The focus of Analytic Geometry on the coordinate plane is organized into 6 critical areas. Transformations on the coordinate plane provide opportunities for the formal study of congruence and similarity. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. The study of circles uses similarity and congruence to develop basic theorems relating circles and lines. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. Quadratic expressions, equations and functions are developed, comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships from Coordinate Algebra. Circles return with their quadratic algebraic representations on the coordinate plane. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. Additional information for this course can be found on the Georgia Department of Education Website.

Introduction to 2nd semester college physics

Explore different modes of writing by focusing heavily on the history and development of literature in America by reading short stories, novels, myths, poetry, drama, & nonfiction.  Students will also explore these genres in their own writing.  Writing will be done formally & informally, using the writing process: planning, drafting, revising, editing, & proofreading.  Students will also be expected to verbalize their findings in both oral & written responses to the literature we read.  Vocabulary & genre will be emphasized when being evaluated.  In addition to focusing on literature, this class will also examine informational texts, evaluating how we encounter these in our daily lives and the effect these have on society.

 In this course, we will discuss and analyze through written, verbal and non-verbal methods.  Presentation, discussion and collaboration are major components of this course, which includes Senior Project requirements.

 

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. 
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.” 

- Walt Whitman

Men do change, and change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass. ~ John Steinbeck

College prep Physics

Rotational Motion, Thermodynamics, Wave, electromagnetism,Modern Physics.

During the first semester of Physical Science S1, students learn about motion, the mechanic world around them and the different energies involved as well as the use of instrumentation to record data from simple and complex machines.  They will learn to become functional in the metric system which is critical in their study of science and in the world in general today.  

    

Second semester, in Physical Science S2, students will learn about the structure of matter that makes up the universe.  The students will learn the basic structure of the atom and the features and tendencies of the periodic table.  They will learn element symbols and how to use them in writing chemical formulas.  They will study chemical reactions and properties of solutions as they pertain to chemistry.

Introduction to anatomy and physiology of the human body. 

This is an introduction to economics course which combines the concepts of micro and macroeconomics.  There will be an emphasis on the free enterprise system of the United States and the global economy of the world. The course will introduce several economic terms and principles and better prepare the student to participate as productive citizens by making educated economic decisions. 

The Advanced Placement course in World History is designed to give students a global view of historical processes and contacts between people in different societies.  Students are expected to learn selective factual knowledge in addition to certain analytical skills.  Major interpretive issues among historians will be explored, as well as the techniques used in interpreting both primary historical evidence and secondary sources.  The course will be organized on a chronological basis beginning with the first civilization, with the development of major themes an integral part of the process.  Through class discussions, writing, and assigned reading, critical thinking skills and the ability to “think like a historian” will be taught and utilized.

 

The AP World History course will be challenging and rigorous, but also rewarding.  Attention will be given throughout the year to preparing students to be successful on the AP World History Exam given in May.  Success on this exam enables students to receive college credit for a required freshman World History course.  Good note-taking skills (both in class and while reading), organization, and study habits are essential for success on this exam and in the course, and proficiency in these areas will be assessed regularly.  To provide a tool for review and preparation for the AP exam, a notebook is required; this notebook should be a three-ring binder, with dividers for different sections of notes, assignments, and hand-outs.  Students must be willing to consistently allocate quality study time on a regular basis throughout the year in order to be successful in any AP course.  If your grade is more important to you than the learning experience, AP World History is not for you.

The Honors United States History course is designed to provide students with the analytic skills and factual knowledge necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in United States history.  The program prepares students for intermediate college courses by making demands upon them equivalent to those made by full year introductory college courses. Students should learn to assess historical materials – their relevance to a given interpretive problem, their reliability, and their importance – and to weight the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship.
