It provides students a survey of preparatory topics for high school mathematics, including the foundations for high school algebra and geometry. Appropriate technology and tools, including manipulatives and calculators, will be used regularly for instruction and assessment.
 
Math I
The focus of the foundational high school mathematics course is to increase student understanding of functions as a unifying concept in advanced mathematics. The goal is to formalize and extend prior understanding by deepening and extending student understanding of linear functions, in part by contrasting those functions with exponential and quadratic phenomena, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. In addition to studying bivariate data, students also summarize, represent, and interpret data from single measurement variables. The geometry standards in this course formalize and extend student experiences to explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout every course. Together with the content standards, these practices require that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that builds on their ability to make sense of problem situations. Students are required to take the NC End of Course Exam.

Functions included are power, square root, cube root, piecewise, absolute value and simple rational. The geometric strand includes experimenting with transformations in the plane and applying geometric concepts in modeling situations. Students also define trigonometric ratios and solve problems involving right triangles. The link between probability and data is explored through independence, conditional and compound probability including their use in making models and evaluating decisions. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout the course and prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. Students are required to take the NC Final Exam.
 
Math III Honors 
Math III progresses from the standards learned in Math I and II. Students extend their understanding of polynomials by exploring the relationship between zeroes and factors. Students learn and apply the Remainder Theorem. They represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically including polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential and logarithmic functions. Students use the unit circle to extend the trigonometric functions to all real numbers and model periodic phenomena. The geometric strand includes proving theorems about lines, angles, triangles, and parallelograms. Students explore similarity and congruence. They understand and apply theorems about circles. Students use statistical processes to make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout the course and prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. Students are required to take the NC Final Exam.
