What courses are considered "Advanced Mathematics"?

Advanced mathematics includes the following: trigonometry, trigonometry/algebra, trigonometry/analytic geometry, trigonometry/math analysis, analytic geometry, math analysis, math analysis/analytic geometry, probability and statistics, and pre-calculus.

  • Trigonometry courses prepare students for eventual work in calculus, and typically include the following topics: Trigonometric and circular functions; their inverses and graphs; relations among the parts of a triangle; trigonometric identities and equations; solutions of right and oblique triangles; and complex numbers.
  • Analytic geometry courses include the study of the nature and intersection of lines and planes in space.
  • Math analysis courses include the study of polynomial, logarithmic, exponential, and rational functions and their graphs; vectors; set theory; Boolean algebra and symbolic logic; mathematical induction; matrix algebra; sequences and series; and limits and continuity.
  • Probability and statistics courses introduce the study of likely events and the analysis, interpretation, and presentation of quantitative data.
  • Pre-calculus courses combine the study of trigonometry, elementary functions, analytic geometry, and math analysis topics as preparation for calculus.
