Regular Sequence Of Courses
Pre-calculus or Functional Analysis and Trigonometry
Skills Sequence Of Courses
Students who have not demonstrated the mathematical skills necessary for the Regular sequence are given the opportunity to cover first-year algebra in two one-year courses. Upon successful completion of Algebra I (Parts 1 and 2), students may enter some level of the previously described Regular Sequence. Mathematics IV includes a thorough study of trigonometry, as well as a review of many topics from algebra and geometry. In the fall term, preparation for the SAT is included.
The goal of the mathematics department is to train students in the fundamental skills necessary for the study of mathematics, the physical and social sciences, and any subject the requires the use of logic, sequential reasoning, abstract thought, and problem solving skill. Every student must successfully complete three years of study in mathematics. This may be accomplished through one of the three course sequences outlined below. In all courses, students are required to use graphing calculators and other computer technology in their study of mathematics.
