The focus of the course is building the foundation necessary for success in the study of algebra. Students will study linear, quadratic, and exponential equations, inequalities, polynomials, factoring, and statistics. Students will take a local exam at the end of the course Mrs. Cochran
Mrs. GleasonAlgebra I Common Core Common Core Algebra I is the first mathematics course in the high school. It is a oneyear course that will culminate with a final Regents exam in June. Students will study statistics, ratios and proportions, percent, linear, quadratic and exponential functions coordinate geometry and probability. Mrs. Cochran PreGeometryCommon Core PreGeometry is a course designed to prepare students for the Common Core Geometry course and exam (a graduation requirement). The focus of the course is building the foundation necessary for success in the study of geometry. Students will study Euclidean geometry, quadrilaterals, trigonometry, geometric constructions, coordinate geometry, transformational geometry and probability. Students will take a local examination at the conclusion of this course. Mr. Coyne Geometry Common Core Common Core Geometry is the second of three courses needed for an Advanced Regents Diploma. Students will study Euclidean geometry, quadrilaterals, trigonometry, geometric constructions, coordinate geometry, methods of proof (logic, coordinate, and Euclidean), transformational geometry and probability. Students will take a Regents examination at the conclusion of this course. Mrs. Gormley
Mr. Krolewski
Mrs. GleasonAlgebra II Common Core Algebra II is the third of three courses needed for an Advanced Regents Diploma. Students will study trigonometry, transformational geometry, circles, conic sections, probability, statistics, and as it applies to polygons and circles. Students will take a Common Core examination at the conclusion of this course. Two main areas of focus will be on Algebraic understanding and manipulation as well as indepth investigation into Trigonometric concepts. Mr. Hiwiller

Mrs. Huff. Algebra 2/Trigonometry Prep Algebra 2/Trigonometry Prep is a course designed to review the major concepts of Algebra 2/Trigonometry to prepare students to retake the Algebra 2/Trigonometry exam in January or June. Mr. Hiwiller Elective Mathematics Courses PreCalculus PreCalculus is designed to provide students with a solid foundation for calculus. This course provides an extensive treatment of the necessary topics from algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. Honors PreCalculus Honors PreCalculus is designed to provide students with a opportunity to study mathematics theory and to study mathematical concepts on a rudimentary level. Mr. Pachla Advanced Placement Calculus Calculus AB is primarily concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. Mr. Zwelling Advanced Placement Statistics AP Statistics is a full year course whose purpose is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. Mr. Krolewski Financial Topics 1 The objective of Financial Topics 1 is to provide students with a solid foundation for the application of high school mathematics in the real world. The focus of the course will be to prepare students for the reality of finances in the real world. Mr. Lukasik Financial Topics 2 The objective of Financial Topics 2 is to continue to provide students with a solid foundation of applications of mathematics in the real world. Topics will include mathematical appreciation, design and engineering mathematics, real estate, retirement planning and building a house. Mr. Lukasik Computer Programming 1 Computer Programming 1 is an introduction to the problem solving tools needed to successfully design, write, and debug computer programs using Visual Basic.
