# My Classes

## Pre-Calculus 01

Available to grades 10, 11, 12 . In American mathematics education, pre-calculus (or Algebra 3 in some areas), is an advanced form of secondary school algebra, and trigonometry, and a foundational mathematical discipline. It is also called Introduction to Analysis. Pre-Calculus prepares students for calculus the same way that pre-algebra prepares students for Algebra 1. While pre-algebra teaches students many different fundamental algebra topics, pre-calculus does not involve calculus, but explores topics that will be applied in calculus. It often involves covering algebraic topics that might not have been given attention in earlier algebra courses.

## Calculus Business

Available to grade 11, 12
. (MATH 0120 Calculus for Business, University of Pittsburgh 4 credits)

This course provides an introduction to calculus for students interested in business, economic, social, or biological science. Topics include functions, limits and continuity, differentiation, applications of differentiation, integration, exponential and logarithmic functions, and an introduction to multivariable calculus. Calculus of Trigonometric Functions will be covered if time permits. Applications to the social sciences, business, and economics are stressed.

### Policies

## Calculus Engineering

Available to grade 11, 12. (MATH 0220 Analytic Geometry and Calculus I, University of Pittsburgh 4 credits)

Pre requisite courses: Algebra, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus.
This course is the standard first course in a basic calculus sequence required for all mathematics, science, and engineering students at the University of Pittsburgh.

### Policies

## Calculus II

Pre requisite courses: Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, pre-Calculus) This is an AP course that covers material in Calculus 1 & 2. AP courses in calculus consist of a full high school academic year of work and are comparable to calculus courses in colleges and universities. Students who receive college credit are required to pass the Advanced Placement test in May.

### Policies

## College Algebra

Available to grades 12. (MATH1010 Algebra, La Roche College 3 credits)

A traditional study of pre-calculus mathematics with emphasis on functions and relations. Includes a review of linear and quadratic equations, rational expressions, exponents, radicals, and logarithms. Polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions are presented together with the conic sections, systems of equations, determinants, and binomial theorem and mathematical induction.

### Policies

## Statistics

Available to grades 10, 11, 12
. (MATH 1040 Probability and Statics, La Roche College 3 credits)

This course teaches methods of descriptive and inferential statistics. Topics include data collection and description, hypothesis testing, correlation and regression, the analysis of variance, and contingency tables. Students will learn how to use a statistical computer package.

### Policies
