4^{th} Course Descriptions
High School Math IV
The fundamental purpose of Mathematics IV is to generalize and abstract learning accumulated through previous courses and to provide the final springboard to calculus. Students take an extensive look at the relationships among complex numbers, vectors, and matrices. They build on their understanding of functions, analyze rational functions using an intuitive approach to limits and synthesize functions by considering compositions and inverses. Students expand their work with trigonometric functions and their inverses and complete the study of the conic sections begun in Mathematics II. They enhance their understanding of probability by considering probability distributions. Previous experiences with series are augmented. High School Math IV is appropriate for those students that complete Math III STEM.
High School STEM Readiness Mathematics
This course is designed for students who have completed the Math III (LA) course and subsequently decided they are interested in pursuing a STEM career. It includes standards that would have been covered in Math III (STEM) but not in Math III (LA) (i.e. standards in the CCSS document that are marked with a “+” ), selected topics from the suggested CCSS Math IV course, and topics drawing from standards covered in Math I and Math II as needed for coherence.
Advanced Mathematical Modeling
Students continue to build upon their algebra and geometry foundations and expand their understanding through further mathematical experiences. The primary focal points of Advanced Mathematical Modeling include the analysis of information using statistical methods and probability, modeling change and mathematical relationships, mathematical decision making in finance, and spatial and geometric modeling for decisionmaking. Students learn to become critical consumers of the quantitative data that surround them every day, knowledgeable decision makers who use logical reasoning and mathematical thinkers who can use their quantitative skills to solve problems related to a wide range of situations. As they solve problems in various applied situations, they develop critical skills for success in college and careers, including investigation, research, collaboration and both written and oral communication of their work. As students work with these topics, they continually rely on mathematical processes, including problemsolving techniques, appropriate mathematical language and communication skills, connections within and outside mathematics and reasoning. Students also use multiple representations, technology, applications and modeling and numerical fluency in problemsolving contexts.
Transition Mathematics for Seniors*
Transition Math for Seniors prepares students for their entrylevel creditbearing liberal studies mathematics course at the postsecondary level. This course will solidify their quantitative literacy by enhancing numeracy and problem solving skills as they investigate and use the fundamental concepts of algebra, geometry, and introductory trigonometry. * See current policy for placement criteria.
