PROGRAM OF STUDY
                  Our school’s program of studies has been prepared for students, parents, teachers, and guid-
             ance counselors. Students will receive individual advisement from guidance counselors to help
             them make appropriate course selections. Each student’s teachers should also serve as resources
             for advice and help in making course selections. Students should take seriously the selection of
             courses for the next school year and choose a course of study based on their individual goals and
             abilities.
                 Many universities are highly selective in their admissions. Students are encouraged to select a
             rigorous course of study and enroll in higher level courses as much as possible. A rigorous senior
             year of study is an expectation of many colleges as well as employers. Seniors are encouraged to
             select challenging courses and consider Advanced Placement, AP, options.
                 AP courses are weighted in the calculation of the cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) carry-
             ing one extra point. Cumulative GPA refers to the overall GPA, which includes dividing the number
             of quality points earned in all courses attempted by the total credit hours in all attempted courses.
             The DoDEA Honors Diploma is available to seniors who have a cumulative GPA at or above 3.8 and
             have taken four or more AP courses. Class of 2019 and beyond: 0.5 credit Economic Literacy in
             CTE, Social Studies, Science, or Math. The Class of 2019 and beyond must complete four math
             credits including Algebra II.
                 DoDEA offers online Summer School as a means for students to recover credit from failed
             courses in order to meet graduation requirements, as well as a few courses for original credit.
             Additionally, several courses are available during the school year through DoDEA Virtual School for
             transfer students who need to complete a course not offered locally. Some well-disciplined students
             may want to enroll in Virtual School as a means of taking courses not available on campus. Please
             speak with your guidance counselor to learn more.

Preparing for the ACT/SAT

  ACT   The ACT (American College Test) is an entrance test that measures what has been learned in
        high school. The test consists of four sections composed of English, mathematics, reading, and
        science. Like the SAT, the ACT also includes an essay section. Both SAT and ACT have an essay
        option. Students should check with their prospective colleges to see if they need to complete
        the essay. Rather than a total score, the ACT gives a composite or average score for the test.
        Register at www.actstudent.org . Students will create a personal account and then use these
        codes:

            Stuttgart High School Code: 576325
            ACT Test Center Code: 866390

  SAT   The SAT tests skills that you are learning in high school—skills you’re likely to need in college and
        beyond. The evidence-based reading and writing section of the SAT will ask you to analyze, syn-
        thesize, and interpret data from a wide range of sources. You will be tested on words that appear
        frequently in high-school-level and college-level texts. The Math Test focuses in depth on three
        essential areas of math: Problem Solving and Data Analysis, Heart of Algebra, and Passport to
        Advanced Math. Throughout the SAT you will be asked questions grounded in the real world, di-
        rectly related to work performed in college and career. The optional essay will ask you to analyze
        how an author uses evidence, reasoning, and other stylistic evidence to craft a persuasive argu-
        ment. The SAT is three hours long and the optional Essay is an additional 50 minutes. The SAT
        is scored on a 400 to 1600 scale. You will also receive sub-score reporting for every test (math,
        reading, and writing and language) plus additional sub-scores to provide added insight into your
        test performance. If the student waits until the senior year, it is strongly recommended that the
        test be taken when it is first given in October. Register at www.collegeboard.com Students
        will create a personal account with College Board and will need the following codes to register:
             Stuttgart High School Code: 576325
             SAT Test Center Code: 57633

 PSAT   The PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) has
        two primary purposes. It introduces a student to the organization and types of questions found
        on the SAT and helps students to predict their scores on the SAT. The junior year PSAT scores are
        used in awarding the National Merit Scholarship awards. The PSAT is given on a Wednesday in
        October.

      Year-long      etry relating to the American experience from colonization to modern times.
      11th           Readings will be challenging, complex, and rich; collegial discussions among
                     the students will deepen their understanding of the use, structure, and im-
                     pact of language embodied in a work. Wide reading will provide students the
                     opportunity to explore and appreciate trends in linguistic styles across time.
                     Students will write in informal and formal contexts to become proficient in

      11th -12th     contexts and to become skilled writers who compose a variety of purpos-
                     es. Both their writing and their reading should make students aware of the
                     interactions among a writer’s purposes, audience expectations, and sub-
                     jects as well as the way generic conventions and the resources of language

                     to enable students to read complex texts with understanding and to write
                     prose of sufficient richness and complexity to communicate effectively with
                     mature readers. Writing and reading assignments will help students move
                     beyond such programmatic responses.

               appreciation of any literary work, and increase your sensitivity to litera-
               ture as shared experience. To achieve these goals, you study the individual
               work, its language, characters, action, and theme. You consider its struc-
               ture, meaning, and value, and its relationship to contemporary experience
               as well as to the context in which it was written. AP students in English Lit
               and Comp are involved in the study and practice of writing as well as in the
               study of literature.

     Year-long        al mathematical figures and relationships. Triangles, circles, and many other
     9-12             geometric figures are explored in this course. Fundamental algebraic skills are
                      important as students work with various mathematical relationships within these
                      figures such as area, volume, lengths of segments and measurement of angles.
                      Geometric proofs are foundational to this course as students verify theorems and
                      other geometric relationships through a logical reasoning process.

      Algebraic Modeling
      MAZ405       Algebraic Modeling is a course designed to help students understand the connec-
      Year-long    tion and need of mathematics in everyday life. It is basically a course in applied
      9-12         Algebra as it relates to real world situations. Students will expand on Algebra I
                      skills in the application of equations and linear, quadratic, and exponential func-
                      tions. Concepts and solutions are presented in easy to understand language with
                      numerous ways to illustrate ideas. Students will become proficient in the use of
                      graphing calculators for displaying historical data that is used to predict future
                      trends and predictions.

     Algebra II

     Year-long        learn and apply Algebra II skills. This course will include topics such as func-
     9-12             tions, radical functions, rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions,
                      trigonometry, geometry, conic sections, systems of equations, probability, and
                      statistics. Students will apply the skills that they learn in this course to real
                      world situations.

     Advanced Quantitative Reasoning
     MAZ507      This course is beyond the Algebra II level which prepares the student for col-
     Year-long   lege mathematics. Advanced Functions provides students an in-depth study of
     10-12       modeling and applying functions. Home, work, recreation, consumer issues,
                      public policy, and scientific investigations are just a few of the areas from which
                      applications should originate. Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to
                      calculators and application software, should be used regularly for instruction and
                      assessment.

     Discrete Math A and Discrete Math B
     MAZ501A      Discrete math is designed to make real world math more meaningful. By em-
     semester         phasizing reasoning, problem-solving, and connections among various topics
     11-12            such as voting, population distribution, fairness, probability, and code breaking,
     MAZ501B          the course invites students to learn about their own lives and how they interact
                      with the world around them. Discrete Math A looks at voting, fair division, and
     semester
                      graph theory. Discrete Math B looks at Graph Theory, Scheduling, and Cryptol-
     11-12
                      ogy. Both courses are non-sequential with each chapter a stand-alone topic and
                      ideally designed for post Algebra II students. The topics show how simple math-
                      ematical concepts intertwine constantly in the real world and that solutions are
                      not always based on complex equations but more often simple formulas based
                      on the correct details.
