Note to Students and Parents:
Correct placement in mathematics is crucial in order to maximize learning. Choosing a class that is too easy for your abilities will result in boredom and too little learning. It will make colleges believe that you lack motivation. Choosing a class that is too difficult will result in frustration, low grades and incomplete learning. Your math teacher can advise you on your best choice for next year.
