Math Coordinators;

The message below may help you and your counselors guide students during this time of transition.

As you respond to student requests to change mathematics classes, please be aware that in almost every case, a combination of old core (Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2) and new core (Secondary I, II, III) courses will not meet graduation requirements.  In particular, the following sequences will NOT meet graduation requirements:
Algebra, Geometry, Secondary I
Algebra, Geometry, Secondary II
Secondary I, II, Algebra
Secondary I, II, Geometry

Courses which CAN be taken after Geometry or Secondary II to meet graduation requirements include:

Introductory Statistics

Mathematical Decision Making for Life

Modern Math
Mathematics of Personal Finance
Computer Programming

Many of the AAF courses have a Secondary III prerequisite, and thus may NOT be used to replace Secondary III. These courses include:

AP Statistics (can be taken concurrently with SMIII)

College Prep Math

Concurrent Enrollment 1010, 1030, 1040, 1050
IB Mathematical Studies

Please also be aware that since various districts and charter schools may be on different implementation timelines, it may be unwise to compare programs and offerings between your organization and others that may not be in the same place during this school year.

If you have any questions about the mathematics pathways leading to graduation, please do not hesitate to contact me.
