Graduation Requirement for Mathematics

  • All public high school students are required to meet statewide graduation requirements to earn a diploma. Specific graduation requirements exist for mathematics. The Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has a mathematics graduation requirements website that informs families, students, and educators about those requirements.
  • In the Issaquah School District, all students are required to successfully complete three years of mathematics while attending high school (in grades 9-12). These three years are generally Common Core (CC) Algebra 1, Common Core (CC) Geometry, and Common Core (CC) Algebra 2. Some students may begin the high school sequence in CC Geometry or CC Algebra 2.
  • Other graduation requirements are outlined in each high school's course catalog. (See links in table above.)

High School Math Recommendations from Selective Universities

This document summarizes what some selective universities (Harvard, MIT and Stanford) recommend for students' math courses in high school.

Calculator Recommendations

Scientific calculators are required for middle school and high school math courses through CC Geometry. Graphing calculators are required for CC Algebra 2 and above. See specific calculator recommendations here. If you are unable to purchase a graphing calculator, inquire at your high school about TI Nspires you can borrow for the school year.
