This course is the first course in a 3 course integrated math series. We transitioned to the integrated math series with our 2014-2015 freshmen class, and have added Integrated Math 2 and 3 as the class of 2018 has moved through CCHS. The Integrated Math series is progressive in nature, and aligns with many of the common core standards for mathematics. Integrated Math differs from the previously offered traditional math courses (i.e. Algebra 1, Geometry, etc.) in that it integrates concepts that connect across the traditionally required math courses. The Integrated Math series still covers all content covered in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2, but rather than segregating content, Integrated Math aims to align concepts from each of those 3 math courses that connect and overlap. When learners complete integrated math 3 they will be prepared to enter into Pre-Calculus. All freshmen learners will be placed in either Integrated Math 1 or Integrated Math 2, depending on their math levels, as determined by a diagnostic assessment. Those who test into Integrated Math 2 their freshmen year will be prepared to take Calculus or AP Calculus their senior year.
