Welcome to the CBSD High School Mathematics Website
The Central Bucks School District math curriculum aims for mathematical power in all students. Our courses actively engage learners in this pursuit. We pull from a variety of resources to teach our curriculum which is based on the PA Common Core Standards. We are confident that by fully addressing the standards, our students will be fully prepared and will ultimately be successful on the PSSA, Pennsylvania Keystone Exams, SAT/ACT, and be prepared for college level mathematics classes (whether those classes are taken as AP courses in one of our high schools or in college).There are variety of courses offered for high school aged students in our three Central Bucks School District High Schools. We offer courses to meet the needs of all students including students completing their study of Algebra 1 up to and including 5 AP courses studying coursework typically learned in college (AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Statistics, and AP Computer Science A, AP Computer Science Principles). Pennsylvania has revised graduation requirements for all students in the class of 2022 and later. In addition to previous state and local graduation requirements, these students are required to take and reach proficiency on the PA Keystone Exams in Literature, Biology, and Algebra 1.The chart below outlines our sequence of courses from 6th grade through 12th grade. There are additional courses and options not listed in the chart, but most students will take one of the pathways listed below. After 11th grade Precalculus/Trig 3 many students will elect to take Calculus 1 rather than AP Calculus AB.Secondary Mathematics SequenceThere are several more math courses than what is listed in the sequence above. You can read more about additional classes in the program of studies available during program planning each year. Below you will find a visual of other courses we offer in a flow chart. If you have questions about the right course, please discuss with your teacher.
