Explore key concepts like constructions and rigid Transformations, congruence, similarity and right triangle trigonometry
Engage in active learning through discussion, exploration, and mathematical modeling
Structured around the 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions (Smith & Stein, 2018), this course is the second 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 constructions and rigid Transformations, congruence, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, solid geometry, coordinate geometry, circles, and conditional probability. Note: A prerequisite for this course is Algebra I.
