Algebra I Review

June 8 – June 24: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.   

Please see the full description under Non-credit classes.

Algebra II

June 8 – July 15: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

Algebra 2 is the third course in the Common Core Traditional Pathway. Major topics include functions and how to build them, modeling with linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, radical and rational functions, basic trigonometry, series and sequences, and statistics and probability.

Jesuit Students: This course is designed to remediate and cannot be taken by Jesuit students for advancement to Precalculus. Jesuit students must obtain prior department approval.
Non-Jesuit students: Completion of Algebra I and Geometry OR Integrated Math 1 and 2. Please be sure to consult with the Academic Counselors at your school to be sure that this course is a good fit for you and that they will accept our credits.

Geometry

June 8 – July 15: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

Geometry is the second course in the Common Core Traditional Pathway. As a comprehensive course in Euclidean plane and solid geometry, the class examines the elemental geometric figures: line, angle, triangle, polygon and circle. Additional topics include geometric proofs, properties of parallel and perpendicular lines, congruence, area and volume, similarity, basic trigonometry, constructions, and transformations.

Pre-requisite:
Jesuit students: Sophomore standing in the Fall. Jesuit students must obtain prior department approval.
​Non-Jesuit students: Successful completion of Algebra I OR Integrated Math 1 with a grade of A- or better. Please be sure to consult with the Academic Counselors at your school to be sure that this course is a good fit for you and that they will accept our credits.

Geometry XL

June 8 – July 15: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

The course has the same goals and objectives as the full-year course of Geometry XL. Content includes all topics from Geometry as well as additional emphasis on formal deductive proof, applications to geometric figures, construction and inductive reasoning. Grade of A in Algebra I or Integrated Math 1 is a prerequisite for this course.

Pre-requisite:
Jesuit students: Sophomore standing in the Fall. Jesuit students must obtain prior Math Department Approval. Incoming Freshmen students may not register for this course without taking the Challenge Exam and prior approval from the Math Department. 
Non-Jesuit students: Successful completion of Algebra I OR Integrated Math 1 with a grade of A or better. Please be sure to consult with the Academic Counselors at your school to be sure that this course is a good fit for you and that they will accept our credits.

Pre-Calculus

June 8 – July 15: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

This 6-week course prepares students for Calculus by introducing and reinforcing algebraic skills required for success in that course. The first three weeks will focus on simplifying expressions, solving equations and inequalities, functions, graphing, transformations, higher degree polynomial functions, and inverse functions. The last three weeks will focus on transcendental functions (exponential and logarithmic) and trigonometry. Students will learn and apply fundamental identities and the Unit Circle to a variety of problems, apply transformations to graph trigonometric functions. Building upon that, students will be expected to apply other trigonometric identities (addition/subtraction, double & half angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum) to solve a variety of problems. The course concludes with inverse trig functions, applying the laws of sines and cosines, vectors, and representing complex numbers in trigonometric form.

Pre-Requisites for Jesuit Students: Open to current 11th-grade students earning an A in regular Algebra 2 or B in Algebra 2H and subject to instructor approval. The course may also be taken to remediate a Pre-Calculus grade earned during the regular academic year.

Pre-Requisites for Non-Jesuit Students: Must have successfully completed Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3. Please be sure to consult with the Academic Counselors at your school to be sure that this course is a good fit for you and that they will accept our credits.
