Our Mathematics Department at Red Bank Regional High School provides students with a challenging, comprehensive course of study in mathematics. Freshmen are either placed in Algebra 1 or Geometry. Algebra 1 provides a challenging curriculum, establishing a firm foundation in the Algebra needed for success in subsequent courses. We also focus on helping students achieve success on the PARCC exam. Freshman placement will be determined by their previous math experiences, PARCC scores, and our placement tests. Incoming freshmen who have taken Algebra 1 in eighth grade will take our placement test to determine their placement in Algebra 1 or Geometry. After successful completion of an Algebra 1 course, students will take Geometry or Honors Geometry, and Algebra 2 or Honors Algebra 2, building on their understanding of the relationship between algebraic and geometric concepts through both abstract and real-world applications. Students will continue to develop their inductive and deductive reasoning, communication skills, and problem-solving techniques. The majority of our students take Pre-Calculus or Honors Pre-Calculus, which provides essential concepts and skills of algebra, trigonometry, and the study of functions necessary for further study in mathematics. For the motivated sophomores, juniors, and seniors, 2 levels of IB Math, and AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Multivariable Calculus, and AP Statistics are also offered. Some students, especially those interested in the Social Sciences, may elect to take our Statistics or AP Statistics courses. It is our hope that the mathematics program will prepare the students at Red Bank Regional High School with the conceptual framework, practical application and analytical skills necessary to meet the needs of application to real-world problems, occupational uses, and their future study of mathematics.
