    This course is the third in a series of three integrated courses that will meet the minimum math requirement for enrollment in a UC or CSU, and for preparation to enroll in college level math classes at a community college.  Topics covered will be a blend of topics traditionally taught in Geometry, Algebra 2 and Trigonometry.  These topics include surface area, logarithmic functions, and the Unit Circle.


    PLANE AND SOLID GEOMETRY                                                                                                                                9 10 11 12
    Prerequisites: “C+” or better in Algebra I or Algebra 1B
    Plane and Solid Geometry is a California Standards-based course designed primarily for those students with interest in and aptitude for mathematics. Reading comprehension is essential. Proof, mathematical thought processes, and inductive and deductive reasoning are studied.
     
    TRANSITION TO ALG 2                                                                                                                                                 10 11 12
    Prerequisite: C or better in Geometry
    Transition to Algebra 2 is a class taken after geometry. This class is for students who earn a C or better in geometry and need to brush up on Algebra 1 skills to get ready for Algebra 2, but do not need to repeat geometry. Skills taught are factoring, linear functions, slope, rational exponents, quadratics, radicals, exponents, rational expressions, parabolas, and basic graphing techniques.
     
    ALGEBRA 2                                                                                                                                                                       10 11 12
    Prerequisite: “C+” or better Geometry
    Algebra II is a California Standards-based course intended for those majoring in math or preparing for advanced study in college math and engineering or science. It includes a review of the fundamentals of first year Algebra l and proceeds with more advanced computations. Ratio, proportions and variations, word problems, negative exponents, roots and radicals, sequences and series, logarithms, and conic sections are studied.
     
    TRIGONOMETRY                                                                                                                                                                    11 12
    Prerequisite: “C” or better in Algebra II
    This California Standards-based course is designed to prepare students for calculus as well as higher math and science in college. Students can take this before or after pre-calculus. Trigonometric functions and identities will be covered.
     
    PRE-CALCULUS                                                                                                                                                                 10 11 12
    Prerequisite: “C” or better in Algebra 2
    Pre-Calculus is a course based on the California Standards for Calculus and is designed to prepare the student for calculus as well as for higher math and science in college. Topics covered will include functions and relations, exponents, logarithms, mathematical induction, inequalities, trigonometric functions, polar coordinates, and complex numbers.
     
    AP STATISTICS                                                                                                                                                                         11 12
    Prerequisite: C or better in Alg 2
    AP Statistics is an introduction to the major concepts and tools necessary for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Major themes include exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference.
     
    AP CALCULUS AB                                                                                                                                                                    11 12
