Integrated Math 1

Semesters: 2

Grade: 9th

Prerequisites: None

This course is designed to meet the expectations called for by the content and practice standards of the Common Core. Students will explore solving and interpreting solutions to equations, inequalities, and systems of equations (2×2) and inequalities; creating functions and/or recursive formulas to model situations; fitting a function to a given set of data; comparing the properties of functions each represented in a different way; understanding the effect of transformations on functions and interpreting key features; creating visual displays and 6 summary statistics to describe data; justifying congruence and similarity between geometric figures based on transformations; using coordinates to prove simple geometric theorems algebraically; and writing proofs of geometric theorems. The focus for functions in Integrated Math 1 is linear and exponential.

Integrated Math 2

Semesters: 2

Grade: 9th10th

Prerequisites: Integrated Math 1/Placement Test

This course is designed to meet the expectations called for by the content and practice standards of the Common Core in the areas of algebra, functions, geometry, probability and statistics. Students will explore creating functions and/or recursive formulas to model situations; writing proofs of geometric theorems; justifying congruence and similarity between geometric figures based on transformations; using coordinates to analyze and solve problems involving geometric relationships in the coordinate plane; applying geometric relationships in modeling situations; using trigonometry to solve problems involving right triangles; and using a probability model to mathematically describe and interpret random processes. The focus for functions in Integrated Math 2 is quadratic, absolute value, and piecewise-defined functions.
