Course 2 (Advanced Algebra, Geometry, Statistics):
Course 2 is the second year of the Core-Plus Mathematics Project’s (CPMP) four year integrated
math program. It combines Advanced Algebra, with Geometry, Trigonometry, and Statistics. Main
topics include: Matrix operations, solving matrix equations, and solving systems of equations in
Standard Form, Slope-Intercept Form, and Matrix Form. Transformations are presented on the
coordinate plane and focus on reflections, rotations, translations, and size changes of both lines
and polygons. Perimeter, area, and volume is revisited in the context of the coordinate plane and
symbolic rules are used to represent various transformations in coordinate and matrix form. A
multi-representational approach is used to study Families of Functions and their characteristics,
specifically symmetry, intercepts, increasing vs. decreasing, and asymptotic behavior. The
properties of exponents are investigated along with radical expressions in the larger context of
Radical and Fractional Power Models. The three basic trigonometric functions of Sine, Cosine,
and Tangent are introduced as well as right triangle trigonometry. Topics in Statistics and
Probability include association, correlation coefficients, lines of best fit, and making predictions
from patterns of association. Students visualize and build understanding about situations involving
chance by using simulation and mathematical analysis to construct probability distributions.
