9. COURSE DESCRIPTION
1. Algebra 1
(Pre-requisite: Pre-Algebra): The topics covered include properties of numbers, solving equations, polynomials, factoring polynomials, graphs, linear equations, inequalities, fractional expressions and equations, real numbers, radical expressions, quadratic equations. Logical reasoning and mathematical applications are emphasized throughout the course.
2.  Geometry (Pre-requisite: Algebra 1): The topics covered include points and angles, congruence and angles, triangles and congruence, triangles and inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, similarity, polygons, circles, coordinate geometry, and 3-dimensional geometry. Proofs are emphasized throughout the course.
3.   Algebra 2 with Trigonometry (Pre-requisite: Algebra 1 and Geometry): The topics covered include functions, polynomials, rational expressions, trigonometry, trigonometric equations, identities, Laws of Sine and Cosine, and graphing trigonometric functions.
4.   Pre-calculus (Pre-requisite: Algebra 2 with Trigonometry): This course covers functions, graphs, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, parametric equations, polar coordinates, inequalities, and applications.
5. Calculus (Pre-requisite: Pre-calculus): This course covers limits, derivatives, implicit differentiation, antiderivatives, integrations, sequences, series, and Taylor series.
6. Beyond BC Calculus (Pre-requisite: BC calculus expected.  Students who completed AB calculus and who enjoy challenges are also welcome to enroll): This course will be an interactive student-centered extension to the traditional calculus topics.  Depending on student interest, topics would include: explorations of theory; using calculus tools in a variety of settings; sequences and series in greater depth; historical insights; power series from a more sophisticate viewpoint.
