All West Virginia teachers are responsible for classroom instruction that integrates content standards and objectives and mathematical habits of mind.  Students in this course will focus on the need to extend the set of rational numbers, introducing real and complex numbers so that all quadratic equations can be solved. Students will explore the link between probability and data through conditional probability and counting methods, including their use in making and evaluating decisions. The study of similarity will lead students in Mathematics II to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connections to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. Students will explore circles, with their quadratic algebraic representations.  Mathematical habits of mind, which should be integrated in these content areas, include:  making sense of problems and persevering in solving them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively; constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others; modeling with mathematics; using appropriate tools strategically; attending to precision, looking for and making use of structure; and looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning.  Students will continue developing mathematical proficiency in a developmentally-appropriate progressions of standards.  Continuing the skill progressions from previous courses, the following chart represents the mathematical understandings that will be developed:
