    In addition to reviewing and expanding on the material in Algebra I, this rigorous, fast-paced, full-credit course covers complex numbers; polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions; systems in two and three variables; sequences and series; introductory trigonometry; introductory probability; and applications of all of these topics. Instruction will emphasize multiple representations of concepts, including a strong expectation of technology use (graphing calculators and dynamic Web-based tools). Daily sessions will combine independent, group, and instructor-led work sessions. Students will be expected to complete additional work at home in preparation for each class. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department chair prior to taking this course for academic credit. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit.
  • Geometry (Full Credit) – REMOTE FORMAT

    Geometry is a full-credit course in Euclidean plane and solid geometry, designed for strong mathematics students. The daily schedule of this fast-paced course will consist of group sessions with the instructor and independent student work sessions. Each day’s work is roughly equivalent to a week of classes during the regular school year, so missing class due to trips out of town or other events is strongly discouraged. Students will also be expected to do additional work at home each day. Hawken students must have permission from the Math Department chair prior to taking this course for academic credit. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. This remote class will be a combination of synchronous (online) and asynchronous (independent) work, and students are expected to begin synchronous attendance at 9:00 am each morning.
