A.P. Calculus

Teacher(s): Mrs. Dube
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Pre-Calculus and teacher recommendation.
Note: College credit from this course is possible by passing the Advanced Placement test in May, or by earning credit through Mt. Hood C.C.
Length: Year

  • The first semester of this course will explore differential calculus, which is equivalent to the first quarter of college calculus.
  • The second semester will explore integral calculus which is equivalent to the second semester of college calculus.

 

A.P. Statistics

Teacher(s): Mr. Cottrell
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2 and teacher recommendation.
Length: Year
Note: College credit from this course is possible by passing the Advanced Placement test in May, or by earning credit through Mt. Hood C.C.

  • This course is designed to prepare students for the A.P. Statistics exam.
  • Main topics of study include exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference.

 

Algebra 1

Teacher(s): Mrs. Dube, Ms. Ledesma, Mr. Roupp
Length: Year.
Note: This course is necessary for students planning
to attend a four-year university.

  •  Students in this course will build a strong algebra foundation while exploring topics in geometry, statistics, probability, and problem solving.
  • Key concepts include linear equations, factoring expressions, graphing linear and quadratic functions, exponents, and analyzing and displaying data.

 

Algebra 2

Teacher(s): Mr. Brown, Mrs. Johnson, Mr. Price, Mr. Hansen
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Geometry or PAS.
Length: Year
Note: This course is required for students planning to attend a four-year university.

  • This course will explore topics in algebra, statistics, probability, and trigonometry.
  • Key concepts studied include linear functions, quadratic functions, polynomial functions, rational functions, complex numbers, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, sequences and series, and trigonometric functions.

Algebra Support

Teacher(s): Mr. Roupp
Open to Grade 9
Required course for 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th, graders who need additional support and practice in math, specifically Algebra. Placement is determined by test scores, grades, and teacher/case manager recommendation.
Length: Year

  • This class is taken concurrently with Algebra I. It provides an opportunity for students to build a strong algebra foundation while practicing Oregon State Algebra Core Standards learned in Algebra I, skill building, and problem solving.
  • Students will have some time to be supported working on their current Algebra I class work.

 

Geometry

Teacher(s): Mr. Bjorn, Mr. Brown, Mr. Ivester, Mr. Price
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra I or teacher recommendation.
Length: Year
Note: This course is necessary for students planning to attend a four-year university.

 

  • This course will focus on Geometry while integrating algebra, probability, problem solving and the appropriate use of technology.
  •  Key concepts will include reasoning and proof, parallel and perpendicular lines, congruent triangles, triangle relationships, quadrilaterals, area, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, surface area and volume, circles, and transformations.

 

Pre – Calculus

Teacher(s): Mr. Ivester, Mr. Peterson
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra II, and teacher recommendation.
Length: Year

  • The first semester will explore polynomial functions, rational functions, and matrices.
  •  Second semester will explore trigonometric functions, parametric equations, vectors, and limits.
