SpringBoard high school math courses equip students with the critical thinking skills needed for success in AP courses, college, and career.
Algebra 1 students:
- Gain an understanding of the properties of real numbers.
- Formalize the language of functions.
- Explore the behavior of functions numerically, graphically, analytically, and verbally.
- Use technology to discover relationships, test inferences, and solve problems.
- Write expressions, equations, and inequalities from physical models.
- Communicate mathematics understanding formally and informally.
- Read, analyze, and solve right triangle and trigonometric functions within contextual situations.
- Develop area formulas necessary for determining volumes of rotational solids, solids with known cross sections, and area beneath a curve.
- Explain work clearly so that the reasoning process can be followed throughout the solution.
Algebra 2 students:
- Develop the algebra of functions through operations, composition, and inverses.
- Read and analyze contextual situations involving exponential and logarithmic functions.
- Work with functions graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.
- Learn optimization problems.
- Compare the relative rate of change of linear and exponential functions.
- Learn the concept of infinite sum as a limit of partial sums.
- Work with statistics in numerical summaries and calculations using the normal, curve, and the modeling of data.
- Gain an introductory understanding of convergence and divergence.
- Collect, analyze, and draw conclusions from data.
- Solve problems in contextual situations dealing with polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
- Model motion using parametric equations and vectors.
- Develop an intuitive understanding of limits and continuity.
- Justify their reasoning and understanding verbally, in writing, and with models.
- Use technology to explore and support conjectures.
