(a-g) / Graduation Requirement
Grade Level: 12
Grade Restrictions: 12th grade only
Prerequisites: Teacher Recommendation / Scored Conditionally ready on the SBAC or received a low “B” or “C” grade in Math III
Designed for seniors, this course revisits previous mathematics concepts such as linear, quadratic and exponential functions, to provide opportunities to strengthen students’ mathematics foundation, develop a greater perspective of the underlying structures of mathematics, and see how mathematical topics are connected. Quantitative reasoning skills needed for success in college-level courses or the workplace are developed utilizing real-life applications, working with polynomial and rational functions, basic calculus concepts, and the mathematics of finance.
A letter grade of C or better in the second semester of this course (a UCOP designated Advanced Mathematics course) validates the entire high school college preparatory requirement.
