2 Math 6 (everyday) Middle School Middle School Math I Algebra 1 Middle School Math II Math II Math 7 Geometry Algebra 1 Algebra Topics Average Rigor Most Rigorous *HS Credit Above Average Rigor 6 th grade 7 th grade8 th grade Middle School Math II *SOL Stand Alone Tests all grades

3 Middle School Mathematics Math 6 everyday Math 6 everyday More time for activities More time for activities More time to develop concepts More time to develop concepts Fill in knowledge gaps ~ stress understanding Fill in knowledge gaps ~ stress understanding Allows more flexibility Allows more flexibility Students will be required to meet specific criteria for placement Students will be required to meet specific criteria for placement With Algebra Topics 8, students can still achieve advanced diploma status in high school With Algebra Topics 8, students can still achieve advanced diploma status in high school

4 High School Sequence ~ with Algebra Topics 8 Spotsylvania County Schools Recommended Course of Study in Mathematics Average Rigor It is recommended that all students pursue the study of mathematics at the most rigorous level possible. When appropriate students may change paths by attending summer school or by taking two classes at the same time.

5 Accelerated Path  Middle School Math I 6 th grade curriculum standards and part of the 7 th grade standards  Middle School Math II the rest of the 7 th grade curriculum standards and most of the 8 th grade standards

6 Advanced Placement Considerations the desire to accelerate in a rigorous sequence of mathematics; the desire to accelerate in a rigorous sequence of mathematics; a consistent A or B math average; a consistent A or B math average; the ability to grasp math concepts at an accelerated pace; the ability to grasp math concepts at an accelerated pace; the independent work habits to support the rigor of an accelerated course; the independent work habits to support the rigor of an accelerated course; a high interest in problem solving; a high interest in problem solving; a strong sense of number; a strong sense of number; a keen sense of knowing when and how to apply mathematical concepts; a keen sense of knowing when and how to apply mathematical concepts; a desire to think and reason critically; a desire to think and reason critically; the ability to handle frustration; the ability to handle frustration; the willingness to accept a challenge. the willingness to accept a challenge. a student who excels in all categories would be highly recommended to take an advanced sequence a student who excels in all categories would be highly recommended to take an advanced sequence
