Courses
All courses except Prealgebra and Physical Science are offered at two difficulty levels, Standard and Honors.
Honors students will cover additional
material, have more challenging assignments, and more difficult tests.


Physical Science
This is a full year Physical Science class with lab exercises.
This course covers introductory Physics, Chemistry, and Astronomy. This is usually the last science
course taken before the three high school lab science courses (physics, chemistry, and biology), and
is typically taken in 8th or 9th grade.

Physics
This is a full year high school physics class with lab exercises.
It covers the topics normally covered in a high school physics class,
including Motion and Newton's Laws in the first semester, and Waves, Heat,
and Electricity Second Semester, as well as other topics.
Prerequisite: Algebra 1.

Prealgebra
This course will cover the topics normally covered in a middle school prealgebra course.
This course is normally taken by students in grade seven or eight, and is designed
to prepare students for Algebra 1.
Prerequisite: 7th grade math.

Algebra 1
This course will cover the content of the first year of high school
algebra: numbers, equations, functions, graphs, inequalities,
exponents, polynomials, and factoring.
More info



Geometry
This course will cover the topics normally studied in high school
geometry: deductive reasoning, parallel and perpendicular lines,
triangles, polygons, transformations, similarity and congruence,
areas, surface areas, and volumes, as well as some analytic geometry.
Prerequisite: Algebra 1.

Algebra 2
This course will cover the topics normally studied in the second year
of high school algebra: linear equations, graphs and functions,
polynomials and factoring, rational expressions, complex numbers,
systems of equations, exponents and logarithms.
Prerequisite: Algebra 1.
More info



Precalculus
This a high school course in Advanced Math or PreCalculus, and will
fulfill the requirement of many colleges for "one math class more advanced
than Algebra 2." Topics covered will include polynomial, rational,
exponential and logarithmic functions; trigonometry; trig functions and identities,
conic sections; probability, sequences, and series.
Prerequisite: Algebra 2.
More info



Calculus
This is a first year course in college level Calculus. It will cover both differential
and integral calculus, and will cover
every topic on the "AP Calculus AB" syllabus. It is hoped that students will receive from this
class not only a basic introduction to calculus, but also an understanding of
its historical significance and an appreciation of its beauty and power.
Prerequisite: Precalculus.
