# Why Integrate Geometry and Algebra?

Integrated geometry is easier to understand, develops long-term retention and fluency, and raises college entrance exam scores.

Students who learn algebra and geometry together develop and maintain fluency in both subjects, raising scores on college entrance exams and enabling them to apply math to new situations like science and engineering.
