Stephen Barbarossa

Theology Teacher
Titles: AP Calculus Math Teacher

In a minimum of three years of study, students will develop critical thinking and problem solving skills and apply those to real world situations. The focus of the Mathematics department is for students to grow in their understanding of mathematical skills and concepts. Students must successfully pass Algebra 2 as part of their three year program, four years of Mathematics are recommended. Pre-Calculus and Calculus are recommended for students planning a Math or Science college major.

Courses

MA0921 - PRE-ALGEBRA (FULL YEAR)

This course is designed for students who do not possess the skills to enter a high school Algebra 1 course. It focuses on building number sense, operations with fractions and decimals, order of operations, area and perimeter, measurement, and problem solving. Students will be introduced to linear equations, graphing, and inequalities.

MA0903 - ALGEBRA 1 (FULL YEAR)

A first course in Algebra that teaches and develops a systematic approach to problem solving. It begins with a review of skills related to variables, exponents, order of operations, simplifying and evaluating algebraic expressions, and properties of equality. Then the course will examine linear equations, inequalities, systems of linear equations, factoring, and quadratic functions.

**NCAA Approved

MA0917 - ALGEBRA 1 (FULL YEAR)

This course is designed for students who would benefit from a slower-paced Algebra class. The material covered in this course is the same as MA0903, with an emphasis on solidifying Pre-Algebra skills such as the use of properties of equality, simplifying numerical expressions, and writing algebraic expressions to model situations.

**NCAA Approved

MA1001 - HONORS GEOMETRY (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: A in MA0917; permission of math instructor.

This honors course is designed for students with exceptional algebra skills. This accelerated course will cover the same topics as MA1003 but more in depth and at a brisker pace. It will also include the study of coordinate geometry.

**NCAA Approved

MA1003 - GEOMETRY (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: C or higher in MA0903; or A in MA0917; permission of math instructor.

This course focuses on points, lines, planes & angles, reasoning & proofs, parallel & perpendicular lines, congruence & similarity of polygons, trigonometry, and area & volume.

**NCAA Approved

MA1005 - GEOMETRY (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: C or higher in MA0917; permission of math instructor.

This course is designed for students who would benefit from a slower-paced geometry course. The material covered is the same as MA1003, with an emphasis on fostering skill building while learning the fundamentals of Geometry.

**NCAA Approved

MA1101 - INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA/TRIG (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: C or higher in MA0917 and MA1005; permission of math instructor.

**NCAA Approved

MA1129 - PRE-CALCULUS (Math 120 UW 5 Credits) (HONORS) (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: B or higher in MA1128 or A in MA1103 and permission of math instructor.

This course covers basic properties of functions and graphs with an emphasis on linear, quadratic, trigonometric, exponential functions and their inverses. Emphasis placed on multi-step problem solving through complex word problems. Students may opt to take this course for 5 credits from the University of Washington. Scientific calculator required.

**NCAA Approved

MA1201 - CALCULUS (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: B or higher in MA1129 or A in MA1201; or permission of math instructor.

This course covers limits; derivatives and antiderivatives; indefinite and definite integrals; the calculus of exponential and logarithmic functions; growth and decay; plane and solid figures; and the calculus of motion. Graphing calculator required (TI 83 or TI 84).

**NCAA Approved

MA1207 - AP CALCULUS AB (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: B or higher in MA1129 or A in MA1201 and permission of math instructor.

In this AP course, which is comparable to a college level Calculus course, students will study the mechanics and applications of limits, derivatives, integrals, and separable differential equations. Students will take the AP Exam in the Spring with the possibility of college credits available. Graphing calculator required (TI 83 or TI 84).

**NCAA Approved

MA1207 - AP CALCULUS BC (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: Successful completion of AP Calculus AB and permission of math instructor.

AP Calculus BC is designed to develop mathematical knowledge conceptually, guiding the student to connect topics and representations throughout the course and to apply strategies and techniques to accurately solve diverse types of problems. Calculus BC reviews the concepts in Calculus AB, adding additional topics. It is designed to qualify students for credit in a college course which is one level beyond Calculus AB. Students will take the AP Exam in the Spring.

**NCAA Approved

MA1220 - AP STATISTICS (FULL YEAR)

Prerequisites: B or higher in MA1107 and permission of math instructor.
