Prerequisite: Algebra 2
HALF-CREDIT OPTIONS AVAILABLE: MATH MODELS A, MATH MODELS B

In Mathematical Models with Applications, you will learn to apply mathematics through experiences in personal finance, science, engineering, fine arts, and social sciences. You will use algebraic, graphical, and geometric reasoning to recognize patterns and structure, model information, solve problems, and communicate solutions. Along the way, you will select from a variety of tools including manipulatives, technology, and data collection devices. This course takes an integrated approach to mathematics as you further your skills in the disciplines of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and probability and statistics.

Calculus

« Back  |  

PREREQUISITE: PRECALCULUS
HALF-CREDIT OPTIONS AVAILABLE: CALCULUS A, CALCULUS B
This is an honors course.

Calculus plays an important role in science, medicine, sociology and economics. Consequently, it is important for everyone to learn. The objective of this course is to enable students not just to recognize concepts, but learn to work with them in ways that will be useful in their future careers and life. The course uses a logical progression from fundamental to advanced concepts so that students can make more connections between theories and applications. Topics include limits, continuity, derivatives, related rates, optimization, integration, area under the curve, volumes of revolution, and centers of mass.

Probability and Statistics

« Back  |  

Prerequisite: Algebra 2
Half-credit course

Probability and Statistics is a mathematics course that teaches two related but distinguishable disciplines. Probability is the study of the likelihood that an event will occur. For example, what is the likelihood that you will win a writing contest if there are 3,000 entries? What are the chances that you will land that lead role in the school play if 30 students audition? In statistics, you will practice the science of collecting and analyzing numerical data in order to make decisions. The study of statistics upholds that of probability. You’ve likely worked with both disciplines to varying degrees during your math education. 

In this course, you will represent and interpret data using dot plots, histograms, box plots, two-way frequency tables, and scatter plots. You will study normal distributions and distinguish between correlation and causation. You will also determine the conditional probability of two events or whether the events are independent. Using counting techniques and the rules of probability, you will calculate probabilities and use the results to make educated and fair decisions. You will evaluate several data collection techniques and statistical models, including simulations. The course closes with information on how you can use probability models to represent situations arising in everyday life that involve both payoff and risk.
