Course Description  This is a yearlong course in Advanced Trigonometry and Precalculus.

This course deepens the students’ study of trigonometry and functions. We focus on graphing and understanding functions by their graphs as well as the form of their equations. Specifically, students study linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. We also explore analytic geometry and introduce calculus. By the end of the year, students should feel more confident about taking calculus 1 in college.

This course requires work outside of class times. In fact, for each hour of class time, students should expect to spend 2-4 hours outside of class time studying. It requires students to participate in online activities including but not limited to an online discussion forum, online quizzes or assessments, and online assignments. Please make sure your child has access to the course at UHS Online.

Course Objectives  This is a yearlong high school level course designed to meet the following learning goals. Students will:

  • Graph all types of functions; linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric.
  • Understand the forms of the equations for the functions listed above.
  • Understand the identity functions and their transformations.
  • Use analytic geometry, trigonometry, and algebraic thinking to model problems.
  • Expand thinking to explore limits and beginning calculus concepts

The content of Algebra 1 is organized around families of functions, with special emphasis on linear and quadratic functions. As you study each family of functions, you will learn to represent them in multiple ways -- as verbal descriptions, equations, tables, and graphs. You will also learn to model real world situations using functions in order to solve problems arising from those situations. In addition to its algebra content our classes will include studies on probability and data analysis as well as numerous examples in exercises involving geometry. These math topics often appear on standardized tests so maintaining your familiarity with them is important. To help you prepare for standardized tests, our class provides instruction and practice on standardized test questions in a variety of formats: multiple choice, short response, extended response and so on. Online support for both learning algebra and preparing for any test or quizzes are available on your UHS dashboard. The textbook is included in the price of the class.

A scientific calculator is required for this course.

This is a yearlong course in Algebra 2 and Trigonometry designed to meet or exceed the A-G requirements for a homeschool math course. The first semester will further the study of algebra through building on the students earlier understanding of functions, equations, and graphing. We will go deeper into these topics and introduce new topics such as complex numbers and logarithms. The second semester will deepen our study of trigonometry from the basics we learned in geometry to include the Unit circle, radian measure, trig identities, using trig to solve non-right triangles and a study of loci. This course will require work outside of class times. It may also require students to participate in some online activities including but not limited to an online discussion forum, online quizzes or assessments, and online assignments. Please make sure your child has access to the course at UHS Online. 

Pre-requisite for this class: Students must have completed a thorough Algebra 1 class and preferably Geometry as well. This class will translate well and be essentially the same online.

This high school biology course is designed to give students a foundation in the themes and concepts of biology. Students will study the principles of the science of biology and the chemistry of life. Students will gain understanding of the biosphere and our ecosystems. The course will include study of cell structure, photosynthesis, cell growth and cell division. We will discuss the fundamentals in genetics, from the structure and function of DNA to human heredity. Topics covered also include Darwin’s theory of evolution, the history of life, as well as microorganisms and plants. We will end our school year by diving deep into the human body, studying the digestive, nervous, skeletal, muscular, circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, and immune systems.

This course will require work outside of class times. There will be homework assigned 1-2 times a week. It will also require students to participate in some online activities including but not limited to: an online discussion forum, online quizzes, assessments, and assignments. Please do not sign up unless you are willing to support your child in completing these assignments. Please make sure your child has access to the course at UHS Online.

Prerequisite: Be currently enrolled in a biology class. UHS’ biology class fulfills this requirement or students may be enrolled in an online biology class that you supervise at home. Please provide proof of course registration when registering for this course. Description: This lab meets once a month from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Date: 9/24,10/22,11/19,12/17.

Labs flow from classwork and include work with the microscopes, making wet mount and dry mount slides, collecting samples for study, and dissection of multiple species. In addition to the hands-on skills developed in the lab, students also gain valuable experience with collecting data, sorting and analyzing data, and writing up the results of their experiments.
