iamrachelle Posted February 9, 2012 Share Posted February 9, 2012 Thought I'd check with the hive and see if any of you have used this test as a guage for whether or not your DC were ready for Algebra. My DD is finishing up a pre-algebra class right now (using Holt). I've heard such wonderful things about CLE 7 that I went ahead an ordered it. Now that I've had the opportunity to look through the curriculum I think she knows the majority of the material. I guess I'm just trying to figure out if CLE 7 is sooo good (includes tons of geometry, etc) that we should go ahead and use it, or if I should simply place her in Algebra 1. I definitely want her mad math skillz to be solid, and I believe in plenty of practice to help solidify skills, but at the same time I'm wondering if she wouldn't be a tad bored using the CLE. All this to say... since I'm worried about her not being "ready" for Algebra 1, I thought I would give her the Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test to see how she placed. If she scores well on the test, can I correctly assume that she is ready for Algebra 1 and place her accordingly? FWIW, she's 11 and finishing up 6th grade this year...
