« Honors Math Placement Testing has completed! «
(Current TL Students Only)

Honors Courses offered in 2021-2022: 
Honors Algebra 2
Honors Alg 2/Honors Pre-Calculus Dual Course (junior course only)
Honors Pre-Calculus

Nice work, Mathematicians!


What happens next?

  • Your schedule for the 2021-2022 school year will be sent out the week of April 19th.  Verify you have been scheduled for the correct course.
  • Stay fresh on your skills!  Current Alg 2 students: remember, your test didn't contain all topics due to the 4x4 schedule.  Make sure you are familiar with ALL of the skills in your study guide below before entering Honors Pre-Calculus next year.

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, equations, and graphs.  The pace is faster and the problems are more challenging. These 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.  Students especially interested in a STEM career should consider enrolling in Honors.

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 not recommended to the honors course based on test score may still choose to take the course and will receive remediation information and support form the math department.  In those instances, a waiver process must be followed.  

You can contact the math department chair, Mrs. Reid (, or your math teacher if you have questions about this process.



Thank you, Math 8 students!
