Mathematics

According to the California Math Framework (2013),

All students need a high-quality mathematics program designed to prepare them to graduate from high school ready for college and a career. In support of this goal, California adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with California Additions (CCSSM) in June 2010, replacing the 1997 statewide mathematics academic standards. As part of the modification of the CCSSM in January 2013, the California State Board of Education also approved higher mathematics standards organized into model courses (page 1).

The CCSSM include two types of standards: Eight Mathematical Practice Standards (the same at each grade level) and Mathematical Content Standards (different at each grade level). These standards address both “habits of mind” that students should develop to foster mathematical understanding and expertise, and also skills and knowledge – what students need to know and be able to do. The standards also call for mathematical practices and mathematical content to be connected as students engage in mathematical tasks (page 4).


In October 2013, the SUHSD adopted and Integrated Math pathway that replaces traditional year-long courses in algebra, geometry and intermediate algebra with Integrated Math I, II and III.  This pathway is described in the Common Core State Standards for Math as well as in the California Math Framework.
