<< Subj: HS Course sequencing

I would like to hear from various people in various states on which
sequence your school or district takes for high school math courses. Do
you have the traditional Alg. I, Geom, Alg II, or do you do the two
Algebras first and then the Geometry? Why do you do it that way? What are
the benefits/disadvantages? >>

We are a small private school. For about half our students the sequence is:
8th grade: Alg I; 9th grade Alg II; 10 th grade Geom.; 11th grade Pre-Calc or
FST (functions, statistics & trig) ; 12th grade Pre-Calc or Calc.

For the others, the sequence is: 8th grade Pre-Alg.; 9th grade: Alg I; 10th
grade Geom.; 11th Alg II; 12th grade Pre-Calc or FST.

Although there are aspects of this system that are not ideal, it's seems to
work the best for us. We would someday like to revise it so everyone takes
FST and can still have time in their schedule for calculus.
