Course Description:

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of relationships and extend their problem-solving and algebraic skills through investigation, the effective use of technology, and abstract reasoning. Students will explore quadratic relations and their applications; solve and apply linear systems; verify properties of geometric figures using analytic geometry; and investigate the trigonometry of right and acute triangles. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

Curriculum Overall Expectations:

A. Quadratic Relations of the Form y=ax2+bx+c

  • Determine the basic properties of quadratic relations;

  • Relate transformations of the graph of y = x2 to the algebraic representation y = a(x - h)2 + k;

  • Solve quadratic equations and interpret the solutions with respect to the corresponding relations;

  • Solve problems involving quadratic relations.

Analytic Geometry

  • model and solve problems involving the intersection of two straight lines;

  • solve problems using analytic geometry involving properties of lines and line segments;

  • verify geometric properties of triangles and quadrilaterals, using analytic geometry.

C. Trigonometry

  • use their knowledge of ratio and proportion to investigate similar triangles and solve problems related to similarity;

  • solve problems involving right triangles, using the primary trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean theorem;

  • solve problems involving acute triangles, using the sine law and the cosine law.
