MATHEMATICS (continued)
 
 
0808 Applied Mathematical Concepts      1 year         Grade 12                                1 credit
This course prepares students to investigate contemporary issues mathematically and to apply the mathematics learned in earlier courses to answer questions that are relevant to their civic and personal lives. The course reinforces student understanding of: percent, functions and their graphs, probability and statistics, multiple representations of data and data analysis. This course also introduces functions of two variables and graphs in three dimensions. The applications in all sections should provide an opportunity for deeper understanding and extension of the material from earlier courses.                1 Credit     (Prerequisite: Algebra II, Algebra II Connections)
 
0846   Calculus                               1 year                       Grade 12                             1 credit
This course is designed for the senior who wants to maintain math skills while gaining a solid background in calculus. It will begin with a review of pre-calculus topics, followed by exploration of limits, derivatives, and integrals, and their applications. Required material: graphics calculator. Pre-requisite: Advanced Math or Honors Advanced Math.


 
HONORS – These are more rigorous courses that require significant work outside of class.
