Contemporary Mathematics in Context 4 (CMIC 4)
CMIC 4 formalizes and extends the integrated development of high school mathematics along with the interwoven strands of algebra, functions, geometry, trigonometry, statistics and probability. Focused units of study connect these strands through an emphasis on data collection, multiple
representations, interpretation and prediction in an active and collaborative setting. Students will be able to use and apply mathematical concepts and skills involving: rates of change, modeling motion, logarithmic functions and data models, counting models, binomial distributions and statistical inference, polynomial and rational functions, functions and symbolic reasoning, space geometry, informatics, and problem solving, algorithms, and spreadsheets. Integrated Math courses emphasize the teaching of mathematics as problem solving, communication, and reasoning, and emphasize the connections among mathematical topics and between mathematics and other disciplines. The multi-period sequence of Integrated Math replaces the traditional Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II sequence of courses, and usually covers the following topics during a three- or four-year sequence: algebra, functions, geometry from both a synthetic and an algebraic perspective, trigonometry, statistics and probability, discrete mathematics, the conceptual underpinnings of calculus, and mathematical structure.
