# INTEGRATED MATH 3, PART 1

## Price: $125 | Credits: 5 | Dept: Math | Course ID# 233-1

Integrated Math 3 is the third year of a three-year high school mathematics sequence. The program is designed to build upon each year, increasing in difficulty and application of patterns, modeling and conjectures to develop a student’s understanding and competency in mathematics. This is the first semester of Integrated Math 3, it is approved by the University of California A-G as mathematics (category C).

Upon completion of this course, the student is awarded 5 credits. Each credit corresponds to 15 hours of study. Of course, some students work more quickly than others, and some can devote more hours to study, so some students are able to complete the course in an accelerated rate.

## LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this course, students gain a comprehension of the following:

- Linear equations and inequalities.
- Linear functions.
