Course Descriptions

   Business Math: This course is designed to help students explore important mathematical concepts, particularly to real life experiences in the business world.  These topics include statistics, personal finances, the stock market, and using mathematical information in computer programs, such as Excel. 

  AP Philosophy: Calculus AB is primarily concerned with developing the student's understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications.  The course emphasizes a multirepresentational approach to calculus with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.

Technology is used regularly by students to reinforce the relationships among the multiple representations of functions, to confirm written work, to implement experimentation, and to assist in interpreting results.

Through the use of unifying themes of derivatives, integrals, limits, approximation, and applications and modeling, the course becomes a cohesive whole rather than a collection of unrelated topics.(Teacher's Guide to AP Calculus by The College Board)

Algebra 2 and Trigonometry: This course is the final course of the three units required for a Regents diploma.  The topics that are covered :

  • The number system will be extended to include imaginary and complex numbers
  • The families of functions to be studied will include polynomial, absolute value, radical, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
  • Problem situations involving direct, indirect, and joint variation will be solved.
  • Problems resulting in systems of equations will be solved graphically and algeraically.
  • Data analysis will be extended to include measures of dispersion, the analysis of regression and correlation coefficients will be determined.
  • Arithmetic and geometric sequences will expressed in multiple forms and evaluated.
  • Binomial experiments will provide the basis for the study of probability theory and the normal probability distribution will be used to answer questions.
  • Right triangle trigonometry will be expanded to include the investigation of circular functions.
