Enroll in Integrated Math 1 with Dolphin STEM Academy
Integrated Math is a comprehensive collection of mathematical concepts designed to give you a
deeper understanding of the world around you. It includes ideas from algebra, geometry,
probability and statistics, and trigonometry, and teaches them as interrelated disciplines. It’s
likely that you’ve been studying some form of integrated math since elementary school.
In Integrated Math 1A, you will begin with algebra. You will build on your understanding of
single-variable and two-variable expressions, equations, and inequalities. You will also learn
how to write equations and inequalities to represent and solve word problems.
This course will help you meet the following goals:
Perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with monomial, binomial, and other
Write and solve linear equations that represent a word problem or a real-life scenario.
Write and solve linear inequalities that represent a word problem or a real-life scenario.
Graph linear equations and inequalities on a coordinate plane.
Find the slope and intercepts of a linear equation.
Find a linear equation by looking at its graph.
Apply the slope-intercept form and point-slope form of an equation of a line.
Graph a system of linear equations and inequalities.
Solve linear systems using substitution, linear combinations, and addition.
To participate in this course, you should be able to do the following:
Complete basic operations with word-processing software, such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
Perform online research using various search engines and library databases.
Communicate through email and participate in discussion boards.
For a complete list of general skills that are required for participation in online courses, refer to
the Prerequisites section of the Plato Student Orientation document, found at the beginning of
Integrated Math 1A is a 0.5-credit course.

Course Pacing Guide
This course description and pacing guide is intended to help you stay on schedule with your
work. Note that your course instructor may modify the schedule to meet the specific needs of
Unit 1: Single-Variable Expressions
In this unit, you will begin by performing simple operations with monomial and binomial
expressions. You will then work with single-variable expressions, equations, and
inequalities. Finally, you will write equations and inequalities to represent and solve word
Unit 2: Two-Variable Equations, Inequalities, and Graphs
In this unit, you will learn to write equations with two variables to represent linear
relationships, graph the equations on a coordinate plane, and interpret the graphs to solve
word problems. You will also learn how to find the slope and intercepts of a linear
equation from its graph. To do this, you will use both the point-slope form and the slope-intercept form of the equation of a line.
Unit 3: Systems of Equations
In this unit, you will learn how to use systems of linear equations and linear inequalities to
represent and solve word problems. You will solve both types of systems by graphing.
You will also use other methods to solve these systems—including substitution, linear
combinations, and addition—to solve systems of linear equations.
