Mathematics

B

Algebra 1  

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: A1

The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas, called units, deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear t rend, and students engage in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course, and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Geometry  

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: GE

The fundamental purpose of the course in Geometry is to formalize and extend students' geometric experiences from the middle grades. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Important differences exist between this Geometry course and the historical approach taken in Geometry classes. For example, transformations are emphasized early in this course. Close attention should be paid to the introductory content for the Geometry conceptual category found in the high school standards. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Algebra 2 

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Probability & Statistics with Applications Honors

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

Probability and Statistics is designed to introduce the methods used in the field of applied statistics. Emphasis is given to basic concept s and techniques for collecting and analyzing data, drawing conclusions, and making predictions. The major focus of this course is to provide students with experience in solving problems.

 

Mathematics for College Readiness

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

This course is targeted for students who are not yet college ready or who simply instruction in content to prepare them for success in college level mathematics. This course incorporates the Florida Standards for Mathematical Practices as well as the following Florida Standards for Mathematical Content: Expressions and Equations, The Number System, Functions, Algebra, Geometry, Number and Quantity, Statistics and Probability,  and the Florida Standards for High School Modeling. The standards align with the Mathematics Postsecondary Readiness Competencies deemed necessary for entry-level college courses.

Pre-Calculus Honors

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

The purpose of this course is to enable students to develop concept s and skills in advanced algebra, analytic geometry, and trigonometry.

 

International Baccalaureate Pre-Calculus

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

This course caters for students who already possess knowledge of basic mathematical concepts, and who are equipped with the skills needed to apply simple mathematical techniques correctly. The majority of these students will expect to need a sound mathematical background as they prepare for future studies in subjects such as chemistry, economics, psychology and business administration.

International Baccalaureate Calculus and Descriptive Statistics

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

Calculus IB explores the relationships between variables that are changing and teaches skills that are a basic requirement in Science, Engineering, Accounting, and Business Administration. Material for the IB subsidiary level mathematics examination, including differentiation, integration, related applications, vectors, matrix transformations and probability and statistics are also included. Inst ruction and assignments in these classes are characterized by acceleration, depth, complexity and novelty and more independence.


International Baccalaureate Mathematics Studies

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

The purpose of the course is to give students experience in several topics of mathematics with very practical applications. They will be able to explore how mathematics is relevant in other subjects that they may be studying concurrently. By working through contextual problems, they will learn to t hink logically, extract relevant information, make conclusions and communicate solutions clearly. Students will be expect ed to solve problems that lend themselves to a variety of approaches, and multi-stepped solutions. Students will also develop problem solving approaches of their own.

International Baccalaureate Statistics & Introductory Differential

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

It has an emphasis on applications of mathematics, and the largest section is on statistical techniques. It is designed for students with varied mathematical backgrounds and abilities. It offers students opportunities to learn important concept s and techniques and to gain an understanding of a wide variety of mathematical topics. Students taking this course are well prepared for a career in social sciences, humanities, languages or arts.

 

Advanced Topics in Mathematics

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

A course designed for students who have completed three years of high school mathematics including Algebra 2, and are interested in learning about advanced mathematical topics and improving their math proficiency. The course includes discrete math topics, probability and statistics, and a survey of algebra 2 topics. 

Advanced Placement Calculus AB

Length: FY           Credits: 1.0         Area: MA

AP Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concept s and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundament al Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concept s and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connect ions amongst these representations. Students learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.
