Functions, Statistics & Trigonometry
Functions, Statistics, and Trigonometry is a curriculum developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. This course is primarily designed to target those students whose “home” school system offers this course. Students who are looking for a course that bridges Algebra 2/Advanced Algebra with Calculus should take Pre-Calculus.
Functions are correspondences or mappings that relate variables. Functions could be considered the most important topic in secondary school mathematics. Statistics and trigonometry are natural applications of functions that help students extend their mathematical skills and maturity as well as prepare them for future study in mathematics. The purpose of this course is to study many types of functions in great detail with a strong emphasis on statistics and trigonometry.
The course enables the student to display, describe, transform and interpret numerical information representations as data, graphs or equations. Using graphing software, the students will visualize functions, explore relations between equations and their graphs, simulate experiments, generate and analyze data and develop limit concepts.
NOTE: This is a textbook-based course with minimal digital activities. It was designed specifically for schools that require FST in their math sequence. You may want to consider Precalculus as the next course after Algebra 2 to prepare for Calculus. Please consult your counselor or NSO to determine the math sequence required for your school.
