• Course Description

    Mathematics II continues students' study of topics from algebra, geometry, and statistics in a problem-centered, connected approach.  Functions, probability, trigonometry, and algebraic representations of geometric concepts are the principle topics of study.  Students will be expected to describe and translate among graphic, algebraic, numeric, tabular, and verbal representations of relationships and use those representations to solve problems.  Appropriate technology, from manipulative to calculators and application software, will be used regularly for instruction and assessment.

  • Course Goals/Performance

    N-RN:  Extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents and use properties of rational and irrational numbers.

    N-CN: Defining complex numbers.

    A-SSE:  Interpret the structure of expressions.

    A-APR:  Perform arithmetic operations on polynomials.

    A-CED:  Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.

    A-REI:  Understanding solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning, solve equations and inequalities in one variable, solve systems of equations, and represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically.

    F-IF:  Understand the concept of a function and use function notation, interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context, and analyze functions using different representations.

    F-BF:  Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities and build new functions from existing functions.

    G-CO:  Experiment with transformations in the plane, understand congruence in terms of rigid motions, and prove geometric theorems.

    G-SRT:  Understand similarity in terms of similarity transformations, prove theorems involving similarity, and define trigonometric ratios and solve problems involving right triangles.

    S-IC: Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments.

    S-CP: Understand independence and conditional probability and use them to interpret data and use the rules of probability to compute probabilities of compound events in a uniform probability model.

  • Academic Requirements

    The student must maintain at least an average of 60 or better to receive credit for this course.

    In averaging ten weeks grades, the following percentages will be used:

    Test average counts 40% (Projects will cunt as a test score and there will be a minimum of 3 major grades)

    Quiz average counts 30% (Quizzes will be announced, unannounced, and cumulative)

    Classwork/participation average counts 20%

    Homework average counts 10%

    NC Math II Honors will have a NC final exam that counts 25% of their final grade.
