Purpose of ma20
Purpose of MA20

This course is designed to support your student in basic skills as well as bridging those skills to the topics in their current math course.

Students take pre and post tests for each unit in order to show their growth and mastery of each topic.

This course does not require students to complete at home assignments, but does require full participation of all in-class activities.

Students have been selected for this class based on AIMS scores and their need for improvement to meet the more rigorous Arizona College & Career Ready Standards.


Your student was placed in MA20 due to his low score on AIMS math, which indicates that they are not performing at grade level.

As we move towards the new standardized testing format, the material will become increasingly more difficult. Intervention classes have been implemented in an attempt to bring struggling students back to grade level.

There is a possibility your student could return to their electives, if they demonstrate mastery of all skills in the intervention class and maintains an A or B in his regular math course.
