This course uses an incremental approach to teach advanced algebra, geometry, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, and mathematical analysis. Word problems are developed throughout the problem sets and become progressively more elaborate.

With this practice, high-school level students will be able to solve challenging problems such as rate problems and work problems involving abstract quantities. A thorough study of Euclidean geometry is also included.

This course will prepare students for college entrance exams such as the ACT and the SAT.
