• # ACCESS MATH

ACCESS MATH will focus on building the skills needed to be successful in Integrated Mathematics I. Topics of study will include number sense, fractions, decimals, PERCENTAGES, integers, and solving linear equations in multiple forms. Students will develop their essentials skills using software that adjusts to each students’ skill level. Note: Elective credits only.
Math Department Recommendation: Those students taking this course should also select CCIM1 within the same school year.

• # CCIM1 (COMMON CORE INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS 1)

This course includes the standards from the Common Core State Standards. Included are the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Topics of study include: writing expressions and equations to describe numbers and relationships; solve and graph linear and exponential functions; model linear functions; solve, graph and model systems of equations and inequalities; summarize, represent and interpret data; use transformations to understand congruence; use geometric constructions to understand geometric properties; and use coordinate geometry to prove geometric theorems.

• # CCIM3 (COMMON CORE INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS 3)

This course includes the standards from the Common Core State Standards. Included are the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Topics of study include: statistics involving data distributions; quadratic, polynomial, rational, radical, exponential and logarithmic functions; and composition of functions.
Math Department Recommendation: Grade of B or better in CCIM2

• # HONORS PRECALCULUS

Designed for college preparatory students. Students will learn the skills and proficiencies necessary to complete geometric and algebraic interpretations of functions, linear and quadratic inequalities, rational and polynomial functions, exponential and logarithmic functions and their applications, trigonometric functions, and their properties and applications, analytic geometry including conics and their application, and polar coordinates and vectors.

• # AP CALCULUS AB - Fall

Calculus AB is an advanced placement course designed for university preparatory students. This course focuses on the study of limits, continuity, differentiation, and anti-differentiation (integration). Students will learn the techniques of differentiation and integration with an emphasis on the application of these techniques in real-world situations. Students enrolled in this course are expected to take the AP exam.

• # IB MATH SL-1, SL-2

The IB Math SL curriculum covers six topics: advanced algebra and functions, trigonometry, vectors, statistics, probability, and calculus. The study of calculus will be extended to include all the topics necessary for students to also be prepared to take the AP Calculus AB exam. Students will complete an Internal Assessment called a Mathematical Exploration in which they will create a written work that requires investigating how mathematics is involved in an area of interest to them. Students completing this course in Grade 11 will be prepared to take AP Calculus BC in Grade 12. International Baccalaureate courses are open to any Granite Bay High School student. Applicable IB exam and registration fees apply. ALL students enrolled in IB courses are required to complete the entire course and sit for the external exams in May.

• # EAP SENIOR MATH EXPERIENCE

Designed for college preparatory seniors who scored “not-ready” or “conditional” on the Early Assessment Program (EAP). Course topics include problem solving, linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, absolute value, and piecewise functions, finance, and systems of equations and inequalities. This course provides a path for students to strengthen understanding of mathematical content defined by Common Core Standards. In addition, completion of this course allows students to enroll in college level math course at Sierra College without a placement test. For students entering California State University at Sacramento (CSUS) who score “conditional” on the EAP test, successful completion of this course eliminates the ELM testing requirement.

• # CCIM2 (COMMON CORE INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS 2)

This course includes the standards from the Common Core State Standards. Included are the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Probability and Statistics. Topics of study include: Introduction to Proof, Special Right Triangles, Similarity, Triangle Congruence, Trigonometry, Surface Area and volume, Quadrilaterals, Coordinate Proof, Quadratic Functions and Equations, and Probability.
Math Department Recommendation: Grade of B or better in CCIM1

• # PRE-CALCULUS

Designed for college preparatory students. Pre-Calculus is a course designed for students who have passed CCIM3 but will not be taking, or are not quite ready to take, Honors Pre-Calculus. This course is designed to further students’ understanding of college level algebra topics. Upon successful completion of this course, students can take Honors Pre-Calculus, Senior EAP, and/or AP Statistics. Topics include linear functions, quadratic functions, polynomial functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, conics, sequences, series. Common Core philosophies as well as mathematical practices will guide instruction and level of rigor.
Math Department Recommendation: Grade of B or better in CCIM3

• # AP STATISTICS

AP Statistics is a one-term course in statistics. The course is designed to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes: exploring data, planning a study, probability, and statistical inference. Students who successfully complete the course and examination may receive credit and/or advanced placement for a one semester introductory college statistics course. AP students are expected to sign up for and take the AP exam.

• # AP CALCULUS BC - Spring

Calculus BC builds off the concepts from Calculus AB and extends the study of differentiation and anti-differentiation (integration). This course includes the study of advanced integration techniques, differential equations, parametric, polar and vector functions, and polynomial approximation and series. Students enrolled in this course are expected to take the AP exam.
