California Mathemetics Placement Policy

Senate Bill no. 359 California Mathematics Placement Act of 2015 states: School districts must have a fair, objective, and transparent mathematics placement policy for pupils entering grade 9. The Board Policy and two exhibits regarding Mathematics Placement Protocol was adopted by the Board on June 14, 2016.

Exhibit 6152.1 (2) 9th Grade Mathematics Placement Waiver

Exhibit 6152.1 Mathematics Placement Protocol for Students Entering Grade 9

Board Policy 6152.1 Placement in Mathematics Courses

**VUSD Math Course Sequence Beginning 2015-16**

Grade 7 | Math 7 | Math 7 Honors |

Grade 8 | Math 8 | Math 8 Honors (and Math 1 for 2015-2016 only) |

High School Grades 9 - 12 | Math 1 | Math 1 Honors (prerequisite Math 8 or 8 Honors) |

California's Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Appendix A: Designing High School Mathematics Courses Based on the Common Core State Standards

The Standards for Mathematical practice describe eight practices that mathematics educators at all levels (K-12) should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important "habits of mind" processes and proficiencies that both enable a student to gain mathematical expertise as well as demonstrate, apply and adapt that expertise to situations:

Parent Handbooks for Common Core State Standards in Mathematics For California Schools:

Characteristics of Mathematically Proficient Students - Three Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important "processes and proficiencies" with long-standing importance in mathematics education. (Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, p. 6)
