PRE-CALCULUS -is a detailed study of linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Also studied are conic sections, vectors, parametric equations and sequences and series. This course will prepare students for college-level math courses.
PRE-AP PRE-CALCULUS -covers all elements of the regular Pre-Calculus course as well as expanded objectives and skills. At the Pre-AP level, this course addresses the essential knowledge and skills forpre-calculus at a greater depth than a regular class along with higher expectations for student performance. This course is designed for students who plan to take future advanced placement (AP) mathematics course(s) such as AP Calculus AB or BC. Students in pre-AP pre-Calculus may choose to take the College Board pre-Calculus CLEP exam at the conclusion of the course to earn college credit.
AP CALCULUS AB -is a rigorous College Board-defined course. The course includes a study of limits, differentiation, integration and applications, the material typically covered in the first semester of college Calculus. Students are expected to have a firm understanding of all functions and their graphs from prior courses, as well as solid algebraic, geometric and trigonometric skills. Students are required to take the College Board AP Calculus AB exam.
AP CALCULUS BC -is a rigorous full year College Board-defined course in the calculus of functions of a single variable. It includes all topics covered in Calculus AB plus additional C topics so it moves at a faster pace. The additional topics include parametric, polar and vector functions, and polynomial approximations and series. Students are expected to have a complete understanding of all functions and their graphs from prior courses, as well as solid algebraic, geometric and trigonometric skills. Students are required to take the College Board AP Calculus BC exam. They will receive both an AB sub-score and a BC score to help with college placement.
