This course emphasizes statistical and financial applications, and it prepares students to use algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and discrete mathematics to model a range of situations and solve problems. This course will use all the mathematical skills and concepts you have acquired over the years and apply this knowledge to real world applications.

AP Biology Review Course

This course is a 36-week course for students taking the College Board’s Advanced Placement Computer Science A exam. Assignments are contained as modules on an internet based course management system called “moodle”. Every module has an assignment dealing with the GridWorld case study, a hands-on lab, and a programming assignment. The computer language that will be used is Java, which is a free download for either a Macintosh or a Windows platform.  The editor is BlueJ, also a free download.

The purpose of the AP course is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes: 1. Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns 2. Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study 3. Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation 4. Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses

This is the third course for the Engineering and Technology Education Pathway.  Students have opportunities to apply engineering design as they develop solutions for technological problems.  Students use applications of mathematics and science to predict the success of engineered solutions and complete hands-on activities with tools, materials, and processes as they develop working drawings and prototypes.

Honors biology is the scientific study of living things.  Welcome to Ms. Castleberry's class!
