10th Grade Integrated Math III
Instructor: Elsa Rivera
East House - Room 2009
Integrated Math III includes Arithmetic with polynomials and rational expressions and understanding the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomial Functions. Students will use polynomial identities to solve for problems; they will also learn to solve equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning. They will represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically. When in comes to functions, students will interpret functions, analyze functions using different representations, Linear, Quadratic and exponential functions, trigonometric functions using the unit circle. For the Geometry part we will use the theorems and application in circles, translate between the geometric descriptions and the equation for conic sections. When it comes to statistics and probability students will be interpreting categorical and Quantitative Data, making Inferences and Justifying Conclusions.as part of their Olympic Statistical Ranking Component.
During first part of first semester, students will be working on Statistics, Polynomial and Quadratic Functions. Students will be using the statistical analysis as a component of the Olympic Project. In addition, during the second Part of first semester there is Desmos Component as part of their Olympic Project. At the same time, the curriculum covers chapters 1, 3, 4, 2, 5, and 6. At the end of each chapter there is a unit exam to evaluate students’ progress.
Second semester, students will be using Desmos.com to evaluate and present their second semester project. During second semester we will be covering next chapters: 7, 8, 12, 10, 11, and Linear Algebra if time permits. Throughout the year students will be learning skills that are necessary to perform their component task when it comes to Mathematics. For example, after students have received lectures on statistical analysis, it is expected to be able to apply their knowledge in to their statistical ranking component of their Olympic project.
