**Algebra II/Trig**sequence, plus one more upper-level math credit.

*The course pathway shows the standard order starting with Algebra I. Students who took additional classes in middle school may be eligible to take the next level in 9th grade.*

#### Core Courses

- Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trig, and Pre-Calculus are part of Jackson-Reed's
*Honors for All*program, so all students take an Honors variant of the class. - One upper-level math elective as listed below.
- If you have any questions about which course you should sign up for, or how to prepare for a future course, please talk to your math teacher or counselor.

#### Electives

- Probability and Statistics
- AP Statistics
- AP Pre-Calculus, followed by AP Calculus (AB or BC)

### Math Center

- Tuesday-Thursday, 3:45-4:15+
- Room 408
- Free drop-in help and tutoring
- Community-service opportunity

### Please Note

- Course names in bright green are required for graduation.
- In some cases, students take either an Honors or AP Version of a class to meet the requirement.
- All AP Classes require an end of the year test administered by the College board to determine if they are eligible for college credit.
- Classes with an asterisk have a pre-requisite or co-requisite course.
- Pre-requisite means that students must take stated courses first.
- Co-requisite means that a student must take another course at the same time.

Description: In AP Precalculus, students explore everyday situations using mathematical tools and lenses. Through regular practice, students build deep mastery of modeling and functions, and they examine scenarios through multiple representations. They will learn how to observe, explore, and build mathematical meaning from dynamic systems, an important practice for thriving in an ever-changing world. AP Precalculus prepares students for other higher-level mathematics and science courses. The framework delineates content and skills common to college precalculus courses that are
