Math 2 Course Description

  • Math 2 is the second math course in the North Carolina High School Math Graduation Requirement Sequence.  Math 2 students study quadratic, square root and inverse variation functions.  In geometry units, students study rigid motions and prove theorems about lines, angles and properties of triangles.  The focus is on congruence, similiarity and right triangle trigonometry.  The work of middle school probability is extended to develop understanding of conditional probability, independence and rules of probability.
