## About Me

Hi PHHS Community! I have been teaching at PPHS for 13 years! I attended Santa Clara University and received a bachelor's degree in Finance. While working at Apple Computer as a financial analyst, I earned my MBA. Shortly thereafter, I decided to change careers and went to San Jose State University to receive a single subject credential in business and a supplementary credential in Math. Although I have taught business classes here at PHHS, I am now exclusively in the math department. I enjoy teaching and hope I am a positive influence on PHHS students!

## Math Courses I Teach

**CCSS Math 1 Grades 9 -12 (UC, CSU)**

*Prerequisites: None Common Core State Standards (CCSS)*

High School Math 1 is a required course, which is one year in length. The fundamental purpose of the CCSS Math 1 course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. It is the first course in a three-year college preparatory mathematics sequence. The sequence and content of CCSS Math 1, of CCSS Math 2 and of CCSS Math 3 follow the recommendations of the California State Standards and Framework documents published in 2013, Common Core State Standards Appendix A, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. This course satisfies 1 year of the Mathematics requirement in the East Side Union High School District. This course satisfies 1 year of the Mathematics requirement at University of California and California State University.

**CCSS Math 2 Grades 9 -12 (UC, CSU)**

*Prerequisites: D or better in CCSS Math 1 Common Core State Standards (CCSS)*

High School Math 2 is a required course that is one year in length. The focus is on quadratic expressions, equations, and functions; comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships from CCSS Math 1. This course includes standards from the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Some standards are repeated in multiple higher mathematics courses; therefore instructional notes, which appear in brackets, indicate what is appropriate for study in this particular course. This course satisfies 1 year of the Mathematics requirement in the East Side Union High School District. This course satisfies 1 year of the Mathematics requirement at University of California and California State University.

**CCSS Math 3 Grades 9 -12 (UC, CSU)**

*Prerequisites: C or better in CCSS Math 2 Common Core State Standards (CCSS)*

High School Math 3, a one-year course, is the last of the three-year college-preparatory sequence that prepares students to enter Math Analysis, Advanced Placement (AP) Statistics, Computer Science Principles, and in some cases, AP Calculus. It is in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Math 3 course that students integrate and apply the mathematics they have learned from CCSS Math 1 and CCSS Math 2. As with the first two years of Common Core Integrated Math, this third course also includes standards from the conceptual categories of Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Some standards are repeated in multiple higher mathematics courses; therefore instructional notes, which appear in brackets, indicate what is appropriate for study in this particular course. Standards that were limited in CCSS Math 1 and CCSS Math 2 no longer have those restrictions in CCSS Math 3. This course satisfies 1 year of the Mathematics requirement in the East Side Union High School District. This course satisfies 1 year of the Mathematics requirement at University of California and California State University.
