Suggested Summer Prep for AP & Honors Courses

Honors Algebra 2 and the Double Block Course:

Algebra 2 Honors is a fun and very fast-paced course.  There are 10 tools from Algebra 1 you must have ready to go in your toolbox when you walk in the door in August; they can be found in THIS PACKET.  

In order to set yourself up for success, it is strongly recommended the entire packet is completed WITHOUT the aid of a calculator and all problems are checked for accuracy. If there are questions about concepts or problems, please use the help videos to remediate or reach out to your teacher before class starts! 

Need additional help?  Check out Ms. Lawrence’s Algebra 1 YouTube playlist.


Honors Pre-Calculus:

Check out THIS PACKET for a comprehensive set of practice problems.  It is strongly suggested you complete the entire packet to make sure you are ready for the fast pace and rigor of Honors PreCalculus. 


AP Calculus AB:

Make sure you stay sharp on your trigonometry from PreCalculus.  Study your unit circle regularly over the summer.

**You will need a TI-84 graphing calculator in the first week of class.  You can either provide your own or check one out from the TL Math Department in the first week. **


AP Statistics:
No summer assignment.
