2)  Use reasoning and proof
3)  Work with parallel and perpendicular lines

4)  Solve problems with congruent triangles
5)  Study relationships within triangles
6)  Solve problems involving quadrilaterals

CALCULUS     2 Credits   Full Year Course

Pre-requisite:  Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II  - Elective Course
This course contains an intensive review of the topics from algebra, trigonometry and analytical geometry that are necessary for success in calculus and contains an in-depth coverage of all the topics normally taught in the first two semesters of three-semester calculus sequence.  Naming some of the topics covered- limits, derivatives, critical points, integrals, accelerations, areas under curves, volumes of solids of revolution and rate problems.  

BASIC GEOMETRY  2 Credits    Full Year Course

Pre-requisite: Pre-algebra or Alg I - Elective Course

This course is a basic study of geometry.  We will cover many of the same topics that we cover in Geometry but not as in-depth.  We also do not do proofs in this class.  

                                  ALGEBRA II     2 Credits      Full Year Course

Pre-requisite:  Algebra I and Geometry - Elective Course

This course covers a lot of advanced algebra topics such as functions, linear systems, matrices, quadratics, polynomials, exponential and rational functions, sequences and series, trigonometry.
This class is the pre-requisite for Calculus so students will need to take this class during May Term if they plan to take Calculus the following year.
