  • Beginning Guitar (credit)

    This is a summer version of the in-year Beginning Guitar course. Students can expect to learn the same material at an accelerated pace, 6 hours a day for 3 weeks. Students should expect to play regularly in this class, but not every lesson will involve playing, and may instead involve reading music or discussing music theory concepts and key figures in guitar based music. The objective of this course is to give students a baseline competency in playing acoustic guitar as well as some basic general musician skills. This will involve knowing and playing simple and complex chords, sight reading music, learning to understand and read the different ways guitar music is written (tablature, chord sheets, and sheet music), and learning about the history of guitar based music in American and world culture. The class will culminate in a student choice project, where they will select, learn, and perform a song of their choice for the class.

  • Algebra 1 Review or Customized High School Math Review (online)

    Algebra 1 covers the subject matter traditionally included in a rigorous first-year course of algebra. Emphasis is placed on the development of manipulative skills, algebraic structure, and solutions of verbal problems. Topics covered include: operations with real numbers, rational and irrational algebraic expressions, and polynomials; solving linear, rational and quadratic equations, solving systems of linear equations and inequalities, and solving word problems related to each type of equation studied; factoring algebraic expressions, an introduction to functions and several types of variation. A graphing calculator and a laptop computer are used for classroom demonstrations, discovery activities, and as an aid in problem solving. 

    This is an online review class.

    **This online course could also be customized to meet the review needs for any high school math course, not just Algebra 1.  For further details, please contact the Summer Programs Office at 813.885.1673, ext. 2239.**

  • Algebra 2 Review (online)

    Algebra 2 emphasizes the further development of Algebra 1 skills, the treatment of geometric concepts from an algebraic point of view, more advanced problem solving techniques, and the study of mathematics as a unified structure. Topics covered include: conic sections, rational expressions, equations and inequalities, systems of linear equations, word problems, functions, factoring, quadratic equations with rational and irrational roots, irrational numbers, imaginary and complex numbers, graphs, variations, exponents and logarithms, coordinate geometry, quadratic functions, equations of the second degree and their graphs, polynomial functions, exponential functions, logarithmic function and matrices. A student who is enrolled in this course is required to purchase a graphing calculator. It will be used extensively to perform discovery activities, for classroom demonstrations, and to serve as an aid for homework completion.  

    This is an online review class.

  • Honors Pre-Calculus Review (online)

    Honors Pre-Calculus is designed primarily for students who plan to continue their study of mathematics by taking Calculus at Berkeley or in college. The concepts of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions are stressed. Conic sections, sequences and series, introductory probability and statistics, polar coordinates and graphing, and elementary concepts of calculus are also included. Students enrolled in the course are required to have graphing calculators for classroom and assignment activities. This course is offered in the summer for rising juniors and seniors. 

    This is an online review course.
