lessons are geared towards student ability levels. As we move into the Common Core State Standards for math, our concentration is on problem solving, as we continue to reinforce our strong computation skills through Simple Solutions. Technology is incorporated into math through the use of teaching videos, through lessons in the lab, and through the use of the Mathletics Program.
The math curriculum follows the California standards using Prentice Hall Mathematics with PH Success Net. Our Math Specialist provides a challenging curriculum. In both seventh and eighth grade, we have academic grouping, where the seventh graders follow either the PH course 2 or the course 3 curriculum, studying a combination of pre-algebra, fundamental geometry, and basic math skills. At the eighth grade level, students follow PH course 3 or Algebra 1 course work. The curriculum involves projects and technology, interactive group work, in addition to traditional whole-class instruction. Simple Solutions is our homework program. After school assistance is available three days per week.
