# Curriculum & Courses

Short Description of Courses | |
---|---|

GMP-I Grade 7 |
Part of the first year is spent accelerating students through standard school and state curricular topics including early concepts in geometry, algebra and probability. These topics are addressed through problems that are solved for homework, discussed in classroom groups and presented by peers. The better part of the year is spent on enriching topics that are unique to GMP and are not addressed thoroughly in a standard pre-college curriculum. These include set theory, operational systems, mappings, and logic. Students will also learn some computer programming and use it as a tool in their mathematical studies. 1 College Credit (optional) can be earned for the course, which is listed in the UB undergraduate catalog as GSE-120: Introduction to Logic.GMP-I Curriculum |

GMP-II Grade 8 |
The second year course is divided into two sections. One section involves accelerating students through standard school and state curricular topics that prepare them for the Algebra I Regents Exam in June. The second section involves enriching topics that are unique to GMP and would not be addressed in a standard pre-college curriculum. The topics fall into two categories: computational mathematics and and function representation. Computational mathematics topics include computational logic and sets. The study of function representations includes study of polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions as well as their integrals and derivatives.
2 College Credits (optional) can be earned for the course, which is listed in the UB undergraduate catalog as GSE-121: Logic and Sets.GMP-II Curriculum |

GMP-III Grade 9 |
Our high school freshmen take a geometry course in two sections. The first section involves accelerating students through standard school and state curricular topics that prepare them for the Geometry Regents Exam in June. The second section involves enriching topics that are unique to GMP and would not be addressed thoroughly in a standard pre-college curriculum. These include transformational and analytic geometry and extensive coverage of probability.
1 College Credit (optional) can be earned for the course, which is listed in the UB undergraduate catalog as GSE-122: Analytic Geometry.GMP-III Curriculum |

GMP-IV Grade 10 |
The fourth year of GMP is highly accelerated. The course is equivalent to two high school courses, namely Algebra II/Trigonometry and Precalculus. Topics include (but are not limited to) statistics; sequences; limits; exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, rational and trigonometric functions; complex numbers; and vectors.
2 College Credits (optional) can be earned for the course, which is listed in the UB undergraduate catalog as GSE-123: Relations and Functions.GMP-IV Curriculum |

GMP-V Grade 11 |
