The California Department of Education (CDE) establishes standards for Mathematics and outlines information regarding what all students in California public schools should know and be able to do in mathematics, emphasizing computational and procedural skills, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving. Content Standards, Frameworks, Instructional Materials, Resources and Professional Development are all aligned to these outcomes.

MIDDLE SCHOOL - Grade 7 & 8
SDUHSD middle school students enrolled in an Essentials Level math class may participate in an SDUHSD Math Bridge opportunity to determine course enrollment in math for the following school year. There are two ways for students to participate in a math bridge opportunity to move from Essentials to grade-level math:
  1. Enrollment in an in-person summer school course or
  2. Participation in the Concurrent School Year Bridge Opportunity (Spanish). (Link to Concurrent Bridge Registration Form)
*Registration for the Concurrent School Year Bridge Opportunity will close on Friday, March 29, 2024.  Students interested in a bridge opportunity after this date may register for the in-person summer school course. 
  • Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project (MDTP)  - an assessment of preparedness for 7th-grade mathematics. The results of the MDTP provide information on next course enrollment options for students entering 7th grade. This online assessment is administered annually to 6th-grade students at the 5 feeder elementary schools - Cardiff, Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach.
  • Integrated Math B Honors Readiness Test (IMBHRT) -  an optional test for 6th-grade students designed to measure a student's readiness to take 8th-grade level Integrated Math B Honors as a 7th-grade student. This assessment is challenging and designed for students already on an accelerated math pathway. Any 6th-grade student who wishes to enroll in Integrated Math B Honors in 7th grade must take the IMBHRT and score 70% or higher.
*Registration for the Integrated Math B Honors Readiness Test (IMBHRT) for 24-25 is now closed. An August assessment date will be released in July 2024 for new families who have moved into the district.
