Students are initially introduced to: one-step, two-step, and multiple-step equations; factoring simple one variable equations; substituting values for various unknowns; rates and proportions; percent problems; combining various math concepts in solving real-world problems.
Algebra I students are ready to learn: functions, linear functions and equations, systems of equations and inequalities, exponents and polynomials, different methods of factoring polynomials, quadratic functions and equations, data analysis and probability and introduction to complex numbers.
As the culmination of their language studies, students read challenging and diverse material and are also given freedom to choose their own topics of inquiry. Students will write essays and other short works, both fiction and non-fiction, for each section with the goal of creating arguments that synthesize their readings, discussions, and research and clarify their individual ideas about each theme/topic.
American Studies is a course analyzing the history of the American nation from its origins to the present. At the conclusion of the course students will have a ready command of the details of American history, allowing them both the historical perspective to comment on original documents as well as inform their thinking regarding current issues.
Critical Writing is a two-session course designed to help students understand practical approaches to critical analysis, research, and the application of critical thinking to reading and writing.
Algebra II students are ready to learn: quadratic functions and applications; polynomial functions and applications; exponential and logarithmic functions and applications, rational and radical functions; probability, data analysis and statistics; and sequence and series.
Pre-Calculus takes the concepts and skills from Algebra II and extends both depth and application. Calculus is the mathematical study of continuous change. This class will provide an introduction to some foundational Calculus concepts and should prepare you for any College Algebra course as well to go on into Calculus.
Trigonometry is a branch of mathematics that studies relationships involving lengths and angles of triangles. Trig students are ready to learn: trigonometric functions, trigonometric graphs and identities, advanced forms of geometry, and real world applications.
In Conceptual Physics students investigate the interaction of matter and energy in a variety of methods, focusing on the concepts, rather than the math, involved with these interactions. The course begins with an introduction to the scientific method and Newtonian mechanics. It then follows with thermodynamics and proceeds to electromagnetism. At the end, the students have a choice of a variety of topics including modern physics, a more intense look at mechanics focusing on rotational motion, or optics.
Biology is a laboratory science course in which students investigate a wide range of topics including cells, cell transport and reproduction, genetics, DNA, evolution, and ecology. Students will have an opportunity to participate in various laboratory activities and dissections throughout the course.
Chemistry is a laboratory science course in which students investigate the composition of matter and the physical and chemical changes it undergoes. Guided and open-ended laboratory investigations will form a large component of the course.
The AP Physics 1 Course has been designed by the College Board as a course equivalent to the algebra-based college-level physics class. At the end of the course, students will take the AP Physics 1 exam, which will test their knowledge of both the concepts taught in the classroom and their use of the correct formulas.
This course will provide students with knowledge of the history of state of Oklahoma.
This course will provide students with knowledge of the United States government that will enable them to participate effectively in civic life in America. Students will examine fundamental constitutional principles; the organization of government at the federal, state, and local level; the rights and responsibilities of citizenship; the policy-making process; political parties and elections; comparative government and foreign policy; and the American economic system.
AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. With a unique focus on creative problem solving and real-world applications, AP Computer Science Principles prepares students for college and career. All students taking AP courses are encouraged to take the AP exam.
Google’s Android OS runs 86% of smartphones worldwide and has shipped over one billion units this past year alone. Meanwhile, the search for talented Android developers continues, making it one of the most in-demand software development skills today.
Students will be introduced to Programming. The curriculum exposes students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they build artifacts in Python. Students will accomplish a Capstone project at the end of this session.
Students will be introduced to Computer Science through the blocking programming and website development. The curriculum exposes students to all seven "Big Ideas" from the "Computer Science Principles" framework as they build artifacts in Scratch and Thimble.
This course introduces the basics of American Sign Language (ASL) and is designed for students who have little or no previous knowledge of ASL. Students will focus on learning the ASL alphabet, basic vocabulary, grammar structure, fingerspelling, commands, and ASL questions. Students will be given the opportunity to develop both receptive and expressive skills in order to hold a beginning-level conversation with deaf/hard-of-hearing native users of ASL. An awareness of the history and culture of deaf people, as well as information on deaf role models, are included in the course.
This course builds upon the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing learned in Spanish I through activities, projects, and lessons from our curriculum (Avancemos II) and other sources that focus on these four skills.
This course assumes no prior Spanish knowledge and teaches students to listen, speak, read and write Spanish on an elementary level. This is accomplished through activities, projects, and lessons from a variety of sources and experiences that focus on these four skills.
French I focuses on the development of reading, writing, listening and speaking activities through vocabulary, grammar, and culture. This course is designed for students with little or no knowledge of French language or culture. The textbook used is Bon Voyage! Level I, and there is a penpal component to the course.
French II continues to develop basic concepts learned in French I including pronunciation, grammar, and culture. This course is designed for students who have completed French I. We will work with the Glencoe textbook Bon Voyage! Level II, and there is a penpal component to the course.
