Mathematics

math
The mathematics curriculum is aligned with the California Mathematics Common Core Standards. The courses are sequenced so that the knowledge and skills acquired in each course prepare students for the knowledge and skills to be learned in each sequential course. Students must earn 30 units of mathematics credit for graduation (completion of Algebra I required) and must pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) in mathematics.

Teaching and learning will focus on the following mathematical concepts: solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, working with two and three dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; drawing inferences about population based on samples; formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an in bivariate data with linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of equations; grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; and analyzing two and three dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence; and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.

Math 7 Accelerated

Course Number: 3709
Grade Level: 7
Course Length: One Year
Textbooks: Go Math 7

Math 7 HP is an accelerated course that condenses 1.5 years of instruction into the 7th grade year. Teaching and learning will focus on the following mathematical concepts: solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, working with two and three dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; drawing inferences about population based on samples; formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an in bivariate data with linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of equations; grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; and analyzing two and three dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence; and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.

Note: For the Honors course, students will be moving at an accelerated and much more rigorous pace. Students will be expected to complete all of the 7th grade course of study, as well as part of the 8th common core standards. This will allow the students to be on track to take higher level math courses in High School.

Math 8

Course Number: 3708
Grade Level: 8
Course Length: One Year

In grade eight, instructional will should focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. Students also work towards fluency with solving simple sets of two equations with two unknowns by inspection.

Math 8 Accelerated

Course Number: 3710
Grade Level: 8
Textbooks: Go Math & Int. I-Carnegie

Students will learn in greater depth than in the Math 8. For the Honors course, students will be moving at an accelerated and much more rigorous pace. Students can expect more projects, and working towards deeper understanding of math. Instructional time should focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. Students also work towards fluency with solving simple sets of two equations with two unknowns by inspection.

Integrated Math I

Course Number: 3711
Recommendation: Course
Length: One Year
Grade Level: 9-12
UC/CSU Requirement: C
Textbooks: Carnegie Learning Int’l 2012

The intent of the mathematics requirement is to enable students to develop the ability to think mathematically as well as to provide background and skills for classes and disciplines with specific mathematical content. Integrated Math combines key concepts from Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. This is a view that mathematics makes sense: it offers ways of understanding and thinking; and it is not just a collection of definitions, algorithms and/or theorems to memorize and apply.

Integrated Math I - Honors Program

Course Number: 3714
Recommendation: Teacher Recommendation 
Course Length: One Year
Grade Level: 9-12
UC/CSU Requirement: C
Textbooks: Carnegie Learning Int’l 2012

The intent of the mathematics requirement is to enable students to develop the ability to think mathematically as well as to provide background and skills for classes and disciplines with specific mathematical content. Integrated Math combines key concepts from Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. This is a view that mathematics makes sense: it offers ways of understanding and thinking; and it is not just a collection of definitions, algorithms and/or theorems to memorize and apply. Honors courses provide both breadth and depth of exploration in the subject area, developing writing, research, and analytical skills. The courses will offer content and/or experience that are demonstrably more challenging than what is offered through the regular college preparatory courses in the same field.
