HONORS MATH PLACEMENT PROCEDURES
What Honors Math courses are offered at TL?
Who can sign up for Honors math courses?
Honors math courses are open to everyone! All students must take a placement exam prior to entry (study materials can be found below). The math department will make a recommendation about the most appropriate course level based on the results of the placement exam. Students who are recommended to the College Prep course based on test score may still choose to take the Honors course if there is room in the course. Student will receive remediation information and support from the math department. In those instances, a waiver process must be followed.
How are Honors courses different?
Do you love the elegance of mathematics? Does it make you happy that there is always more than one way to approach a math problem and yet the answer should make sense from every angle? Do you love being given something to ponder, without always being told what the answer is? So do we! And an Honors math class might be right for you.
Honors classes are ideal for students that love challenging mathematics course work and can justify their solutions to math problems clearly with words, diagrams and tables, equations, and graphs. Students especially interested in a STEM career should consider enrolling in Honors.
The pace is faster and the problems are more challenging. Honors students are expected to spend an average of 45 minutes to 1 hour nightly on homework, projects, and other supplemental work. Students are expected to show perseverance in solving complex problems.
