Explore the key foundations in mathematics necessary for college and career readiness
Build conceptual understanding as well as fluency
Structured around the 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions (Smith & Stein, 2018), this course is the first step of a three-year high school sequence built upon the Comprehensive Mathematics Instruction Framework to meet the expectations of College and Career Ready Standards. In this course, students will follow IM 6–12 Math™ authored by Illustrative Mathematics. The curriculum focuses on active learning through discussion, exploration, and mathematical modeling. Students will participate in low-threshold, high-ceiling tasks that explore one-variable statistics, linear equations, inequalities and systems, two-variable statistics, functions, exponential functions, quadratic functions, and quadratic equations.
