Please answer
- Credit Only
- Grade and Credit
- Other

and State
Texas: credit only (counts against the 4 year HS math requirement)

I don't know how it is where you guys live but here where I'm at for the average high school student...

9th grade- Algebra I
10th grade- Geometry
11th grade- Algebra II
12th grade- Pre-Calculus(Optional because you only need three years of math)

You learn something new everyday. I had zero knowledge that 8th grade credit could be transferred to high school transcripts in most of the U.S..

When my son took geometry in 8th grade, it counted because it was taught at the high school during 1st period (kids were bussed to the high school and back for 2nd period).

I don't remember if Algebra I in 7th grade was counted as a grade or not.

This was in Evanston, IL

I agree- different schools do it differently. In my previous district, Algebra II was a Senior class. In the school my kids attend, it's a Sophomore class (but kids who are a year ahead take it Freshman year, along with many Sophomores and maybe some Juniors)). Some kids take it Junior year. I would call and talk to the nearby districts to see what they say, but it may vary.

You think 6th graders are developmentally ready for algebra?

I would be ecstatic if my 9th graders just knew basic math well. I don't know what it is with pushing things down, down, down when kids aren't learning well what they should be learning as it is.

I graduated in 2003 and that is what it was for the normal students. I was 2 year ahead of this schedule in AP courses, we did calc and trig as the remaining two years. Though I think it was only 2 years math requirement for regular students, 3 for community college bound, and 4 for the rest. It has been a while so I may be a little off but that is how I remember it.

I grew up in Maryland, I took Algebra in the 7th grade, then Geometry, Algebra II, PreCalc, then AP Calc and Stats. But I'm an exception.
