Pre-Calculus- Bridges the mathematical gap between Algebra and Calculus. Includes topics common to college algebra, such as functions and their graphs, parametric equations, vectors, linear algebra, and conics. Use of graphing calculators is required. Course Code: 3126
Advanced Placement Calculus: AP Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections among these representations.Students learn how to use technology to help solve problems,experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.

Advanced Placement Physics: This course explores the main principles of physics emphasizing problem solving and helping students to develop a deep understanding of physics concepts. Knowledge of algebra and trigonometry are required and some basic ideas of calculus are introduced. The course is divided into areas of Newtonian mechanics, fluid mechanics, and thermal physics, electricity and magnetism, magnetic fields, waves and optics, and atomic and nuclear physics. The course includes hands–on laboratory component with a minimum of 12 laboratory investigations covering a variety of course topics. This course is designed to be the equivalent of a full – year college physics course.
