Secondary Mathematics III: Semester 1
Description: This integrated math course is a study of the properties of inequalities, problems solved using algebraic and geometric concepts, radical expressions and simple radical equations, equations and inequalities, linear relations and functions, polynomial functions, rational functions, systems of equations and inequalities, and matrices.
Throughout their studies, students will be expected to reason abstractly and quantitatively; construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of them; model with mathematics; use appropriate tools strategically; attend to precision; look for and make use of structure; and look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. By the end of this course, students will be able to apply properties of linear equations to linear inequalities; solve problems using fundamentals of algebra and geometry; evaluate radical expressions; solve for unknown side lengths of right triangles using Pythagorean Theorem; apply properties of linear inequalities to compound inequalities; distinguish between linear relations and linear functions; analyze and solve special functions; factor and solve polynomial expressions other than quadratics; solve rational functions, including adding, subtracting, and simplifying rational functions; use substitution and elimination to solve systems of equations and inequalities; add and multiply matrices, including solving matrices using appropriate identity matrices; and factor and divide monomials and polynomials.
