In light of the education experiences surrounding COVID-19, we see a greater need for students to solidify understanding and build a solid mathematical foundation. 7th grade mathematics is the cornerstone for understanding algebra, geometry, ratios and proportional reasoning, which are critical to the understanding of trigonometry and calculus. Students who select the 8th grade honors pathway should be proficient in these domains. The District is not able to provide summer courses as in previous years due to funding being reallocated. If students qualify for 8th grade Honors, they will have to be fully prepared to begin 8th grade in August. The following math rubric can be used in order to make informed decisions on which mathematics class is appropriate.
