High School Mathematics
To prepare for college and career, your child will study mathematics across a broad spectrum, from pure mathematics to real-world applications. Numerical skill and quantitative reasoning remain crucial even as students move forward with algebra.
Algebra, functions, and geometry are important not only as mathematical subjects in themselves but also because they are the language of technical subjects and the sciences. And in a data-rich world, statistics and probability offer powerful ways of drawing conclusions from data and dealing with uncertainty. The high school standards also emphasize using mathematics creatively to analyze real-world situations — an activity sometimes called “mathematical modeling.”
For grades 9-12, the standards are grouped into grade bands of 9-10 grade standards and 11-12 grade standards.
The document below will provide information on the types of mathematics courses offered and how those courses translate into transferable skills.
