Integrated Math 205

Teacher:Laura Dougherty
Extra Help:Monday, 3-4 pm (Room 149)

Course Description:

This course introduces students to more sophisticated topics addressed in Algebra 1 and Geometry.  Problem sets will connect math topics to the real world in meaningful ways for students to apply their logic and accuracy.  Topics covered include: linear functions and systems of linear functions, inequalities, absolute value, quadratic and polynomial functions, powers, roots and radicals.

Schedule of Major Topics Students will have regular assessments over the course of the semester to monitor their mastery of course topics. The frequency of these assessments may increase or decrease with the nature of the current material. It is reasonable to expect weekly quizzes to assess understanding of that week’s lessons. Tests will be scheduled at the conclusion of a topic. Projects work will also occur during the semester and students can expect to complete at least one unit project in each semester. Semester 1
