Students enrolled in this course will be utilize the Foundations of Algebra 1 program which addresses all of the content outlined in the PA Core Standards.  This program utilizes a research-based instructional approach that includes both inquiry-based learning and direct instruction lessons.  This program exposes students to a solid foundation in Algebra 1. 

A smaller class setting is utilized to provide more individualized instruction and remediation. Additional attention is given to assist students in the acquisition of more abstract topics. The purpose of this course is to meet the needs of students requiring more assistance.  The content of Algebra 1 is organized around families of functions, with emphasis on linear, exponential, polynomial, quadratic, radical, and rational functions.  As students learn about each family of functions, they will learn to represent them in multiple ways.  They will also learn to model real-life situations using functions in order to solve problems arising from those situations.

This is a fifth-year mathematics course for the academic student.  Foundations of Calculus (Academic) is an advanced level of mathematics equivalent to a college freshman course.  This course will provide a foundation in calculus which deals with change and how the change in one quantity affects other quantities.  We will discuss many of the functions used in calculus and review techniques from pre-calculus used to obtain the graphs of functions, and to transform known functions into new functions.  This course will show students how to define and calculate limits, derivatives and integrals which are the three concepts that distinguish calculus from algebra and trigonometry.  The development of these topics will explore the connection of these mathematical concepts and the relationship to other subject areas.

This is a rigorous course for the accelerated student.  If students have completed four years of Honors Math with a high level of achievement, they should consider this course. This course is the standard first course in calculus for science, engineering and mathematics students.  Challenging for the able student, Honors Calculus meets many of the requirements for an AP course. Students with a high level of achievement may elect to, but are not expected to, take the AP exam for college credit.  These students would need to complete additional work outside of class to prepare for that exam. This course covers many similar concepts as AP Calculus AB but at a slower pace.


The possibility for college credit is available for this course, which follows the curriculum set by the University of Pittsburgh’s Analytic Geometry & Calculus 1 (Math 0220) course.  If students elect to register for the College in High School course (4 credits) they must pass an online placement exam and pay the registration fee. However, all students will learn the same content and take the same tests throughout the course, whether they are taking the course for college credit or not.  The only exception is the final exam – only CHS students will take the University of Pittsburgh Final exam.


NOTE: For students taking this course in grade 10 or grade 11, another Calculus course (3012 or 3022) may be taken prior to graduation. For a maximum number of credits earned in Calculus courses not to exceed 2.5 credits.

Because of the rigor and fast pace, only those students with a high level of achievement in previous math courses and the recommendation of the Honors Pre-Calculus Math teacher will be accepted.  The course will cover elementary functions, limits, derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions, and basic integration with some application to area and volume.  This course differs from course AP Calculus BC in that it is somewhat less rigorous, and because it meets only five periods per week, involves less homework and covers less material.

NOTE: For students taking this course in grades 10, 11, or 12, another Calculus course may have already been taken prior to this (3422) or (3022) may be taken after this. For a maximum number of credits earned in Calculus not to exceed 2.5 credits.

The course will cover elementary vector and parametric functions, rigorous definitions of limits, derivatives of algebraic, transcendental, vector and parametric functions, integration involving area, volume, trigonometric substitution and integration by parts and by partial fractions, and sequences and series. This course differs from course AP Calculus AB in that it meets seven periods per week, carries 1.5 credits, moves at a faster pace, is more rigorous, and involves more homework.

NOTE: For students taking this course in grade 11 or grade 12, another Calculus course (3422, 3012) may have already been taken. For a maximum number of credits earned in Calculus not to exceed 2.5 credits.
