Math

At the high school level, students continue Rulers
to build on the basic foundation developed in grades K-8 mathematics as they expand their understanding through other mathematical experiences. These foundations, which include the understanding of number, operation, and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry; measurement; and probability and statistics, are essential foundations throughout high school mathematics.

Geometry

Geometry Scope and Sequence
Online Textbook Resource

Students will begin to focus on more precise terminology, symbolic representations, and the development of proofs. Students will explore concepts covering coordinate and transformational geometry; logical argument and constructions; proof and congruence; similarity, proof, and trigonometry; two- and three-dimensional figures; circles; and probability. In proof and congruence, students will use deductive reasoning to justify, prove and apply theorems about geometric figures. Students will apply theorems about circles to determine relationships between special segments and angles in circles.

Precalculus

Precalculus Scope and Sequence
Online Textbook Resource

Precalculus is the preparation for calculus. The course approaches topics from a function point of view, where appropriate, and is designed to strengthen and enhance conceptual understanding and mathematical reasoning used when modeling and solving mathematical and real-world problems. Students systematically work with functions and their multiple representations. The study of Pre-calculus deepens students' mathematical understanding and fluency with algebra and trigonometry and extends their ability to make connections and apply concepts and procedures at higher levels. Students investigate and explore mathematical ideas, develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations, and use technology to build understanding, make connections between representations, and provide support in solving problems. Students must successfully complete Algebra 2 prior to enrolling in Precalculus.

Advanced Placement Statistics
AP Statistics Scope and Sequence
Online Textbook Resource

This is an Advanced Placement course designed to meet the requirements of statistics as outlined in the Course Description of the Advanced Placement Program in Mathematics. The purpose of the AP course in statistics is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes: exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. At the conclusion of this course, students may take the Advanced Placement Statistics Exam.

Math Models with Applications (MMA)

MMA Scope and Sequence
Online Textbook Resource

Mathematical Models with Applications is designed to build on the knowledge and skills for mathematics in Algebra I and Geometry. Students learn to apply mathematics through experiences in personal finance, science, engineering, fine arts, and social sciences. Students use algebraic, graphical, and geometric reasoning to recognize patterns and structure, model information, solve problems, and communicate solutions. Students will select from tools such as physical objects; manipulatives; technology, including graphing calculators, data collection devices, and computers; and paper and pencil and from methods such as algebraic techniques, geometric reasoning, patterns, and mental math to solve problems. This course is not open to students who have received credit for either semester of Algebra 2.
