SFUSD Mathematics Department
We are continuously working towards our vision that all students will make sense of rigorous mathematics in ways that are creative, interactive, and relevant in heterogeneous classrooms. Find out about how we are doing this by exploring our site!

De-tracking has a positive impact on all students. Find out more with these Quick Facts about Math and Tracking. This document is also available in Chinese and Spanish.
How one city got math right
In this editorial in the Hechinger Report, Jo Boaler, Alan Schoenfeld, Phil Daro, Harold Asturias, Patrick Callahan, and David Foster detail the changes made in SFUSD over the past five years and the results seen so far.
The key is conceptually rich courses, which benefit everybody, including those who go on to STEM fields. Going into content deeply helps all students move forward, and provides a more solid base for later math courses. All students get a solid foundation, and acceleration is offered in 11th and 12th grades. San Francisco Unified has developed a rich middle-school math curriculum that emphasizes depth of understanding, rigor and applications ... As a result, more students in the district are taking a fourth year of high-school mathematics — and taking advanced classes beyond Algebra 2 — than ever in its history.
