In middle school,**students start on a path that will lead them all the way to college math**. The class sequence goes like this:

6th grade math

7th grade math

8th grade math

Algebra I

Geometry

Algebra II

Pre-Calculus

Calculus

Most students at Aki Kurose take **two math classes**: a grade-level standards class, and an enrichment class. This is to help all of our student mathematicians **grow as much as possible in math during the year**. Students are placed in math classes at Aki based on their performance in math the previous year, their SBA scores from multiple years, and teacher recommendation. Teachers are continually assessing student progress over the course of the year to determine their “just-right” math class. In general, an “honors” class is working one year ahead. If you get ahead in middle school math, you can take Algebra I and sometimes also Geometry when you are still in middle school. Working hard in middle school math will set you on a high school path toward college.

High School graduation requirements for class of 2024 include 3 credits of high school level math. That includes Algebra 1, Geometry, and a 3rd credit of math (see www.sbe.wa.gov for details).

In order to be set up to take 4 years of high school level math, you need to stay at or above grade level in middle school math. Most 4-year colleges require that students took 4 years of high school math.

Studies show **that if your student can keep up or
get ahead in math** in middle school and high school, they are **more likely**** to get into college, succeed in college, and get a higher paying job**
after graduation.

**Resources if your student needs math help or wants to work to get ahead:**

1. Aki Kurose offers several a**fter school programs** including homework club and extended day math classes. These are free. You can sign up in the main office.

2. Check the Source to keep track of assignments and grades. Call or email your student’s teacher to ask about missing assignments, extra practice work or test re-takes. Interpreters are available.

3. Have your student do **extra practice work at home using free online resources** such as Kahn Academy or IXL math. These are available here:
