数学 & 计算机科学

College Prep’s math program is problem based and student centered.
Using an approach that integrates the traditional areas of mathematics—algebra, 几何, 三角函数, 有关微积分的知识, 以及微积分——贯穿于六个连续的学习阶段, students become independent learners who excel in reading, 写作, 探索, 应用, 交流数学概念.
  • Algebra is foundational as a modeling and 解决问题 tool
  • Geometry in two and three dimensions is integrated across topics at all levels and includes coordinate and transformational approaches
  • 向量的研究, 矩阵, 计数, 数据分析, and other topics from discrete mathematics is woven into core courses
  • Computer-based and calculator-based activities are part of core courses
  • 主题探索视觉,象征和口头
  • The capacity to develop 解决问题 strategies depends on an accumulated body of knowledge

  • 数学5和5i

    These courses are equivalent to differential and integral calculus at the college level. Topics include 技术 and applications of derivatives and integrals, L 'Hôpital法则的各种应用, 无穷级数的收敛性检验, 麦克劳林和泰勒多项式和级数. 数学5i涵盖了极曲线的微积分.
  • 数学6

    这门多变量微积分课程从工具开始, 技术, 以及线性代数的概念, emphasizing linear algebraic systems (together with matrix wizardry) to generalize toward underlying abstract structures: vector spaces, 线性映射, 以及线性代数的基本定理. 后面的主题包括内积和规范, 正交性(包括Gram-Schmidt分解), 勒让德多项式), eigenvalues and singular values (including the spectral theorem, the Schur decomposition and Jordan canonical form) as well as applications such as minimization and least squares, 数据拟合与插值, 傅里叶级数, 迭代, 动力学(微分方程组).
  • 抽象代数

    This course introduces students to the beauty and whimsy of abstraction without losing track of algebra’s practical roots. 使用证明, students learn how to generalize the basic rules of addition and multiplication to objects other than usual numbers and how those rules give structure to collections of objects. 主题包括结构,如向量空间, 组, 环, 字段, and their applications to coding theory and public-key cryptography, 对称, 几何结构, 和伽罗瓦理论.


The College Prep 计算机科学 program allows for beginning through advanced opportunities to study foundational 计算机科学 principles and concepts through the lens of Python, an ideal first programming language whose versatility makes it an excellent choice for a wide variety of applications. The introductory course (CS1) is a deep dive into programming, building a foundation in the general constructs of languages. 处于中级水平, 基于项目的课程(CS2), students apply their programming skills to build embedded system prototypes using microcontrollers—such as Arduinos and Raspberry Pis, 传感器, 以及其他电子产品. The advanced course (CS3) focuses on data science, analysis, and modeling.


  • CS1:计算机科学基础

    这门课程揭示了计算机是如何工作的, 数据是如何在世界范围内被操纵和移动的, and teaches proficiency in the Python programming language through hands-on labs and projects. The course introduces 解决问题 strategies that help students debug, 反思, 改进他们的工作. Students build and showcase their skills through pair programming, 互动模块, 以及一系列合作编程的机会.
  • CS2:使用Python进行计算机编程

    This course focuses on fundamental concepts of computer programming: abstraction, 算法, 效率, 数据操作. 主题包括编程中使用的变量, Boolean logic and the use of conditional statements to control the flow of a program, 还有循环以及如何应用递归来解决问题. Students use functions to perform tasks that break a complex problem into smaller pieces that are easier to solve. The course introduces object-oriented programming in which students learn how to use objects and classes to provide a clear structure to their code, 让它更容易阅读, 理解, 和调试. Coding skills are honed on a series of individual and group projects. As a final project, students work in 组 to design and create their own text adventure game.
  • CS3:数据科学

    This course equips students with the tools and skills of a data scientist. 学生学习收集和清理原始数据, explore different data visualization tools that make it easier to see and 理解 trends, 并学会分析他们的数据, transforming and modeling it to draw conclusions and inform decision-making.

I’ve wanted to be a math teacher since I was in high school. 数学有时被认为是一门严肃的学科, but I always look for unexpected moments that will captivate the students, 或者逗他们笑. 它重置了课堂,对我们所有人都很有吸引力.
