Business Math

#### Business Math

**Description**: This course covers the various aspects of consumer-oriented business practices, which include keeping financial records; figuring pay-rates, benefits, and commissions; understanding metric measures; and borrowing, saving, and investing money. Practice problems in the course promote proficiency in dealing with everyday mathematical situations.

**Prerequisites**: 8th Grade Math or General Mathematics

Calculus, First Half Unit

#### Calculus, First Half Unit

**Description**: This course is designed to provide an overview of mathematical analysis through the study of functions, which were introduced in the algebra courses. Beginning with a review of graphing and functions, the course continues with the study of limits and differentiation. The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is used for integration, the inverse operation of differentiation. The course also covers differentiation and integration of the natural logarithmic function.

**Prerequisites**: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus

Calculus, Second Half Unit

#### Calculus, Second Half Unit

**Description**: In this course, students will find the area between curves and the volume of geometric solids that do not have flat surfaces. Integration will be used to find the center of a mass, and to find the pressure and force produced by a fluid. Students will learn to solve trigonometric integrals involving powers and to use a tabular method to perform integration by parts. Additional course concepts include L?H?pital?s Rule, sequences, and various types of series. Materials Note: Students will need access to a graphing calculator (e.g. TI-83+ or newer). The same textbook is also used for the first half unit.

Geometry B NCAA Approved Course

#### Geometry B

**Description**: This second half unit of Geometry builds off of many concepts from the first half unit. It continues to explore right triangles, but in more depth than the first half unit. Congruence transformations will be introduced, and similarity transformations will be revisited. Students will learn about the properties of circles, and how to write and graph equations of circles. They will also work with perimeter and area of two-dimensional figures, as well as the surface area and volume of solids. In addition, students will be introduced to probability for independent and dependent events. This course forces students to continue using a variety of skills they acquired in Algebra 1. Students should be comfortable manipulating and solving equations, and they will need a scientific calculator. If students want to purchase a graphing calculator, I recommend the TI-84 Plus. Information will be given throughout the course on how to use the Graphing Calculator to solve a variety of problems.

**Prerequisites**: Algebra 1, Geometry FHU

Pre-Algebra, First Half Unit

#### Pre-Algebra, First Half Unit

**Description**: This pre-algebra course helps the student bring together concepts from elementary mathematics courses, such as measurement, arithmetic, fractions, problem-solving, and number sense. It shows how to apply these systematically to both real-life and abstract problems. Lessons introduce the student to number systems, formulas to find areas, scientific notation, mean and median, patterns, and to the language, concepts, and skills the student will use in algebra.

**Prerequisites**: 8th Grade Math or General Mathematics

Pre-Algebra, Second Half Unit

#### Pre-Algebra, Second Half Unit

**Description**: This course continues the study of Pre-Algebra. Students will work with ratios, inequalities, linear functions, areas, angles, polynomial addition and subtraction, and function graphs.

Precalculus, First Half Unit NCAA Approved Course

#### Precalculus, First Half Unit

**Description**: The principle goal of Precalculus is to prepare you for the rigors of calculus. This course is designed to give you a better understanding of the concepts, functions, and applications of calculus, and to deepen your understanding of mathematical concepts previously studied to make the transition to calculus as smooth as possible. It is in Precalculus that all of the earlier material studied in mathematics begins to come together. Concepts and applications that might have seemed abstract and useless at times will take on new and more concrete meaning! Precalculus A will cover linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric equations and functions; graphing and analyzing these various types of functions and their transformations; linear and nonlinear inequalities. In Precalculus B we will dive into analytic trigonometry; and how to use the laws of trigonometry to solve triangles and represent vectors and further ease your transition into Calculus.
