Session I Course Offerings at Overland High School

Monday, June 5th – Friday, June 23rd 

8:00 a.m. – 12:20 p.m.

ALGEBRA I (completed 9, 10, or 11) - The study of algebraic symbolism, systems of equations, graphing, problem solving, probability and statistics.  The students will build upon their previous knowledge to further understand the characteristics and representations of various functions and relations, including first-degree equations and inequalities, polynomials, exponential and radical expressions, and quadratic equations.

3SSALG1S1 – Semester 1 - Equations and Inequalities, Numeric Expressions, Algebraic Expressions, Exploring Quadratic Functions in Context

3SSALG1S2 – Semester 2 - Structure of Quadratic Functions, Modeling with Quadratic Functions, Linear and Exponential Functions, Statistics

ALGEBRA II (completed 10 or 11) – Study real and complex numbers, as well as relations, functions and their operations. Students will work with linear, quadratic, and higher-order polynomial, radical, rational, absolute value, exponential/ logarithmic functions, including graphing and transformations of graphs.  The counting principle, probability, and statistics are also covered.

3SSALG2S1 – Semester 1 - Functions with unrestricted domains: polynomial functions – key features of graphs (end behavior, relative min/max, intervals where increasing/decreasing, etc.); zeros/factors relationship (including Remainder Theorem and synthetic division of polynomials); geometric series; function operations (including composition of functions); transformations on functions; inverse functions; complex numbers

3SSALG2S2 – Semester 2 - Functions with restricted domains:  rational functions, radical functions, exponential functions and logarithms, trigonometry, statistics

GEOMETRY (completed 10 or 11) - A thorough study of ideas and logical reasoning through the use of the axiomatic system.  The course will include the topics of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry.  Concepts studied will include lines, planes, angles, triangles, circles, polygons, area, surface area, volume, perimeter, and right triangle trigonometry.  The maintenance of algebraic skills will be emphasized.

3SSGEOMS1 – Semester 1 - Structure of Geometry, constructions, triangle congruence proofs (CCSD Unit 1, Unit 2, sections 1-2)

3SSGEOMS2 – Semester 2 - Similarity, right triangle trigonometry, circles, polygons (CCSD Unit 2, sections 3-4, Unit 3, Unit 4)

PRE-CALCULUS (complete 11 or 12) The study of various mathematical functions, polar and parametric equations, sequences and series, and trigonometric applications.   The course is designed to prepare a student for an A.P. Calculus or college calculus course.

3SSPRCLS1S – Semester 1 - General study of functions, including logarithmic functions; unit circle trigonometry; sequences and series

ENGLISH – A course for students who would like to achieve in areas of reading, writing, and oral communication skills. Instruction includes: grammar, semantics, paragraph, and essay construction. Outside reading and writing assignments required.

1SSENG09S – (completed 9)

1SSENG10S – (completed 10)

1SSENG11S – (completed 11)

CREATIVE WRITING – In this class, students will study, write, and revise poems, short stories, non-fiction narratives, and/or short plays in a workshop situation. Weekly writing assignments and journals emphasize the skills applicable to writing creatively in various genres.

1SSCREWRS – satisfies 1 sem. of any English required or elective credit.

AMERICAN GOVERNMENT – (completed 10 or 11) – This course is designed to introduce students to Constitutional principles of the United States. Students will examine current U.S. policies, citizens' rights, and the means to participate within a democratic form of government. This course will also address state standards in Government and Civics.

2SSAMGOVS

U.S. HISTORY (completed 9, 10, or 11) – A survey of events from the Reconstruction to Industrialization – Semester 1; Industrialization to Contemporary America – Semester 2

2SSUSHSTS1 – Semester 1

2SSUSHSTS2 - Semester 2

 

WORLD GEOGRAPHY (completed 9, 10, or 11) – In this standards-based geography course, students will investigate issues such as population, conflict, interdependence, and the environment throughout regions of the world. Higher level thinking skills will be emphasized, as well as reading, writing, and research skills.

2SSWDGEOS

BIOLOGY (completed 10 or 11) Biochemistry, Cells and Genetics: This class will review process skills such as research skills, data collection and analysis and lab write-up skills as they relate to biology. Students will also learn about characteristics of life, complex carbon compounds, cell structure and function, DNA, genetics and biotechnology applications.

Ecology and Evolution: This class will review process skills such as research skills, data collection and analysis and lab write-up skills as they relate to biology. Students will also learn about populations, biodiversity, ecology and ecosystems, the theory of evolution and taxonomy.

4SSBIO1 – Biochemistry, Cells, Genetics

4SSBIO2 – Ecology and Evolution

 

PHYSICAL SCIENCE - (completed 9, 10, 11) - Chemistry and the Nature of Matter: This class will review process skills such as graphing, metrics and conversions, density, and lab write-up skills. Students will also learn about the periodic table, phases of matter, pH, atomic theory, chemical reactions, naming compounds and balancing equations. Introduction to nuclear chemistry is also covered.  Connections to Earth Science topics (Earth's surface, atmosphere, water, etc.) will be made where relevant.

Motion and Energy: Students will review process skills such as graphing, metrics and conversions, density, and lab write-up skills. Newton's laws, motion, simple machines, and energy (light, sound and heat) are also covered.  Connections to Earth Science topics (astronomy, plate tectonics, oceans, etc.) will be made where relevant.

4SSPHYSS1 – Chemistry and the Nature of Matter

4SSPHYSS2 – Motion and Energy

Spanish 1 – Semester 2 This course is an introduction to the basic language skills in Spanish: speaking, reading, writing and listening. Students will focus on listening comprehension and oral proficiency while they study and use basic grammatical structures. By the end of the course, students will be able to listen and understand, read, write and speak simple dialogues and paragraphs in Spanish. In addition, students will begin the study of the culture and people of Spanish-speaking countries. The course will focus on refining skills and curriculum taught in second semester of Spanish 1.
