71 Mathematics Course Guide The Mathematics Department offers sequences in academic and honors/advanced placement mathematics that give students opportunities ranging from meeting the minimum three years of mathematics study and state graduation requirements to preparing for or participating in college-level mathematical study. All students must take a course in both algebra and geometry and then go on to complete their mathematics study with a second level of algebra, pre-calculus, and/or calculus. In addition, Advanced Placement and college-level courses are offered in calculus and/or statistics as part of the College Pathways Dual Enrollment Program. For those students who do not score at the proficient level on state standardized tests, a supplementary lab course may be taken in addition to Algebra II Essentials at the high school. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in a mathematics course in each year of their high school experience as a way of adequately preparing for the college placement as well as their future endeavors. Currently, nearly ninety-seven percent of twelfth graders at East Brunswick High School take a fourth year of mathematics. Because of the sequential nature of mathematics offerings, many courses have prerequisites. In addition, some science courses have mathematics prerequisites. Students need to be aware of the prerequisites for each course and of the grade requirements for continuing in a course sequence. In general, a student needs to receive at least a B- in a given course to remain on that course track. Please see the preceding page for the possible sequence of courses that a student might follow in mathematics from grade 8 through grade 12. *A waiver form, signed by the Mathematics Supervisor or Mathematics Department Chairperson must be used for any variations. These include enrolling in two mathematics courses in one academic year at EBHS or to waive pre-requisites. Waiver forms are provided by your School Counselor and are due on or before April 13, 2018 in order to be accepted for the following year.
