Secondary Math Pathways

The San Leandro USD Mathematics program bases its core instruction on the California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, with implementation guidance from the CA Mathematics Framework.

While we follow the recommendations from the state framework as well as the Common Core State Standards Initiative on secondary math pathways and encourage all students to follow the traditional or standard math sequence as indicated in the pathway diagrams below, SLUSD recognizes that students and families may be interested in an accelerated math pathway.

The accelerated middle school math course pathways in SLUSD consists of a 3/2 compression course beginning in 7th grade. Participating students will engage with Math 7 and a portion of Math 8 standards in 7th grade, followed by the remainder of Math 8 and the full series of Algebra 1 standards in 8th grade.
