Honors Geometry and Honors Advanced Algebra testing will be held at Tam, Drake and Redwood. If you are interested in enrolling in either of these classes you must take the placement exam for that course. Though the testing process is open to all students, honors classes are ideal for kids that love challenging mathematics course work and can justify their solutions to math problems clearly with words, diagrams, equations, and graphs. These students are expected to complete on average 45 minutes to 1 hour nightly on homework, projects, and other supplemental work. Students are expected to show perseverance in solving complex problems.
Dates and Locations: Please try to make the date at your high school. If you have a conflict, you may take the test at an alternate school. Deadline to sign up for a test is May 5, 2017 at 5 pm.
What to Bring:
There are two parts for a total length of 1.5 hours. Students may leave the exam when they finish. The exam is a combination of multiple choice and “worked out” problems. After the tests are scored, students will receive notification about next year’s placement. Every student who meets the minimum requirement on the test will be eligible to enroll the class.
Tam District will make every effort to get the results to you as quickly as possible; these will come in the form of a contract for enrollment or a letter letting you know that the standard was not met. If you have any questions, please contact your son’s or daughter’s current mathematics teacher or the teacher leader at the appropriate high school. Teacher Leader Information
