Math seems to be one of the least popular school subjects among most secondary students. Many find it boring or "too difficult" to suit them. My goal is to help all students improve their confidence in their mathematical capabilities as well as their perception of math. Math is not a road block for graduation, but a stepping stone to bigger and greater things.
Math has been shown to be beneficial to all who pursue it. It opens doors to better careers and financial opportunities. Studying math opens the mind to new ways of thinking and problem solving that help in all aspects of life. It increases the chances of success in other school subjects, college, job searching and performance, financial and domestic stability, and even artistic appreciation. Math makes possible all the scientific and technological advances that we take for granted.
The best way to learn and succeed in math is try and try and try. Everyone experiences difficulties in math. It requires you to think and exercise your mind. This does not come easily nor should it. As we "work out" our intellectual capabilities we will discover that we are smarter and better than we thought we were. The hard work and failure along the way only makes the results more rewarding when we achieve success.

Students in College Prep will cover most topics from intermediate algebra up to advanced algebra. The purpose of this class is to prepare students with a firm grasp of algebra to move into Precalculus or math 1050. 
Students in Secondary Math 3 will deepen their knowledge and study of rational, radical, polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. They will also study various probability and statistics topics. A focus will be placed on mathematical modeling.

Precalculus
This course will prepare students for AP Calculus AB and for college level courses. This course covers topics in intermediate algebra and furthers your study of trigonometry. This is the perfect course for seniors to keep their math skills honed and to prepare to succeed in college math.
