What is Integrated Math?
Integrated mathematics is used to describe the style of mathematics education which integrates many topics or strands of mathematics throughout each year of secondary school. Each math course in secondary school covers topics in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics and analysis. Nearly all countries throughout the world follow this type of curriculum. Under the new Common Core Standards adopted by most states in 2012, the only difference between a traditional American sequence and an integrated sequence is the order in which the topics are taught. By using integrated curricula students will be able to see the connections between algebra and geometry better.

In high school mathematics, the emphasis in instruction will be on interrelated ideas that connect the study of mathematics to science, technology, and engineering. Teachers will concentrate on teaching these big ideas using complex and challenging math content, enabling students to illustrate their thinking and apply their knowledge in many different ways. Students will learn how to use mathematics to analyze and respond to real-world issues and challenges, as they will be expected to do in college and the workplace.
