GRADE 12 CURRICULUM

Humanities IV
This course is a study of the principles and developments in philosophical and sociological thinking from Ancient civilizations through contemporary inquiries and expressions (2,000 B.C.E to the present). Students examine philosophical and sociological ideas from a variety of historical sources and perspectives in an effort to examine the self and find meaning and understanding of our world and the human condition. Curriculum is organized around thematic units with careful consideration to connect literature to each unit of study.

Human Rights Program

The three guiding principles of the Human Rights classes are:
1. The study of history, terminology, and current events; 2. Advocacy, action, and service; 3. Community engagement and support.

Pre-Calculus
This course challenges students to explore the ins and outs of nuance of polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Through interactive demos and discussions, students will learn how topics from the Algebra course sequence apply to introductory themes in calculus (sequences, series, and rates of change). The second part of the course is dedicated to discovering trigonometric functions, the polar coordinate plane, and their applications in related quantitative fields of study. Through passion explorations and several key projects, students translate the course topics into new ways of comprehending the quantitative world they live in.

Calculus
This is the first introduction into professional mathematics. Besides reviewing trigonometry and logarithms, we will explore limits, functions and graphs, then introduce the notions of differentiation and integration with many real-world applications. The senior-level course is intended to prepare the student for a more comprehensive exploration into calculus at the college/university level.

Climate Crisis and Action
Climate Crisis and Action is a unique science course at MUSE. Humans continue to change our oceans and atmosphere in increasingly negative ways. In the climate crisis class, students will look at science through the lens of the human influence on the oceans, atmosphere, and soil. The core concepts covered in Climate Crisis and Action are: acid/base chemistry, ecology, carrying capacity, cells, mathematical modeling, and biogeochemical cycles.
