Integrated Math 2A
Integrated Math is a comprehensive collection of mathematical concepts designed to give you a deeper understanding of the world around you. It includes ideas from algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and trigonometry, and teaches these subjects as interrelated disciplines. It’s likely that you’ve been studying some form of integrated math since elementary school. You will begin with polynomial expressions, including rational expressions. You will learn about quadratic equations and inequalities and solve them to find answers to real-world math problems. Finally, you will use this knowledge to examine polynomial functions.
