INTEGRATED MATH A ESSENTIALS                    Grade Level:  7
This course is for students who have had exposure to, but have not mastered the following 6th grade topics: connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division; using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; operations with positive and negative rational numbers; writing, interpreting, and using expressions, equations, and inequalities; statistical thinking representing and analyzing quantitative relationships between dependent and independent; developing an understanding of statistical variability; describing distributions; finding common factors and multiple; solve real-world problems involving area, surface area, and volume. This course is a below grade level course which will have an individualized remediation component, as well as cover essential Math A standards.  Essential Math A standards will include: analyzing proportional relationships; drawing, constructing and describing geometrical figures; finding angle measure, area, surface area, and volume, evaluating probability models.  Students will be expected to work collaboratively, individually and demonstrate their learning through the Standards of Mathematical Practice. Students successful in this course will be enrolled in Integrated Math B Essentials the following year; a bridge course will be available for students interested in enrolling in Integrated Math B.

INTEGRATED MATH A                                             Grade Level:  7
In Integrated Math A, students will develop an understanding of and applying proportional relationships; operations with rational numbers; expressions and linear equations; problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions; problems involving area, surface area and volume of two and three dimensional shapes; random sampling to generate data sets and learn the importance of representative samples for drawing inferences. Students will be expected to work collaboratively, individually and demonstrate their learning through the Standards of Mathematical Practice. Students will be exposed to rich instruction that develops their conceptual understanding, procedural skill, math fluency and application. Students successful in this course will be enrolled in Integrated Math B the following year.

INTEGRATED MATH A HONORS                              Grade Level:  7
Integrated Math A Honors is a challenging course designed for students who excel in math. Students in this course easily grasp higher level concepts and embrace rigorous curriculum. In Integrated Math A Honors, students will develop an understanding of and applying proportional relationships; operations with rational numbers; expressions and linear equations; problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions; problems involving area, surface area and volume of two and three dimensional shapes; random sampling to generate data sets and learn the importance of representative samples for drawing inferences. Students in this course will extend their learning of the standards with greater depth and rigor. Students will be expected to work collaboratively, individually and demonstrate their learning through the Standards of Mathematical Practice. Students will be exposed to rich instruction that develops their conceptual understanding, procedural skill, math fluency and application. Students successful in this course will be enrolled in Integrated Math B Honors the following year.

INTEGRATED MATH B ESSENTIALS                    Grade Level:   8
This course is for students who have had exposure to, but have not mastered the following 7th grade topics: analyzing proportional relationships; drawing, constructing and describing geometrical figures; finding angle measure, area, surface area, and volume, evaluating probability models. This course is a below grade level course which will have an individualized remediation component, as well as covering essential Math B standards.  Essential Math B standards will include: working with radicals and integer exponents; understanding the connection between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations; solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; using functions to model relationships between quantities; understanding congruence and similarity; applying the Pythagorean Theorem; investigate patterns of association in bi variate data.  Students will be expected to work collaboratively, individually and demonstrate their learning through the Standards of Mathematical Practice. Students successful in this course will be enrolled in Integrated Math 1 Readiness the following year; a bridge course will be available for students interested in enrolling in Integrated Math 1.

INTEGRATED MATH B                                          Grade Level:  8
In Integrated Math B, students will develop an understanding of formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations; modeling an association in bivariate data with linear equations; solving linear equations; solving systems of linear equations; grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; analyzing two- and three-dimensional figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence; understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. Students will be expected to work collaboratively, individually and demonstrate their learning through the Standards of Mathematical Practice. Students will be exposed to rich instruction that develops their conceptual understanding, procedural skill, math fluency and application. Students successful in this course will be enrolled in Integrated Math 1 the following year.

INTEGRATED MATH 1 HONORS/ACCELERATED (P)            Grade Level: 9
Integrated Math 1 Honors is a challenging course designed for students who excel in math. Students in this course easily grasp higher level concepts and embrace rigorous curriculum.
Integrated Math 1 Honors is the first course of an accelerated three year integrated math sequence that also includes Pre-Calculus. This course is a college prep course that meets the minimum graduation requirement for the state of California and follows the Integrated Pathway in the Common Core State Standards. Integrated Math 1 Honors will explore in greater depth and rigor the standards of Integrated Math 1 as well as additional Integrated Math 2 and Pre-Calculus topics. Students will extend their understanding of numerical manipulation to algebraic manipulation; synthesize understanding of function; deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships and systems of linear equations; explore arithmetic and geometric sequences; apply linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend; establish criteria for congruence based on rigid motions; apply the Pythagorean Theorem to the coordinate plane; represent and model with vectors and perform operations on vectors; perform operations on 2x2 and 3x3 matrices, matrix arithmetic, finding inverse matrices, and use matrices in applications.  Students will also begin working with quadratic functions, quadratic equations and rational exponents.  Students will be expected to work collaboratively, individually and demonstrate their learning through the Standards of Mathematical Practice. Students will be exposed to rich instruction that develops their conceptual understanding, procedural skill, problem solving skills, critical thinking abilities, and strengthen situational analysis abilities.
