Connie Smith  Math

Course Description
NC Integrated Math 4 Honors continues to advance students’ understanding of mathematics along interwoven strands of algebra and functions, statistics and probability, geometry and trigonometry, and discrete mathematics. The primary focus is on advanced topics in the algebra/functions and geometry/trigonometry strands. These strands are unified by fundamental themes, by common topics, by mathematical practices, and by mathematical habits of mind. (CorePlus Mathematics: Contemporary Mathematics in Context)

Course Goals/Performance
NVN: Represent and model with vector quantities and perform operations on vectors.
NCN: Perform arithmetic operations with complex numbers and represent complex numbers and their operations on the complex plane.
NQ: Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems.
ASSE: Interpret the structure of expressions and write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems.
AAPR: Use polynomial identities to solve problems.
FIF: Analyze functions using different representations.
FBF: Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities and build new functions from existing functions.
FLE: Construct and compare linear and exponential models and solve problems and interpret expressions for functions in terms of the situation they model.
FTF: Extend the domain of trigonometric functions using the unit circle, model periodic phenomena with trigonometric functions, and prove and apply trigonometric identities.
GSRT: Apply trigonometry to general triangles.
GGPE: Translate between the geometric description and the equation for a conic section and use coordinates to prove simple geometric theorems algebraically.
SID: Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable and on two categorical and quantitative variables and interpret linear models.

Academic Requirements
The student must maintain at least an average of 60 or better to receive credit for this course.
In averaging ten week grades, the following percentages will be used:
Test average counts 40% (Projects will count as a test score and there will be a minimum of 3 major grades)
Quiz average counts 30% (Quizzes will be announced, unannounced, and cumulative)
Classwork/participation average counts 20%
Homework average counts 10%
NC Integrated Math IV will have a teacher made exam that counts 25% of the final grade.
