dc.description.abstract | Over four years ago, the math department at El Dorado High School was faced with a problem of an increasing
number of students who were not successful in Algebra I. Those students were failing both in the first semester and second
semester. Large numbers of students were taking only the required credits of math to graduate. Faced with this knowledge and
knowing that graduation requirements for math were going to increase for future classes, the math department made a decision to
create two new math classes: Transition Algebra was placed between Pre Algebra and Algebra I; and Transition Geometry was
placed between Algebra I and Geometry.
By examining students’ grades in Pre Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry in the three years prior to implementing the new math
classes and the three years after students could take the new math classes, we have answered two main question: are students
more successful in their math classes? And, have these two math classes met a need for our students that previously was
unfilled? | en |
