• All students should take as much math at the highest level possible, regardless of post-high school plans.  New students may be required to take a district or college placement test prior to enrolling in math class.  Oregon Universities require a C- or better in all core classes up to and including Algebra 2.  Math courses must be taken in sequence.  The key to success in any math course is practice.  Students  should expect to spend time outside of class studying in order to become proficient in mathematical concepts.  Many math courses are graded based on proficiency, requiring students to master course standards at a C level or higher.

    Required Materials for math classes: a 3-ring binder (1 to 2 inches) containing loose-leaf paper, graph paper,  pencils,  ruler,  and a  calculator. A scientific calculator, such as a TI-30XIIs, is required for GAP Math, Contemporary Topics, Algebra 1, and Geometry.  A graphing calculator, preferably a TI-83 or TI-84 or TI-Nspire series, is required for Algebra 2, Advanced Algebra Trig., AP  Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, and Honors Statistics.  Students with TI-89 and TI-Nspire CAS calculators will not be permitted to use them during testing.
