Algebra I
This is a two-semester course for the college bound student. This is a rigorous elementary algebra course. Course content includes the vocabulary of the algebra sets, and set operations, basic properties of the real number system, positive and negative numbers, polynomials, rational expressions, exponents and radicals, simple functions and relations, graphing, solving linear equations and inequalities, linear systems and quadratic equations. Prerequisite for this course is an above average proficiency in mathematics. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics requirement.

Geometry 
This is a two-semester course for the college-bound student. This is a rigorous, traditional Euclidean geometry course. Course content includes inductive and deductive reasoning, and the nature of proof, the relationships and properties of angles, parallel and perpendicular lines, congruence and similarity of triangles, polygons and circles, constructions, coordinate geometry, areas of polygons, circles and solids, and volumes of solids. Prerequisite: Algebra IC-1, 2 or Basic Algebra 1-4. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics requirement.

Geometry H
A two-semester course for accelerated students who are college bound. This is a rigorous, traditional Euclidean geometry course. Material is covered much more extensively than presented in Geometry, Plane & Solid IC-1, 2. Additional topics of advanced algebra and geometry are considered as time permits. Course content includes inductive and deductive reasoning, and the nature of proof, the relationships and properties of angles, parallel and perpendicular lines, congruence and similarity of triangles, polygons and circles, constructions, coordinate geometry, areas of polygons, circles and solids, and volumes of solids. Prerequisite: Algebra IH-1, 2 or a full year of algebra in the eighth grade and identified as gifted and/or talented or with permission of an instructor. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics requirement.

Algebra II
This is a two-semester course for the college-bound student. This is a rigorous intermediate algebra course. Course content includes sets and set operations, the properties of the real number system, linear functions and relations, graphing, systems of linear and quadratic equations, polynomials, rational expressions, fractional equations, exponents and radicals, quadratic functions and relations, exponential functions and logarithms. Prerequisite: Geometry, Plane & Solid IC-1, 2. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics requirement.

Algebra II H
A two-semester course for accelerated students who are college bound. This is a rigorous intermediate algebra course. Material is covered much more extensively than presented in Algebra IIC-1, 2. Additional topics of advanced algebra are considered as time permits. Course content includes sets and set operations, the properties of the real number system, linear functions and relations, graphing, systems of linear and quadratic equations, polynomials, rational expressions, fractional equations, exponents and radicals, quadratic functions and relations, exponential functions and logarithms. Geometry, Plane & Solid IH -1, 2 or identified gifted and/or talented, or with permission of an instructor are prerequisites for this course. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics requirement.

Consumer Math
This one-semester course that emphasizes the mathematical knowledge and skills needed to function in today’s society. This course provides the student who has mastered general math skills with the methods of mathematics to solve real-life problems. This course can be taken concurrently with Consumer Mathematics 2. Course content includes units of payroll, checking and savings accounts, credit, housing, inflation and budgets. Prerequisite: Mathematics 1, 2.

Pre-Calculus H
A two-semester course for accelerated students who are college bound. This is a rigorous advanced algebra course. Material is covered much more extensively than presented in Pre-Calculus Mathematics IC-1, 2. Additional topics of advanced algebra and calculus are considered as time permits. Course content includes polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and circular and trigonometric functions, sequences and series, limits and continuity, induction, the binomial theorem, matrices and logic. Prerequisite: Algebra IIH-1, 2, or identified gifted and/or talented, or with permission of an instructor. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics and “g” elective requirements.

Advanced Placement Calculus
This is a two-semester introductory course in calculus and elementary functions, equivalent to one semester of college-level calculus. This course meets the University of California “c” mathematics and “g” elective requirements
