MS Accelerated Math
Math 6 teachers wishing to recommend students for the program can fill out a form on our website. Students can practice a test in Edulastic and work on their Math 7 skills by using a new ALEKS account. All of this information can be found on our website as well.
Get PD in your building!
View this flyer for information.
Be very careful to move students into new classes following the steps in the ALEKS guide. If not, courses will not be aligned to Ohio's Learning Standards. Even if you already created courses the "old" way, you can still create new courses and move students into them.
Below is a flowchart of the recommended pathways and percentages of high school math courses necessary to move students forward.
