Mathematics Course Sequence
Our mathematics course sequence, which will be implemented in fall of 2025 through a phase-in model, in alignment with Oregon's 2+1 Model, offers a two-credit core high school math experience followed by a third-credit course aligned with students' postsecondary plans. This model aims to provide students with a solid understanding of core math concepts, tailored learning experiences, and exposure to deeper mathematical understanding. By fostering accessible, meaningful, challenging, and interesting learning environments, our sequence seeks to build students' identities as capable mathematicians. All math courses are based on Oregon Mathematics 2021 state standards, which prepare students for rigorous mathematical pursuits, including advanced topics like Calculus, thus setting the stage for success in higher education and future careers.
In grades K-10, students engage in grade-level math classes covering algebraic reasoning, numerical reasoning, geometric reasoning and measurement, and data reasoning and probability annually. The curriculum ensures clear learning progressions through mathematical domains, increasing in depth as students advance. Middle school courses, namely Integrated 6, Integrated 7, and Integrated 8, establish a foundation supporting readiness for high school and post-secondary mathematics. High school begins with Integrated 9 and Integrated 10 for 9th and 10th graders, fostering proficiency in standards. In the 11th and 12th grades, students choose from various options for their 3rd, and possibly 4th, credit math course(s), tailored to their needs and interests. These diverse, challenging courses align with students' future goals, emphasizing the importance of consistent math engagement throughout high school.
Students currently in the traditional Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II sequence will remain in that sequence and will not be adversely impacted by this phase-in change.
