(Updated 29-Jan-2014)

RSP students can participate in the regular math and/or language art classes
that are collaboratively taught both by the RSP teacher and the core subject
teacher or in a pull out RSP math and language arts class taught by the RSP teacher
if available. These RSP students receive instruction in the grade level standards.
Modifications as stated in the Individualized Education Program are maintained.

**RSP
Algebra IP UC/CSU (2 sem.) Gr. 9-12 **

Student who qualify for RSP Algebra IP are enrolled in a math class utilizing the collaborative model. Algebra I is a college preparatory course aligned to the California Algebra I standards and designed for capable mathematics students. This course uses a modern approach that stresses mathematical structure. Topics such as linear equations, quadratic equations, functions, inequalities, polynomials, and linear graphing are studied.

An Algebra I student should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully completed all previous math courses. A recommendation from the student’s current math teacher in middle school will indicate the student has the motivation and sufficient mastery of math skills necessary to be successful in Algebra I.

**RSP Geometry P UC/CSU (2 sem.) Gr. 9-12**

Students who qualify for RSP Geometry P math are enrolled in a math class utilizing the collaborative model. Geometry P is aligned to the California State Standards and is a college preparatory mathematics course for ninth through twelfth grade students. Students enrolling in Geometry should have successfully completed both semesters of Algebra IP or both years of Algebra A and Algebra B, and have a good understanding of Algebra I concepts.

This is an advance mathematics course covering such topics as logic and reasoning, constructions: properties of plane closed figures and three dimensional figures, congruence, and similarity.

**RSP Algebra IIP UC/CSU (2 sem.) Gr. 9-12**

Students who qualify for RSP Algebra IIP are enrolled in a math class utilizing the collaborative model. Algebra IIP is an advanced College preparatory mathematics course for serious math students. Topics include problem solving and graphing with both linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, combinations, permutations, logarithms, arithmetic and geometric progressions, and complex numbers. Algebra II students should have demonstrated a readiness to succeed in this course by having successfully learned skills in Algebra I and Geometry. A recommendation by the student’s Geometry teacher will indicate the student has sufficient math skills necessary to be successful in Algebra II.

**RSP Study Skills (2 sem.)
Gr. 9-12**

Students may be assigned to a study skills class for one period a day. This class focuses on teaching study skills so the students can successfully pass their classes.

**RSP Careers/Transition (2 sem.) Gr. 12**

This course focuses on preparing students for the world of work. Students participate in classroom activities involving completion of job applications, interview techniques, and employment preparation. Students are placed on job sites for practical application of skills learned in the classroom.
