Examines the concepts and diverse modalities by which students learn patterns and functions, problem-solving, probability, sets, number sense, computational procedures, relationships of integers, properties of real numbers, and number theory. Understanding of multiple problem-solving methods for the concepts covered and understanding the mathematical properties and processes involved is the primary focus of the course.
Examines the concepts and diverse modalities by which students learn properties and relationships of 2D and 3D geometric figures, measurement, usage of geometric learning tools, data investigations, randomness and uncertainty, and algebraic representation. Understanding of multiple problem-solving methods for the concepts covered and understanding the mathematical properties and processes involved are key focuses of the course.
Covers mathematical topics of use and/or interest to students who do not need a technical course in algebra to succeed in sciences or pre-calculus. Topics cover a broad range, such as the interpretation of graphical information, growth models, a basic introduction to data, probability and statistics, game theory, voting theory, number systems, geometry and fractals, and mathematics in nature.
Topics include a brief review of elementary algebra, introduction to polynomial, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions using both symbolic and graphic approaches. Emphasis is on applications in a variety of disciplines and solutions of real-world problems. Students planning to continue mathematics receive appropriate preparation.
Precalculus mathematics, further properties of polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions and their graphs, trigonometric identities and equations, inverse trigonometric functions, introduction to analytic geometry. Formal mathematical language designed to help students succeed in college calculus courses.
Limits, continuity and fundamental theory of differentiation, symbolic and numerical calculations of derivatives, applications of derivatives; definite integrals and Riemann sums.
Study of numerical integration, applications of definite integrals, improper integrals, sequences and infinite series, basic ideas and methods for solving differential equations.
Elementary graph theory including matrix representation; coding and sorting applications; combinations and permutations; voting and apportionment; introduction to logic; elementary algorithm analysis and design; mathematical induction.
Covers the fundamentals of data analysis and applied statistics with particular emphasis on the reasoning behind techniques and the entirety of a data focused investigative process. Students will have the opportunity to work with real data, use a statistical programming language, and perform entire analyses on data from asking initial questions to communicating final conclusions. Common statistical topics include inference with resampling methods, inference with probability distributions, and simple linear regression.
Foundations of Euclidean geometry, solid geometry; introductions to non-Euclidean geometry; spherical geometry. Course includes dynamic geometry investigations using appropriate software.
Topics include functions of several variables, gradients, partial derivatives and multiple integrals, vector fields, Green's and Stoke's theorems, and applications.
Further study of systems of linear equations, matrices and determinants, vector spaces and subspaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization.
This course consists of two portions. Secondary planning for mathematics instruction includes classroom observations and the study of mathematics curriculum, assessment, teaching methods and resources for teaching and learning aids. Highlights of math related to high school teaching revisit some important concepts in core math courses.
Introduction to groups, ring and field theory; group homomorphism and isomorphism, Cayley's theorem, and quotient groups, Lagrange's theorem; rings, ideals, ring homomorphism and basic properties of fields.
A survey course in mathematical probability and statistics. It includes probability distributions and densities, mathematical expectations, functions of random variables, introduction to estimation theory and hypothesis testing and applications.
