## ALGEBRA A & ALGEBRA A SDAIE

This course is the first in a two-year series that covers all of the curricular standards of a first year algebra course. It includes extensive work with rational numbers, integral numbers, linear equations and graphing. Upon successfully completing this course students can enroll in either Algebra B or Algebra 1 P.

## ALGEBRA B P & ALGEBRA B P SDAIE

This course is the second in a two-year series that covers all of the curricular standards of a first year algebra course. It will continue the development of algebra skills focusing on graphing, linear and nonlinear functions. Upon successfully completing this course, students can enroll in Geometry P.

## ALGEBRA READINESS

Students who have consistently scored far below grade level on local assessments and course grades may be in need of an Intensive Intervention course. San Rafael High School offers a variety of Math courses designed to meet the needs of students in need of additional support and intervention. In 9^{th} and 10^{th} grade, students may be placed in Algebra Readiness, a class designed to insure that they are prepared to successfully enter grade level college preparatory courses. Students are placed in intervention classes based on Math Department Recommendation.

## MATH SUPPORT

Students who have consistently scored below grade level on local assessments and course grades may be in need of a Strategic Intervention course. San Rafael High School offers a variety of Math courses designed to meet the needs of students in need of addition support and intervention. In 9^{th} and 10^{th} grade, students may be placed in in Math Support which is designed to insure that they successfully complete grade level college preparatory course work and improve their basic math skills. Students are placed in intervention classes based on Math Department Recommendation.

## ALGEBRA 1 P

This course includes operations on signed numbers, solving equations and inequalities, working with graphing linear and nonlinear functions, solving systems of equations and inequalities, working with exponents and radicals, and various real-world applications.

## ALGEBRA 1 HP

Honors Algebra 1 for freshmen offers a wide range of topics for enrichment at an accelerated pace. Students are expected to complete a number of assignments and projects outside of class that connect to the curriculum of the College Prep Algebra 1.

## GEOMETRY A

Geometry A is the first course of a two-year sequence that is based on the core College Prep Geometry but has been modified to accommodate students who struggle with the pace and demands of the College Prep sequence. The primary goal is to provide all students with access to the rigorous state Geometry standards. Emphasis will be placed on exploration and discovery rather than formal proof to accommodate students with special language or reading needs. Students will be expected to explore and solve mathematical problems, think critically, prove geometric theorems, draw and use mathematical diagrams, read and use mathematical language of geometry correctly, work cooperatively with others and communicate ideas clearly.

## GEOMETRY B P

Geometry B is the second in a two –year sequence based on the core College Prep Geometry but has been modified to accommodate students who struggle with the pace and demands of the College Prep sequence. The primary goal is to provide all students with access to the rigorous state Geometry standards. Emphasis will be placed on exploration and discovery rather than formal proof to accommodate students with special language or reading needs.
