COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES: The focus of Integrated Math 2 is on quadratic expressions, equations, and functions; comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships from Integrated Math 1 as organized into critical areas or units. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability and counting methods. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. Circles, with their quadratic algebraic representations, complete the course. Aligned to Ohio’s New Learning Standards in Mathematics for the integrated pathway, the Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. This course replaces Geometry in the traditional pathway.
6. Protractor (required) / Compass (Optional)

GRADE BREAKDOWN: Online grades at: https://nolmsted.ps.nwoca.org/public/home.html
Extra Credit Extra Credit is rarely offered in this course.
GRADING SCALE: The grading scale will follow that of North Olmsted High School. Please refer to Student Handbook for questions regarding the calculation of grades.
MODULAR ASSESSMENTS: Assessments will be given at the end of each Module. The point value of the assessment will vary depending on the content. Students must discuss with me a possible time to make up a missed assessment. An unexcused absence on the day of the assessment will result in a score of 0. Any assessment not made up within 1 week will result in a score of 0.
HOMEWORK: Assignments will be given daily and are due the next school
day after being assigned. These assignments are checked for completeness, not
correctness. It is the student's responsibility to understand the material.
Homework missed due to excused absences can be turned in without penalty within
the number of days missed. Please refer to the Student Handbook regarding make
EXTRA HELP: Students seeking extra help should come to room H229 during SOAR period.
DISCLAIMER: This is not meant to be all encompassing. As the year progresses, there may be a need for additional assignments or modifications to expectations.
