Unit 1 (sample material)  

Patterns
of Change Develops student ability to recognize and describe important patterns that relate quantitative variables, to use data tables, graphs, words, and symbols to represent the relationships, and to use reasoning and calculating tools to answer questions and solve problems. 
Topics
include: Variables and functions, algebraic expressions and recurrence relations, coordinate graphs, data tables and spreadsheets, and equations and inequalities. 

Unit 2  
Patterns
in Data Develops student ability to summarize, represent, and interpret realworld data on a single count or measurement variable through the use of graphical displays of the distribution, measures of center, and measures of spread. 
Topics
include: Distributions of data and their shapes, as displayed in dot plots, histograms, and box plots; measures of center (mean and median) and their properties; measures of spread including interquartile range and standard deviation and their properties; and percentiles and outliers. 

Unit 3  
Linear
Functions Develops student ability to recognize and represent linear relationships between variables and to use tables, graphs, and algebraic expressions for linear functions to solve problems in situations that involve constant rate of change or slope. 
Topics
include: Linear functions, slope of a line, rate of change, modeling linear data patterns, solving linear equations and inequalities, equivalent linear expressions. 

Unit 4  
Discrete
Mathematical Modeling Develops student ability in modeling, reasoning, and problem solving as they use vertexedge graphs to model and solve problems about networks, paths, and relations. 
Topics
include: Vertexedge graphs, mathematical modeling, optimization, algorithmic problem solving, using Euler paths to find efficient routes, using vertex coloring to avoid conflicts, and matrix representations to aid interpretation. 

Unit 5  
Exponential
Functions Develops student ability to recognize and represent exponential growth and decay patterns, to express those patterns in symbolic forms, to solve problems that involve exponential change, and to use properties of exponents to write expressions in equivalent forms. 
Topics
include: Exponential growth and decay functions, data modeling, growth and decay rates, halflife and doubling time, compound interest, and properties of exponents. 

Unit 6  
Patterns
in Shape Develops student ability to visualize and describe two and threedimensional shapes, to represent them with drawings, to examine shape properties through both experimentation and careful reasoning, and to use those properties to solve problems. 
Topics
include: Triangle Inequality, congruence conditions for triangles, special quadrilaterals and quadrilateral linkages, Pythagorean Theorem, properties of polygons, tilings of the plane, properties of polyhedra, cylinders, cones, and the Platonic solids. 

Unit 7  
Quadratic
Functions Develops student ability to recognize and represent quadratic relations between variables using data tables, graphs, and symbolic formulas, to solve problems involving quadratic functions, and to express quadratic polynomials in equivalent factored and expanded forms. 
Topics
include: Quadratic functions and their graphs, applications to projectile motion and economic problems, expanding and factoring quadratic expressions, and solving quadratic equations by the quadratic formula and calculator approximation. 

Unit 8  
Patterns
in Chance Develops student ability to solve problems involving chance by constructing sample spaces of equallylikely outcomes or geometric models and to use simulation to decide whether a model is consistent with the data. 
Topics
include: Sample spaces, equallylikely outcomes, probability distributions, mutually exclusive (disjoint) events, Addition Rule, union, intersection, twoway frequency tables, simulation, random digits, discrete and continuous random variables, Law of Large Numbers, and geometric probability.
