What are the possible courses for general education seventh graders?
7th Grade Math: Grade level course, majority of students are usually enrolled in this course.
Accelerated 7th Grade Math: The purpose of this course is to create a pathway for students wanting to take two years of college level mathematics in high school. Students will learn all 7th grade math content plus half the year of standards from 8th Grade Math. Therefore, students will learn a year and a half worth of mathematical content in a single school year. Students must take this course in order to enroll in Accelerated 8th Grade Math 1, which also covers 1 ½ years of curriculum. Students who take Advanced 8th Grade Math 1 will have their grade posted on the high school transcript. If the course is passed with a D grade or above, the student will earn five credits per semester.
How do I know if Accelerated 7th Grade Math will be a good fit for my child?
Accelerated Math classes cover 1 ½ years of curriculum in one year. For this reason, Accelerated Math candidates are students who pick up new concepts quickly and do not need a lot of practice time to gain a solid understanding of lessons taught. Accelerated Math students should have a strong grasp of 6th grade math as there is not time to review previously taught concepts throughout the year. Parents can review their child’s previous math performance to look for mostly advanced marks (A’s or 4’s) on their report cards and Standard Met or Standard Exceeded on state assessments.
