Department Chair:

The Math Department will no longer be offering Monday Night Help Sessions.
Most teachers are available before and after school for extra help. Ask your teacher at the end of class or send them an email to schedule a time to meet.
Often, doing a simple You Tube search for the topic you are struggling with will bring up several helpful videos. You can also check Khan Academy for lessons on the topics you are currently studying in class.
Go to the Math and Science Center (B139) and ask for help! Ask your teacher for a pass to go during study hall or go during a free period.
Sometimes having another student to talk to about homework or studying is helpful.

## Math Course Offerings
(See www.phschool.com for the textbook website with video tutors, practice quizzes and vocabulary help. Students cannot see actual pages in the text. Passcode ate-0775)
Calculus - This course introduces differential and integral calculus using polynomials, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Applications to real world problems involving business, economics, the behavioral sciences, the social sciences, biology, and medicine are stressed more than theory. Regular and frequent access to a graphing calculator for class activities as well as homework is required. Math Applications - Topics include: Linear algebra, matrix algebra, election theory, financial mathematics, counting, probability, statistics, and logic. Through these subject areas we look at many different applications including supply and demand, linear programming, cryptography, interest, annuities, corporate bonds, lotteries, college costs, and product life expectancy.Java - This course is designed to develop structured programming skills in JAVA. Learning to program offers the student an invaluable opportunity to develop problem solving skills. The process of defining a problem, breaking it down into a series of smaller problems and finally writing a computer program to solve it, is an exercise in learning to think logically. Topics will include: JAVA program structure, using variables, controlling program flow (loops), functions and arrays. - The topics for this course are divided into four major themes: exploratory analysis of data, planning and data production, probability, statistical inference. Important components of the course include the use of a graphing calculator (TI-84Statistics ) with a table option, projects & reports, cooperative group problem solving, and writing as a part of concept-oriented instruction and assessment. This course expects students to develop interdisciplinary connections with other subjects and with the world outside of school.
AP Statistics - This course follows the Advanced Placement syllabus accepted by the College Board and introduces 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: Describing patterns and departures from data, Sampling/Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study, Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation, Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses |
