Statistics and Probability do not appear as stand-alone topics in Montana’s Content Standards. These concepts are dispersed throughout all high school mathematics courses with an emphasis on informed decision making. The power of statistics and probability to understand the world we live in is some of the most applicable knowledge students can acquire in our classrooms.

ENROLLMENT OPENS Oct. 10, 2021 – STREAM: Functions as Objects (Oct. 31 – Nov. 21, 2021)

It’s time to fight back against the “function machine”! This course examines functions as objects in their own right, rather than treating them as rules, algorithms, or machines. We will explore Montana’s Common Core Standards for functions in high school with a focus on building functions. Finally, we will extend and complete our investigation with a modeling activity.
