# Math

Oklahoma Academic Standards serve as expectations for what students should know and be able to do by the end of the school year. These standards were written by Oklahomans for Oklahoma.

## Algebra I

This course is a standards-based curriculum that embraces the use of technology to support and advance the mathematical content. The content includes: number sense, algebraic operations, polynomials, exponents, expressions, functions and relations, linear, functions and slope, geometry measurement and formulas, data analysis, statistics and probability, tables, graphs, charts and scatter plots. Real-world applications and problem solving is the foundation applied to the teaching and learning of Algebra I. Visual and physical models, calculators, and other technologies are recommended when appropriate and should be used to enhance both instruction and assessment.

## Algebra II

This course is a continuation of the concepts and skills of Algebra I. Applications and problem-solving strategies are stressed. The following topics are covered: real numbers and equations; equalities and inequalities; relations, functions and their graphs; systems of equations and related inequalities; matrices and determinants; polynomials; rational expressions; irrational and complex numbers as related to solving equations; the solving and graphing of conic section polynomials; exponential and logarithmic functions; finite and infinite sequences and series, and probability and statistics.

## College and Career Math Ready

This course is designed as a transition course to college-level coursework and emphasizes understanding of mathematics concepts rather than memorizing procedures.

## Algebra Fundamentals

This course includes basic numerical operations and number sense, integer operations, rational expressions, simplifying and evaluating algebraic expressions, solving one and two-step equations in one variable, and simplifying polynomials in the first semester. The second semester will begin the study of Algebra I and will include applying the laws of exponents, absolute value, rational expressions, radical expressions, polynomial operations and linear functions. The geometric concepts of similarity, area, volume, and ratio,  proportions and statistical concepts of stem and leaf plots, tables, graphs, charts, and scatter plots will be integrated throughout the course. Real-world applications and problem solving are the foundations of this course. Visual and physical models, calculators, and other technologies are recommended when appropriate and should be used to enhance both instruction and assessment. Students may take Algebra I at the completion of this course or may be enrolled concurrently in Algebra I.

## AP Calculus AB

This course focuses on developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. A multi representational approach to calculus is emphasized with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations are also stressed. The student may earn college credit for success on the Advanced Placement Examination.

## Pre-AP Combined Geometry

This course provides a strong emphasis on the problem solving applications and the higher order thinking skills that lay the foundation for success in Advanced Placement Calculus and Statistics courses. This course deals with the basic structure of plane and solid geometry. It includes a study of the elements of geometry assets; induction as a method of discovery; deductive reasoning and the nature of proof; angles, lines, two and three-dimensional figures and their relationships; congruency and similarity; coordinate geometry, and area and volume.

## AP Calculus BC

This course is an extension of AP Calculus AB. It is concerned with developing the students’ understanding of the concepts of calculus and providing experience with its methods and applications. A multi-representational approach to calculus is emphasized with concepts, results, and problems being expressed geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally. The connections among these representations are also stressed. The student may earn college credit for success on the Advanced Placement Examination.

## Combined Geometry

This course focuses on the basic structure of plane and solid geometry. It includes a study of the elements of geometry assets; induction as a method of discovery; deductive reasoning and the nature of proof; angles, lines, two and three-dimensional figures and their relationships; congruency and similarity; coordinate geometry, and area and volume.

## Pre-Calculus

This course is a combination of college algebra and trigonometry. It should be taken as a prerequisite to calculus. The study of pre-calculus will include the algebra concepts of linear, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and polynomial functions, the study of graphs and their transformations and applications, conics, vectors, parametric equations, and matrices. The concepts to be covered include trigonometric functions and their inverses, identities, solutions of triangles, graphs of circular functions, polar coordinates and graphs, and complex numbers.

## AP Statistics

This course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Applications and problem solving strategies are stressed. The following topics will be covered: display of data, frequency distributions; measures of central tendency, variability, and correlation; sampling and its role in statistical claims; design, conduct, and interpretation of a statistical experiment to study a problem; experimental and theoretical probability, simulations, random variables, and the discrete probability distributions. The student may earn college credit for successful scoring on the Advanced Placement Examination.
