• Be able to reason, order, compare and solve multi-step problems with rational and irrational numbers.
• Understand the complex number system, be able to investigate and solve a number of problems and use the coordinate system.
• Problem solving with negative and positive integers. (Add, subtract, multiply and divide.)
• Understand the divisibility rules, square roots and powers.

• Apply measurement knowledge to 2 and 3 dimensional figures accurately including distances and angles and a more complex plane.
• Solve a variety of word problems involving capacity, mass and time.
• Use the Pythagorean theorem.

• Apply trigonometry to problem situations involving triangles. Apply transformations, coordinates and vectors to solve problems.
• Investigate transformation in terms of rotation, reflection, translations, dilations, congruence, symmetry, and isometric.
• Derive equation of a circle, ellipse, parabolas, and hyperbolas and their properties and study quadratic and conic sections.
• Problem solving for questions involving angles including those formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal.
• Solve multi-step problems using linear equations and investigate the properties of slope.

• Investigate situations involving linear, quadratic, polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions.
• Be able to pose and prove a variety of theorems.
• Use matrices for representing data.
• Master problems using a variety of polynomials (with first degree) using the four operations and the first degree.
• Use inverse operations to solve variables in a formula.

• Design statistical experiments, apply random variables and use real world situations. Draw inferences and display summaries using the appropriate charts/graphs.
• Analyze, support and argue conclusions based on statistical information.
• Show and analyze finite graphs using matrices.
