Math Enrichment + More aims to reinforce skills learned in the past year while preparing students for success in the upcoming year by following a teaching model that is in direct alignment with California Common Core and Traditional Educational Standards. Please review the detailed UC APPROVED curriculum below.

The Math and Science Classes are for students entering 6 Grade to 12 Grade in Fall 2023. If your child is entering 5th grade, he/she can enroll in Accelerated Math 6/Pre Algebra. The completion of our middle school and high school level math and science classes will allow your child to advance to the next math or science level in Fall 2023.

We will contact your child’s school in the last week of July. The one exception could be middle school-level math classes. Please contact your child’s middle school regarding advancement. Please review the curriculum your child will be learning during the 2023/2024 school year. Our classes will cover the entire year’s curriculum during the summer class. This summer is a great opportunity for your child to get exposed or advance their math or science level.

Traditional High School Math Classes (7th Grade to 11th Grade)

  • Algebra 1
  • Geometry
  • Algebra II/Trig
  • Math Analysis
  • Pre-Calculus Honor Curriculum
  • Calculus A/B
In this algebra course for first-year students, they will develop their ability to think symbolically. To meet the Common Core math standards, the students will explore the structure of mathematical expressions, perform arithmetic with polynomials and rational functions, create equations, and make deductions using good mathematical practices. They will learn how to write, solve, and plot linear and quadratic equations, including systems of two equations with two variables, using methods like factoring, completing the square, the quadratic formula, or graphing. Additionally, the students will be introduced to monomials, polynomials, inequalities, exponents, functions, rational expressions, ratios, and proportions, and they will apply their algebraic skills to solve various types of mathematical problems.
The aim of this course is to establish a strong base in geometry and introduce different concepts of mathematical proof and logical reasoning. The students will study parallel and perpendicular lines and their characteristics and measurements, polygons that are congruent or similar and their properties and measurements, how to transform points on a plane, the properties and measurements of lengths and angles in circles, and the areas, volumes, and measurements of spheres.
The Algebra II/Trigonometry course is designed as a prerequisite for Precalculus H. It covers topics such as the real number system, linear equations and inequalities with two or three variables, polynomials, complex numbers, and rational expressions. The students will delve into the concepts of relations and functions, focusing on linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic functions, conic sections, probability, and matrix algebra. Additionally, they will extensively study trigonometric functions, including inverse trigonometry, trigonometric equations, trigonometric identities, and applications of trigonometry.
This course is a branch of mathematics that deals with the properties of functions, limits, derivatives, and integrals. It is also known as Real Analysis or Advanced Calculus and is a higher-level course that is usually taken after Calculus. Math Analysis is a fundamental subject in mathematics that provides a rigorous treatment of the concepts of continuity, smoothness, and infinite processes. The study of Math Analysis is essential for students who plan to pursue careers in mathematics, physics, engineering, or other related fields, as it provides a strong foundation in the mathematical concepts and methods needed for advanced studies.
This course is intended for students who have successfully completed Algebra II and Trigonometry. It will offer an extensive study of all the essential topics required for the AP Calculus AB or BC exam.
