Curricular Philosophy

The mathematics curriculum at Pacific Collegiate School prepares students for AP Calculus BC by the 12th grade, if they enter in 7th grade ready for Pre-Algebra. Many students will learn Calculus in 11th grade, some in 10th. At all levels of instruction, there is attention to: judicious use of the graphing calculator, including elementary programming; familiarity with a library of elementary functions; obtaining solutions analytically, numerically, and graphically; the development of rigorous mathematical exposition and argument; and applications in other courses, especially in science.
The course sequence includes: Pre-Algebra; Algebra 1; Algebra 2; Geometry, Pre-Calculus including Trigonometry; and AP Calculus BC. The content of each course follows the recommendations of UC and CSU for academic preparation in mathematics, and the most current California State Content Standards.
