excerpted from:

Crisis at the Core

Preparing All Students

for College and Work

a report from ACT


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


37% College Algebra Benchmark: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


Of all pre-college curricula, College Algebra Benchmark: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.


At PHS College Algebra Benchmark: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.

We College Algebra Benchmark: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.

Perhaps tonight s most important walk away
Perhaps tonight’s most important walk away. . . College Algebra Benchmark:

  • 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.

Algebra i basic skills lab
Algebra I College Algebra Benchmark: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.
