MAT210/220/230: Integrated Mathematics

The 200-level courses are geometry courses tied to algebraic processes. Students investigate lines, polygons, and vectors, in both two and three dimensions.

The 200-level courses are geometry courses tied to algebraic processes. Students investigate lines, polygons, and vectors, in both two and three dimensions. Right-triangle trigonometry is introduced, as are circles and parabolas, the latter viewed from a focus-directrix definition. Linear motion is explored, leading to the use of parameters to describe that motion and to an ongoing investigation of optimal paths of travel, and exploration motivating the frequent use of graphing calculators. A dynamic vision of geometry is further encouraged by viewing similarity and congruence through transformations. A study of the concurrence of special lines in a triangle allows for linear data analysis by the use of median-median lines.
