Course Syllabus - Calculus

Calculus (Prerequisite: Pre-calculus)

The student will begin with a review of functions and limits.  There is an extensive study on the derivative, applications of the derivative, and techniques of differentiation.  The integral will briefly be discussed.  This class is not designed to replace college calculus, but rather gives the student a solid base to enter college calculus and be successful.

Grading

  • Students must pass every test at a 90% level or higher to get an A.
  • Students can have 5 attemps to pass the test at that level.
  • If the student takes more than 5 attempts, then the grade is lowered a letter grade per attempt.

Course Syllabus - Chemistry, Physics, Advanced Biology and Geology

Chemistry (Prerequisites:  one year of Algebra and one year of Geometry, also must concurrently be taking Algebra 2 or a higher math class) 

This class is offered every other year.  Topics include scientific notation, significant digits, English and metric measurements, atomic theory, the periodic table, properties of matter, the mole, balancing chemical equations, stoichiometry, chemical bonding, ionic and covalent molecules, oxidation-reduction reactions, gas laws, solutions, organic chemistry, acids and bases, and nuclear chemistry.  At least four weeks are spent in lab.  Career oriented field trips may be taken.

Physics (Prerequisites:  one year of algebra and one year of geometry, also must concurrently be taking algebra 2 or a higher math class) 

This class is offered every other year.  Topics include scientific notation, significant digits, English and metric measurements, motion, forces, torque, energy and power, matter, heat, gas laws, electricity, magnetism, waves, sound, and light.  A high emphasis is put on problem solving.   At least four weeks are spent in lab.  Career oriented field trips may be taken.

Advanced Biology (Prerequisite: one year of high school biology)

This class is offered every other year.  It provides an ample amount of field work and hands on activities.  Students study watersheds and collect water samples and test temperature, turbidity, pH, dissolved oxygen, alkalinity, hardness, nutrients, nitrates, phosphates, coliform bacteria and other biological indicators of water quality.  Fruit flies are bred and crossed to study genetics.  Chemically preserved cats are dissected and the anatomy of bones, muscles, organs, and the circulatory system is studied.  Bird identification (ornithology) is studied not only from pictures and video, but also field identification.   Two major (camp out) field trips may also be taken.  This class is limited to 11th and 12th grade students.

Geology (Prerequisite: one year of Earth Science) 

This class is offered every other year.  Topics include rocks and minerals, volcanic activity, weathering and soil, geologic time, glaciation, deserts, shorelines, crustal deformation, earthquakes, plate tectonics, and energy and mineral resources.  Stream studies will also be included.  Two major (camp out) field trips may be taken.  This class is limited to 11th and 12th grade students.

Course Syllabus - Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-calculus

Geometry (Prerequisite: Algebra 1)

This course focuses on the basic concepts of geometry and logic.  It also spends a reasonable amount of time reviewing algebra concepts.  The student will study  inductive and deductive reasoning, proof writing, parallel and perpendicular lines, triangles, proportions and similarities, quadrilaterals, transformations, areas of circles and polygons, surface area and volume of 3-D figures and introductory trigonometry.  Problem solving is also emphasized.

Algebra 2 (Prerequisite: Geometry)

This course compounds what is learned in algebra 1 and geometry to critically analyze mathematical problems.  Topics cover linear equations, polynomials, factoring, functions, quadratic equations, inequalities, systems of equations and matrices, rational equations, exponential equations, logarithms, and expansion of trigonometry learned in geometry.

Pre-calculus (Prerequisite: Algebra 2)  

Problem solving is used extensively in this course.  Topics include a review of linear and quadratic functions, inequalities, polynomials and their graphs and transformations, synthetic division, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, conic sections, and an extensive study of trigonometry.  If time allows a more extensive look at sequences and series, matrices, and statistics is covered.

  2. Test 100 points
  3. Unit test 200 point

I expect all daily work to be completed fully and on time. If daily work is not fully completed, it is counted as an incomplete, resulting in a zero grade.

Brief outline of expectations:

  • Projects- The students are to full complete all projects assigned.
  • Units to cover: The 1st semester will cover units 1-5. The second semester will cover units 5-9 with students completing a unit on CPR/First aid.
