Course Description-Mathematics
HS Mathematics - (Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2/Trignometry) -
This is a three-year sequence consisting of the integration and unification of the traditional topics of Algebra, Geometry, Intermediate Algebra, and Trigonometry. Practical aspects of mathematics have been introduced through the study of logic, probability, and statistics.

Algebra 1 (ME21&ME22)- This course introduces variables, constants, expression of equations and with a strong emphasis in problem solving. Topics covered include: algebraic concepts of signed numbers, polynomials, equations and inequalities, introduction to geometry, real numbers, factoring, quadratic equations, systems of equations, graphs of both linear and non-linear, and data analysis. Students needed extra time to master the concepts and skills in the course will take Regents Prep, an enrichment lab course. In addition, students will have the opportunity to pratice  math concept through the Math Application course, Geometer Sketchpad. click here.
Prerequisite: None
*Students take Algebra 1 Regents in June

Math Lab(ME1ER)- This course is a comprehensive review of algebraic concepts designed to meet the needs for Regents Examination. The course is designed to strengthen basic math skills and to establish a foundation in algebraic concepts and problem solving. Topics include signed numbers, exponents, order of operations, simplifying expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities, graphing, formulas, polynomials, factoring, and elements of geometry.
Co-requisite: Algebra I
Prerequisite: None

Algebra 1 /Bilingual Spanish
*Students take Algebra 1 Regents in June

new Geometry (MG21&MG22)- In this math course, student will identify and justify geometric relationships, formally and informally.  Students will be expected to develop a list of conjectured properties of the figure and to justify each conjecture informally or with formal proof.  In addition, students will also be expected to list the assumptions that are needed in order to justify each conjectured property and present their findings in an organized manner.
Prerequisite: Algebra I or Placement Test
*Students take Geometry Regents in June

Geometry (MG21S) – Geometry/Bilingual Spanish
*Students take Geometry Regents in June

Algebra 2/Trig (MR21&MR22) –
This third-year course in mathematics includes number systems and their properties, rational expressions and quadratic equations, irrational numbers, complex numbers, relations and functions. In second semester, topics include: trigonometric functions, identities, trigonometric equations and their graphs, trigonometric applications, trigonometric formulas and inverse functions, and exponential and logarithmic functions, series, sequences and a continuation of probability and statistics. Success in this course is an indicator of college readiness. Students will take the Algebra II/Trigonometry Regents exam in June.
Prerequisite:  MG22

Precalculus (MPC1/MPC2) –
This one-year course is designed to include various advanced mathematical Concepts. Topics covered are: theory of equations, relations & functions, sequences & series, conic sections, matrices & vectors, polar coordinates, and complex numbers. The course culminates with an introduction to calculus through basic theory of limits, derivatives, and integrals. To find out more about MPC1/2 click here.
Prerequisite: MR22
Co-requisite: MR21 or MR22

Introduction to Calculus (MEC1/2) –
This is a year course (one period /day) offered to students who do not want to take the rigorous Advanced Placement Calculus course which is a double period each day. Topics covered include: Limits, Differential Calculus. Graphing calculators are required for this course.
Prerequisite: MPC2

Statistics (MES1/2) – a one year course for 4th year students that will need an understanding of statistics for their college academic programs such as the social sciences of psychology and sociology, education, business and economics, engineering, the humanities, the physical sciences and liberal arts. A strong background in algebra and geometry IS NOT NECESSARY. Topics will include interpreting data thru mathematical analysis with technology such as computers and/or graphing calculators.
Prerequisite: Seniors who have completed at least 4 credits in mathematics.

Advanced Placement Calculus (MC1XPAB/2) and (MX1XPBC/2) –
These are one year courses offered to students who are ready for a college-level learning experience. Courses are challenging and thought-provoking ones, that meet a double period each day. Topics covered include: Limits, Differential Calculus, and Integral Calculus. Students will be offered the opportunity to take the Advanced Placement Test in the Spring Semester and upon successful performance on the exam, receive up to two or one semesters of credit in College Calculus. Graphing calculators are required for this course and for the Advanced Placement Examination.
Prerequisite: MR22 and MPC2

Advanced Placement Statistics (MS1X/2) – a one-year course introducing students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students who successfully complete the course and the Advanced Placement Examination may receive credit for a one-semester introductory college statistics course. At least one statistics course is typically required for majors such as engineering, psychology, sociology, health science, and business. A graphing calculator (TI-83 Plus) is required for this course.
Prerequisite: MR22

SAT MATH (MSA1)– [MAY BE AN AFTER SCHOOL CLASS]
Course to prepare Sophomores/Juniors for SAT Examinations

Research Math (MER1) – [MAY BE AN AFTER SCHOOL CLASS]
This course is intended for students who demonstrate a particular aptitude for and interest in mathematics. The course will introduce the student to various topics not usually covered in the high school mathematics curriculum and lead towards original research on some problem in mathematics.
