Honors Geometry

The course represents a discrete study of geometry with correlated statistics applications. An understanding of the attributes and relationships of geometric objects can be applied in diverse contexts. Although there are many types of geometry, school mathematics is devoted primarily to plane Euclidean geometry, studied both synthetically (without coordinates) and analytically (with coordinates). During high school, students begin to formalize their geometry experiences from elementary and middle school, using more precise definitions and developing careful proofs. The Honors course incorporates much more rigor and uses more discovery in the lessons. More projects and tasks are incorporated and the mathematics is applied in a variety of problems and situations. The course is the second in a sequence of mathematics courses designed to ensure that students are prepared to take higher‐level mathematics courses during their high school career, including Advanced Placement Calculus AB, Advanced Placement Calculus BC, and Advanced Placement Statistics.

Advanced Algebra

Advanced Algebra is the culminating course in a sequence of three high school courses designed to ensure career and college readiness. It is designed to prepare students for fourth course options relevant to their career pursuits. It is in Advanced Algebra that students pull together and apply the accumulation of learning that they have from their previous courses, with content grouped into six critical areas, organized into units. They apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data. Students expand their repertoire of functions to include quadratic (with complex solutions), polynomial, rational, and radical functions. And, finally, students bring together all of their experience with functions to create models and solve contextual problems.
