Grade 10  Mathematics
Core: Geometry (Credit: 1.00)
Geometry provides a curriculum focused on the mastery of critical skills and the understanding of key geometric concepts. Through a "DiscoveryConfirmationPractice" based exploration of geometric concepts, students are challenged to work toward a mastery of computational skills, to deepen their conceptual understanding of key ideas and solution strategies, and to extend their knowledge in a variety of problemsolving applications. Course topics include reasoning, proof, and the creation of a sound mathematical argument; points, lines, and angles; triangles; quadrilaterals and other polygons; circles; coordinate geometry; and threedimensional solids. The course concludes with a look at special topics in geometry, such as constructions, symmetry, tessellations, fractals, and nonEuclidean geometry.
Within each Geometry lesson, students are supplied with a scaffolded notetaking guide, called a "Study Sheet," as well as a poststudy "Checkup" activity, providing them the opportunity to hone their computational skills by working through a lowstakes, 10question problem set before moving on to a formal assessment. Unitlevel Geometry assessments include a computerscored test and a scaffolded, teacherscored test.
To assist students for whom language presents a barrier to learning or who are not reading at grade level, Geometry includes audio resources in both Spanish and English.
The content is based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards and is aligned to state standards.

Core: Mathematics II (Credit: 1.00)Mathematics II extends students' geometric knowledge and introduces them to quadratic expressions, equations, and functions, exploring the relationship between these and their linear and exponential counterparts. Students learn through discovery and application, developing the skills they need to break down complex challenges and demonstrate their knowledge in new situations.
Course topics include extending the number system; quadratic functions and modeling; expressions and equations; applications of probability; similarity, righttriangle trigonometry, and proof; and circles with and without coordinates.
This course supports all students as they develop computational fluency and deepen conceptual understanding. Students begin each lesson by discovering new concepts through guided instruction, and then confirm their understanding in an interactive, feedbackrich environment. Modeling activities equip students with tools for analyzing a variety of realworld scenarios and mathematical ideas. Journaling activities allow students to reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct arguments, critique reasoning, and communicate precisely. Performance tasks prepare students to synthesize their knowledge in novel, realworld scenarios and require that they make sense of multifaceted problems and persevere in solving them.

Math Foundations I (Credit: 1.00)Math Foundations I offers a structured remediation solution based on the NCTM Curricular Focal Points and is designed to expedite student progress in acquiring 3rd to 5thgrade skills. The course is appropriate for use as remediation for students in grades 6 to 12. When used in combination, Math Foundations I and Math Foundations II (covering grades 6 to 8) effectively remediate computational skills and conceptual understanding needed to undertake high schoolâ€“level math courses with confidence.
Math Foundations I empowers students to progress at their optimum pace through over 80 semester hours of interactive instruction and assessment spanning 3rd to 5thgrade math skills. Carefully paced, guided instruction is accompanied by interactive practice that is engaging and accessible. Formative assessments help students to understand areas of weakness and improve performance, while summative assessments chart progress and skill development. Early in the course, students develop general strategies for honing their problemsolving skills. Subsequent units provide a problemsolving strand that asks students to practice applying specific math skills to a variety of realworld contexts.
