The Mathematics Department at Terra Linda offers a variety of courses designed to meet each student’s needs and ability. 

  • Algebra Readiness (Course for English Learners only; supports given to become grade-level proficient)
  • Algebra A (1st Semester of Algebra 1, taken freshman year)
  • Algebra B  (2nd Semester of Algebra 1, taken sophomore year)
  • Algebra 1  (Full course offered in 1 year)
  • Geometry (Full year Geometry course)
  • Geometry Honors (Full year Geometry course for students interested in STEM pathway; heavier emphasis on Coordinate Geometry and proofs)
  • Intermediate Algebra 2 (2nd year UC Algebra course for non-math/science pathway; Seniors have priority enrollment)
  • Algebra 2 (2nd year UC Algebra course)
  • Algebra 2 Honors (2nd year UC Algebra course for Calculus pathway)
  • Algebra 2 Honors/Pre-Calculus Honors Double-Block Course (Exclusively for Juniors entering Algebra 2 interested in Calculus pathway; course requires 2 periods of math in scheduling, one odd period and one even period).
  • Pre-Calculus (Intended for STEM or non-STEM majors. May be a terminal course; can also serves as an alternative to Statistics) 
  • Pre-Calculus Honors (Intended for STEM majors and students who will be taking Calculus)
  • Statistics (Emphasis on probability and hands-on activities)
  • AP Calculus (Advanced Placement in College level Calculus AB course)
  • AP Statistics (Advanced Placement in College level Statistics course)

Students should earn a C- or higher in the prerequisite course in order to advance.  More information about prerequisites can be found in the Terra Linda Curriculum Guide on the Counseling page.  Placement information can be found below.
