8 - Math Course Placement
In March, all rising 8th graders enrolled in Math 7 will take the Math 8 End of Course Assessment. The results of this assessment will be mailed home in April. The majority of students will be placed in Math 8. A small number of students who demonstrate proficiency of 85% or more of the Math 8 content will be placed in Algebra.
Students who are passionate about math have the option to choose Algebra as an elective course, taken in conjunction with Math 8.
Rising 8th graders who have successfully completed Algebra (with a grade of 75% or higher) and have demonstrated proficiency of 85% or higher in Math 8 content on the Math 8 End of Course Assessment will be placed in Honors Geometry in 8th grade.
