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 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 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.
