The Math Department wants to make sure all SYHS students are proficient in mathematics by the time they graduate high school. Our pursuit towards creating proficient students stems from our focus on teaching the California Common Core Standards. More information on the Common Core Standards can be found here http://www.cde.ca.gov/be/st/ss/ .
The math department has a common grading scale in all math classes. Tests account for 60% of the student’s overall grade. Quizzes account for 15%. The district EOC (End of course, or final exam) accounts for 10%. Classwork and homework make up 15% of student’s grades.
There are many interventions to help students raise their grades in mathematics. Attached you will find a schedule for Beyond the Bells, which are week long tutoring sessions that allow students to retake their chapter exam. Preventions (test prep Saturdays) are also offered. For Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus please see your math teacher for tutoring dates and times.
