**About Integrated Math I:**

- Is the first course of three courses (Math I, Math II, Math III)
- Integrates Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II so that students are exposed to concepts from all three subjects in each year
- Incorporates Common Core State Standards that involve critical thinking and discovery
- Is a rigorous high school course that will challenge and push every student regardless of his/her previous math experience

**Here’s what we’ll do:**

- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
*we understand what a problem is asking and we keep at it until we solve it.*

- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
*we can think deeply and try different methods in our work*

- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
*we can justify our work and find the errors in someone else’s work*

- Model with mathematics.
*we see the math in situations and can represent it in different ways*

- Use appropriate tools strategically
*we know which math tools work best in different situations*

- Attend to precision
*we pay attention to the details in our work and our speech involving math*

- Look for and make use of structure
*we notice that math has consistent rules that allows us number flexibility*

- Look for and and express regularity in repeated reasoning
*we look for patterns and create shortcuts*

* Mrs. McKay teaches Integrated Math I at the San Diego Academy of Creative and Critical Thought. She is a lifelong learner and believes that everyone can be successful in math.*
