Integrated Math 1

Course Description

In Integrated Math 1, students use arithmetic properties of subsets of integers, rational, irrational and real numbers by simplifying expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities, graphing equations, finding the equation of a line, working with monomials and polynomials, and factoring and completing the square. Students use properties of the number system to judge the validity of results, justifying each step of the procedure to prove or disprove statements. Students compute perimeter, circumference, area, volume, and surface area of geometric figures. Students also use basic trigonometric functions defined by the angles of a right triangle.
