CURRICULUM SUPERVISOR
2014-2015
Regular Mathematics
 Designed for students with average ability in
mathematics.
 Continue the development of mathematical
concepts and processes that can be used to
solve real-world and mathematical problems
in preparation for high school Algebra and
Geometry.
Advanced Mathematics
 Very challenging and designed for students who are
mathematically talented.
 Accelerated by one grade level.
 Opportunity to complete high school Algebra I Honors in
8th grade.
The student successfully completing the Algebra I Honors
course will have one high school mathematics credit when
they enter 9th grade.
GEM Mathematics
 Extremely rigorous
 Accelerated by two grade levels.



6th Grade – Pre-Algebra
7th Grade – Algebra I Honors
8th Grade – Geometry Honors
 Designed for mature, mathematically talented students.
 Assignments are regularly given which may require many
hours beyond the school day to complete.
 Students are continuously monitored and must maintain
GEM critera.
The student successfully completing the Algebra I Honors
course and Geometry Honors course will have two high
school mathematics credits when they enter 9th grade.

Information about High School
Grade Point Averages
So Many GPAs!
 Unweighted
 Weighted
 Academic Core
 Bright Futures
The Unweighted GPA
 Includes EVERY high school course taken, except
courses that have been “forgiven.”
 Does not use +’s in the calculation.
 Does not award extra points for harder classes.
 Formula:
 A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1.
 Add points and divide by number of attempts.
The Academic Core GPA
 Includes all High School Level Core Courses
 English
-Mathematics
 Social Studies
-Science
 World Languages
 Does not include +’s in calculation.
 Awards .5 bonus points for any Honors, Advanced
Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB),
Advanced International Certificate of Education
(AICE) or Dual Enrollment (DE) course (.25 if course
is .5 credits).
The Weighted GPA
 Includes all courses taken in grades 9-12, except those
that have been “forgiven.”
 Bonus points are awarded for more rigorous courses:
 Honors Courses: 1 point per full credit
 AP, DE, IB, AICE Courses: 2 points per full credit
 The Weighted GPA is used for determining Class Rank.
The Bright Futures’ GPA
 The State of Florida calculates Bright Futures GPAs each
semester.
 There are two separate Bright Futures GPAs


Florida Academic and Florida Medallion Scholars
Gold Seal Vocational Scholars
 Does not consider +’s.
 FAS/FMS: Calculated on 15 specific core courses plus an
additional 3 academic electives if they will help student. This
is a weighted GPA that awards .5 points for any Honors, AP,
IB, AICE or DE courses (per full credit).
 Gold Seal: Calculated on 16 specific courses plus a 3 credit
vocational program. This is a weighted GPA that awards .5
points points for any Honors, AP, IB, AICE or DE courses (per
full credit).
