High School Math

The Real Number System (N-RN)

  • Extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents
  • Use properties of rational and irrational numbers

Quantities (N-Q)

  • Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems

Complex Numbers (N-CN)

  • Perform arithmetic operations with complex numbers
  • Represent complex numbers and their operations on the complex plane
  • Use complex numbers in polynomial identities and equations

Vector and Matrix Quantities (N-VM)

  • Represent and model with vector quantities
  • Perform operations on vectors
  • perform operations on matrices and use matrices in applications

High School Mathematics, according to California Common Core State Standards (CCSS), has two trajectories. In accordance with the intended trajectory of the CCSS, an integrated pathway exists that builds on the momentum and plan established by the K-8 grade standards.

The CCSS are broken down in to sub categories at the High School level:

  • Number and Quantity
  • Algebra
  • Functions
  • Modeling
  • Geometry
  • Probability and Statistics

Most schools have retained the standard course names and divide the standards by course.

Courses by name:

  • Algebra I
  • Geometry
  • Algebra II
  • Statistics
