Math 2 Portfolio Group

The ARMS Integrated Math 2 Portfolio Group

DESCRIPTION

The ARMS Integrated Math 2 Portfolio Group takes place after school, but it is not a club. The group functions as a fast-paced three semester course with homework, classwork, and tests. This course is designed to cover the content of honors 9th grade math. Students should participate if they are dedicated to accelerating to take Calculus in 11th grade instead of waiting until 12th grade. We also have a math club for students who enjoy doing challenging math, and we encourage them to consider the Mathcounts club. Please see their math teacher for details regarding Mathcounts club.

7TH GRADE NOTIFICATION

Within the first six weeks of seventh grade, students participating in Integrated Math 2 Portfolio, parents, and guardians will be notified about the student’s achievement, if the student is not meeting course expectations.

At any point during the semester, if a 7th grade student is not meeting course expectations with the content, attendance, or management of achievement in BOTH their Math 7 Flex and their Integrated Math 2 Portfolio course, they will be recommended to withdraw from the portfolio course to focus on Math 7 Flex. Again, students are required to maintain at least an 85% at each of the three checkpoints described above. An overall average is not calculated. Students must also maintain a B+ or higher in their math flex class to continue with the portfolio group.

8TH GRADE NOTIFICATION

At any point during the semester, if an 8th grader is not meeting course expectations with the content, attendance, or management of achievement in BOTH their Algebra 8+ and their Integrated Math 2 Portfolio course, they will be withdrawn from the portfolio course to focus on Algebra 8+. Again, students are required to maintain at least an 85% at each of the three checkpoints described above. An overall average is not calculated. Students must also maintain a B+ or higher in their Algebra plus class to continue with the portfolio group.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Students will receive a certificate of completion of the portfolio course.

The portfolio group will be overseen by the ARMS and the ARHS Math Departments.
