11th Grade Math Curriculum
Students in grade 11 are expected to show clear understanding of core algebraic expressions, functions, and proficiency in collecting and analyzing data. During their junior year, most students take Algebra II, while others may take Geometry or even Pre-Calculus.
Whichever math course your junior high schooler takes, a good 11th grade math curriculum should provide comprehensive knowledge of the core math skills needed for higher education. Math lessons that are interactive, with exercises that show a variety of problems, and provide plenty of opportunities for math practice to successfully reach mastery is crucial.
Learn how Time4Learning’s math curriculum for 11th grade can help your student master important skills that will prepare them for college level mathematics.
What Math Should an 11th Grader Know?
Typically, students in grade 11 take Algebra II (if they followed the traditional course sequence: Algebra I in 9th grade, and Geometry in 10th grade). However, some students may be able to take Algebra I while still in 8th grade. In those cases, both 11th and 12th grade become open for advanced math options.
At the beginning of 11th grade, a lot of the foundations of Algebra are assumed to have already been mastered. With our 11th grade math curriculum, your junior student will learn:
- How to solve equations using quadratics and complex numbers.
- How to represent relationships between quantities using variables, equations, and inequalities.
- Proper operations on polynomials, including exponents and multiple variables.
- How to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational functions and radical functions.
- To evaluate and graph trigonometric functions.
- How to use statistics and probability to represent and interpret data.
- About graphing logarithmic and trigonometric functions.
- How to represent relationships between quantities using mathematical modeling.
- Understand how to use a graphing calculator.
