Math

From Algebra 1 to Multivariable Calculus, our math courses prepare students for college with a rigorous curriculum. Over the last decade, our Mathematics Department has been in a near constant state of inspection, review, and adjustment to incorporate technological advancements such as graphing calculators and mathematics applications in computer software as well as curriculum movements. We are committed to remaining at the forefront of national independent schools in mathematics education, and we offer College Prep, Enriched College Prep, and Honors courses at every grade level, across mathematical disciplines.

Math Courses

9th Grade Algebra 1

Algebra 1 topics include the four operations, solving linear equations and inequalities, lines, distance, slope, exponents, and solving quadratics.

9th Grade Geometry

Geometry courses are offered for students of varying mathematical ability and experience levels, and all courses cover important concepts of geometry in preparation for higher level math courses and standardized testing.

9th Grade Geometry & Algebra with Transformations

This course for honors students is the first year of a two-year course, followed by Analysis Honors in 10th grade. The two courses integrate geometry, Algebra 2, precalculus, and trigonometry, and both courses include many challenging exercises. The two-year program is intended for students with extremely high interest in mathematics.

10th Grade Algebra 2

Algebra 2 courses are offered at the College Prep, Enriched College Prep, and Honors levels. This course is an introduction to the study of higher algebraic skills and mathematical functions. Algebra 2 reviews the topics and skills of Algebra 1 and covers many additional topics in preparation for higher level courses.

10th Grade Analysis Honors

This is the second year of a two-year course that begins in 9th grade with Geometry & Algebra with Transformations. The two courses integrate geometry, Algebra 2, precalculus, and trigonometry, and both courses include many challenging exercises. The two-year program is intended for students with extremely high interest in mathematics.

11th Grade Statistics

Statistics is a year-long College Prep course which introduces students to the topics and skills involved in the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of masses of numerical data.

11th Grade Precalculus with Algebra

This course includes the study of the algebraic components of precalculus (polynomial, logarithmic, exponential, and rational functions) along with other applications.

11th Grade Precalculus

Precalculus courses for Enriched College Prep and Honors students include the study of all the traditional components of precalculus, polynomial, logarithmic, exponential, and rational functions, along with other applications.

11th Grade AP Calculus

AP Calculus includes all of the traditional concepts, skills, and applications from integral and differential calculus, studied according to the College Board syllabus.

11th Grade AP Statistics

AP Statistics includes data exploration, sampling, experiments, probability, simulation, and inference, studied according to the College Board syllabus. A national standardized exam is taken in the spring for possible college credit.

12th Grade College Algebra

This course prepares our College Prep students for their first college mathematics course, following the traditional content of a college-level advanced algebra/trigonometry course. It stresses both the technological (graphing calculator) and pencil-and-paper approaches.

12th Grade Precalculus with Trigonometry

Students learn the trigonometric components of precalculus (trigonometric and circular functions) along with other applications such as complex numbers and polar graphing in this semester course.

12th Grade Calculus

This semester course provides a broad introduction to differential/integral calculus. It is open only to seniors who have successfully completed a precalculus course.

12th Grade Discrete Mathematics

Two semester-long courses are offered to seniors who have completed precalculus. Discrete Mathematics stresses applications of mathematics and technology in the real world, covering topics including voting, weighted voting, fair division, apportionment, game theory, street networks, planning and scheduling, and linear programming.

12th Grade Statistics

This semester-long course is a broad introduction to statistics open to any senior who has not taken AP Statistics.

12th Grade AP Calculus

AP Calculus covers all of the traditional concepts, skills, and applications from integral and differential calculus, studied according to the College Board syllabus. A national standardized exam is taken in the spring for possible college credit.

12th Grade AP Statistics

AP Statistics includes data exploration, sampling, experiments, probability, simulation, and inference, studied according to the College Board syllabus. A national standardized exam is taken in the spring for possible college credit.

12th Grade AP Statistics & Introduction to Multivariable Calculus

This course introduces students to the concepts, skills, and applications of multivariable calculus and explores statistics with a deeper, calculus-based approach while also preparing students for the AP Statistics exam in the spring.
