Foundations of Math I (20502X0FMI) 1CR

Recommended: students scoring below level 3 on the 8th grade EOG mathematics test.
Course Description: This course is designed to introduce students to Math I concepts. Topics covered include the study of integers, linear equations, inequalities, and polynomials. Any student who does not make a proficient score on the eighth grade EOG test MUST take this course. Any student who feels insecure about Math I MAY take this course. Students earn one elective credit toward graduation but must take Math I to meet the state requirement for Math I.

NC Math 1 (21092X0MA1) 1CR

Course Description: NC Math 1 provides students the opportunity to study concepts of algebra, geometry, functions, numbers and operations, statistics and modeling throughout the course. These concepts include expressions in the real number system, creating and reasoning with equations and inequalities, interpreting and building simple functions, expressing geometric properties and interpreting categorical and quantitative data. The state EOC test is required and will count as 20% of the final grade.

NC Math 2 (22092X0MA2) 1CR

Prerequisites: NC Math 1
Course Description:  NC Math 2 continues a progression of the standards established in NC Math 1. In addition to these standards, NC Math 2 includes: polynomials, congruence and similarity of figures, trigonometry with triangles, modeling with geometry, probability, making inferences and justify conclusions. 

NC Math 2 Honors (22095X0MH2) 1CR (.5 extra GPA Pt)

Prerequisites: NC Math 1
Course Description:  NC Math 2 continues a progression of the standards established in NC Math 1. In addition to these standards, NC Math 2 includes: polynomials, congruence and similarity of figures, trigonometry with triangles, modeling with geometry, probability, making inferences and justify conclusions.

NC Math 3 (23092X0MA3) 1CR

Prerequisites: NC Math 2 or NC Math 2 Honors
Course Description: NC Math 3 progresses from the standards learned in NC Math 1 and NC Math 2. In addition to these standards, NC Math 3 extends to include algebraic concepts such as: the complex number system, inverse functions, trigonometric functions and the unit circle. Math III also includes the geometric concepts of conics and circles. The state EOC test is required and will count as 20% of the final grade.

NC Math 3 Honors (23095X0MH3) 1CR (.5 extra GPA Pt)

Prerequisites: NC Math 2 or NC Math 2 Honors
Course Description: NC Math 3 progresses from the standards learned in NC Math 1 and NC Math 2. In addition to these standards, NC Math 3 extends to include algebraic concepts such as: the complex number system, inverse functions, trigonometric functions and the unit circle. Math III also includes the geometric concepts of conics and circles. The state EOC test is required and will count as 20% of the final grade.

NC Math 4 ( crs# TBA) 1CR

Prerequisites: NC Math 3 or NC Math 3 Honors
Course Description:  The primary focus of this course is on functions and statistical thinking, continuing the study of algebra, functions, trigonometry and statistical concepts previously experienced in NC Math 1-3. The course is designed to be a capstone to introductory statistical concepts. Additionally, the course intentionally integrates concepts from algebra and functions to demonstrate the close relationship between algebraic reasoning as applied to the characteristics and behaviors of more complex functions. In many cases, undergraduate students majoring in non-STEM fields will take an entry-level Algebra or Introductory Statistics course. Students will be prepared for college level algebra and statistics or as a bridge to prepare students for Precalculus or other advanced math courses.

Pre-Calculus Honors (24035X0A) 1CR (.5 extra GPA Pt)

Prerequisite:  NC Math 3, NC Math 3 Honors or NC Math 4, NC Math 4 Honors
Course Description: This course is designed for those students who are planning to continue their education beyond high school in a field of study where calculus is an entry level mathematics course. The course covers functions, graphing, trigonometry, sequences and series, and an introduction to calculus.

Discrete Mathematics Honors (24015X0A) 1CR (.5 extra GPA Pt)

Prerequisite:  NC Math 3 Honors or NC Math 4 Honors
Course Description:  This course introduces students to the mathematics of networks, social choice, and decision making. The course extends students’ application of matrix arithmetic and probability. Applications and modeling are central to this course of study. Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to calculators and application software, is used regularly for instruction and assessment.

AP Calculus AB (2A007X0AP) 1CR (1 extra GPA Pt) / Advanced Calculus (28005X0ACA) 1CR (.5 extra GPA Pt)

Advanced Calculus - taken in the Fall
AP Calculus AB - taken in the Spring  (register for both courses)
Prerequisite - Pre-Calculus (B or above)
Course Description: This course is designed for those students who want an Advanced Placement course of study. This course is based on the guidelines of The College Board and the syllabus for Advanced Placement Calculus. Students are required to take the AP Exam at the end of the school year.

AP Calculus BC (2A017X0AP) 1CR (1 extra GPA Pt)

Course Description: This course continues the accelerated study of calculus and its applications to mathematical modeling. Through class discussions, problem solving, laboratory experiences, and writing assignments students discover the important concepts of calculus, develop an understanding of these concepts, and use these concepts in solving realistic problems. This course generally includes the completion of a substantial mathematical modeling project. Calculators and computers are used as tools in the course.
Topics normally covered include additional applications of the derivative, Euler’s method, definite and indefinite integrals, numerical approximations of integrals, calculating area and total change of a function, additional discussion of Taylor series and power series, additional techniques of integration, improper integrals, and more applications of integrals. Advanced Calculus and AP Calculus BC constitute a comprehensive study of calculus and include all of the topics on the AP Calculus BC syllabus. Students are required to take the AP Calculus BC Examination at the end of the year.
