This non college preparatory course has specifically been designed as a parallel support course to assist students with the Algebra A course and to prepare students to take the general mathematics ninth grade mathematics test. Students enrolled in this class will have a specialized program dealing customized to their math needs using the Accelerated Mathematics Program. (5 units each semester)

**Algebra I P: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

Algebra I is a college preparatory course aligned to the California Algebra I standards and designed for capable mathematics students. This course uses a modern approach that stresses mathematical structure. Topics such as linear equations, quadratic equations, functions, inequalities, polynomials, and linear graphing are studied.

An Algebra I student should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully completed all previous math courses. A recommendation from the student's current math teacher in middle school will indicate the student has the motivation and sufficient mastery of math skills necessary to be successful in Algebra I.

**SEI Algebra I P: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This college preparatory course offers a hands-on, interactive instructional approach designed specifically for students of limited English proficiency preparing for college attendance. Concepts found in Algebra I P are covered with visual and language support when needed.

**Geometry P: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

Geometry P is aligned to the California State Standards and is a college preparatory mathematics course for ninth through twelfth grade students. Students enrolling in Geometry should have successfully completed both semesters of Algebra 1P or both years of Algebra A and Algebra B, and have a good understanding of Algebra I concepts.

This is an advanced mathematics course covering such topics as logic and reasoning, constructions: properties of plane closed figures and three dimensional figures, congruence, and similarity.** SEI Geometry P: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This college preparatory course offers a hands-on, interactive instructional approach designed specifically for students of limited English proficiency preparing for college attendance. Concepts found in Geometry P are covered with visual and language support where needed.

**Geometry HP: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This course will provide students of demonstrated high math ability a more thorough and extended study of geometry concepts. The same required concepts of Geometry P will be learned with, as time permits, opportunities for enrichment in such areas as multiple-step problem-solving, detailed proofs, and mathematical theory. This course will challenge the student and provide a background for advanced mathematics.

**Algebra II P: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

Algebra II is an advanced mathematics course for serious math students. Algebra II students should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully learned skills in Algebra I and Geometry. A recommendation by students' Geometry teacher will indicate the student has sufficient math skills necessary to be successful in Algebra II. Topics include problem solving and graphing with both linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, combinations, permutations, logarithms, arithmetic and geometric progressions, and complex numbers.

** SEI Algebra II P: Grades 9-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This course has the same description as Algebra IIP except the instructional approach is specifically designed for English Language Learners preparing for college attendance.

**Algebra II HP: Grades 10-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This course is designed for students who have excelled in prior college preparatory algebra and geometry coursework. It covers the same concepts as Algebra II. However, in addition, enrichment will be provided in such areas as number patterns, probability, logic, use of graphic calculators, three-dimensional figures and computer applications. This course will provide the challenge and necessary background for advanced study in mathematics.

**Pre-Calculus P: Grades 10-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This course is designed to prepare students to take advanced mathematics courses in college (generally Calculus) or to take the Calculus course offered at Eisenhower. Pre-Calculus students should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully learned skills in Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. A recommendation by the student's Algebra II teacher will indicate the student has sufficient mastery of the math skills necessary to be successful in Pre-Calculus.

** Pre-Calculus HP: Grades 10-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

This college preparatory honors course aligned to the California State Standard and allows honors Pre-Calculus students a logical placement in a mathematics course geared toward successful completion of AP Calculus their senior year.

**Statistics AP: Grades 11-12 ( 2 semesters) CSU/UC**

The AP Statistics course is an option for any student who has completed Algebra II. It’s main purpose is to introduce the students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. This course is recommended for students who plan to major in college in the areas of engineering, psychology, sociology, health science and business. This course is aligned to the California AP Statistics Standards and the College Board AP Statistics Outline (5 units each semester). Students are expected to take the Advanced Placement Examination in May, which may enable them to receive college credit in Calculus.

**Calculus P: Grades 10-12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

Calculus students should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully learned skills in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Pre-Calculus. A recommendation by the student's Pre-Calculus teacher will indicate the student has sufficient mastery of the math skills necessary to successful in Calculus. This is a college level course covering both differential and integral calculus and is aligned to the California State Standards. This is not an advanced placement course.

**Calculus AP : Grade 12 (2 semesters) CSU/UC**

Calculus students should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully learned skills in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Pre-Calculus. A recommendation by the student's Pre-Calculus teacher will indicate the student has sufficient mastery of the math skills necessary to be successful in Calculus. This is a college level course covering both differential and integral calculus. Students are expected to take the Advanced Placement Examination in May which may enable them to receive college credit in Calculus.

These are San Bernardino Valley Community College courses which may be taken by Eisenhower College Academy students in place of an Algebra IP, Algebra IIP, or Geometry P (respectively) course at Eisenhower High School.
