    Accelerated Math 7 Placement

    Proper Placement is the correct balance between

    challenge & enrichment vs. frustration and discouragement

    Initially, misplaced students begin to struggle and often

    become extremely overwhelmed

    Once on this rapidly accelerating trajectory it is often

    hard to get back on a more appropriate placement.

    Misplaced 6th grade Accelerated Math 7 students often

    end up repeating or taking remedial math courses at the

    high school level.
