Welcome Parents and Class of 2014 Bret Crock bret.crock@dcsdk12.org

2
excerpted from: Crisis at the Core Preparing All Students for College and Work a report from ACT

3
Percentage of ACT-tested high school graduates that meet the College Algebra Benchmark: 13% took less than three years of math 13% Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry

4
37%Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry 55%Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, other Advanced Math (like College Algebra) 74%Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus

5
Of all pre-college curricula, the highest level of mathematics one studies in secondary school has the strongest continuing influence on bachelor’s degree completion. Finishing a course beyond the level of Algebra 2 (Geometry at PHS)... more than doubles the odds that a student who enters postsecondary education will complete a bachelor’s degree.

6
At PHS we recommend students advance to the next level if: 1. they have an A or B in a class. 2. they have a C in a class because they performed very well on tests, but not so well on other assigned work. bret.crock@dcsdk12.org

7
We do not recommend students advance to the next level if: 1. they have a C in a class because they performed poorly on tests, but did well on other assigned work. 2. they have a D or F in a class. bret.crock@dcsdk12.org

8
Perhaps tonight’s most important walk away... Three math credits are required for graduation from PHS. Four math credits are required for acceptance into a Colorado 4-year institution of higher education. Not all high school credits are created equally.

College Credit at PHS Through CU –Trigonometry –College Algebra –College Math –Prob / Stat –Pre Calculus AP Credit –AB Calculus –BC Calculus –Statistics 3 credits each $150 each class ($50 per credit hour) 4 credits 8 credits 3 credits Cost of AP Exam

10
Algebra I Basic Skills Lab For students who want to get through Algebra I in one year, but need some extra help to accomplish this. This class meets everyday, like any other class. Students receive elective credit, NOT math credit. Talk to your current middle school teacher if you believe this would be a good option.

Signing up for Honors Math courses The student must have the DESIRE to be in an honors course. The student must be willing to WORK HARDER than they have before in a math class. The student must be QUALIFIED.
