Grade 10  Mathematics
Core: Mathematics II (Credit: 1.00)Mathematics II extends students' geometric knowledge and introduces them to quadratic expressions, equations, and functions, exploring the relationship between these and their linear and exponential counterparts. Students learn through discovery and application, developing the skills they need to break down complex challenges and demonstrate their knowledge in new situations.
Course topics include extending the number system; quadratic functions and modeling; expressions and equations; applications of probability; similarity, righttriangle trigonometry, and proof; and circles with and without coordinates.
This course supports all students as they develop computational fluency and deepen conceptual understanding. Students begin each lesson by discovering new concepts through guided instruction, and then confirm their understanding in an interactive, feedbackrich environment. Modeling activities equip students with tools for analyzing a variety of realworld scenarios and mathematical ideas. Journaling activities allow students to reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct arguments, critique reasoning, and communicate precisely. Performance tasks prepare students to synthesize their knowledge in novel, realworld scenarios and require that they make sense of multifaceted problems and persevere in solving them.
