**Question:**hi , i am going to send my son to USA for his high school . i find that grade 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 maths curricula is consolidated . can anyone give me an approximate idea that how the curricula is usually divided by teachers ? i know different states have different syllabi but if you know any website or have any information of the approximate division of the syllabi it will be of great help . basically i am asking for grade 9 ,10 which toipics will my son be asked to take on ? will he have to do calculus in grade 10 ?

grade 9: algebra I

grade 10: geometry

grade 11: algebra II

grade 12: pre-calculas (optional, but don't have to take math for this year)

its based on how smart your son is but usually in 9th grade you take algebra then in 10th grade it is geometry 11th grade algebra 2 and 12th grade would be pre calculus or if a year ahead calculus.

This is how it went for me, and as far as I know it's a pretty typical curricula.

9th- Algebra

10th- Geometry

11th- Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry

12th- Calculus

I'm pretty sure that's how it went.

Pre Algebra 9th grade

Algebra I 10th grade

Geometry 11th grade

Algebra II 12th grade

On these three you can double up...

at my school they werent required we only had to h ave 4 maths to graduate, but I took Pre-Cal and Calculus.. I love math...

Pre Calculus

Calculus

Trigonometry

Good Luck!

Most states have very similar standards. 3 or 4 math credits in High School (grades 9 - 12) to graduate. They go from Elemantary Algebra, Goemetry, Algebra, Algebra 2, Trigenomitry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Then of course you have you AP (Advanced) in each of them. most students can complete these grades with never seeing calc or trig. if your son has an apptitude for mathmatics then he could easily advance to higher levels of math in his high school term.

High school curriculum varies tremendously. No way to answer this. I've seen public schools that only offered up to algebra 2. No teacher was even qualified to teach beyond that. They sent you to a community college if you needed to go beyond that level.
