SpringBoard high school math courses equip students with the critical thinking skills needed for success in AP courses, college, and career.

## Algebra 1

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.

## Geometry

Geometry students:

• 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

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.

## Precalculus

Precalculus students:

• 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.
