Standards & Framework
Paly Math Flow Chart: Flexible Pathways
Math at Paly
- It is our goal in the Palo Alto High Mathematics Department to place students in courses that provide the appropriate level of challenge. When placed appropriately, a committed student who puts in the amount of work required should be able to master the content of that course. 因为这门课是连续的, students who have not mastered a particular course have little chance of success in the course that follows in that sequence.
- For bet356亚洲版体育 students, 对特定课程的准备程度由现任老师决定, 谁既了解bet356亚洲版体育的课程设置，又了解学生的准备水平，并认真做好准备, 以学生的最佳利益为出发点，为学生提供专业推荐. Eighth grade teachers at our middle schools in the district place incoming freshman in one of the following courses: Alg 1, Geo, Geo H或Alg 2/Trig H(曾于八年级在地区修读Geo H的学生).
学生在他们的数学教育过程中有可能改变方向. Your student’s current math teacher, Teacher Advisor, Counselor, 数学教学领导将帮助做出这样的决定. Students showing academic responsibility, independence, 精通当前年度评估的人可能会考虑换一条车道. Students are encouraged to speak with the classroom teacher and the IL for support in choosing a new lane. 换到更高级的课程可能需要暑假打工.
这样学生就不会在课程中进一步落后, 上升期第一学期必须在第一次进度报告后一周内进行, 第二学期的上升期必须在学期的第一周进行.
第一个学期必须在第一个学期结束后的一周内进行, 第二学期必须在第二学期的第一周内完成. 只有在所请求的新类中有空间时才可能向下借.
If a student submits a lane change form before the administration of the second scheduled test of their current course, 那么新学校就不会有年级转移. 如果之后提交表格，所有年级都将转学.
Homework By Course/Lane
- All math classes assign homework daily.
- Please refer to Paly's course catalog for information on what a typical weekly HW load is for a particular class.
Progression To Next Level
- Students earning a D- or higher in both semesters of a regular lane course may continue on to the next course. However, students would be strongly encouraged to redeem their grade and shore up their understanding in summer school.
- Even the best summer school courses are crash courses that are not comparable in depth or breadth to the course work in our Honors or Advanced lane. Consequently, 所有的暑期课程只能获得普通的学分.
- bet356亚洲版体育提供的典型暑期课程有代数1、几何和代数2. Depending upon enrollment size, 第一学期和第二学期将分别提供为期3周的密集课程. 欲了解更多暑期学校课程和信息，请访问 http://www.pausd.org/student-supports/summer-school.
- 在完成bet356亚洲版体育的Alg 2毕业要求后, students can apply to take courses at accredited institutions for credit (including community colleges like Canada, Foothill, De Anza, if they are 16 or older). Pre-approval from both the Dept IL and the Assistant Principal of Instruction is a requirement. 未经事先批准的课程将被取消bet356亚洲版体育学分. 预先批准表格可在指导办公室获得. 在区外学习的课程只能获得常规球道学分.
Paly Math Electives
|几何或以上课程两个学期成绩均为C-或以上||Semester (UC approved)|
|Advanced Problem Solving
The objective of this course is to foster excellence in mathematics through problem solving and competition
|None||Four semesters available:
APS 1, 2, 3, and 4 (not UC approved)
|AP Statistics||参考play的课程目录，因为有多种途径进入AP统计||Year (UC approved / UC weighted)|
Placement and Course Challenge Process
Changing Math Placement
Students who feel they are not appropriately placed should meet with their teacher and counselor to determine if a schedule correction is needed (BP 6152.1). Within 10 school days of an initial placement decision or placement decision upon reevaluation, a student and their parent/guardian may appeal the decision to the Superintendent or designee.
Challenge by Examination
bet356亚洲版体育委员会政策允许高中生通过考试来挑战课程(BP 6155). This examination is aligned to state-adopted content standards in mathematics taught in the course being challenged. 如果学生成功挑战了一门课程, a grade based on their results and units will be added to their transcript with a note indicating that the requirement was met by examination.
Welcome to Paly! All new-to-district (or returning-to-district) students are required to take a math placement test in order to assist the school in placement of your child into a mathematics course commensurate with their foundation. 这个分班测试不会跟踪你的学生进入一个单一的课程序列. We have laning at Paly, and students can change lanes at various points throughout their high school career as fits their needs and performance. A few things of note:
- Do not sign up for the placement test unless you have received confirmation that your child has been assigned to Palo Alto High School.
- bet356官网在线将在课后提供春季分班测试 Friday April 21, 2023, in the Math department.
Ninth Grade Courses
- Algebra 1
recommended if they have passed Algebra in the 8th grade and have mastered 4 or fewer of the 7 MDTP Algebra strands as assessed by their Algebra teacher.
- Geometry H
recommended if they have mastered at least 5 of the 7 MDTP Algebra strands as assessed by their Algebra teacher.
- Algebra 2 / Trig H
- Problem Solving 1 (Sem1)
- Problem Solving 2 (Sem2)
- Students must complete 3 years of math including Algebra 2 at Paly to fulfill bet356亚洲版体育 graduation requirements and UC/CSU eligibility requirements.
- Students who want (or need) to repeat in 9th grade the course they completed in 8th grade can choose to take the corresponding lower level readiness test. For example, 八年级学过代数的学生可能需要巩固他们的数学基础. Thus, a student who has completed Algebra in 8th grade may still be placed into an Alg 1 class as a freshman. (这同样适用于在八年级学习几何的人.)
10-12th Grade Placement
Incoming 10-12th graders 从区外参加下列其中一项数学分班考试:
- Students who have completed a formal Algebra 1 class before enrolling at Paly will take a Geometry Readiness test for placement in one of our Geometry classes for sophomores: Geometry A or Geometry. This test covers all of the topics taught in Algebra I necessary to be successful in Geometry.
- 已完成代数1正式课程的学生 and Geometry (or have completed 2 years of an integrated Algebra/Geometry curriculum) will take a Readiness test for placement in one of our three Algebra II courses: Algebra 2/Trig H, Algebra 2/Trig A, or Algebra 2. 考试内容包括几何课程、二次曲线和三角函数.
- 已完成代数1正式课程的学生, Geometry, and Algebra II, 将参加bet356官网在线的三门微积分预科课程之一的分班测试:微积分预科, Intro to Analysis & Calculus, or Analysis H. 这个测试涵盖了bet356官网在线代数2的课程.
- 已完成代数1正式课程的学生, Geometry, Algebra II, 微积分预备课将会对bet356官网在线的一门微积分课程进行分班测试:微积分, AP Calculus AB, or AP Calculus BC. 这个测试涵盖了bet356官网在线的各种微积分预备课程.
Students who want (or need) to repeat the last course they took can choose to take the corresponding lower level readiness test. For example, a student who completed Geometry with a "D" likely needs to solidify their foundation in the subject. 他们可以参加几何准备测试，并被安置在bet356官网在线的一个几何课程在帕利. Students who have formally completed all required prerequisite courses can qualify for math courses beyond their age group if they perform well enough on the placement test to be placed in our Honors lane course. We do not place students ahead unless they have mastered the material covered in the preceding honors level course. For example, a student who has taken Geometry in 8th grade but does not prove competency in all topics covered in our Algebra 2 Readiness assessment will be placed into either Geo A or Geo H.
Additional Placement Test Info
所有的分班考试都是单项选择. We provide scratch paper. 它们都是不需要计算器就能完成的. 考试不需要特别的准备.
- The Algebra Readiness test takes 60 minutes.
- All other Readiness tests take 90 minutes.
