**Prerequisite - Algebra II**

This course provides students with the use of real-world applications related to probability, statistics, data analysis, functions, geometry, and trigonometry. Students will master the following content: discretionary expenses, banking services, consumer credit, automobile ownership, independent living, and the stock market. Upon completion of the course, students will be prepared for technical training, a range of career options, and college majors not math-intensive. The use of various mathematics technology is necessary.

**Credit – 1**

**Prerequisite - Pre-Calculus**

This course is the foundation for a college Calculus I course. Students will master the following content: limits and continuity; derivative techniques for polynomial, rational, trigonometric, exponential, and natural logarithmic functions; definite integral techniques for polynomial, rational, and trigonometric functions; real-world applications of differentiation through related rates, optimization, and particle motion; the area between two curves, and accumulation of change. The use of various mathematics technology is necessary.

**Prerequisite - Pre-Calculus**

**Required Summer Assignments**

This course is the equivalent of a college Calculus I course. Students will master the following content: limits and continuity; derivative techniques for polynomial, rational, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and inverse functions; definite integral techniques for polynomial, rational, and trigonometric functions; real-world applications of differentiation through related rates, optimization, and particle motion; area between two curves, accumulation of change, volumes of solids; differential equations and slope fields. Technology is an integral part of this course. The TI-84 Plus CE Edition is the calculator of choice. This course will prepare students to take the College Board Advanced Placement Calculus AB Exam.

**Prerequisite – Algebra II**

The AP Statistics course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes evident in the content, skills, and assessment in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, probability and simulation, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding. The AP Statistics course is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics.

**Credit – 1**

**Prerequisite – Designated by DTCC**

This course is designed to help students develop quantitative literacy skills which will be meaningful for their professional, civic, and personal life. An emphasis is placed on utilizing data to make good decisions and an understanding of the dangers inherent in basing decisions on anecdotal evidence rather than data. Students will focus on numbers, ratios, proportional reasoning, modeling, probability, and statistics. The learners will also investigate math problems helping them see how math fits into their world and enhance their skills at using mathematical reasoning to understand complex situations and make decisions. This course requires a discounted fee towards earning three college credit.
