Extending their understanding of complex numbers to points in the complex plane, students come to understand that multiplying a given set of points by a complex number amounts to rotating and dilating those points in the complex plane about zero. Matrices are studied as tools for performing rotations and reflections of the coordinate plane, as well as for solving systems of linear equations. Inverse functions are explored as students study the relationship between exponential and logarithmic functions and restrict the domain of the trigonometric functions to allow for their inverses. The year concludes with a capstone module on modeling with probability and statistics. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
