WELCOME TO College Preparatory Mathematics (CPM)! J In CPM courses, we value a broad range of skills and abilities that will prepare you for the world beyond high school, in any venture you pursue. We value:
·        Mathematical Understanding: Understanding is a prerequisite to remembering, connecting, and using mathematics.
·        Skill Proficiency: Skills are necessary to succeed at the mathematical tasks that students will encounter in these courses and beyond.
·        Problem Solving: Our students need to learn to use what they know and think logically about problems to devise effective strategies to find solutions.
·        Communication: Our students need to be able to use mathematical language and talk and write about their ideas effectively.
·        Justification: Our students should be able to give logical arguments to defend their reasoning both orally and in writing.
·        Mastery Over Time: We expect our students to continue to build broader and deeper understanding of the ideas in each course as the year progresses.
·        Multiple Ways of Seeing: We value breadth of thinking. Our students should seek, find, hear, and understand multiple ways to think about a given mathematical task.
·        Effective Team Work: In order to achieve many of the above-mentioned goals, our students need to work together. They need practice talking about mathematics and building deeper understanding by listening to the reasoning of other students. Therefore, it is essential that we place high value on students learning to work cooperatively.


I will supply you with all the necessary materials you need on a daily basis to complete in class tasks but YOU are responsible for bringing the following items with you to class every day.

* CPM Textbook (You may bring the hardback book or your IPad with electronic EBook)                           
* Pencil(s) & Eraser(s)

* Notebook/Binder with paper divided into two sections Classwork & Homework

UCSD’s Mentor Assistance Program

This September, UC San Diego will launch a new program, which will engage high school students in a mentoring relationship with an expert from a vast array of disciplines spanning the entire campus, from History, Marine Physical Sciences and Nanoengineering to Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Athletics and Computer Science. 

The mission for UCSD’s Mentor Assistance Program (MAP) is to provide a pathway for student researchers to gain access to UCSD scholars to mentor students in their own field of interest (i.e. independent study, class projects or Science Fair projects). 

Students may choose to communicate with a mentor over email or may indicate their interest to visit the mentor’s work environment. MAP is an opportunity for students to take the first step into a potential career path. MAP students will build an early foundation for success in their academic career.

MEChA Conference Volunteer Opportunity

It is with great pleasure that we, Movimiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztl├ín (M.E.Ch.A.) de San Diego State University (SDSU), would like to cordially invite you to our 45th annual High School Conference. The conference this year will be taking place on Saturday November 21, 2015 on our beloved campus from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. The theme for this year’s conference is: “Our Bronze Struggle: Revolutionizing Education with our Stories.”

M.E.Ch.A. de SDSU has existed for more than forty-three years now and throughout this time we have strongly advocated the importance of higher education and have made it our main focus to encourage students to graduate from high school and pursue a higher education, whether it may be at a community college or a 4-year university.

If you have any questions, are interested in hosting a workshop, or interested in volunteering, feel free to contact us at:
