MATH413 PRE-ALGEBRA (YEAR)
This is a moderately paced course which starts with a review of basic concepts of Algebra. Topics include: concepts of directed numbers, factors and multiples of numbers, expressions, equations and inequalities, functions, and operations with binomials, polynomials, exponents, factoring, and quadratic equations.
MATH412 ALGEBRA I (YEAR)
This course starts with the basic concepts and terminology of Algebra. Topics emphasized include: linear and quadratic equations, functions, exponents, polynomials, factoring, graphing, and word problem-solving methods incorporating basic arithmetic skills.
MATH425 GEOMETRY (YEAR)
This course teaches the basic terminology needed to understand and use the concepts of angles, parallel lines, polygons, congruency, similarity, right triangles, deductive reasoning, proofs, circle theorems, area and volume.
MATH421 HONORS GEOMETRY (YEAR)
This course teaches students to recognize and use symbols for points, lines, planes, and angles. This is coordinated with the concepts of parallel lines and their relation to polygons, deductive and inductive reasoning, congruency and similarity of polygons, right triangles, circle theorems, area, volume, basic construction, formal proofs and coordinate geometry.
MATH432 ALGEBRA II (YEAR)
This course is designed for students of varying abilities who wish to take a second year of algebra. Topics include: a review of Algebra I skills, linear and quadratic equations, functions, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, and radical and complex numbers.
MATH424 HONORS ALGEBRA II (YEAR)
This course is structured to prepare students for pre-calculus. Topics include: an in-depth study of functions, linear equations and inequalities, polynomials, factoring, rational expressions, irrational and complex numbers, quadratic equations, and other related algebraic topics.
MATH442 PRE-CALCULUS (YEAR)
This course is designed to provide students with a background for a college mathematics class. Topics include: degree and radian measure, trigonometric functions, identities, equations, applications of trigonometry, conic sections, probability, exponential and logarithmic functions.
MATH431 HONORS PRE-CALCULUS (YEAR)
This course is designed to prepare students for calculus. Topics include: radian measure, value and graphs of trigonometric functions, polar coordinates, triangle trigonometry and its applications, identities, inverses, equations, vectors, coordinate geometry of conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions.
MATH445 MATH APPLICATIONS (YEAR)
This course reviews algebraic and geometric concepts presented in prior mathematics courses. New topics include: matrices and determinates, probability, permutations and combinations, sequences and series, and statistics. Practical applications include: money management and investment strategy.
MATH440 BUSINESS MATH (YEAR)
