    Courses Taught:
     
    * Integrated Algebra I (1 course all school year)

    Integrated Algebra I is designed for students who have not achieved the minimum proficiency level on the PARCC as mandated by the NJ Department of Education. All students not demonstrating proficiency on the 8th grade Mathematics PARCC will be enrolled in this course. The purpose of this course is to prepare students to pass the rigorous Algebra I PARCC assessment. It will also prepare students for future math courses. The two course algebra program consists of four units: (a) Modeling with Linear Equations and Inequalities, (b) Modeling with Linear Functions, Linear Systems, and Exponential Functions, (c) Quadratic Equations, Functions, and Polynomials, and (d) Modeling with Statistics. Students must earn a 60 or better to be eligible to take Integrated Algebra II or Integrated Geometry.

     
     
    * Integrated Algebra II  (1 course all school year)
     
    This is an Algebra II course that is given in two parts over a full year. The first part, Algebra IIA, consists of (a) Complex Solutions and Modeling with Rational Exponents, (b) Polynomials and Analysis of Nonlinear Functions. The second part, Algebra IIB, consists of (c) Periodic Models and the Unit Circle, and (d) Making Inference, Justifying Conclusion, and Conditional Probability. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra I
     
     
     
    * Pre-Calculus/Honors Pre-Calculus (1 course in the fall and 1 in the spring (Honors))
     
    This math course is designed to prepare students for Calculus. It is an opportunity to review all of the concepts presents in Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. These concepts are then handled in greater detail. The topics covered include Trigonometry with graphing in rectangular and polar coordinates, graphing functions, limits of functions, logarithms. The student must have a graphing calculator; they are permitted and encouraged. For those who do not own a graphing calculators, students may borrow a school calculator but must return it before leaving class.

    Prerequisite: Interactive Math III/IV, Algebra II and Geometry with a grade of "80" or better.
