# High School Mathematics

Mathematics is indispensable for understanding our world. In addition to providing the tools of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and statistics, it offers a way of thinking about patterns and relationships of quantity and space and the connections among them. Mathematical reasoning allows us to devise and evaluate methods for solving problems, make and test conjectures about properties and relationships, and model the world around us.

1.  Number Sense, Properties, and Operations 1 The complex number system includes real numbers and imaginary numbers
2 Quantitative reasoning is used to make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations
3 Art and design have purpose and function
2.  Patterns, Functions, and Algebraic Structures 1 Functions model situations where one quantity determines another and can be represented algebraically, graphically, and using tables
2 Quantitative relationships in the real world can be modeled and solved using functions
3 Expressions can be represented in multiple, equivalent forms
4 Solutions to equations, inequalities and systems of equations are found using a variety of tools
3.  Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability 1 Visual displays and summary statistics condense the information in data sets into usable knowledge
2 Statistical methods take variability into account supporting informed decisions making through quantitative studies designed to answer specific questions
3 Probability models outcomes for situations in which there is inherent randomness
4.  Shape, Dimension, and Geometric Relationships 1 Objects in the plane can be transformed, and those transformations can be described and analyzed mathematically
2 Concepts of similarity are foundational to geometry and its applications
3 Objects in the plane can be described and analyzed algebraically
4 Attributes of two- and three-dimensional objects are measurable and can be quantified
5 Objects in the real world can be modeled using geometric concepts
