Dual \Credit may be earned through Ivy Tech course number MATH 135.
GEOMETRY
Full year course, 1 credit per semester – Prerequisites: For Geometry, the Prerequisites are Algebra I and Algebra II; for Geometry CP, they are Algebra I and Algebra II CP; passed with a “C” or better; for Geometry H, it is teacher recommendation (if they took Algebra I in 7th or 8th grade, they must have passed with an 80% or higher) (DOE Course Code: 2532)
This course is taught in different classes based on learning styles and student skill level. Geometry H operates at a deeper, more challenging level and runs at a quicker pace.
Geometry students examine the properties of two and threedimensional objects. Proof and logic, as well as investigative strategies in drawing conclusions, are stressed. Properties and relationships of geometric objects include the study of: (1) points, lines, angles, and planes; (2) polygons, with a special focus on quadrilaterals, triangles, and right triangles; (3) circles; and (4) polyhedra and other solids.
INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS I
Full year course, 1 credit per semester – Prerequisites: teacher/counselor recommendation (DOE Course Code: 2554)
Integrated Mathematics I formalizes and extends the mathematics students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas deepen and extend understanding of linear relationships, in part by contrasting them with exponential phenomena, and in part by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Integrated Mathematics I uses properties and theorems involving congruent figures to deepen and extend understanding of geometric knowledge from prior grades. The final unit in the course ties together the algebraic and geometric ideas studied. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS II
Full year course, 1 credit per semester – Prerequisites: Algebra I or teacher/counselor recommendation (DOE Course Code: 2556)
Integrated Mathematics II focuses on quadratic expressions, equations, and functions by comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships from Integrated Mathematics I. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability and counting methods, including their use in making and evaluating decisions. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. Circles, with their quadratic algebraic representations, rounds out the course. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS III
Full year course, 1 credit per semester – Prerequisites: Integrated Mathematics II (DOE Course Code: 2558)
Integrated Mathematics III provides students the opportunity to pull together and apply the accumulation of learning that they have from their previous courses. They apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data. Students expand their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. They expand their study of right triangle trigonometry to include general triangles. Finally, students bring together all of their experiences with functions and geometry to create models and solve contextual problems. The eight Process Standards for Mathematics apply throughout the course. Together with the content standards, the Process Standards prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
