The Secondary Mathematics I course is written to align with the first of three courses in the integrated pathway of the Common Core State Standards, as described in Appendix A. Like all courses in the integrated pathway, it contains standards from each of the conceptual categories in the standards, including:

    • Number and quantity;

    • Algebra;

    • Functions;

    • Geometry; and

    • Statistics and probability.

    The major purpose of Secondary Math I is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades, working with linear and exponential functions, using transformations to understand symmetries and congruence, solving systems of equations and inequalities, and analyzing data. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, create mathematical learning experiences based upon reasoning and sensemaking, building perseverance and problem-solving skills, and rich in mathematical discourse.
