11th Grade – Math (FST)

Philosophy
God created humans with a rational and inquiring mind. He blessed them with the ability to count, tell time and make change. In Mathematics we will explore and develop this God given gift systematically. As the Bible says “precept upon precept, line upon line …” (Isaiah 28:10), students will systematically build up their knowledge of Mathematics. As they learn the different disciplines of Mathematics students will recognize the logic and order God imbued in the world and by implication that God is a god of logic and order. They will develop a greater understanding and appreciation of God through their study of mathematics.

Course Objectives
Functions, Statistics, and Trigonometry (FST) will strengthen students’ understanding of concepts taught in Algebra II. (ESLR: ET)  First, students will investigate a variety of functions in greater detail.  Next, they will examine many facets of statistics, including probability, simulations, permutations, combinations, and distributions.  Finally, students will expand their knowledge of trigonometric ratios, exploring trigonometric relations, functions, laws, and applications and will be able to communicate this knowledge in standard mathematical notation. (ESLR: DC) This will provide a strong basis or Mathematics for the rest of the students lives. (ESLR: NLL) At each step in this course we want to enable students to see how God’s plans for this universe fit in order (ESLR: RUC) and will also explore the many and diverse, geographically and cultural, histories behind some of the main ideas we meet. (ESLR: SCW)  This course will prepare students for College Algebra or Precalculus at the college level. (ESLR: NLL)
