Funded by the National Science Foundation, *Core-Plus Mathematics* is a four-year, international-like high school mathematics program that aligns well with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, including the Standards of Mathematical Practice.

Course 4 continues the preparation of students for college mathematics, with a focus on preparation for calculus. The text is designed so that students learn important mathematics and mathematical habits of mind through inquiry and problem-based investigations featuring realistic contexts.

*Core-Plus Mathematics* provides extensive teacher support and a suite of free available mathematical software tools

- Development of mathematics as an active science of patterns involving quantity and change, shape and motion, data and chance, and counting and algorithms
- Courses organized around interwoven strands of
- algebra and functions
- geometry and trigonometry
- statistics and probability
- discrete mathematics
- Mathematical strands developed in coherent, focused units connected by fundamental unifying ideas
- Mathematics developed in context with an emphasis on applications and mathematical modeling
- Student-centered investigations promote active learning through problem solving
