Unified Modern Mathematics, Course 2, Part 2.
Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Study, New York, NY.
Topics included in Part 2 of Course II are: real functions; descriptive statistics; transformations in the plane; length, area, and volume; combinatorics; and mass points. The chapter on real functions includes a discussion of properties of functions, composition of functions, inverses of functions and other topics. The chapter on descriptive statistics discusses the graphical representation of sets of data, summation notation, the arithmetic mean, measures of dispersion, and Chebyshev's Inequality. Reflections, translations, rotations, dilations, and similarities are introduced in the section on transformations of the plane. Lengths of line segments, areas of various geometric regions, and volumes of geometric solids are also studied. The Combinatorics chapter considers the counting principle, permutations, and the binomial theorem. The appendix offers a discussion of mass points in the plane and in space. (FL)
