Mathematics Placement / Eligibility Requirements for 2020-21

All eligibility questions should be directed to Dr. Ciccone at pciccone@mendhamtwp.org

 

2019-20 Fifth and Sixth Graders:

All students in fifth and sixth grades will participate in mathematics placement tests in May 2020, to determine eligibility for accelerated mathematics. The placement tests are part of a matrix including teacher recommendations and ‘end-of-year’ mathematics grades, which are used to determine eligibility into accelerated mathematics in grades 6 (one section) and 7 (two sections). All accelerated and non-accelerated sections are heterogeneously grouped.

 

2019-2020 Seventh Graders:

Typically we will facilitate two sections of Grade 8 Math and three sections of Honors Algebra 1 in the 2019-2020 school year. The following criteria will be used to determine 8th grade mathematics placement;

 

Who is eligible for Honors Algebra 1?

1. Students who are currently taking Accelerated Math 7 AND earn a ‘year end math average’ greater than or equal to 79.5%.

2. Students who are currently taking Math 7 and earn a ‘year end math average’ greater than or equal to 93.5%.

Who is eligible for Grade 8 Math?

1. Students who are currently taking Accelerated Math 7 who earn ‘year end math average’ below 79.5%.

2. Students who are currently taking Math 7 and earn a ‘year end math average’ below 93.5%.
