The mathematics curriculum is aligned with California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The goal of the mathematics curriculum is to develop mathematically powerful students. Mathematical power involves the ability to discern mathematical relationships, reason logically, and use mathematical techniques effectively. The focus of each course is a balance among understanding of basic skills, problem solving, and concept development.
