a Advanced mathematics courses cover the following topics: trigonometry, trigonometry/algebra, trigonometry/analytic geometry, trigonometry/math analysis, analytic geometry, math analysis, math analysis/analytic geometry, probability and statistics, and precalculus.
NOTE: Data reflect the percentage of students in Grades 9–12 who were enrolled in each course during the 2013–14 school year, except for Algebra I, for which the data reflect the percentage of students in the grade spans listed in the column heading. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. Data have been revised since previous publication in America's Children.
