General Description

Advanced Mathematics is made up of five instructional components: Introduction of the New Increment, Examples with Complete Solutions, Practice of the Increment, Daily Problem Sets, and Cumulative Tests. In Advanced Mathematics, topics from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, and mathematical analysis are interwoven to form a fully integrated text. A rigorous treatment of Euclidean geometry is also presented. Word problems are developed throughout the problem sets and become progressively more elaborate. With this practice, students will be able to solve challenging problems such as rate problems and work problems involving abstract quantities. The graphing calculator is used to graph functions and perform data analysis. Conceptually oriented problems that prepare students for college entrance exams (such as the ACT and SAT) are included in the problem sets.

Advanced Mathematics includes such topics as:

  • permutations and combinations
  • trigonometric identities
  • inverse trigonometric functions
  • conic sections
  • graphs of sinusoids
  • rectangular and polar representation of complex numbers
  • De Moivre's theorem
  • matrices and determinants
  • the binomial theorem
  • the rational roots theorem

    Please note: Solutions Manual is sold separately; it is not part of the homeschool kit. Although the homeschool packet contains all of the answers, the solutions manual contains the answers as well as solution details for each problem.
