Integrated Math III
The Integrated Mathematics II course begins with an exploration of absolute value and quadratic models, thus extending students’ understanding of function families as students compare these new functions to linear and exponential functions. Through their work with quadratic equations, students go beyond the real number system into the system of complex numbers. Students develop the tools of geometry, including transformations, proof, and constructions, and use these tools throughout the course as students formalize geometric concepts studied in earlier courses and extend those ideas to new geometric concepts presented in the high school standards, including right triangle trigonometry and circles with their connections to quadratic expressions and representations. Additionally, students build on probability concepts from work in prior courses as they investigate the link between probability and data and use probabilistic thinking to make and evaluate decisions. There is a focus on modeling, problem-solving, and proof throughout the course.
