High School Math Courses at Barnstable
Barnstable Academy math classes are geared toward the goal that students acquire mathematical skills, understandings, and attitudes that enable them to be successful in their future endeavors.
Algebra I includes mathematical concepts for working with rational numbers, various expressions, analyzing and solving linear equations & inequalities, data analysis, probability, statistics, and polynomials.
Geometry studies includes an in-depth analysis of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry as they relate to both abstract mathematical concepts as well as real-world problem situations. Topics include logic and proof, parallel lines and polygons, perimeter and area analysis, volume and surface area analysis, similarity and congruence, trigonometry, and analytic geometry.
Algebra II is the third math course in high school and will guide you through linear equations, inequalities, graphs, matrices, polynomials and radical expressions, quadratic equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, sequences and series, probability and trigonometry.
Pre-Calculus is a course that includes algebra and trigonometry at a level designed to prepare students for calculus. Theoretical mathematics principles are used to emphasize problem solving and mental mathematics.
AP Calculus AB is an introductory college-level calculus course. Students cultivate their understanding of differential and integral calculus through engaging with real-world problems represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally and using definitions and theorems to build arguments and justify conclusions as they explore concepts like change, limits, and the analysis of functions.
This course, similar to financial literacy, provides project-based and real-world examples to help students gain the knowledge and general understanding of all key aspects of personal finances.
