Algebra II Pre-AP

Prerequisite:     Algebra I, Geometry, AND
(1) A score of 2200 or higher on the TAKS Math test, AND
(a) a grade of 80% or higher in a Pre-AP math course, or
(b) a grade of 90% or higher in a regular math course, OR
(2) Parent/Student contract
Syllabus:          Algebra II Pre-AP Syllabus 2012-2013

This course extends and further deepens the topics of the regular course by teaching the Algebra II concepts required for AP mathematics.  This course is taught at a faster pace for highly motivated students.  Content includes foundations for functions, algebra and geometry, linear and quadratic functions, complex number systems, radical and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, higher-order polynomial functions, conic sections, and sequences and series.

Pre-Calculus

Level:              Regular
Prerequisite:     Algebra II
Syllabus:          Pre-Calculus Syllabus 2013-2014

This course is designed to build on the concepts developed in Algebra II, while also introducing new concepts essential to the understanding of Calculus.  Content includes functions, transformations, inverses of functions, polynomial functions, radical functions, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, conic sections, trigonometric functions and equations, and sequences and series.

Pre-Calculus Pre-AP

Prerequisite:     Algebra II and one of the following:
(1) A score of 2200 or higher on the TAKS Math test, AND
(a) a grade of 80% or higher in a Pre-AP math course, or
(b) a grade of 90% or higher in a regular math course, OR
(2) Parent/Student contract

This course provides a firm foundation for Calculus and is highly recommended for college bound students.  This course is a study of functions, equations, and limits.  It incorporates and extends topics from algebra and piece-wise defined functions. Students also study conic sections, vectors, and sequences and series.  Topics include functions, graphs, limits, differentiation, integrals, and their applications.
