Use problem-solving skills to better understand the real world
Learn by solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts
Understand the why behind the how in mathematics
Structured around the 5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions (Smith & Stein, 2018), this course is the second step of a three-year high school sequence built upon the Comprehensive Mathematics Instruction Framework to meet the expectations of College and Career Ready Standards. Students will participate in low-threshold, high ceiling tasks that explore constructions and rigid Transformations, congruence, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, solid geometry, coordinate geometry, circles, and conditional probability. Note: A prerequisite for this course is Algebra I.
