high school math courses

The South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM) is offering two synchronous-virtual year-long high school math courses to students across the state next academic year—starting in August 2023 (course descriptions below).

The courses will be taught live via Zoom during the school day over the course of the whole school year.
GSSM will provide textbooks and other needed course materials to students.
Enrollment is limited to ensure quality instruction.

If you have any questions or are interested in these courses, please email Dr. Nicole Kroeger (kroeger@governors.school).


Honors Precalculus: A two-semester course that is designed to prepare students for the study of calculus. First semester topics include linear functions, polynomial functions, rational functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, function composition and transformations. Spring semester topics include trigonometry, parametric and polar equations, and partial fractions.
Schedule: The class meets Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 10am-10:53am in both the fall and spring semesters. Students must take both the whole yearlong course.

Calculus 1: Topics include limits and continuity, the derivative, differentiation of algebraic and trigonometric functions, applications of the derivative, indeterminate forms, basic integration techniques, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
Prerequisite: Students should have completed Honors PreCalculus or equivalent before enrolling in Calculus 1.

Schedule: In the fall, the class will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday 2:00pm-2:53pm. In the spring, the class will meet Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 2:00-2:53pm. Students must take the whole yearlong course.

Credit: In fall, earns honors credit. In spring, earns dual enrolled credit with Coker University for MAT 231.
