Only students with a teacher recommendation should take this course.

### Math 10 (Grade 10) 3014

A primary focus of Mathematics 10 is the study of quadratic functions, comparing and contrasting their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential functions that were developed in Mathematics 9. Like Mathematics 9, Mathematics 10 is organized into six critical areas or units. Rational numbers are extended to the real complex numbers to ensure that all quadratics can be solved. Concepts in probability and data analysis developed in Mathematics 9 are extended to enable students to make and evaluate decisions. Geometric knowledge is expanded to include similarity with work centered on both rigid and non rigid transformations. The study of similarity provides a foundation for an introduction to right triangle trigonometry. The final unit in the course ties together the algebraic and geometric ideas studies.

The final unit in the course ties together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied and utilizes analytic proofs as justifications.

### Math 11 (Grade 11)

Math 11 offers a more personalized learning plan aligned to the student’s career aspirations—Math 11 LA, Math 11 STEM, or Math 11 TR. It is in Math 11 that students consolidate previous learning to become college and career ready. Content is organized into four units that include probability and statistics, expansion of functions, and a study of right triangle trigonometry. Select one of the following to be taken in the junior year:

**Math 11 LA 3015**
