Advanced Mathematics

This class is currently not offered.

Class Overview
This intense one year course covers both a PreCalculus curriculum with a heavy emphasis on Trigonometry and a light Calculus curriculum to ensure success in college level Math.  Vectors, as well as polar coordinated, are also covered to help ensure success in Physics.

Student Expectations: Students are expected to participate in class, complete and correct assignments, complete exams at home, and complete pop quizzes. Answers to homework assignments are posted on Schoology.  If you cannot figure out how you missed a problem, you need to ask for help and not let it slide by. Math is a daily thing.  Working throughout the week rather than a weekend marathon ensures success.   Plan on spending 60-70 minutes/day outside of class, Tuesday-Friday, on Math.

Parent Involvement:
Parents need to do the following:
-Provide oversight for their student’s daily progress on assignments.
-Review work with their students and regularly monitor their student’s grades.
-Issue final letter grades. At the end of each semester, parents and students are given a summary of all scores on chapter exams, quizzes, homework, and participation in class.
