Additionally, math teachers will be recommending a computer science (CS) elective in addition to a core math course. The computer science electives are a great way to expand your logic and problem solving skills. You should not plan to take a CS course in place of your math course, but it is a great supplement to your mathematics pathway. For an interactive tool that helps you choose the best CS course for you, go to this site.
For more detailed information, please review the Program of Studies on the school website and the Presentation below.
For 9th grade students, participating in Cocoa and Cram is a great opportunity to prepare for your first time taking exams.
American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 2020
PSATs and Next Steps
October PSAT scores have been posted to College Board and students received their individual score reports and a copy of the test book from their counselor.
For all 9th -11th graders, there are two important ways that you can utilize your results to improve your math proficiency:
1) Go to www.khanacademy.org/sat and follow the steps to connect your Khan Academy account to your College Board account. This will link your scores to provide you with individualized practice. Make sure that you also share your SAT progress with your math teacher so that they can support you. Practice on a regular basis.
2) Using the paper report and copy of the test booklet, go through your mistakes and work to understand these problems. See your math teacher or attend the math center if there are problems you still do not understand.
