INTRODUCTION TO HIGH SCHOOL GEOMETRY ★ Entering Grades 9-12 – This course will introduce students to Euclidean geometry and assist them in understanding two- and three-dimensional space. Students will develop important basic geometry skills and explore various proofs through logical deduction. The course will include hands-on explorations of geometric transformations, similar and congruent polygons, area and volume of solids, 2D and 3D polygons and polyhedra as well as the Pythagorean theorem.
INTRODUCTION TO HIGH SCHOOL PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS ★
Entering Grades 9-12 – This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts of statistics and probability. Students will learn how to design studies that produce useful data, as well as how to analyze categorical data, how to display quantitative data with graphs and how to describe quantitative data with numbers. Students will study sampling and surveys as well as experiments and techniques for analyzing studies wisely. Students will learn how to calculate probabilities and how to interpret results in plain language.
INTRODUCTION TO HIGH SCHOOL TRIGONOMETRY ★
Entering Grades 9-12 – Students will learn how to convert to radians, find arc and sector lengths, and study the six preliminary trigonometric functions. Students will use the terminal ray of an angle in standard position, graph the functions and use the unit circle. Students should bring a pencil, eraser, small ruler, graph paper and TI-84 (or equivalent) calculator daily.
SCIENCE
ESSENTIAL HIGH SCHOOL
CHEMISTRY PRINCIPLES
Entering Grades 9-12 – This course is designed
to preview some of the main topics in high school chemistry. Students will learn about dimensional analysis, the periodic table, stoichiometry and gas laws. The class will investigate the structures and properties of matter, chemical reactions and the energy and forces that drive these interactions. Students will be expected to use algebra to explain these ideas. Students will
be challenged to solve problems and answer complex questions in pairs and group work. This is not a lab class, but students will complete activities and projects such as building their own periodic table and creating molecule models to promote understanding and retention.
