Summary: This course is designed to prepare students for Integrated 1. It uses a problem-based approach with concrete models. The course helps students to develop multiple strategies to solve problems and to recognize the connections between concepts. The lessons in the course embed the “Mathematical Practices” of the California Common Core State Content Standards released in June 2010. The course is structured around problems and investigations that build conceptual understanding of these topics and an awareness of connections between different ideas. Students are encouraged to investigate concepts, communicate their thinking and generalize.
