Standard 12: Discrete Mathematics
In grades 912, the mathematics curriculum should topics from discrete
mathematics so that students can:

Represent problem situations using discrete structures such as finite graphs,
matrices, sequences, and recurrence relations

Represent and analyze finite graphs using matrices

Develop and analyze algorithms
Benchmarks 12B (Habits of Mind: Computation and Estimation)
Grades 912, page 291
Make up and write out simple algorithms for solving problems that take
several steps.
Benchmarks 12B (Habits of Mind: Computation and Estimation)
Grades 68, page 291
Insert instructions into computer spreadsheet cells to program arithmetic
calculations

Solve enumeration and finite probability problems
Benchmarks 12B (Habits of Mind: Computation and Estimation)
Grades 68, page 291
Estimate probabilities of outcomes in familiar situations, on the basis
of history or the number of possible outcomes.
and so that, in addition, collegeintending students can:
Represent and solve problems using linear programming and difference
equations
Investigate problem situations that arise in connection with computer
validation and the application of algorithms
