High School Math Info

  • RCHS offers Integrated Math 1, 2, & 3, rather than Algebra, Geometry, & Algebra 2. Integrated Math courses teach the same concepts as the old sequence, just in a different order. Math 1 & 2 cover a mix of Algebra 1 & Geometry topics. Math 3 is very similar to Algebra 2.
  • We offer a summer school Bridge to High School Math course for incoming freshmen in order to prepare them for the rigor of high school math.
  • On a 4x4 block schedule, students have opportunities to get to advanced math courses like AP Calculus and/or AP Statistics after beginning in Math 1 as freshmen. Starting in their sophomore year, students can “double-up” in math by taking one math course in the fall and another in the spring. In order to do so, students should ask for this on their course request sheets and discuss these plans with their counselors.
