﻿ Mentor Club Programs # Programs in Mathematics

 PreAlgebra  The PreAlgebra course will prepare students to extend their elementary skills and begin to learn algebra concepts that serve as a transition into formal algebra and geometry. Emphasis will be placed on word problem solving.
 Algebra I  The Algebra I course is the foundation for high school mathematics. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. Emphasis will be placed on word problems and challenge problems solving.
 Geometry  The Geometry course is to relate concepts from Algebra I and Algebra II to geometric phenomena. It covers logical proof and critical thinking when solving problems or evaluating arguments. It is a foundation for PreCalculus, analytic geometry, and higher-level courses.
 Algebra II/Trigonometry  The Algebra II/Trigonometry course complements and expands the mathematical content and concepts of Algebra I and Geometry. It will provide students with a strong foundation in the practical and theoretical applications of polynomials, inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions, rational functions, matrices, conic sections, and transcendental functions. It is a prerequisite for PreCalculus, probability and statistics, and business math which build on the concepts of advanced algebra and trigonometry. Extra challenge problems solving will be practiced.
 PreCalculus/Math Analysis  The PreCalculus/Math Analysis course completes the formal study of the elementary functions begun in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. Special attention will be given to polynomial, rational, logarithmic, exponential, and trigonometric functions. Additional topics essential to calculus include polar coordinates, complex numbers, analytic geometry, and an introduction to limits and continuity.
 AP Calculus  The AP Calculus course focuses on developing the students' understanding the concepts of calculus and provide experience with its methods and applications. The courses emphasize a multi-representational approach to calculus, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. TI83/84 calculator will be used. Additional practice exams for AB/BC will be given to students.
 AP Statistics  The AP Statistics course introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and draw conclusions from data. It is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus based, college course in statistics. They include four broad conceptual themes: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference.
 AMC 8/10/12 and AIME This program is for student of G5 to G12. For mathematically gifted students who would like to have more challenge in mathematics. This program is to help to enhance the student's math problem solving capability. This program will help students in future standard test (such as SAT I and II math test). It will further prepare students for nationwide math contests (AMC 8/10/12, AIME, and more).
