Over the last few years, the introduction of Common Core mathematics curriculum in elementary, middle, and high
schools has been a source of confusion for many students and parents. These classes have adopted a style of instruction
called “Integrated Math,” which weaves together the many strands of mathematics throughout each school year, rather than
teaching discrete subjects like Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Pre-Calc. In the Common Core model, each math course
covers many or all of these topics, presented in real-world contexts with the intent of developing deeper meaning for mathematics.
