Applications of Advanced Mathematics

Applications of Advanced Math Teacher

Williams, April (408) 366-7388 ex.4850 Math Teacher

Course Description

This course is designed for college-bound students who want an advanced mathematics course after Algebra 2 (Common Core Plus) that focuses on real-world applications in fields such as business, finance, politics, architecture, gaming, and natural science. Students who complete this class will be prepared for Advanced Placement or college level statistics.  By the end of the course, students will have mastered the Competencies in Mathematics Expected of Entering College Students listed for majors outside of STEM fields.

The course will consist of four core units: geometry and trigonometry, mathematical modeling, statistics and the mathematics of decision-making. To help students understand that math makes sense outside of a textbook, the course will incorporate real world data and technological tools.  The course will be built around collaborative tasks that require students to persevere in solving complex, unfamiliar problems, choose and use mathematical models to represent their thinking.  Students will be asked to clarify their thinking, verify the reasonableness of their conclusions, explain their solutions in writing, and critique the reasoning of others. As the course progresses, students will be expected to communicate their ideas with increasing accuracy, objectivity, clarity, and concision.  Students will be encouraged to explore multiple pathways toward a solution to further enhance their understanding.
