Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2

Geometry and the Algebras in the Academic Design Program are integrated into the rest of the program with a strong emphasis on the Standards for Mathematical Practice. These are eight universal standards new within the Common Core that emphasize math thinking through all grades. They are as follows:

  1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
  2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
  4. Model with mathematics
  5. Use appropriate tools strategically
  6. Attend to precision
  7. Look for and make use of structure
  8. Look for and express regularity in reasoning
