Twelfth Grade Math - 12th Grade Math Course of Study

12th Grade Math Course of Study

By

The following list provides you with the basic concepts that should be attained by the end of the school year. Mastery of the concepts at the previous grade is assumed.

Algebra II
(Not always available, depends on jurisdiction but the topics will be included in another course listing, pre-calc. etc.)

  • Properties of functions, the algebra of functions, matrices, and systems of equations. Linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, and rational functions.
  • Radical expressions and exponents.
  • Binomial theorem.
  • Graph ellipses and hyperbolas given the equations.
  • In-depth graphing, systems of linear equations and inequalities, quadratics functions and equations.
  • Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities.
  • Often includes probability and statistics using standard deviation measures to compare the scatter of sets of real-world data.
  • Permutations and combinations.

Calculus


Integrals are often omitted in many of the high school calculus curricula, however, in some courses the application of integrals will still apply. Pre-Calculus
(Sometimes this is offered in 11 or 12, this course tends to include early Calculus concepts.)

Finite Math
(Some curricula includes Finite Math which combines many of the outcomes listed in other courses listed her - will apply to 11th or 12 grades.)

Topics usually include: finance, sets, (permutations of n objects) combinatorics, probability, statistics, matrix algebra and linear equations.

Statistics
(Offered sometimes in 11th grade, more often in the 12th grade.)

  • Statistical analysis, summarize and intrepret data in meaningful ways .
  • Probability, linear and non-linear regression.
  • Hypothesis testing using Binomial, Normal, Student-t and Chi-square distributions .
  • Use the fundamental counting principle, permutations and combinations.
  • Use, interpret and apply normal and binomial probability distributions.
  • Apply transformations to statistical data.
  • Use the Central Limit Theorem.
  • Normal distribution patterns.
Finite Math
(Some curricula includes Finite Math which combines many of the outcomes listed in other courses listed her - will apply to 11th or 12 grades.)

Topics usually include: finance, sets, (permutations of n objects) combinatorics, probability, statistics, matrix algebra and linear equations.
