### 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.
