Mathematics Department Course Placement Criteria & Procedures

  •  

    In response to the standards-based initiative in the state of Pennsylvania, mathematics course content has increased in challenge and rigor. This shift prepares students for the 21st century learning necessary to maintain competitiveness in the global market. As such, the criteria for placement into higher level mathematics courses reflect the rigor of the Pennsylvania Common Core State Standards, providing appropriate learning environments for each student.

    • provide a textbook and on-line access
    • provide the independent study packet
    • provide an answer key
    • administer and grade the placement test
    • communicate placement for the upcoming school year with parents
