In this second course in the high school integrated sequence, students continue their
investigation of important algebraic and geometric ideas. Students use the algebraic tools and techniques they developed in their prior course as they deepen their study of functional relationships. Students also continue to apply the tools of transformation and construction, as well as formal mathematical reasoning, logic, and proof, to further their investigation of geometric ideas.

Agile Mind lessons foster student engagement and deep mathematical understanding through rich problem-solving activities, real-world connections, powerful visualizations and animations, and frequent opportunities for student discourse and collaboration.

In this course, students will:

  • Solve real-world problems using a variety of tools
  • Model and solve important problems with absolute value and quadratic functions and related equations
  • Extend their understanding of exponents to rational exponents
  • Develop an understanding of inverse relations
  • Use the classical methods of finding the area of two-dimensional shapes, including quadrilaterals and circles
  • Learn basic geometry of three-dimensional shapes including methods of finding simple volumes and surface areas
  • Investigate and solve problems involving the trigonometry of right triangles
  • Explore and relationships related to lines, segments, arc length, and sectors of circles
  • Use geometric representations and symbols to solve problems and prove theorems
  • Continue to strengthen their knowledge of the connections between algebra and geometry
  • Extend their understanding of probability as they investigate conditional probability and independence

Topics are designed to provide ample opportunity for students to develop their ability to apply important mathematical processes and practices as they master the content described in next-generation college and career readiness standards.

Rigorous Core Instruction

Our approach to instruction deepens students’ commitment to learning, encouraging their persistence in the face of academic challenge.

Our programs include:

  • Comprehensive, standards-centered lessons with real-world contexts emphasizing problem solving and critical thinking
  • Visually rich animations and simulations that deepen understanding of central concepts
  • Multiple representations of mathematical relationships that develop stronger and more flexible understandings
  • Interactive formative assessment items that personalize learning
  • Preparation for high-stakes assessments with both automatically graded and open-response questions
  • Real-time reports that move teachers and learners to action

Robust Supports for Teachers

Much is said and written about the increasing demands on educators, and Agile Mind has pioneered in applying a blended approach to creating respectful supports for professional learning needs. In addition to online professional supports, educators and administrators  in face-to-face seminars and customized mentoring. They are equipped with comprehensive and  high-quality resources to manage their demanding workloads, improve their expertise, and dramatically improve outcomes for their students.

Supports for teachers encompass:

  • Research-based, standards-centered instructional resources
  • Detailed mapping of specific standards to instruction and assessments
  • Visualizations of key mathematical concepts that increase students engagement and learning
  • Formative assessment tools that provide rapid feedback
  • Real-time reports that save time in identifying progress and challenges
  • Face-to-face and online professional development seminars and mentoring tied directly to practice
  • Job-embedded instructional support every day
