INTRO TO MATRICES AND LINEAR ALGEBRA (11,12) 1 CREDIT
West Chester Area School District
data from men’s and women’s sports and identify relationships between variables and discuss randomness, probability and sampling distributions. This course is designed to include critical thinking, mathematical modeling, statistical & predictive analysis, optimization and simulation. These skills will be applied to various elements of sports, but are equally useful in many other areas and careers.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2
ADVANCED PLACEMENT STATISTICS (10, 11, 12) 1 CREDIT As an introduction to the concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing,
and drawing conclusions from data in preparation for the Advanced Placement examination in Statistics, topics include exploring data (observing patterns and departures from patterns), planning a study (deciding what and how to measure), anticipating patterns (producing models using probability theory and simulations), and statistical inference (confirming models). Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2
This dual enrollment course is offered in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh through their College in High School program and follows the curriculum for their Math 280 course. It intends to further prepare students for studies in the areas of mathematics, engineering, computer science, physics, and related fields with applied topics that highlight vectors, matrices, determinants, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors. The course will be taught at one of the WCASD high schools by WCASD teaching staff. Students successfully completing the dual enrollment requirements will receive three college credits from University of Pittsburgh. Tuition and fees are to be determined.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of AP Calculus BC with a 4 or higher on the AP Calculus BC exam
INTRO TO STATISTICS & FINANCIAL LITERACY CAREER & COLLEGE PREP (12)
As an introduction to mathematical concepts that are typically covered in a first-year liberal arts college-level mathematics course, statistical topics will include the collecting and analyzing of data with an emphasis on spreadsheet manipulation. Additional topics vary and may include a study of number theory, logic, sets and set theory, probability, mathematical modeling and problem solving. Financial Literacy will be an additional focus of the curriculum throughout the year. This course is offered at a pace and level of rigor that varies significantly from Statistics Honors.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Geometry STATISTICS HONORS (10, 11, 12)
Blended learning class - 4 days in-class/ 1 day online learning Designed to introduce students to the concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data, topics include exploring and understanding data, exploring relationships between variables, gathering data, randomness and probability. The concept of sampling and the properties of sampling distributions are studied as a foundation to inferential statistics. This course will not prepare students to take the Advanced Placement Statistics examination.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 2
STATISTICS HONORS THROUGH SPORTS ANALYTICS (10, 11, 12)
Blended learning class - 4 days in-class/ 1 day online learning This course will cover the same set of topics and standards as Statistics Honors while focusing on the use of data and quantitative methods to measure performance and decision-making processes in the world of sports. Students will collect and analyze
CONCERT BAND (9, 10, 11, 12) Neutrally Weighted
Students who play band instruments have the opportunity to perform many styles of band literature from the classical to contemporary period. The development of musical knowledge, instrument performance skills, and self-discipline - while working together as a unified ensemble - are important factors of Concert Band. Group lessons are scheduled on a rotating schedule during school hours. Various ensembles (e.g. woodwind quintet and brass choir) provide opportunities for the more talented and interested student to explore, discover and perform different styles of music. Home practice is essential.
Prerequisites: Basic command of a band instrument meeting high school curriculum requirements, and recommendation by the middle school band director.
HONORS WIND ENSEMBLE (9, 10, 11, 12)
Select students who play band instruments at a high level are provided the opportunity to perform many styles of advanced band literature from the classical and contemporary periods. Group lessons are scheduled on a rotating schedule during school hours. Various ensembles - e.g. woodwind quintet, and brass choir - provide opportunities for the more talented and interested student to explore, discover and perform different styles of music. Home practice is essential.
Prerequisites: High command of a band instrument meeting curriculum requirements, balanced instrumentation, and a successful audition by the director.
JAZZ LAB BAND (9, 10, 11, 12) Neutrally Weighted
This ensemble provides interested and talented jazz instrumentalists an opportunity to perform music in the style of influential jazz pioneers. The focus of this ensemble is to develop beginning jazz musicians into intermediate jazz performers. Music selections such as: Blues, Swing, Latin, Fusion, and Rock may be included in the Jazz Lab Band’s repertoire. Beginning study of improvisation is also part of the Jazz Lab Band curriculum. Home practice is essential.
Prerequisites: A basic command of a jazz band instrument meeting curriculum requirements and successful audition by the director and appropriate instrumentation for Jazz Band music (doubling parts if necessary). Student must participate in Concert Band or Honors Wind Ensemble to become a member of Jazz Lab Band (exceptions are: piano, guitar or bass students).
