# MATH

4 credits of math in high school, one of which shall be the equivalent to or higher than the level of Algebra II

# Math

This courses focuses on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout this course and, together with the content standards, prescribe mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes sense of problem situations.

# Math

This course focuses on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout this course and, together with the content standards, prescribe mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes sense of problem situations.

# Algebra I

Students will learn several topics in mathematics including but not limited to: writing, solving, and graphing linear and quadratic equations, including systems of two linear equations in two unknowns; solving quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, graphically, or by application of the quadratic formula; and the study of monomial and polynomial expressions, inequalities, exponents, functions, rational expressions, ratio, and proportion. Algebraic skills are applied in a wide variety of problem-solving situations

# Geometry

Course emphasizing an abstract, formal approach to the study of geometry, include topics such as properties of plane and solid figures; deductive reasoning and use of logic; geometry as an axiomatic system including the study of postulates, theorems, and formal proofs; rules of congruence, similarity, parallelism, and perpendicularity; and rules of angle measurement in triangles, including trigonometry, coordinate geometry, and transformational geometry. Review topics: basic measurement, perimeter, area, volume, and inductive methods of reasoning.

# Algebra II

This course reviews the algebraic skills of factoring and special products acquired in Algebra I. The course then continues the teaching of the concepts introduced in Algebra in a more concentrated study. In addition, the course will include working with complex numbers, trigonometric functions, progressions, binomial expansions, polynomial functions as well as introduction to permutations, combinations, and probability. An understanding of the Graphing calculators will be introduced.
