Math 3 Course Description
Math 3 students study piecewise, polynomial, rational, and sinusoidal functions. Geometric units focus on circles and their properties and modeling with 2D and 3D geometric figures. Probability rules learned in previous courses are extended to the statistics of making inferences and justifying conclusions. At the end of the course students take the Math 3 End-of-Course (EOC) Exam.
Foundations of Math 1 Course Description
The purpose of this course is to prepare students for NC Math 1 by revisiting concepts students learned in the middle grades. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, require that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. Study concepts of algebra, functions, number and operations and modeling throughout the course. Concepts include expressions in the real number system, creating and reasoning with equations and inequalities, interpreting and building simple functions. Manipulatives, graphing calculators and application software used for instruction and assessment..
