Advanced Functions and Modeling incorporates functions, statistics and probability as students synthesize their prior knowledge and solve challenging real-world problems. Students learn through discovery and application, developing the skills they need to break down complex challenges and demonstrate their knowledge in new situations.
The first semester focuses on functions — exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric — as well as sequences and series. The second semester focuses on statistics and probability. Students will study statistical analysis of univariate data, data gathering, bivariate data and regression, probability applications, counting principles, permutations and combinations, as well as distributions. Students will deepen conceptual understanding on these topics while exploring real-world applications. Throughout the course, students are evaluated through a diversity of assessments which will prepare students for state-level final exams.
This course is aligned with the North Carolina standards for Advanced Functions and Modeling.
