COURSE: MATH 3-Standard                                                                                              2’nd Period

PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of Math 1 and Math 2.

 

DESCRIPTION:   Math 3 continues a progression of the standards established in Math I and Math 2, including expressions in the real and complex number system, seeing structure in functions, interpreting and building simple functions, expressing geometric properties and interpreting categorical and quantitative data. In addition to these standards, Math 3 includes:  polynomials, rational and radical functions, circles and trigonometry, trigonometric identities proving geometric theorems about lines angles, triangles and similarity, normal curve distributions making inferences and justifying conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies, using probability to evaluate outcomes.

.

TEXTBOOK: Prentice Hall Algebra 2; digital access to the Geometry book will be provided.

                                 2. Students will be able to use scientific and graphing calculators for classwork, homework,

                                     and evaluation.

3. Students will be given opportunities to improve their problem-solving skills.

STUDENT

GRADE:           The final average for the each 9 weeks will be computed using the following formula:
