Mathematics 3 is a full year, high school math course for the student who has successfully completed the prerequisite course, Mathematics 2. The course includes concepts in Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. In it, students will gain solid experience with polynomials and rational expressions; radical, exponential, and logarithmic equations and functions; statistics in real life; similar figures; and trigonometric measures.

By the end of the course, students will be expected to do the following:

  • Calculate and perform operations with real and imaginary numbers.

  • Simplify and solve algebraic fractions.

  • Perform operations on polynomials, including factoring, long division, and synthetic division.

  • Solve algebraic word problems involving mixtures, money, integers, and work.

  • Evaluate and solve radical expressions and equations.

  • Graph and solve radical, exponential, and logarithmic equations.

  • Explore trigonometric identities and functions using the Unit Circle, graphs, and modeling.

  • Interpret sample surveys, normal distributions and observational studies.

  • Make geometric constructions on paper.

  • Be able to determine arcs, chords, and sectors of circles.

  • Know how to solve for angles given parallels, perpendiculars, and transversals.

  • Demonstrate how to solve for sides and angles of triangles, quadrilaterals, and polygons.
