Math Placement Criteria

Math Placement is determined at the district level. A letter regarding your student's current placement and the criteria for next year's placement will be (has been) sent home with your student.  A copy of the letters may be found in the Academic Locker.  A link to a summary of the criteria may also be found here:

 

Math Course Placement Criteria

 

Math 7 Students who meet grade and final exam criteria will have the opportunity to sit an Algebra 1 Placement Test for placement into Algebra in 8th grade.  If students wish to prepare for this placement exam, they should check the district website's Math Department Program study guides for topics to be covered (Algebra Placement Test Study Guide).  They may also want to take a look at the Math 8 Final Exam and Math 7 Accelerated Final Exam study guides for practice problems that may be on the Algebra 1 Placement Test.  Last year's Study Guides for these course are included in the Academic Locker below but you may also use the current year study guides that will be available on the district Math Department Programs webpage for additional practice problems.
