Math 1 Course Description

  • Math 1 is the first math course in the North Carolina High School Math Graduation Requirement Sequence.  Math 1 students study linear, exponential, and quadratic functions.  They also learn to prove a figure is a specific type of a triangle or quadrilateral through the understanding of parallel and perpendicular lines, midpoint and distance . Math 1 students continue work from middle school on statistics, describing univariate and bivariate data distributions.  At the end of the course, students take the Math 1 End-of-Course Exam.
