## Mathematics

Introductory Mathematics

Credit: 1

Grade: 9-10

Weight: S

Prerequisite: Math 8

Learn the topics covered in the first half of Math I and review pre-algebra topics.

Math I

Credit: 1

Grade: 9-12

Weight: S

Prerequisite: Math 8

Study algebraic concepts that include operations with real numbers and polynomials, relations and functions, creation and application of linear functions and relations, and an introduction to nonlinear functions.

Math II

Credit: 1

Grade: 9-12

Weight: S

Prerequisite: Math I

Study Geometric concepts building upon middle school topics. Students will move from an inductive approach to deductive methods of proof in studying geometric figures. Two and three-dimensional reasoning skills will be emphasized and students will broaden their use of the coordinate plane to include transformations of geometric figures.

Math II Honors

Credit: 1

Grade: 9-11

Weight: HN

Prerequisite: Math I with recommendation from teacher.

Cover the Geometry curriculum and extend concepts to include higher levels of critical thinking, problem analysis and enrichment activities.

Math III

Credit: 1

Grade: 10-12

Weight: S

Prerequisite: Math II

Study advanced algebraic concepts including functions, polynomials, rational expressions, and complex numbers, systems of equations and inequalities and matrices. Emphasis will be placed on practical applications and modeling.

Math III Honors

Credit: 1

Grade: 10-12

Weight: HN

Prerequisite: Math II or Teacher Recommendation

Cover the Math II curriculum and extend the concepts to include higher levels of critical thinking, problem analysis and enrichment activities.

Pre-Calculus Honors

Credit: 1

Grade: 11-12

Weight: HN

Prerequisite: Math III or Math III Honors

Study trigonometry, as well as advanced algebra topics, analytic geometry, sequences and series and data analysis. Included also is an introduction to limits and elementary derivatives.

Advanced Functions and Modeling

Credit: 1

Grade: 11-12

Weight: S

Prerequisite: Math III or Math III Honors

Make your fourth year of mathematics a study of the concepts of statistics while reviewing and extending the concepts and skills studied in Algebra II. This will fulfill the course requirement necessary to admission to a UNC school while enabling you to broaden your knowledge of mathematics to include applied statistics. This course should not replace Pre-Calculus, or Pre-Calculus Honors.

Calculus I

Credit: 1

Grade: 11- 12

Weight: HN

Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus Honors

Begin with a study of the concepts of calculus, including functions, limits, derivatives. Strengthen skills and concepts from Pre-caluclus Honors with an emphasis on geometric, numerical and analytical and verbal expression of concepts, results and problems.

AP Calculus

Credit: 1

Grade: 11- 12

Weight: AP

Prerequisite: Calculus I

Begin with a study of the concepts of calculus, including functions, limits, derivatives. Strengthen skills and concepts from Advanced math with an emphasis on geometric, numerical and analytical and verbal expression of concepts, results and problems.
