Summer assignments will be posted soon
The San Rafael Mathematics program consists of the following college prep offerings:
Our accelerated program, for students who have completed a year of algebra and/or a year of Geometry prior to enrolling at SRHS or who would like a more challenging math curricula, includes honors courses parallel to:
This program culminates in Advanced Placement Calculus at both the AB and BC levels and Advanced Placement Statistics.
To ensure that all students master the fundamentals of algebra required a diploma in the state of California, the curriculum of Algebra 1P has been broken down into two courses, Algebra A and Algebra B. These courses together are approved by the UC system to receive credit equivalent to Algebra 1P for eligibility.
Additionally, to provide access to the core Geometry curriculum for all students, the standards for Geometry have been split into two courses over two years Geometry A and Geometry B. The slower pace of these classes allows students with weaker basic math skills, learning challenges or language deficiencies to master the same standards as the Algebra 1P or Geometry P course.
We also have a two tiered Intervention Program to provide support for students who are not meeting the district standards. Students can enroll in Algebra Readiness as a support prior to or concurrently with Algebra A.
Departmentally standardized benchmark finals aligned to District adopted standards are administered in each class at the end of each semester. The scores on these finals are analyzed by the department. Weak areas are addressed using a vertical teams model. Skills are built into the curriculum of the prior course and spiraled throughout the courses that follow to enhance retention.
Homework reinforces principles, skills, concepts, and information taught in the classroom. The following is the Mathematics department policy on communication around homework and make-up work:
