Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School is seeking to hire a high school math teacher to start in academic year 2019-2020. The position entails teaching AP Calculus, Precalculus, and Honors Physics but may involve other science fields. Applicants should be able to instruct in most HS math and physics subject areas. Previous teaching experience in HS math and physics is desired, as is a teaching certificate.
CALCULUS COURSE DESCRIPTION Calculus provides an introduction to college-level single-variable calculus, including the use and interpretation of technology via the TI-84 graphing calculator. Topics in differential calculus include limits, methods of differentiation, related rates and optimization applications, and an introduction to anti-derivatives and rectilinear motion. Topics in integral calculus include Riemann sums, net area between two functions, definite integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, techniques of integration, volumes of revolution, average of a function, physics and engineering applications, and an introduction to slope fields and separable differential equations.
PRECALCULUS COURSE DESCRIPTION Precalculus continues the synthesis begun in Algebra II between the algebra of functions and equations and their associated visual properties as graphs in the Cartesian plane. It expands upon that synthesis with the introduction and study of trigonometry. Also included in Precalculus are: sequences, probability, and counting theory; vectors; and conics.
HONORS PHYSICS COURSE DESCRIPTION Honors Physics 1 provides an advanced physics course for our students who are mathematically orientated and in honors precalculus or above. The course gives them an opportunity to apply the math skills they have learned in other classes to a different subject area. Beginning with kinematics students rapidly begin to answer the classic question asked in pure math: "when will I use this in real life?" Using a spiral curriculum, the course guides the students through increasingly advanced levels of analysis. The course loosely follows the AP Physics 1 content, covering vectors, kinematics, forces, impact and momentum, energy, oscillatory motion, waves, gravitation and basic electromagnetism. With adjustments being made for differentiation within the group; the advanced students are prepared for and have the option to take the AP exam.
Honors Physics 2 continues where physics one left off following the physics 2 AP syllabus; all students are in a precalculus math stream. Honors Physics 2 reinforces and develops the previous work on electromagnetism, electrostatics, thermodynamics, optics, and twentieth-century physics. Students are again given the option of taking the AP exam.
