SpringBoard Integrated Mathematics is a three-course series that emphasizes the connections among algebra, geometry, statistics, data analysis, and probability. Each course includes topics from these content areas. This integrated approach helps students gain a deep understanding of key math concepts and how they’re connected.

Integrated Mathematics I

Integrated Mathematics I students:

  • Gain an understanding of the properties of real numbers.
  • Formalize the language of functions.
  • Explore the behavior of functions numerically, graphically, analytically, and verbally.
  • Compare the relative rate of change of linear and exponential functions.
  • Use technology to discover relationships, test inferences, and solve problems.
  • Write expressions, equations, and inequalities from physical models.
  • Summarize, represent, and interpret statistical models.
  • Communicate mathematics understanding formally and informally.

Integrated Mathematics II

Integrated Mathematics II students:

  • Work with functions graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.
  • Read, analyze, and solve right triangle and trigonometric functions within contextual situations.
  • Explore and understand similarity in terms of transformations and prove geometric theorems.
  • Explain work clearly so that the reasoning process can be followed throughout the solution.
  • Utilize technology to discover relationships, test inferences, and solve problems.
  • Understand and use the rules of probability to compute probabilities and evaluate outcomes of decisions.

Integrated Mathematics III

Integrated Mathematics III students:

  • Further study the algebra of functions.
  • Read and analyze contextual situations involving exponential and logarithmic functions.
  • Develop area formulas necessary for determining volumes of rotational solids, solids with known cross sections, and area beneath a curve.
  • Learn optimization problems.
  • Learn the concept of infinite sum as a limit of partial sums.
  • Work with statistics in numerical summaries, calculations using the normal curve, and the modeling of data.
  • Apply technology to discover relationships, test conjectures, and solve problems.

Precalculus

Precalculus students:

  • Gain an introductory understanding of convergence and divergence.
  • Collect, analyze, and draw conclusions from data.
  • Solve problems in contextual situations dealing with polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
  • Model motion using parametric equations and vectors.
  • Develop an intuitive understanding of limits and continuity.
  • Justify their reasoning and understanding verbally, in writing, and with models.
  • Use technology to explore and support conjectures.
