available to those with teacher recommendation. Prerequisite: Algebra II/Trig

AP Statistics:
A course for students planning to study the humanities or social sciences in college. This course will address the analysis of data, central tendencies, variance, sampling, inference from samples, linear regression, and correlation as well as probability distributions. Many examples from the social sciences will be presented. Graphing calculators will be used extensively. Prerequisite: Algebra II/Trig
