AP Calculus BC

This fast-paced college-level course covers the topics presented in AP Calculus AB in greater depth, as well as infinite series, including the Taylor series. Students also investigate functions defined by polar and parametric equations and vectors. They use topics such as the logistic growth model and related rates to apply their work to real world situations. Using calculus, they are able to calculate the carrying capacity of a pack of wolves, or how fast the volume of a balloon is changing when inflated or deflated. Students use online resources such as Desmos and the AP Classroom along with graphing calculators to enhance their knowledge of the concepts while preparing for the AP Exam.

AP Calculus AB

AP Calculus AB is an introductory college-level calculus course. Students cultivate their understanding of differential and integral calculus through engaging with real-world problems. This comprehensive course requires students to use definitions and theorems to build arguments and justify conclusions. Students learn to solve problems expressed graphically, numerically, analytically and verbally to build a deeper understanding of the presented topics. Students use online resources such as Desmos and the AP Classroom along with graphing calculators to enhance their knowledge of the concepts while preparing for the AP exam in May, and the possibility of taking AP Calculus BC the following year.

Geometry A

Available to: qualified students, see placement requirements link on the Math Department page In this course students continue to strengthen their understanding of the fundamentals of elementary algebra with an intensive review of algebraic topics before beginning their formal study of geometry. Students learn in a supportive environment that enables them to learn at an appropriate instructional pace. The skills developed in this course help to prepare students for courses in advanced algebra. Students in Geometry A are usually placed into Intermediate Algebra or Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry / Precalculus (AATP).
