In this course you will

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.
