Math 3 Course Description
Math 3 is the third math course in the North Carolina High School Math Graduation Requirement Sequence. Math 3 students study piecewise, polynomial, rational, and sinusoidal functions. Geometric units focus on circles and their properties and modeling with 2D and 3D geometric figures. Probability rules learned in previous courses are extended to the statistics of making inferences and justifying conclusions. At the end of the course studnets take the Math 3 End-of-Course (EOC) Exam.
