One credit One Year
Prerequisite: Common Core Algebra 2 with a Regents Exam grade of 75 or better or Common Core Algebra 2 Honors with a Regents Exam grade between 65 and 84
The course will continue the development of advanced functions. In addition, calculus will be introduced and will begin with limits and continue through differentiation. Graphing calculator required. This course ends with a school examination. There is a fee made payable directly to Molloy College. Upon successful completion, students can earn 3 college credits for this full year course.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT CALCULUS AB
One Credit One Year
Prerequisite: Math 4H/Math 4R and a course grade of 75 or higher
The traditional study of differential and integral calculus beginning with the study of functions and limits. This course prepares the students for the AB level Advanced Placement Exam. A minimum of 1 hour per night of studying is necessary. THE AB LEVEL ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAM IN MAY. Graphing calculator required.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT CALCULUS BC
One Credit One Year
Prerequisite: Math 4H and a course grade of 85 or higher
Completion of topics from Analytic Geometry and the requirements for the BC level of the Advanced Placement Calculus. A minimum of 1 hour per night of studying is necessary. THE BC ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAM IN MAY. Graphing calculator required.

COLLEGE STATISTICS (MOLLOY COLLEGE)
One Credit One Year
Prerequisite: A grade of 65 or better in Common Core Algebra 2 with a passing Regents Exam grade or PreCalculus
This course, given under the aegis of Molloy College, will provide students with the skills and knowledge in the field of introductory Statistics and is equivalent to a one semester college course. The course will cover an array of topics which include organization of data using tables and graphs, normal distribution, regression of linear and nonlinear relationships, probability models, discrete and continuous random variables, binomial distribution, tests of significance and the Chisquare procedure. There is a fee made payable directly to Molloy College. Upon successful completion, students can earn 3 college credits for this full year course

APPLIED CODING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES
Onehalf Credit OnehalfYear\
This course will focus on Java programming language. Students will learn this popular and fastgrowing programming language. This course follows a student centered, projectbased approach to software engineering with Java. This course will end in a Microsoft certificate exam (Exam 98388 Introduction to programming using Java) so students can become certified in Java. Ultimately, students will come away with not only the technical skills to grow in the field of computer science, but the problemsolving ability and creativity that companies are increasingly looking for.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT COMPUTER SCIENCE A
One Credit One Year
APCS is a fullyear course of study for 1 Math credit with Honors/AP track weighting. APCS covers topics that would normally comprise one semester of a college level Computer Science major. College credit may be granted based on the student’s performance on the May AP Exam. We will use the Java for Linux programming language as a vehicle to examine structured programming, methods, modular design, special algorithms and data structures.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT STATISTICS
One Credit One Year
AP Statistics is the high school equivalent of a one semester, introductory college statistics course. In this course, students develop strategies for collecting, organizing, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students design, administer, and tabulate results from surveys and experiments. Probability and simulations aid students in constructing models for chance phenomena. Sampling distributions provide the logical structure for confidence intervals and hypothesis tests.
Students use a TI83/84 graphing calculator and webbased java applets to investigate statistical concepts. To develop effective statistical communications skills, students are required to prepare frequent written and oral analyses of real data. A minimum of 1 hour of studying per night is necessary. THE AP STATISTICS PLACEMENT EXAM IN MAY. Graphing calculator required.
