Foundations of NC Math 1 | 20902X0 |

This course is a continuation of mathematical skills and concepts which prepare students for NC Math 1. |

**CREDIT:** 1 | **TYPE:** Regular | **GRADE:** 9-12 |

NC Math 1 | 21092X0 |

NC Math 1 is designed to formalize and extend the mathematics learned in the middle grades. The topics studied seek to deepen and extend the understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting them with exponential phenomena, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. NC Math 1 uses properties and theorems involving congruent figures to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge from prior grades. Culminating units of study tie together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied and also provide students opportunities to have experiences with more formal means of assessing how a model fits data. Students use regression techniques to describe approximately linear relationships between two quantities. They further use graphical representations and knowledge of the context to make judgments about the appropriateness of the linear models. Appropriate technology and tools, including calculators, will be used regularly for instruction and assessment. This course has a required NC End-of-Course examination. |

NC Math 2 | 22092X0 |

This rigorous course focuses on quadratic expressions, equations, and functions; comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential functions as a continuing study from NC Math 1. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises so that all quadratic equations can be solved. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability and counting methods, including their use in making and evaluating decisions. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through the Pythagorean relationships. Circles, with their quadratic algebraic representations, complete the course. Appropriate technology and tools, including calculators, will be used regularly for instruction and assessment. |

NC Math 2 - Honors | 22095X0 |

This challenging, higher level course will cover the NC Math 2 curriculum in greater complexity and at a faster pace than the standard NC Math 2 course. Students may have to devote additional time and effort to this honors course. It is suggested that students have a teacher recommendation before registering for this course. Honors credit will be awarded for this course. |

NC Math 3 | 23092X0 |

This course is designed so that students have the opportunity to pull together and apply the accumulation of mathematics concepts learned previously. They apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data. Students expand their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions, including an intense study of families of functions and the relationships therein. They expand their study of right triangle trigonometry to include general triangles and in the study of trigonometric functions to model simple periodic phenomena. Finally, students bring together all of their experience with functions and geometry to create models and solve contextual problems. Appropriate technology and tools, including calculators, will be used regularly for instruction and assessment. |

Essentials for College Math (SREB) | 24082X0A |

This course emphasizes understanding of math concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. Math Ready students learn the context behind the procedure: why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem, for example. This equips them with higher-order thinking to apply math skills, functions and concepts in different situations. Prepares students for college-level math assignments. (Not designed to prepare students for college-level math in STEM majors). |
