Mathematical Analysis Honors offers students an opportunity to review foundational high school math skills from Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II to enhance math skills needed for the SAT/ACT and explore well beyond them. This is a college preparatory course that recognizes the importance of rigor in the development of solid mathematical computational and problem-solving skills. Students will investigate the behaviors of a diverse family of functions such as quadratic, polynomial, logarithmic, exponential, trigonometric, and circular functions. Students will attain a deep and extensive application of Trigonometry, through proofs and problem solving. Additional topics include systems and matrices, sequences and series, and an introduction to limits and derivatives. Students are required to complete all course and homework assignments, quizzes, tests, and semester exams as well as solidify skills through instructional video assignments. Use of a graphing calculator is a requirement in this course for students to profile and model the behaviors of the functions being studied.
Analysis of Functions Honors is designed to enable students to develop advanced mathematical knowledge and skills in Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics and Probability using functions as a unifying theme. Students will understand the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomials and rewrite simple rational expressions in different formats. Key portions of this course include polynomial and rational functions, trigonometric and circular functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, and probability measures and distribution. Students are required to complete all course and homework assignments, quizzes, tests, and semester exams as well as solidify skills through instructional video assignments.
A TI-83 or TI-84 (preferred) calculator is required (TI-86/89 and Casio graphing calculators are not recommended). Students may use these two .5 credit courses as preparation for the math portions of the SAT and ACT exams. This is a dual semester credit requirement. Courses may not be taken individually. Weekly use of Circle’s eLearning Campus will be required. This is a two day per week course. Foundational skills required for success in this course will be assessed prior to or during the first week of class and may affect placement. Students purchase textbooks for this class.
Prerequisites: Algebra 1 and 2 and Geometry 1.
