# INTEGRATED MATH 1

## ESSENTIAL CONCEPTS for INTEGRATED MATH 1

While these aren't the only concepts developed in Integrated Math 1, the following are considered to be the five most important ideas for students to understand by the end of the year.

1. Students understand the connections between multiple representations of linear functions (table, graph, rule, context) and can use these representations to reason about and solve a variety of real-world problems.

2. Students understand the connections between multiple representations of exponential functions (table, graph, rule, context) and can use these representations to reason about and solve a variety of real-world problems.

3. Students understand the characteristics (rate of change, function behavior, etc) of linear and exponential functions and can use these to model real-world situations.

4. Students understand that equations (and systems of equations) can be written to solve specific questions about real-life situations. Solutions to equations are values that make the equation true, and those solutions can be found using reasoning/guess-and-check, tables, graphs, technology, or algebraic manipulation.

5. Students understand that rigid motions produce congruent figures and they can use this to reason about transformations in the coordinate plane (perform transformations, determine congruence, etc.)
