Math & Common Core

Most Foothill math classes will pilot common core textbooks from two publishers during the first semester of the school year.

We're piloting the books to allow students and teachers to fully experience the materials before the district makes a long-term financial commitment with a single publisher.

We ask for your patience as teachers and students get acquainted with the new materials and during the transition from one book to the next. Courses will return to the regular textbooks second semester, but will be supplemented with materials to meet new requirements of the common core state standards.

If you have any questions, please contact math department chair Burt Dixon at or Vice Principal Jen Friesen at
